christmas journal {part 1}

I finally had a little bit of time to start on my journal for the JYC class. I decided to use american craft paper (from last year) and my mind's eye. They work well together. I need to print out pictures so I can do some more pages. I'm keeping it very simple, so that I can get pages done faster.
The cover

A card that I sent my oldest daughter with the card sticking out a little.

Our favorite Christmas movie this year.

christmas past

I'm not sure why, but I never scrapped the pictures from last Christmas. I've only made one layout so far. Its very simple, but I like it. :)

christmas cards

This year I didn't have time to make cards like I have the past two years. I went to the store and bought two different packs of 32 cards. As I was addressing them I kinda wished I planned ahead more, so that I could have made cards. Oh well, maybe next year. :)
I sent one to my oldest daughter and plan on putting that one in my Christmas journal. She loves to get mail.

winter is here

Lately it has been raining and cold here. Only getting up to 48 degrees. Some might laugh, but for Texas that is cold! hah I do prefer this over snow even though I sometimes wish snow would magically appear on Christmas and then disappear afterwards. After living in a place that had snow it was fun to open gifts, eat a Christmas dinner, and play in the snow. Kaylee really misses it.
