Decision made-my christmas journal

I am not decisive......I don't do decision making well........I constantly change my mind.......last year my album for Journal Your Christmas was 8 x 8..........it got fatter and fatter........I had to buy larger rings twice........so this year I'm going to make a small one...........except now I'm not.......the Holiday in Hand class had gorgeous page templates......then I saw other people's wonderful ideas on blogs........so I thought maybe I'd go a bit bigger.........then I changed my mind yet again..........so I'm going to make........an 8 x 8 journal!!!!!
What finally decided me was coming across a chipboard album I bought at Ally Pally.......perfect........has 8 thick chipboard pages.......so 16 sides......and can then add small sheets inbetween for the extra pages.

In fact..........I've even made it..........just in time for the class to start next week.........I've gone for red and green........played safe there I know.........wanted it more co-ordinated than last year's one...........have mainly used papers from 2 SU xmas packs.....looks a bit boring inside at the mo........so this is the cover......you'll have to wait til December to see any more.

The 2009 album you made looks nice; it will look even nicer once you get it filled. See you in class. DragonsLady

Love the snowy, traditional cover. Also love the dinky little Christmas Tree!
8x8 is the best size for stuff like this... not too big (filling a 12x12 page every day is a bit much!), but big enough to allow you to be adventurous.
Can't wait to see how you get on.

You are going to have so much fun filling this little beauty Jacky!

I had a chuckle at your mobile phone post below LOL

I really hope to see you tomorrow - can't wait!!

Love Steph xxx

Jacky, your album cover is gorgeous, I can't wait to see what's inside! I didn't know you were also in Holidays in Hand. I would have give you a shout out!

I have to laugh (mostly at myself) I'm just as indecisive. Dec is only days away, and yet...I still haven't decided. I think I'm going to split it up and go 10 X 10...how's that for a decision?! lol

(also, I *finally* found someone that uses as many...well actually...more...ellipses than I do. Yay!)
