Mireille- **BASICGREY**

I'm always fascinated by the different customs people follow in their country, especially when it comes to Christmas traditions. Mireille shares with us one of the Dutch traditions of Sinterklaas or Saint Nicholas who is the patron saint of children.



Sinterklaas
by Mireille Divjak

SUPPLIES
Patterned Paper: Basic Grey - Wassail Line *french hens * Cranberry Sauce *spice tea
Chipboard alpha's : Basic Grey
Ink: Colorbox
Glaze: Ranger
swirl: Prima marketing Inc
Stamp: Catslife Press
Ink: Archival

Journaling reads:
All of a sudden he was there.. in front of the Forest Hotel. Saint Nicholas.
He said "Hello Amber! So great that you are here. I heard from girl piet that you like her so much.
She has the flu so she cannot be here.. but she did bring a gift. This is from her and me for YOU!
- You got a real gift, and a big kiss!-

HOW TO
I inked the bare alphabet and used diamond glaze on it for extra shine. Printed the journaling on the backside of the patterned paper. Font = Adorable
Distressed all edges of the paper before adhering it.
