Journal Your Christmas 2013

There are so many different things going on during the month of December because there are so many many ways to celebrate the Christ Child's birth.  I want to capture the month of celebrating the fulfillment of God's promise. Yes, it's a month full of activities and love and the stress of trying to juggle it all.  I've decided to throw the balls in the air and enjoy seeing them spin.  There are many things on my calendar, and many things I want to make and bake.This year I will make no-bake Christmas cake, fruit balls, and divinity.  I will go to Dollywood and see all the Christmas shows and lights.  I will go to movies and concerts, I will watch the endless parade of movies on the Hallmark channel, and I will enjoy it all!    But for just 15 minutes every day I want to be sure to stop and document the season. It's only a month, and I can do it all for one month.  But I have prepared.  I signed up for Shimelle Lane's Journal Your Christmas, and I also signed up for Simple Scrapper's Holiday Storyteller. Each day I'll just pick whichever prompt I want to add.  I made a mini album so I only have to spend 15 min a day on this project. 
It's a simple album using 8 1/2 x 11 card stock cut in half, a piece of chipboard, Bo Bunny's new Siver and Gold collection, my Bind-it all, and various ribbons and fibers in my stash.

The phrase is from the Silhouette store, and I love how easy it is to create a mat for anything I cut out on the Silhouette!

I think 15 minutes a day is a great aim....it's 'doable'.....I try for this amount of time as well.
