Sleigh Ride! Cooking with Cricut Challenge

"Just hear those sleigh bells jingling,Ring-ting-tingling too,Come on, it's lovely weatherFor a sleigh ride together with you."
This weeks challenge at Cooking with Cricut is all about "Sounds of the Season"  I have always wanted to use the sleigh from Winter Woodland and so my layout was born. After cutting the sleigh I called my sister and asked if she had any family pictures that would go with this theme, and low and behold she came across these wonderful gems of my grandmother and her brothers and sisters bringing home their Christmas tree in about 1916. She also sent a picture of the camera that took the picture and a little write up about the photo including the ox and dogs name. After receiving these fantastic photos I had no problem with creating my layout.
