Be Merry!

I decided not to do a Journal Your Christmas album this year as working full-time meant it was too big a commitment.  Instead I documented my December in pocketed pages.  Some weeks I had a lot to say whereas others were quite quiet.  In fact it actually started on 30th November for our couples Christmas Do...


Then the kids December production of Wicked at school and a special awards night for me...


Christmas tree selection, new ornaments for the tree and my kittens joined my in the craft room/study and made themselves at home!..


Girls night out in Manchester, new school photos ready for the Christmas cards and Christmas Jumper Day...


Open air Ice Skating at Spinningfields, Manchester followed by Alex demolishing a full rack of ribs (again!)...


Chrstmas Eve, a friend's card and the kid's lists...


Christmas morning; stockings, a new straw for Alex and annual reading in bed...


I finished it with a double page of Christmas day photos very simply embellished (not shown) and then this 12x12 of Alex and Josh after Christmas Dinner all using the same December Documented collection from Simple Stories...


I'm not sure I'd do this every month but I think I will definitely do it again if there is something special happening :)

Making it manageable, and still getting the memories down - must feel good to get it done!

Fab way of recording a busy month - I did my JYC 2011 like this and it certainly made it much quicker x
