Journal Your Christmas 2011 - Day Nineteen

Today's the nineteenth prompt of Shimelle's Journal Your Christmas course. Time has flown by, but anyway today's prompt is about 'Writing to Santa'.

I always love writing to 'Santa' about what I'd love to have for Christmas. I just love it when Santa leaves his presents underneath the Christmas Tree and you open up the next morning! But I used one of my Christmas Cards from Marks and Spencer and folded up and stuck it to the card.

Journal Your Christmas 2011 - Day Five

This is the fifth prompt of Shimelle's Journal Your Christmas course. This prompt was about 'Counting Down'.

For this prompt I decided make six windows, and put the number of days until something scheduled happens and what happens. There is red card behind the windows and in white pen I've written what happens after so many days...

Journal Your Christmas 2011 - Day Two

This is my second page of Shimelle's Journal Your Christmas class; today's prompt was about the weather.

Being ill today, I had a day off school and I went to get some fresh air with Mum and when we did I took these photos (attached to my page). It's quite interesting actually, this time last year the whole of the United Kingdom had heavy snow fall, but this year we had coldness and sunshine.

Journal Your Christmas 2011 - Day One

This is my first page of Shimelle's Journal Your Christmas class. This is my first 'proper' year of doing J.Y.C. I did start an album last year but learnt that 12x12 is way too big to keep up with, so I've gone a lot smaller this year -- A5. But I hope this year I can keep up with it this year and actually finish the album.

**CHANGED** Journal Your Christmas 2011 Album

Here are my changed Journal Your Christmas album. I re-covered the album, used the wrapping paper behind the letters to make them stand out!

The album is from Paperchase and is in their Kraft range. The gold letters are from Hobbycraft, and the wrapping paper was actually from a present I got last year.

The colours that I'm going for this year are the tradition Christmas colours -- Red, Green and Gold.

Journal Your Christmas 2011 Album Cover & Title Cover

I know what your thinking its to early to be thinking about Christmas Album but I actually made the album and title page in January! But I have just now remembered that I haven't uploaded to mu blog yet!! But anyway - This year I'm going for traditional Christmas colours (Gold, Green and Red).

The album and the pages are the Kraft range at Paperchase. I also got the gold letter stickers from Hobby Craft. But the actual gift paper I used as a backround was a piece of gift wrap I received a present.

Anyway that's enough of Christmas talk - I'm now focusing on Learn Something New and I'm just deciding which album to use and I'm about to start making it, so expect another post soon!

Shimelle's Sketch of the Week - 16th February 2011

I have been scrapbooking again with my mum, as it is now half term holidays. I made a layout using Shimelle's sketch with a photo taken last April when we were in Majorca for nearly three weeks. We should have only been there a week, but we got caught up in the Volcano no-fly zone. Whilst we were there we found this lovely restaurant and as we were there so long, we went four times! And during this time, we made friends with the lovely people who owned and worked in the restaurant. Leo and Maria were the waiters. Concepcion owned the restaurant, but spoke no English, but was so lovely! I hope you like my layout!
