Christmas 1964



I have had these pictures sitting on my desk for over a month now just waiting for the perfect sketch.

I found it !!!   sketchnscrap blogspot  Sketch #39 for August 15th was it.

I used Echo Park Happy Holidays collection.   Not the usual colors I go to in a Christmas layout, I'm more the pure reds and green person.   But since I was using black and white photos decided to change it up a bit.   But what I'm really happy about is finally getting these pictures scrapped.   I have 3 more from 1964 to work with so can't wait to get those done too.



Here is the link to where the challenge is         http://sketchnscrap.blogspot.co.nz

to Lisa in Texas. I think I did link already to SNS, am I missing something or doing something wrong?

Hi Barbara, you have done a gorgeous job on your Christmas page.
What Lisa means about the linking back to SNS blog is that participants in our (and most others) challenge must have a link that takes YOUR visitors from your blog to the SNS blog to help them find us. Hope that explains it ok. (when you are writing your blog there is a button for linking, you just add a web address i.e. http://sketchnscrap.blogspot.co.nz) Thanks for playing along with us and any problems let me know. xx
