The Story: Showing the new ornaments we got for our Christmas tree in 2006. This was the year we got married, so we had some special ones. The Sleeping Beauty ornament came out that year — it was totally meant to be. He proposed to me at Sleeping Beauty’s castle in Disneyland and we had Tchaikovsky’s Sleeping Beauty Waltz played during our wedding ceremony. Did I mention that her dress changes color and the ornament plays the song? It’s pretty epic.
Just tree pictures? Yep. I didn’t grow up in a family of holiday picture-takers so it’s only been recently (especially now that I have an adorable niece and nephew) that I’ve been documenting holidays. It doesn’t bother me too much. Some years I’ll just show ornaments, other years will be more detailed.
Cataloging Ornaments: I didn’t take these pictures in 2006 but am using this process to slowly photograph our ornament collection for my scrapbook.
Careful when using translucent paper: The gold paper with the Christmas headline is translucent. It’s really hard to glue it down and not show the glue (or tape). Duh. *smacks head*
