Cousins at Christmas (Layout #52)

Are you getting ready for Christmas? My husband's family's tradition was to put up their tree Thanksgiving day, after the turkey was eaten and everyone was stuffed. We have modified his tradition to fit our family, so today we bought our tree. It looked beautiful on the lot, and I can't wait to get it inside and decorated. (Yesterday before our turkey dinner at my parents' house, I cleaned and rearranged our living room to accommodate the tree.)

These particular photos are from Christmas 2006, my nephew's very first one! My sister and I got my girls and her son matching outfits, and we couldn't resist a photo shoot.

I love the timelessness of the Silhouette papers with these photos! The pop of Cranberry was just what we needed for these pictures. I didn't want to focus so much on Christmas as on the sweetness of the cousins together.
This layout was part of a swap, and I wish I could give credit to the person who made it. All I had to do was add my photos, my journaling, and some Cranberry ribbon to finish it off. Children at Christmas are definitely magic moments!


  1. Of course I think the kids are cute, and the l/o is puuurfect! I have all my fall stuff stored and a red bow on the door. Decorating DONE:-(...since we'll be gone cruising. No, I am not whining!

  2. What a beautiful layout. Have fun decorating the tree.

  3. Beautiful LO! The photos are darling. Our tradition is to put the tree up Thanksgiving day...we don;t have family to visit so UP goes the tree :0)....Can't wait to see your tree.


Thanks for taking the time to visit and leaving me a comment!
