A bit more JYC....at Christmas

Due to a very unhealthy December I'm still catching up with my Christmas journal....the pre-christmas pages are here.....and now I've got to the actual holiday pages.
A different Christmas Day for us this year as usually we have a full house.......but as both our girls were working we spent the morning with DS and family.....and the afternoon with my SIL's family.
 opening presents [great excitement]....singing and dancing and watching Frozen

lunch [and more presents] at my SIL's with 3 very excited dogs who thought ripping up wrapping paper was a great game!

family and friends at our house for a buffet and some 'photo booth' fun....and looking at the picture below I realise I've dated it wrongly....it wasn't the 26th....we had a very quiet Boxing Day....it was actually the 27th....so that will need changing!!
Sometimes I finish my journal at this point......but as it's a lot thinner than usual this year.....and we did have some 'happenings' over New Year.....I have got a final few pages left to add.

Your pages are great---you certainly accomplished a lot! I especially like your use of punches. I don't use mine often enough. Then I see pages like yours and it reminds me that I need to get them out. Thanks for that!

It's looking really good! I like the flexibility of a project like this - you can document different days, different years and still have a fab album at the end

That photobooth page really made me smile! Your pages all hang together really well - I like your little journalling cards.

I think I must be the only person left in the country who hasn't seen Frozen!
Love the photobooth idea.

It's lovely, Jacky. This journalling would be a great exercise to do with the WI craft group
