Better Not Pout

This first paragraph is from Alda, founder of the Flying Unicorn:
You may watch, you my have tuned out, but there is no doubt we know what happens on  American Idol every week. We welcome  Idol - Unicorn Style  This is an on going  weekly challenge. Every week  there will  be a new  music  theme to  scrap. When Idol starts eliminations will occur by   The final two contestants, yes like Idol, we  will bring them to vote  … Everyone is welcome to play along even the Creative Team !  If you are ready  .. then head over to the auditions !

You have until 8pm est January 10th to audition for the first round.  Grand prize winner will receive a $100 gift certificate to the Flying Unicorn store.

Here is my entry.  My song is Santa Claus is Coming to Town.  This also is grandbaby Sophine's scrapbooking debut.  Her other grandma is a photographer.  This is the first photo taken during the two month photo shoot.  It was such a surprise because she rarely pouts.  I need to hurry and scrap another photo so you can see her smiling.  But this photo was perfect for the song lyrics.

I used the Scrap Cake Cozy Christmas paper collection from the Flying Unicorn store. This includes fussy cutting all the various tags and doilies around the photo as well as the ornaments-- and the two scallop borders along the bottom. I used various Ranger distress inks. All the flowers are also from the Flying Unicorn Store. The white pearls and pink wispy pearls are from my stash. The circle embellie is an old K& Co. The pine leaves are the new Tim Holtz sissex die. The large Santa image is from Vintage Moth. I searched high and low to find one that fit just right in the crook of that label to be looking at Sophine. Alphas are my faves from Websters Pages. I love this Scrap Cake paper line because the colors are so muted, perfect to focus on the photo.
