25 Days of Christmas Journal

I finally finished gathering all my papers, cards, chipboard shapes, etc. for my 25 Days of Christmas journal. Last year was my first year doing it and I liked it so much I'm doing it again this year. You can see that I leave my pages relatively empty as far as embellishments go because I'd rather decorate it based on the happenings of the day...I don't even add my day numbers ahead of time because sometimes I have more than one picture and may use multiple pages for one day. So here it is...I'm ready for December 1st...
This cover is actually a vintage Christmas luncheon plate. I picked up a bunch at an estate sale a few months ago and I'm so glad I found a use for them (or at least one of them).

I usually punch holes in one of the greeting cards we send out to our friends and relatives and use that as a page. I also like to add the little photo postcard type cards my brother and sister send every year so I have pictures of their kids in the journal too since we don't usually get to see them around the holidays...and, it's always fun to look back at that type of thing. If you haven't made one of these journals you should give it a try this year!
