Memories ...

When I found these old photographs of my family back when we celebrated the Holiday's with our mother, I knew that I had to preserve the memories.  I can't tell you what year these are from but I would guess sometime in the early 1990's.  What wonderful treasures and I smile as I recall them.  I can almost hear the laughter and smell the scent of the tree.  My heart fills with joy.

This is the last of my six 2-page spreads planned for my Scrapbooking event.  I hope my guests enjoy creating them.  Isn't the lace wonderful?  It's gorgeous in real life and I am so glad that I found a spot for it on this page.  The pattern almost looks like Christmas trees when you see it up close.  How appropriate!  I used various stamp sets that I have which celebrate the Season.  Taken with Teal and Sahara Sand were the primary colors pulled from our Holiday Lounge designer series paper.  The Bella Blue paper along the bottom is beautiful.  Using both Very Vanilla and Whisper White cardstock added a vintage look that complimented the lace.  Circle, star, tag, and square punches made the embellishments simple.

Thank you for spending time with me today.
