Well I did say I wouldn't do any more Christmas posts, but just to finish off the holiday season, I thought I would squeeze one more in. So what have I been up to over the xmas period? It's been hard to find any time, but Craig went into work on Friday so I tried to get some of my Journal Your Christmas project done. It's quite funny because I thought I would be the last person to do this project, my crafty friends kathy and lesley were really up for it, and I thought, it was nice to be included, but I just don't have the time. Now it appears that I am the only one who has gotten stuck into it! So here is my front cover and I have done about 6 pages so far.

Well I apologise for not blogging last week, what can I say, we all have one of those weeks now and again. I have had a few trips to the hospital with dad, and extra work and retreat stuff going on, and Oh it's nearly Christmas isn't it !!! Then on Monday Robyn asks, can Kezia and I come and do our books? What she meant by that was, that while we were in Florida, I bought them everything they would need to create a Smash book. It's a new concept to me too, but as they are young, i thought it would really appeal to them, and would be something they could complete quite quickly. So I was at the hospital in the morning and then in the afternoon crafted with the girls only Robyn didn't want to do her book, and carried on making handmade gift boxes as she is making her Christmas presents this year, and i did my very first Smash book (on behalf of Robyn)!
I always keep tickets, receipt, leaflets and maps ....
So here are a few photo's

Well if you read my blog regularly you will have seen some previous Halloween posts, but on Friday i spent a few hours halloween scrapbooking. I managed to do 5 layouts fairly quickly and that's because i combined 2 collections, a whole stack of halloween photo's and made pages for a few different children's scrapbooks so it didn't matter if there were some similarities on the pages, I copied a few of the elements i was pleased with, and added them to more than one page, take a look ......
