This layout is a tribute to Christmas 2009 when I was blessed with so much love. What the heck am I doing Christmas LO in July?! I don't know, but I was inspired to do this layout. This was when Charles still lived in Dallas and I lived in North Dakota. The top photo is Charles and I at his families house in east TX. The bottom photo is one I took with my phone while Charles and I were on a horse carriage ride in Downtown Dallas taking a tour of the Christmas lights. It was absolutely gorgeous. He surprised me with the carriage ride. So romantic! During Christmas 2009, so much happened that shaped our future. We finally made the decision that we wanted to be together forever and he would move to Fargo. Then, not even a month later, we found out we were expecting a baby. It was most certainly the most beautiful Christmas and the best gifts I could have ever received. The horse and carriage, angel, light post, and the word Christmas was all cut with my cricut and gypsy. The PP is Creative Imaginations, Making Memories letter stickers, prima vine and bo bunny flower border and gold trim. I inked and glimmer misted the gold sheet music paper-that used to be white, and then hand stitched to add dimension. Thanks for taking a peek!
