Journal Your Christmas Day 2

After recovering from the surprise Snow Day yesterday (Sam and I walked to Mums house along the old railway track. We were out enjoying the snow for 2 and a half hours before I gave up and got Dad to come and rescue us. Who knew walking in snow was so tiring?!) I sat down to do a bit more JYC-ing.

Here is my Christmas manifesto from Day 1. I finished mounting it and embellishing the page last night. I've basically promised to enjoy December and to record the fun of Christmas in my journal. After the somewhat challenging year my family has had I am looking forward to a festive month of photography and journalling.

 Yesterdays prompt was about the weather and how we feel about Christmas/December. I had these beautiful old snowflake papers I wanted to use for a double LO. They are so lovely and glittery that I again didnt want to cover the images with the photos and journalling. So I tucked my journalling away behind the photos on the 2nd page.
 Snow Day LO: Photo taken on the long walk to Sandown yesterday morning (so worthwhile for Mum's homemade soup and rolls).
 December 2nd with hidden journalling. Sam making a snow angel and our thermos in the snow.
Thanks for stopping by and happy festive crafting
