Christmas 1956


This was the Christmas card my parents sent out in 1957 with my brother and me sitting in front of our fireplace in our home.   I have to laugh looking at this as my brother was about 6 weeks shy of being 2 years old and I wonder how many pictures they had to take to try and get him sitting calmly there.    Obviously this must have been the closest he got to it.

I'm entering this in the challenge at  "SCRAP CHALLENGE YOURSELF"   the challenge was to use a Black and White photo and of course to include a picture of  yourself.

I am also entering this at "COLOR STORIES INSPIRATIONS"   CSI Case File #400.

I was inspired by the circle of Christmas embellishments around the clock, my patterned paper is in a circle of embellishments around my center picture.
