Happy new year and my take on the december 24th sketch at SOUS!

I am a week late with what should have been my DT layout at SOUS for Christmas Eve. the reason for this is that I just had too much to do before i left for my Christmas vacation on the 19th, so I did not have time to finish it. Now I am back home after a wonderful vacation at my parents house. Good times with family and old friends, lots of lovely food, cold, but beautiful weather and last but not least happy children!! I love Christmas!

For my layout I have used a cute picture of my daughter and son on their celebration of Lucia (Saint Lucy's Day - a common celebration i Norway and Sweden) in their daycare/kindergarten on the 13th of december this year.

Have used some leftover tinsel (?) around the picture as the kids have this on their costumes. The letters for the title are really brown felt letters, but I used a looot of stickles on them to make them fit the rest. The swirls are actually one pearl/rhinestone swirl from Prima, but I cut it up to fit my layout better.

That was all for this year. Hope many of you will join the ongoing challenge at Stuck On U Sketches - open till January 7th! The only thing left to do is wish you all a Happy New Year, and I am doing that with this picture I took yesterday in our garden!
