Journal Your Christmas 2008, week 1

Whew, got this caught up this weekend. Been taking photos all along and doing some journaling, and finally got time to print and assemble.
I'm doing a combination of Journal Your Christmas with December Daily.
Here's how it's turning out so far...
I may put a different photo just behind the cover of this. But this looks OK for now! Lots of fun colors here!

Repurposed a glossy magazine advertisement for the background of this page, since I didn't actually have a photo of the event! Duh!

Dec 7)
Printed two 4x6s and glued them back to back. Used a white Sharpie paint pen to draw the line around the photo and write the day-seven.

Did a photo collage in Photoshop and printed it and stuck it in. Did some journaling around the clock photo in white before printing. Drew a while line to separate the photos after I printed it, with a white Sharpie paint pen.
