Dear Santa

I orginally was going to use this for a page, for something along the lines of "writing my thank you cards" but instead I came up with this =)  For anyone who's wondering, yes...this was part of our Christmas pictures.  She just finished up opening up all her presents while I was taking pictures of her opening them, shortly thereafter my husband and I started opening up our Christmas presents/my birthday cards when she found one of our cards and started to write on one of the cards.  I thought it was cute, so I snapped a picture.  =) 

I'm entering this into the following challenges:
Cooking with Cricut - Christmas in July - Cricut & Scraps
Bitten By The Bug 2 - Christmas in July
Celebrate The Occasion - Challenge #72 - Star Struck

Thank you for stopping by!  I hope you enjoyed my project.
