Journal Your Christmas Days 14 and 15

I've gone a bit off prompt today as I try and catch up on the last few days. I've been feeling a bit low and a bit hormonal so I wanted to focus on things that make me happy and so have just used lovely photos more than journalling. I've also left the 'Thankful' prompt until tomorrow hoping i might be able to do it a bit more justice then (I have plenty to be thankful for this year ;0).

So here goes....

Day 14: Prompt: Gifts.

I wrapped all my pressies and laid them all out beautifully under the tree for the photo. I also tucked the journalling behind the pic to make the photo the focal point.

 Day 15's prompt was 'Visitors'. Well I have visitors and do plenty of visiting too over Christmas. But I couldnt decide how to capture this. So I decided to focus todays page on one of my favourite visitors instead (honestly, no favouritism in this house really). This is our gorgeous family boxer dog Kala. She is such a joy in my life. Whenever i am having a bad day or in need of a little boost, she is always a tonic ;0) I love this photo as it captures her in the snow a couple of weeks ago. Usually her dark features get lost in photos, but the snow brought out her softie face. 
 The last project i completed tonight is completely un-JYC-related. Mum asked me to help put together this frame for my Nanny & Pops for Christmas. We went through a whole load of photos of the family and printed them all out then raided my stash cupboard to find stampsets and punches to use to accessorise. Mum and I's favourite Owl Punch even made an appearance (soon to be appearing in a Stampin' Up! mini catalogue near you! Stay tuned for more info....). We used: Vintage Vogue, For Everything, the Two Step Bird Punch & the Owl Punch. Sorry the photo isnt so clear. The lighting in here is terrible!!

Happy festive crafting....
