{Christmas 1951}

I'm still working my way through the old family photos, I came across this one and knew I had to scrap it ;)  It's the actual photo Christmas card that my Dad in-law's family sent out in 1951.
You all know I love the old black & whites, but this one is extra special for sure! 

I used the November add-on kit from the Paper Bakery, and thought the vintage looking Santa and ornament papers worked perfectly!  My favorites...the little bits of confetti and the October Afternoon washi tape with the date written on it.

Thanks for stopping by today!
