Oh Goofy Santa, I Want to be a Maven!

Hi all! Yes, this is my second post of the day.

I decided to try my hand at another page using a sketch from the Sketches in Thyme challenge blog. This one happens to be for their Design Team Call they have going on right now. It ends tomorrow so I'm coming in under the wire.....Whew! a close one :)

Here's what I created:

using this sketch:
I turned mine "mirror image" and thought our goofy son would be a great subject! *giggle*
Aaron is a hoot! He is a big ole ham for the camera and loves making faces.

Here's the link to the Design Team Call:
