P.S. I've worked out my "Word" for next year, which has partly to do with telling stories when they happen, not two years later! coming soon...

I'm adding a number to each photo that represents another day in December:

I journalled with my sister's old fountain pen - I finally tracked down some ink refill at Office Works. Each day is marked with a cut-down page about 5cm wide. All the pages are binded with my bind-it-all. At 36 pages it is so thick I had to use rings to hold it together.

I am suffering from scrappers block at the moment - I feel so overwhelmed with the number of projects on my list that weren't finished - or started in some cases - this year that I don't know how to go forward. So I think I'm going to do the massive cleanup of my desk that is required and go from there. Usually works for me!

I love using scraps on my layouts wherever poosible. The green grass is cut from Tassie's daycare newsletter.
I used my punch with orange tissue paper for the big flower, and finally got to use my little yo yo flowers made ages ago. I wonder if I can still remember how to make them? Note to self, do this in front of tellie watching Spooks tonight!

This is one of those layouts when my first attempt of the LO just wasn't working. The main photo mat was white, which looked awful. So I ended up inking it a bit and adding some embellishments, which isn't my usual style - I like to keep things simple - but I had fun on this one.

materials: Bazzill cardstock, Grace Taylor and Graphic 45 paper, Fancy Pants Designs stamp, Kaisercraft acrylic paint, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, Sharpie pen, date stamp, StazOn ink.
I loved it so much, that I decided to duplicate it and make another for myself, since the first leaves our house and goes into Delilah's scrap album that I am gradually building. Mine has more photos and journalling, but they are virtually identical. Nothing wrong with that! This is a very simple layout and you can tell I made it... that's what I like about it.
