Deck the Halls & Stick It Down!

I love using sketches as a starting point for my layouts.  I saw this sketch on Stick It Down sketch challenge site and thought I have some photos for that!
This month's single page sketch:

And here's my layout.  I know these photos are horrible and one day I'll be able to take a good inside photo, but for now, the memory is more important than the quality of the photos.

Although we use this small 3' tree for Christmas now, it was still too high for LeAnna to decorate so we took it down off the table & it was just her size.  I love picking out the ornaments since many are either handmade or purchased for a particular memory.  I'm sad to say I broke our vintage Golden State Warriors ornament.  BOO!

I stumbled upon this site and I'm glad I did.  They have a double layout sketch, single page and card sketch each month.  Click HERE to get to the challenge site and join the fun!

  7. I agree, the memory is more important than the quality of the photo- its the way you put it on the page and dress it up too, scrapbooking brings out the best in a photo. Thanks for creating with us at SID!
