How Sweet is this little 'Santa's Helper"?

Half way though December already and welcome to Post #299 - hard to believe both.  I started blogging in 2010 just after Autumn Escape as a new challenge at the time.  I am booked for AE2014 so looking forward to that too. .  
I had a play with Nic Howard's pressed metal pieces to make the tree.      Papers are Kaisercraft 'Turtle Dove' collection from last year.  I used the stickersheet to layer behind the tree and added a few more bits. 
 ... a few closeups.
 The little parcels were made using book paper.  A little bit of gauze was added for softness and texture.
How cute is this little 'Santa's helper'?

We have had a lovely surprise this weekend - a visit from our daughter and 2 DGS's - just what I needed as I hadn't seen them for 5 weeks and thought I would have to wait until Christmas. 

I have entered this layout into the Southern Girls Christmas Challenge.

Thanks so much for visiting today.

Until next time....
