MERRY Toe Sock Tradition Layout

I created this layout to commemorate my first Christmas EVER without seeing my parents. Maybe commemorate isn't quite the right word, but it marks a moment I shared with Aly as the only immediate family I had left in NY for the holidays now that Elise and my parents have moved south. Our grandma from VA sent us a small package to open, and as usual it included a pair of holiday toe socks. For some reason these goofy pair of socks that you have to squish your toes into individually always brings a smile to our faces and I thought this year would be the perfect time to photograph and scrapbook the unspoken tradition. I traced my giant foot on the left side of the layout as a journaling spot. I stamped the red snowflakes, matted the photos, and added the word fetti stickers and gems.

  1. Happy New Year Tabitha! Great post and wonderful art! Love your holiday layout, your Valentine inchies are soooooooooo charming and love your altered mitten.

    Guess what? I found the original mitten I got at the beeswax workshop - HA! I will get it to you at the Jan. gathering :)

    Glad I stopped by, here, this morning. xxoo Marilyn
