A Christmas layout? Yes, a Christmas layout. A small one ... bear with me. This LO was taken from the Stampalooza's Monthly Scrapbook Challenge on the SU Demo board on SCS. When I started this project I had the date set as April 15, 2009 but it was actually 2008. I was too far in to back so I pressed on. The sketch was done as 12" x 12" and I wanted to do a 6" x 6" so I reworked it. I think I kept most of the design elements but you take a look and judge.
As I look back on Christmas there was so much going on that I missed, but it's in their eyes, the fear (holidays were not exactly top priority in their previous situation) the excitement and the homesickness. We tried to make it as much fun as we knew how. However, it was our first Christmas with these little people. Having never experienced a Turner & Baty holiday (tendency to go over the top) we of course overwhelmed them. They did stop opening presents to go off and play!?! Add to everything a sudden bout of flu the adults experienced on that morning and the photos will never make it into the hallowed walls of Olan Mills.
