so.... I kinda didn't wait for Shimelles first prompt, and as Carole and I were talking via Facebook this morning she spurred me on to get some stuff done , take some pics and scrap away.

We decided that advent would be a good place to start as it kinda kicks off christmas, day one, you open door 1... I usually get myself and Paul a calendar too, but thought  buying 6 would look a bit odd so 4 was enough.

Anyways, I did use a little bit of shimelle for the first page, I added that card that I filled out this morning to my page, it doesn't have anything at all to do with the content but I ilk it on there, and as my album will be purely xmas themed and for this project I didn't think it would matter.

enough chat, heres my page...

As a base for the page I used Shimelles sketch of the week, which I try to do as often as possible, it used 2 pics which was handy as that was what I had printed off and it just all seemed to fall together really well...
I am actually gonna do another page for today, using the real prompt for shimelle, its a little different to what I might normally do but I'm gonna give it a go

  1. Love it! Love that you journalled about your family's advent calendars, makes perfect sense to me, day one opening the calendars ... day one of your journal!

    Looking forward to seeing what else you do!
