I used Ambowife live laugh and love piece for my cut out

Clip art for the wise men

I embossed paper 8 to gray besides using the green embossed paper.

Many years ago on Christmas eve our children would get excited to visit Santa for the last time before the big event, Christmas Day. As we would leave the house my husband would slip away and become the Community Santa as he has done for many years. Our children would wait in line with other children awaiting Santa to arrive on the big red fire engine. Santa would greet the crowd sit in a old wooden chair and listen to their wishes for the last time. As each of our children would get old enough to figure out that Dad was Santa they were entrusted to keep the Christmas Secret. As years past and Grandchildren arrived Christmas eve became the big event ounce more. I with my adult children and the grandkids would leave the house to visit Santa as my husband would slip away and make the transformation to Santa. Again as one discovered the Christmas secret they were entrusted not to tell brothers, sisters or cousins. My husband has since retired and the Grandkids are in their teens. Now the family sits around the Christmas tree and tells stories and swear they never told “ OUR CHRISTMAS SECRET”.

I love your story, too. Good luck on this fabulous challenge. I like the way the frame is the mantle for stockings, too.

Great story and great title work! I like how you've layered the frames to have the stocking hung under the photo. Love the start in the right corner, did it and camels come with the kit? If so, I think I'm missing those pieces.
