Now that my basement storage space has been cleaned up I can get to my old photo albums. I'm really enjoying bringing some of those early photos to life by creating layouts using my favourites.

This was my daughter's first Christmas. She wasn't quite sure what was going on but loved the attention and toys. Being the older, my son did the hanging of the stockings and introduced her to the art of unwrapping gifts.

The sketch is a great one from Stuck?! designed by Laura Whitaker. This one was published December 1st so there's lots of time to get your entry posted for the draw for a prize.

This layout was done with various Christmas paper lines; Bo Bunny Christmas Collage, Simple Stories Cozy Christmas and Carta Bella so this is Christmas. Because all these lines used the same tones I had lots of variety to work with.

Embellishments are so much fun to create. The star on the tree provided the perfect place to journal the date.



  1. Those are the cutest babe's every :) Love the use of the "remember" title. Makes me feel nostalgic. Great page!
