{again!}

**I've had so many emails the last few weeks about a project I made last December, here it is again for all of you wanting to see the photos**

I had a picture taken with Santa every year 'till I was 15. Seriously. My parents never insisted, but it was one of those things 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 & 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.
Here are some close up pics:




 
Thanks for the sweet emails asking about my Santa & me frame, I appreciate all your wonderful comments!  Yes, I do already have this hanging this year, and no, I didn't store this away with our other Christmas decor. I ended up adding family pictures to it, along with a burlap bow and other embellishments, so it's been hanging since January of this year ;)  I just removed all the Santa photos and other embellishments and those were all packed away in the attic with our Christmas decor.
 
As always, thanks for stopping by!

Wow! This is pure genius! This is a unique and so personalised Christmas decor. I've never made any scrapbook style home decor, but I think I might try this...

I remember this from last year, and I still love it! I guess you're kind of glad they made you take your photo with Santa for so long now, right?
