Tuesday Challenge 12/3/19: Christmas Song - 6 White Boomers

MariJ
A few years ago Jody introduced me to the Australian Christmas song, “Six White Boomers”.   The story goes that since Christmas comes in the middle of summer in Australia it’s too hot for Santa’s reindeer so his sleigh is pulled by 6 white boomers (kangaroos).  Jody had me listen to the song and she created a CT layout about it.  And being Jody it didn’t faze her when she couldn’t find white boomer embellishments, she just made her own out of white flowers!  You can see her layout HERE and listen to a YouTube version of the song HERE,  (skip the ad after a few seconds).
Since I’ve already made a few layouts in previous years about my favorite Christmas song, when I saw this collection I immediately thought of Jody and had to create a page about it.  It’s a really catchy tune and is now running through my head.
For this layout I used:
SNU SS Styles: Shadow Me
Carin Grobe Design: Six White Boomers

Here’s a photo of Jody’s layout if you don’t want to use Jody’s link.  My paper already had the song written on it, Jody typed it all herself!   I created mine myself, then went looking for Jody’s; funny they look somewhat alike.

What a clever idea! I can see your inspiration from Jody's page, but this is really your own. And it's adorable! Well, we don't have "boomers" here in Florida (that I know of, lol) but we do have decorated palm trees.
