Journal Your Christmas 1

 
You can tell we're snowed in.......2 posts in one day......I never manage that.
The first prompt in 'Journal Your Christmas' is always the weather.........considering I'm surrounded by the white stuff.......I can finally use a snowy photo taken on the actual day on my page.......and with schools closed.......had time to get the page done as well.......maybe there is something to be said for the snow after all!!!!!!
Though the things I was saying about it weren't so polite when I had to trudge down the garden to get logs from the shed......and the snow was higher than my boots.......so much for global warming!!!
And the very first page of the album is a mini 'manifesto'.........hmmm.....so perhaps I shouldn't complain about the snow.......but join Chester playing in it
The pages are 8 x 5ish........and I decided not to make a set of 'date ' cards.....but to vary them each day......and maybe get some of my number stickers used up.

Love the tabbed style page & your changing things up! I'm using up random stuff this year, which is dictating the size of my pages & they way they look. We'll see if that gamble pays off!

I love the size of your photo. And global warming is really a misnomer - its really global climate change. Unusual and extreme weather in any direction really fits the pattern.
