This is my older brother and I (yes that is right ~ I am dressed in yellow and brown NOT traditional Christmas dressy colors or pink!!!) sitting on the fireplace hearth. She took a photo of us kids every year on that hearth until she passed away. It is hard to see here, but she made our stockings. I still have mine!
Here is the sketch.
Here is a close up of the ric rac on the stockings and the card basket. I wanted to put ric rac around the entire page, but it was a bit too much!! I journaled on a stocking with gold stickles around the edges.
I thought the gold pointsettia fit right in with the decor. I used holly leaves with stickles.
Here is another look at the layout. Thanks for looking back in time with me!!
