Day 25 - the big one!
Here's how the page began ....
and developed ....
and finished up. No room for journalling ....
so I made another.
And developed it like this.
But no time for journalling now, so it stayed like this:
I decided to let the photos tell their own story.
There is also a page protector in between with some extra pics - sharing some of them on my blog - here.
Lots of stamping on this page - a poinsettia from Uniko and trees and sentiments from Clearly Besotted plus the journal card made using Katie Pertiet Antibes digi elements.
I added some colour to the poinsettia and some vertical strips of washi to liven things up a bit.
A quick and simple digi photo page - maybe tomorrow things will calm down!
At last a quiet peaceful day without visitors and time to catch up a bit on my album. I coloured some wooden snowflakes and die cut a leafy strip.
I added my journalling, some ribbon strips and a tree from Simple Stories Mistletoe Kisses bits & pieces ephemera and thought I was done ...
.... but the pink dots on the tree were bothering me, so I covered them with brown pearls and green gems. And discovered I was no where near finished! Word stickers, picture stickers, red gems and a coating of Wink of Stella to the snowflakes seemed like essential additions.
As this was a nothing much happening sort of day I decided to use all my Advent photo challenge pics in a digi collage.
As I love it so much I used the reindeer die again - first appearance was on day 1.
I added some digi word strips, some ribbon and enamel dots.
Then came the journalling and word stickers - chosen because it was such a chillly frosty but bright and sparkly day. I noticed that the reindeer was disappearing into the background a bit so I outlined it with a brown promarker.
The photo is up on Lincoln castle wall with the Victorian prison, ancient keep and cathedral in the background just seconds before we began a perilously slippery descent. The boys thought this enormous fun, but it had me gripping the rail tightly with both hands!
