Christmas is complete!!

Ok I know Christmas was really over in December but I needed to finish my Christmas Journal.

I actually started in 2010 the year I joined Journal Your Christmas run by Shimelle, all I managed that year was the 1st page!  In 2011 I tried again, I updated the first page and actually made several others, but got behind, Dad got admitted to hospital and I really lost the Christmas spirit.

So we come to Christmas 2012 and  I have kept all the original pages made in the previous years but I made all the others and finished on December 27th.  Here is a quick look..........







.
What I have learned........I have really enjoyed making these pages and preserving some of my memories from Christmas.  I will definitely do this again and won't worry about completing it after Christmas. I managed to make the LO's without needing a sketch I just made them as I went and used the materials I had to hand so keeping it simple, this can be adapted for 12x12 pages that I usually make.  So overall a really worthwhile project and so glad I persevered.
