HNC_1/2_Declan's Elf

HNC_1/2_Declan's Elf

Finished the HNC just now, 5:30 am, so I will be back to LSL on all the beautiful HNC layouts later today! Fun challenge. I may have been a bit literal with the white space.

TFL. Credits are in EXIF and I'll add links later.... I knew as soon as I saw the "elf" that a collection with the words "Kitschy Christmas" would probably work, LOL.

DGS #2, 5 year old Declan got lots of (mixed) reactions from family members on this teacher gift. I used it as my screensaver on my iPhone all throughout the holidays and it made me laugh every time I looked at it.

Journaling: Declan went shopping and chose this jolly elf as a gift for his pre-school teacher. I hope she likes it as much as I do.

    Ahhh.. Dot sweet photos and Declan. That elf does make me smile and I love how the collection fits with it. Great use of white space and great layout.
    I think it is a great choice - my friends 10 year old chose a snow globe for his Year 4 teacher too! I think the white/blue bacground is perfect and you were spot on with the kitschy embellishments - wonderfully retro! Love his little cute face too!!!
    This is just adorable! Declan chose a great present for his teacher and I love how you used Syndee's collection on this layout.
    Such and adorable layout. I love that collection and it goes so well with your photos. Declan and that elf are so cute!
    Darling page and I just love the story too. Beautifully scrapped and perfect for the challenge too.
    Awesome job with the embellishment cluster around the photo and I love the Santa cluster in the upper left corner. Your literal white space is great!
    This is adorable Dot!!!!
    What a great page. How sweet that Declan was allowed to do his own shopping - great training! I like your choice of "white" white space.
    Wonderful layout Dot. Great photos and I love all the whimsy and fun on the page! I really like the mixed patterns with the fun holiday colors too. It's just a great page!
    What a fun gift! I wish I was Declan's teacher, :D I think that "Kitschy Christmas" must have been made with this elf in mind. Love the expression on Declan's face, too! Great LO -- and LOL to the "white" space. Yup. Literal.
