In the great debate over real or artificial Christmas trees, my family leans toward real. I have fond memories as a child going to a local Tree Farm, picking out our tree, chopping it down, and hauling it home. We are continuing that tradition with Cory and, in fact, have returned to the same tree farm we went to when I was his age.
I took this photo of Cory with my folks at the tree farm last year. I layered the picture on top of a variety of patterned paper from My Creative Scrapbook's December kit. The kit features the holiday line from Photo Play.
To the right of the photo, I added a tree, embellishing it with stickers and a flair, then stamped the year, 2014.
I wish I had added some journaling to this layout and will go back to add a couple of short journaling trips to the upper right.
I have scrapbooked this tradition in previous layouts and in my December Daily. You can see the layout from our 2012 trip here and my 2014 December Daily entry here.
Here's a photo of the kit I used this year:
I appreciate your stopping by. I'll be back with additional layouts from this kit on Friday and next Monday.
