I like to use 4x6 photos as much as possible. These were cut down a bit but not much. I know they say to crop in close to your subject. But how many of us look back at old photo's at Great Grandmas and remember laying on the kitchen linoleum floor and coloring in the summer time? Seeing the design in the linoleum brings back old memories. I love seeing all the background things in old pictures. If we always crop our photos my kids may not remember that Mom always had 2 Nativities in the family room. Or in the 2nd layout, that we had Taft Christmas in Uncle Tom's heated garage. Yes, I think that might make us Red Necks but it's a very nice garage. LOL And with the whole Taft clan it's the best space for all of us to be in one room.
I'll have more Christmas layouts this week.
