Still on Christmas

So as a scrapbooker once the decorations are down and away, the house has been cleaned from top to bottom, there's only one thing left. That is to scrapbook the photos!
I signed up last year for Shimelle Laine's Journal Your Christmas prompts and am sad to say I didn't do it. Same story this year but my friend Caroline last year had the idea of getting all her Christmas memories into one album rather than recording just one year, or doing it every year. Then this year another friend Lesley decided she wanted to record a memory from every day through out December. Along with this the fabulous inspiration that you can find on Pinterest made me get some photos printed off and look at some of the prompts. I like Caroline's idea of gathering all my memories and it has finally got me started.
I was invited to Lesley's for a crafting day so we sat and chatted, ate and made some pages for our albums. Crafting with a friend always inspires you to pick up the paper and glue again.
This page was inspired by this fabulous layout, my book is an 8x8 album so that it wont take much filling. Here I recorded all the baking I do at Christmas
 this page was inspired by the first layout on this post.
