This photo was taken of me at Christmas 1965 when I was seven years old. I don't look very happy, do I? I cannot remember the doll I'm holding but I do remember the one behind me. My Mother still has her but she lost her socks many years ago and now has one wonky eye!
I've been meaning to scrap this photo for a while. Unfortunately it is the only one I have of that Christmas, and being averse to scrapping single photos on layouts, it's been on my pinboard for ages, waiting for me to be inspired. Luckily, at the weekend, I came across Ruth's Christmas Challenge and decided to follow her rules today with this layout.
I have used DaisyD's papers, cards and alphabet letters from my stash which are all in vintage style and in Christmassy colours, layering up the papers and elements to make the page 3D. I printed the quotation onto one of the cards in the DaisyD's set and layered the green brackets on top.
As part of this challenge, I wanted to record my childhood Christmas Memories, so I used a second vintage card to write on, added a pull-tab, and this will slide underneath the carol-singing paper, to be read by anyone in the future.
I seem to be doing a few Christmas layouts lately, and with the those that I have done in the past of my two daughters at Christmas, I think I may have to start another album to keep them in. Hmmm ...... an excuse to buy more stash I think!
