Christmas in June

I'm finishing up this weekend's Smash*Holics Challenges today.  The last challenge for the weekend was "Christmas".  I'd recently found some old pictures of myself as a toddler and one just happened to have a Christmas tree in the photo.  I look to be around 18 months old or so.  I had pictures of my grandson, Sy, and my daughter, Caitlin, at the holidays, so I gathered them all up and smashed them in my book.  Tom put in a call to his folks and asked for a holiday picture for me to use in the book.  And, when Christmas 2012 rolls around, I'll snag a picture of my granddaughter, Charleen and put her sweet little picture on this page.

It was a pretty simple page to do....  everything was made on my Cricut machine.  (Yes, I'm pro-Cricut because it's what I happily have to work with at the moment.)   I love how the Santa face came out as paper piecing.  The ornaments were from a holiday cartridge.    The photos are inside the ornaments which open up.

Merry Christmas in June....
