Pages from Christmas Past, Part 1

This week I'm posting a 3-part series of Christmas layouts from past years. Today, my pages focus on Christmas around our home.


The Tree. Last year Phil set up his tripod to capture this sequence. I love having a husband who loves photography!


The Music. A few years ago, I created this page about my favorite Christmas music. While I still pop in the occasional CD, this music is now downloaded on my computer and iPod for my listening pleasure. A big change in a short time.


The Family. Gatherings on the weekend before Christmas - our parents, son and daughter in-law. Always a fun and special time.


Christmas comes every year, yet each year is unique. I love going back over my layouts and remembering - "Oh yes! that was the year when......."

  4. What a great idea to look at Christmas past layouts. Love the progression of the tree and a layout devoted to Christmas music is inspired. It is something we often take for granted.
