Journal your Christmas 6-10

Im not too sure how long
I will keep the journal going as things here get busier & busier
but here a few more pages in the album :)

The pages are 6x 8.5 inches.
Still very quick but will be great to look back on.
thanks for looking x

Getting in the mood...

Now that our house move has been postponed till mid January, we are trying to feel properly Christmassy . Our tree is now up & twinkling beautifully :)
I also went to Carols by Candlelight with my Mum & had a good old sing song. Saint Christophers Curch looked beautiful as we arrived.

It's certainly getting us all in the mood.

Time for a quick sketch :)

it's my team's turn to create with sketch 132
with the twist - Glitter.

At the castle with my Prince.

I know a bit of a soppy title!
but recently we've barely get to spend any time together
& these photos capture us
being close
albiet only for a weekend!

The brick effect was inked through a mask.
The rest was leftovers & off cuts
plus some glitter brads.
I love the feeling of using up some stash :)

many thanks for looking x

A Real Change

Here is a Lo
I made recently whilst away with friends.
It features Me !!
in a lovely photo taken by Anna Bowkis.

A real change ??
Firstly many thanks Jackie for the title
& oh yes it is a big change,
I'm talking about the colour
I'm wearing!!
As a "strawberry blonde"
I've always avoided this sort of colour
but this blouse was an impulse buy
& everybody loves it,
so I certainly will wear it again.

I am so going to miss Sassafrass papers,
the colours were perfect here.
The brick pattern was inked through a mask.

Hope you like it.
Thanks for looking x

Journal Your Chistmas 1-5

I've taken part in this project over at least the last 4 Christmas's. I love the idea of recording the big & the small things that make Christmas so very special plus all the family activities & birthdays that fall in this month too.
The only down side for me is I never finish my journal on time & end up playing catch up over a few months.
So this year I thought long & hard about whether I should start a journal whilst packing up a house to move but the family consensus was YES.
I've gone for a different size & I'm limiting both the time I spend on the pages & the amount of embellishment too to try to help me stay on track... so here are 1-5.

Thanks for looking x

On this day...

On this day in 1994
I became a Mum
for the very first time
when Daniel James
arrived in this world.

Today he is 17.
We have watched him grow
into a wonderful, hard working
fun loving man
affectionately known
as Smiley to all.
Happy Birthday Son xxx

In a blink of an eye
we've gone from me holding him
to him holding me!!

Coke in Coventry

I have a real "thing" for Diet Coke!!
So when I heard that
the Coca-Cola truck
was coming to Coventry,
I just had to go & see it.

Watching the Coke Ad on the TV
is a sure sign for me that
Christmas is on it's way.

I would have loved to have seen it
in the dark
looking lit up & festive
but unfortunately
it was only with us 9 - 1
You can track it's next stops here .

Advent style

Here is the last Lo
I've made using ScrapaGoGo's
December kit
Fauna & Flora.

Our Traditions each Christmas.

I've used some of the doors from the
Websters Botanical Christmas paper
to create a mini advent style Lo.
Behind each door is a photo
& journalling about 5 traditions we
perform in this family
each Christmas.

The alpha & embellishments are all cut
from the exclusive Hybrid sheets
ScrapaGoGo provide FREE
each month to co ordinate with their kits.

Holiday postcards

I've been creating this week
with ScrapaGoGo's December Kit
Fauna & Flora.

The add on stamp
has the most awesome postcard design
which I think will be a really useful
addition to my stamp collection.


I've used the stamp on this page
to create a mini album
to hold more photos & journalling
from a recent weekend away.

Using both sides.

The design was completed with the hybrids
& elements cut from the Websters Botanical Christmas paper
& the Pink Paislee wooden alpha.

Poorly Girl

Well it might be cold outside but here we are housebound, not by the weather but by chicken pox!!
I could have sworn she had it when she was at nursery but regardless she has it now!

Luckily Shes not covered in them but it's certainly making her feel poorly :(
The only good thing is she is able to read more of the Twilight books which she loves!
