Christmas 1966

I love the photos I borrowed from Grandma B. In that stack I found 3 pictures from 1966- Christmas. Looking at those pictures my mind begins to race- kind of like an old movie. I see a happy young couple, their son in brand new soft foot pajamas, enjoying his first "real" Christmas. A new baby boy sleeping all warm and cozy in the bassinet that is now in the living room. The Christmas tree decorated so lovingly, topped off with a layer of silver "icicles". Snow falling silently to the ground. Gifts wrapped and placed under the tree-providing temptation too great for an almost 2 year old.
A lot has changed since that Christmas long ago. The boys are grown now with children of their own. And Sock is no longer there to share in on the excitement. The decorations are more modern. The amount of presents has greatly increased. LOL
Some things are pretty much still the same- Hubby still finds presents much too tempting. Some times if we are lucky, we have snow for Christmas. The LOVE will always be there!!

This is an 8x8 lo for Sock's Memorial album. I think the funky, retro papers work perfect for this layout. And the Christmas Cheer Cricut cartridge has that 60's feel to it.

The title was cut with the Cricut, and the faux stitching was done with a pen. Two eyelets were added for the ornaments to "hang" from.

Ornaments hung with gold cording, and accented with just a bit of glitter.

Pop dots hold them in place.

The ribbon tab is held in place with an over-sized staple.

The tree was cut with Christmas Cheer, and pop dotted before being added to my layout.

Let me know what you think.

Until later~
