"Our Folk Art Christmas" layout Day 5 of 12 days of Holiday Inspiration

 I'm one of those over the top "got to deck my house for the holidays" kind of people.  Every year we have different colors for our Christmas tree and then go crazy with all the other little things to put up and put out.  But with all the changes one thing remains the same.  Our home always has a touch of "folk art" for the holidays.
Today I'm sharing a layout of some of the folk art knickknacks we put up at Christmas time.
I tried to make the page resemble that same feeling with all the textures and details.
 It's a two pager so feel free to click on the picture to get a better look.  Or just check out all the detail shot below.

Awesome post Lalo! It is so heart warming to see that there are several of us who hold family and family traditions dear to our heart during the Christmas season. You have captured these memories beautifully in your layout. Your family is going to admire and enjoy your amazing attention to detail and keen, keen eye for design for many years. Beautiful work Lalo!
