First Christmas ABC

This was for a little boy's first Christmas. The pages included visiting Santa, Christmas with various relatives, etc. The photos were silhouetted or cropped in various shapes and put tilted here and there on the pages. The same stickers were on all the pages to tie them together (holly, Christmas toys, Christmas bows and teddy bears). There were one to four letters on each page and the journaling (done a red pen) curved here and there around and among the photos. The ABC's were done with a wide tip pen to make them standout on the page.

"Merry Christmas to All, and to All a Good Night!"
