I have a pile of Christmas photos from years gone by, that I wanted to scrap in their own album. I thought I would probably use Shimelle’s Journal Your Christmas prompts, or maybe Ali Edwards December daily, but in the end, I have just done my own thing!
I have a few empty 8.5in x 11in American Craft albums, so I picked a red one for my Christmases past album. I also had some divided page protectors that I bought for Ali’s One Little Word class that I didn’t do.
So here’s a peek at what I have been doing:
This first one is from a JYC prompt, a title page. This is my ‘word’ for this season. I want to feel Peace this year. The photo is from 1982! I am always amazed at how good some of our older photos are. We had Pentax ME Super camera bodies and various lenses. Maurice thinks he used a filter on this photo, to get the ‘misty’ effect.
But we did take some really awful photos too! These taken at our first Christmas together, look how badly they’ve faded, and the shape of the Christmas tree, UGH!!!
More 1982, and there are lots of photos for 1984! It’s difficult to remember exactly what we did at these Christmases, so I am going to do a bit of research on the internet and see if I can find out what was on telly, what was the most coveted gadget etc! What fun! How we love reminiscing! Happy times
Here’s what the divided page protectors look like. I love this! Lots of work though to make each individual little page!!
