Santa Baby Blog Hop

If you are hopping in the Cookies for Santa Hop CLICK HERE.

Welcome to the 

hosted by ConnieCanCrop.

If you started hopping at the beginning , 
you should have arrived here from Pam's blog. 

Today I'm sharing a layout of my wonderful in-laws.

For several years, Ron & Marilyn played Santa and Mrs. Claus for the local small train association.
In 1996, my hubby was in charge of the company holiday party.  
He convinced my in-laws that even adults in business would appreciate a visit from Santa. 
He was of course...right (but don't tell him that.)

We had a professional photographer there to capture the event and they took this photo.

We lost my sweet mother-in-law in 2001 and my father-in-law in 2010, so this is one of our most treasured memories.  We know that they are enjoying heaven but we miss them greatly.

It is a very simple layout, using just the photo, a little journaling and some
adhesive vinyl stickers. 

Now for the good stuff.  We can't have a hop based on Santa and not give away some great goodies.

Connie and our wonderful sponsor Betsy Flot are giving away, 
Betsy's  awesome book,  Progressions of Expressions Volume 2.

This wonderful book is filled with thousands of scrapbook page titles, 
card sentiments and journaling prompts and more. 

Entering this giveaway is easy, just follow the blogs on the hop and comment on each one.

 Happy Crafting

Up next is Angela.
