ho ho ho 1994

I've decided to go back through some old pictures and catch up making some layouts from Christmas during the 90's.    I have all my Christmas layouts in chronological albums starting back in 1951, the year I was born.   So this is always fun for me when I find pictures I haven't scrapped yet.

My journaling tells the story behind this picture of my husband dressed up as Santa.   We planned it all out to try and surprise my niece and nephew who were  6 and 4 at the time.   It worked out great and I'm so glad I found this picture.   It's a fun memory.

I put this layout together with the  "USE YOUR STUFF"  challenge in mind.     Challenge #247 is
to use at least 3 6x6 papers.   I made my own background paper using 4 6x6 papers from the
Love Nicole - Seasons Greetings pad.   It has so many great papers.  Now that I pulled it out I need to use more of it.     I also used more of my "stuff"  the 3D Santa I've had a few years now, the journal box and the title are both from a swaps many years ago and the  two present buttons are at least 7 years old.     I love using up things I've saved.

Here is the link to the challenge.     Have fun with it, I know i did and the DT gives you lots of inspiration.    I'll be doing more challenges with this prompt in the future, its a great one.
