{It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas}

Well, at least in my scrapbook studio!


(papers: Little Yellow Bicycle, alphas: American Crafts and My Little Shoebox, punches: Martha Stewart, crystal: Maya Road)
I had a picture taken with Santa every year 'till I was 15. Seriously. My parents never insisted, but it was one of those thingd that being an only child you just do because you know how happy it makes your Mom ;)  I only included up to age 10 for the frame because adding 5 more years would have made it huge. lol 
I printed all the photos in black and white since every year I wore red or white, except for age 8 where for some crazy reason (Donny Osmond was popular) I wore purple.
Oh, and I went with a white frame and painted the tiny clothespins white, because you know come Easter, I'll be doing the same thing with pics of me and the Easter Bunny. lol lol  Just kidding ;)  I plan on changing the ribbon to pink and hanging it in Gracie's room with photos of her.
Thanks for stopping by, here's a few more pics:

Cutest thing I've ever seen. I am going to make one just like it for my mom with photos of us kids.
I love all your layouts, you have such an eye for mixing colors and paper lines.

I love it! Now I only wished I took my girls every year instead of sporadically!
