December 1?! Seriously? Ahhh! ;)
Today is the first day of the Citrus Twist Kits Christmas Daily Inspiration project on the Facebook Fanpage and I'm so excited to start the month off by sharing a few of my pages! If you've not been to the Facebook Fanpage, please go visit, there will be inspiration and challenges every day up until Christmas from a number of amazing contributors (not sure how I managed to get involved though lol) and I've set a fun little challenge for Day 1!
I actually started my album a little early this year and I'm not working on it in a daily or weekly schedule. This year it's about setting no rules, I'll get pages done as I feel like it and that is going to be enough. Any story recorded is better than none :)
Most of my pages feature goodies from the CTK Christmas kits but I'm also digging into my stash and using things from last year (and the year before) that have been sitting around for a whole year just waaiiiting to be used.
OK, enough babble - onto the first first few of my Christmas album!!
I know it's still early days but I'm really enjoying this album this year - it was fun to start things a bit early and I'm not feeling the stress that I usually do because it's OK if I miss the next X amount of days. I don't have to have a photo or story for everyday!
I have to confess that having this little guy peek out from the top of the album is my favourite thing so far though. I picked up the clips from Spotlight (there is also a Rudolf and Gingerbread Man one!) and they're super cute.
I'm also adding a few non-paper "pages" in my album this year. I love different textures in albums to I created this little pocket using a bit of material I had and I've put Zack's letter to Santa inside! Well it's a photocopy of the letter....the original was posted to the main man a few weeks back ;)
And that's it...for now! As for the rest of the album you can see underneath, it's just basic page prep, nothing special....yet! I'll be sharing a few more pages/challenges over the next 25 days on the CTK Facebook Fanpage so I hope you'll keep following along there!
Thanks so much for stopping by!! Take care, Em xo
