Sunday Scrap Page: Sinterklaas

Welcome to another Scrap Page Sunday!

Today you see a very Dutch folklore page.
Sinterklaas is a bit like Father Christmas,but it is espially
a festival for children that ends on December 5.
You can read all about it HERE.

For my page I used Club Scrap Homestead papers
and Michael Strong Alphabet and medaillon stamps.

The letters are embossed with white embossing powder
on red paper. They are punched out with an oval punch.

These wooden tags came with the Homestead kit.
I colored them with brown ink and stamped the
to/from on it and the name are handwritten, like
they are ready to go on a present.

Here is Owen at a party from his mother's work.
It is the first time he came real close to Sinterklaas.
A big experience for him.

And here are all the boys with a "Piet" (helper of Sinterklaas)
hat on and they are having so much fun.
The little words that you see also came with the Homestead kit.
The brown circles are stamped with the little medaillon stamp
and pretend to be "pepernoten, a delicacy that is typical
for this time of year. You can find the recipe HERE.

Thank you for looking!
Have a creative day!
