Lasting Memories Challenge #49--Christmas in July

Merry Christmas in July!!!!  I LOOOOOVE Christmas!!!!  I think it's probably my favorite holiday of the entire year!  I love the sounds and smells, the decorations, the Christmas trees, the songs, the food . . . I could go on and on!  This week at Lasting Memories, we want to see your Christmas layouts.  Here's my layout for this week:
I wanted to capture my youngest son, Joseph's, complete emotion at seeing Santa for the first time.  He was eleven months old at this visit to Santa, but we couldn't get him to look at the camera!  Wait--let me rephrase that--he would look at the camera until the picture was ready to be taken, and then he'd turn and look at Santa.  It was so cute, that we decided to go ahead and take the picture anyway!

I believe the patterned papers came from my DCWV Christmas stack, and all of the embellishments and stickers were ones I found in my stash.  What puts YOU in the mood for Christmas, or what do you love about Christmas?  WE WANT TO SEE THOSE CHRISTMAS LAYOUTS!!!

Your challenge at Lasting Memories this week is Christmas in July--create a Christmas layout.  You've got until next Saturday, August 6, to get your layout linked up.  It's almost time for a new Design Team Call at Lasting Memories, too, so be sure to check back here next week for more information!  Good luck, and happy scrapping!
