One of my favorite shots that gives you the Christmas holiday feels was the glowing flame of a candle. When the wax was just beginning to melt down the sides of the candle and the flame contained blue, green, yellow, and almost a red shade. I decided on crafting fun Christmas layouts centralizing on the candle.
For the background, I adhered a sheet of red paper to the album page and used a 5×7 copy of the candle photo, and placed it in the lower left-hand corner. Using my laptop and transparent sticky paper, I printed a pretty font and typed "Love reflects the heart" which I adhered to the right of the photo.
I cropped one photo of my friend's daughter checking herself out in a mirror where she was wearing a red dress with red ribbons on her hair. I also ended up scrapping a photo of my son's surprised look when he removed the cover to a wrapped box and discovered a puppy! The expression on his face was priceless. I framed each cropped photo with a mat made out of aluminum foil.
When I was lucky to find scrapbook paper that had a fireplace mantle, I decided to cut out the mantle which was the width of the page, and glued it above the 5×7 photo. The page turned out beautiful! I placed the two framed photos onto the mantle; it encapsulated the beautiful memories we made that holiday season.
