Hello, hello scrappy friends and happy Saturday to you!  How is your weekend going so far?  Is it a crafty one?

Today I have a layout that I created for Stuck?!  The sketch to follow for this challenge is a fun one with many possibilities!  Here is my take

This is me in 1978 sitting on Santa's lap.  I'm in the 5th grade and I STILL believed in Santa!  Oh, I would get so excited when I seen him.  I remember this photo being taken as if it was yesterday. 

For this layout I used an older Christmas collection by Crate Paper called Peppermint .  I have no idea why I've been hoarding it.  Sometimes I actually forget which collections I have stashed.  That's pretty bad, isn't it?  Anyway, most of the embellishments are from the collection as well.  I added some wooden accents and some paint splatters.  For my numbers I used Perfect Pearls in gold.  This was my first time using this and I love it!  I will be added more of this to my future layouts.  All I did was color over my acyrilic numbers with a perfect medium brush pen and then dipped a paint brush into the Perfect Pearls powder and brushed over the medium.  Easy Peasy and such a cool effect!  I also added 3D Crystal Lacquer over the top of the Perfect Pearls for a glossy look.

Here are some close ups for better detail
