OK, so it might be over a month late... but I have finally finished my Christmas journal!
And it has meant that I have at long last been able to put my Christmas stash away. :o)
So, it was just the January entries left to go - obviously my resolution #2 to stop procrastinating requires some work...
And resolution #1 isn't doing so well either... but hey.
Some nice fluffy Thickers to start the month, and since it's a tradition to watch the NY's Day concert from Vienna this had to be a wintry/snowy inspired page.
The prompt for the second was all about childhood and innocence... well, I cracked open my white chocolate orange... and it made me realise that when we were little, our chocolate selection boxes never lasted into January!
Lots of vintage KI on this one...
The 3rd was about looking back at Christmas and favourite memories from the season... well I had to get in one of the only family pics to come out ok (oh and a bit of that lovely real tree!).
Got to love a bit of Love Elsie "Noel".
The 4th was about reminders for next year. Well, I never got a chance to try the Baked Alaska recipe from Sainsbury's this year. I really wanted to try it as I have never ever had Baked Alaska, and well... it sounds very delish!
KI Festive and a cute little snow person from MME. :o)
The 5th was about packing up and putting things away... All my decorations went back in their boxes, plus a gorgeous Christmas card that arrived in Jan will be coming out next year for maximum festive enjoyment. :o)
Crate galore here, and my favourite set of foam Thickers - only have a few numbers left from that set. But I love the font!
And the last day of Christmas... well, my Christmas journal is finished for this year, but the stash is ready to come out for Christmas 2011!
I went to town a bit with Basic Grey's Eskimo Kisses stash! But what better reason to use it?
I had one page left to round off the journal... and used my yummy AC Moxie stickers and glitter MM stickers.
So there it is, the whole journal finished. It has had to move out of the 2 Paperchase binders it was living in and is now held together with book rings and I made some acrylic covers... but I just wish my Paperchase binder could hold it all!
