Journal Your Christmas, Dec 3 and 4

Dec 3's prompt was about Christmas cards. Do you buy them, make them from scratch, etc. Since I haven't even started that project yet, I will skip that page until later! Christmas is officially on hold until after LAD's birthday on Dec 11. Just doesn't seem right to start with Christmas yet, well at least decorating, doing cards, etc.
Dec 4ths prompt was about your idea of the perfect Christmas. My idea of the perfect Christmas is pretty much based on happy childhood memories and that's what I journaled about. The light colored paper here flips up to refeal journaling underneath. I hope to create some of the same happy moments for LAD and hope he grows up with happy memories of perfect Christmas's too.
Love this paper from Basic Gray-Figgy Pudding!. Santa is a stamp and the tree is a rub-on. I am going to put clear glaze over the chipboard letters so they are a little shinier and stand out a little more.
Christmas is 3 weeks from today (i'm still on Tuesday, even though it's 1:41 AM. 1:41 AM Holy Cow-off to bed). 1 week until LAD turns 2! Yikes!!!

I'm right there with you on the Christmas cards. I'm hoping to get them done this weekend, but we'll see... You're ahead of me though I have the 3rd, 4th, and as of 5 minutes ago the 5th prompt to do. YIKES!

I love your page. The monochromatic palette is wonderful. I think you captured the beauty of the season perfectly. Great job!
