Documenting Christmas or The Return of the Mojo

I'm back again and have lots of pictures to share with you...thanks to the almost total lack of anything remotely interesting on TV (and I'm saving "White Collar" Series 1 for when I'm alone ....can then drool over Matt in private...and, yes, I know he's gay but a girl's got to have something to dream about..).....I have been crafting!!




First up...... my annual LO of our tree...for this one I used October Afternoon "Holiday Style" (think Gangnam Style but more retro) papers, embellies, trims and stickers.

Next we have the front cover of my "December Daily"
I used a Teresa Collins kit and added papers from the "It's Christmas Day!" collection by Toga (France)


This is a double page LO detailing my Christmas Countdown.
I used old papers from stash for the background ...the squares were made from scraps of the papers I've used this year.
The sketch has been adapted from a November Page Maps sketch.
The title on the second page was cut from the packaging of my French papers and the leaves and paper flowers are from an old Anna Griffin card kit.

And finally....


we have Max....who had great fun ripping up the wrapping paper!
For this LO I used papers from last year's Toga collection "1001 cadeaux"
The title is courtesy of M&S....it's a present topper.

And before you ask...yes, that really is an Arsenal rug.....you see what I have to put up with???
