Good Morning and happy hump day!  Today is December 2nd already.  It will be Christmas before we know it.  Here at our house we are very excited about it.  But still remembering the loss of our loved ones, especially recent losses, like John's dear mom, Regina.

I wanted to make a scrapbook page in memory of her and her wonderful husband, Allen.  Scrap our Stash's Stash Challenge #33 was my inspiration  today:

I used the following items from my stash to make my layout:
D~Doily (heart shaped)
I~Index card
E~Enamel frame (pink)
C~Chipboard hearts
U~Ultramarine Blue color burst (Ken Oliver)
T~Tim Holtz die cut (scallop), transparency
S~stitching, staples

Welcome to my take on Scrap our Stash's Challenge #33:

With some different views and closeups:

And in conclusion, I would like to share some photos to get you into the Christmas spirit!  These three pictures are very precious to me!

My dad, who passed away many years ago at age 70, always changed our "NOEL" angels like this when we were growing up:

My sister, Cathy,who also passed away years ago from ovarian cancer,  loved snowmen and this was one of her favorite ornaments:

And here is my reflection in one our our vintage ornaments that brings back fond memories from my childhood:

This week's Our Beautiful World prompt is "White."  I would like to submit my "LEON angels and snowman ornament photos!  Check it out here:
