Another batch of Christmas layouts

These are the remaining layouts created from the month kit from Treasured Memories. You can see the first three on my last post. Again, I just love creating with these kits. The ease, the lack of overthinking- it’s great.

I love how this layout turned out. The papers from Bella Blvd are so bright and colorful and I love that, they were perfect for punching into these circles.

I wanted to hand stitch a title for this one, I’m on the fence about it though. I wrote the word Merry, poked the holes, erased the lines and then added in the stitching. I thought it looked funny until I added the machine stitched circles. My favourite part is the hanging ornaments… and the cutie in the photo. 😉

Scrapbooking photos of my Dad is both hard and healing. I miss him so much, the holidays are hard and knowing that he will never be at our gatherings again, that Anna will not grow up with him makes me ache. This photo was taken at our last Christmas together, I’m so grateful for this day and these photos. I remember it well, we had so much fun. Sometimes life just doesn’t make sense.

I hate to leave this post with a sad tone so I will just emphasize how grateful I am for memory keeping. Grateful for photos & stories. They allow me touch the past and heal my heart. ♥
