I found this picture by chance this morning while I was looking for some embellishments for another Christmas layout. I have no idea how it got in there but glad I found it as I'm trying to fill in as many years in my Christmas albums that I can, going back to 1951 the year I was born.
For this layout I used the Week 1 sketch at "Let's Get Sketchy" I was looking for a sketch for just one photo and this one was perfect. I added the Santa face as an embellishment because that is what my picture is about. I write it about in my journal box. My Mom had made this felt Santa card holder years before this picture of Christmas 1962. I can remember it being hung on the inside of the front door for all my childhood and into adulthood. All I can think is that it was done on the couch in this picture because we had been looking at the cards that we added to it each day after the mail came. Plus I have the bonus of a picture of our cat Snooper in the picture too.
Here is the sketch below and you can check out all the details HERE.
