Christmas in February? . . . Why Not! . . . s000000 I know everything is suppose to be all “hearts and flowers” this month but I work at a little slower pace than the rest of the world . . . soooooooo here is a picture of the layout that I completed in January (which was just yesterday) of a Christmas both in the past and in the present . . . my good friend Christie designed this layout for a class at PSB and when I saw it I knew exactly what pictures would go on it . . . and of course being me I made a few changes from Christie’s original layout . . . like I used cream cardstock for the background instead of the original green and as I seem to be going through a glitz period I added glitter glue all over the place . . .
I titled the page Merry Christmas 1922 because the black and white photos are of my mother-in-law (when she was 23 months old) and of the Christmas tree and presents she received that year . . . back in those days cameras were still a pretty rare item for the average person to own and indoor flash lighting did not come with the cameras so all pictures were taken outside which in itself makes these 2 pictures interesting . . . the color pictures show the gifts and tree decorations that have survived through the years . . . one of the dolls, the rocking chair and 5 ornaments (the ornaments were on our Christmas tree this year) . . . my husband and brother-in-law threw the doll and ornaments in a dumpster as they didn’t think anyone would want something that old – silly men – I of course then had to do a little dumpster diving to retrieve them . . . below is a close up picture of each of the pages . . .
