Christmas Morning


I rarely make scrapbook pages. I rarely use navy blue. So I make two pages within two weeks of each other and they are both navy! I just  had a navy kind of feeling from both of the pictures. I was happily using my Doodlebug metallic paper and my Joanne's snowflake brads when it occurred to me that it didn't really snow in Houston. Oh well. I don't think the scrapbook police will come all the way to the Oklahoma Panhandle to cite me for "nonsensical layouts!"

Many of these old photos from my childhood say Polaroid on the back, but they don't look like the kind that comes from inside those old Polaroid cameras. They have a very stiff cardboard back, with a regular photo on the front. I had to stack a book and several boxes on this LO to get the pic to stay on the page. It wanted to curl off, plus it's hard to stick things to Magic Mesh. Isn't this MM pretty? It comes in 7x7 squares. I used the whole package on this LO.

Oh I love navy and white. It is such a perfect combo and allows you to add just about any color. Love that you made a page of yourself as a child to be cherished for generations to come! Super design and sweet, sweet photo!

Love the monochrome! I never use navy, it's striking though!
