Sexy Santa by Marilyn

Hello everyone!!  I can't believe is almost the last days of the year and my last project like design team member for Berry71Bleu. It was a wonderful year in this team, thanks Marivic!!  This month Kay is hosting the December challenge that is all about..."joy" and I made a page about one hobby that brings me joy and I'm not talking about scrapbooking, lol! that I love it!
 I also enjoy photography or in other words take photos because I'm not a professional, I'm just a mom with a camera in hand trying to capture these little daily moments and the important ones, too.  I took this picture to my biggest niece Nerymar, she is a little shy girl  but the day that she was wearing this Santa costume, she was projecting a positive attitude like a  real model,  I called the sexy Santa and I can captured through my camera lenses. 
This month I worked with the beautiful UHK papers- Fruits of the Forest Collection. and Liquitex acrylic paints.

I also used some cheesecloth, washi tape and molding paste.

I added some flowers, pearls and corrugated cardboard.

You can see here, the gorgeous handmade tag by Marivic that you can buy in her shop....HERE

Here are all the December challenge details...

We have a two-part challenge this month.  This time of year is to reflect on the past & to look forward on what is yet to come.  It's a season for being thankful, to surround yourself with loved ones & to enjoy the simple pleasures life has to offer.  Many call this the 'most joyous time of year'.  

With this in mind the December challenge is simply: Joy.  What brings you Joy?  What always puts a smile on your face?  Joy can be interpreted in many ways.  Think about what person, place, activity, pet, hobby or simple pleasure gives you joy.  This can be anything--that first warm cup of morning coffee, reading your favorite book, your family, your dog cuddling up next to you!  Think outside of the box.
The second part of this challenge is that you must include journaling.  Your journaling must be at least 3 sentences or more.  Jotting down places & dates do not count.  I want you to document your thoughts & explain why the subject you chose to scrap brings you joy.

Here's the challenge board to bring you some inspiration.
