I have been rumaging through some old photos. The first layout I am sharing with you features photos from 1999, when my son was just one.
The photos were from before I scrapbook. I wish I did scrapbook in those days so I might have written down what he got for Christmas but I didn't. In one of the photos, he was holding a monkey soft toy so I am guessing that was one of his present so my journalling went along this line.
I have decorated the layout with three little Christmas trees that I made with papers from Crate Paper Acorn Avenue. I know, not the traditional Christmassy papers but I like to be contrary.
I made the trees by punching out 1 1/2" squares...I used the little one from the twin Creative Memories Punch which I cut into 2 triangles. I stacked them up and added some brown paper for the trunk. I then lightly glue the pieces so it is easier to handle. I say lightly because I don't want too much glue clogging up my sewing machine.
I then stitched around the edges on my sewing machine.
I made a few and added them to my page. I also embellish them with some pearls.
I hope you like them. Have a very good Christmas and I hope Santa brings you some crafting goodies.
