Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge # 8-Miracle on 34th Street

Come create with us.. @
We have blog candy give-away this week... come make a project of any kind and enter to win.....

Since the movie is all about deciding if you really believe in Santa Clause or not I decided to scrapbook a few pictures we took this week.. This is so huge for my little DS because this is the first time we have and memory of Zach even entertaining the thought of wanting to visit with Santa. He is usually the child that is the furthest away sitting on mom, dad or a big brother's lap - NOT on Santa's... Zach was a little nervous and luckily he got to take his sweet time because he was the only kid even visiting with him at all.. We have two son's with birthdays front and back of Halloween and we just didn't get around to having a birthday party for Zach. Dad had taken this week off of work so Mom and Dad took Zach for a special date to make a "Build -a- Bear" all of his own. His big sister had just attended a b-day party at "Build -a- Bear" and she had looked on the computer to see what she might choose at the party and Zach saw the Zebra and that is all that was on his brain for weeks.. We had a great time watching him create his Zebra. Zach named his after a favorite cousin.. So sweet. The girl helping Zach asked if the Zebra was stuffed just right and he said " he is just perfect for snuggling" he didn't want to change a thing. Zach was so excited to show his new Zebra to Santa he even let him hold it while he talked to him. What a magical day.. We created a new friend. Visited with an new/old friend. Went to lunch just the three of us and cute little Zach is still dragging his Zebra with him every were he goes. Oh to be a child again.

What a fabulous layout! This is one of my all-time fave movies, so I better do this challenge for sure! In fact, the other night when some girlfriends and I went to see Twilight at the mall, we got our picture taken with Santa, so maybe I'll scrap that! Thanks for the inspiration!
