Day Two of Journal Your Christmas

Dreaming of a White Christmas. At least that is what today’s prompt from Shimelle made me think about. One day hopefully we will get to experience that side of the world and the beauty of a white Christmas.

For now I enjoy the part of the Northern Hemisphere that we currently reside in. After all the hot summers in Australia, with the BBQ or picnic type meal on Christmas day, it is lovely to be somewhere cooler.

That’s what I have written about for day two’s entry in my journal. I took a screen shot of the weather and made myself a ‘cool’ looking layout. Complete with snowflakes which were also a part of today’s prompt. We had fun playing with a digital snowflake maker. Those things can get seriously addictive. Keep the screen out of site if you have any munchkins too or else they will be lined up waiting to have a go as well.

How do I know that? 🙂

This week I plan to work snowflake making into the homeschool day. Maybe for science. We may even make some out of borax if I can find it at the local supermarket. We’ll get out the paper and scissors and have some hybrid fun. Then We’ll cover them in clear contact and add them to the journal.

I have discovered one issue with making my tags all the same colour. As I am not planning the album to be the same kit or colour all the way through it is possible that the tags won’t suit the layout. I may have to rethink the daily numbering.

This page is 8 x 8 and already I didn’t want to add the tag to the page so will perhaps make another laminated one and attach it in the journal above this page. Or make a matching tag along the lines of the original but change the colours.

I have used kits by the Bisontine, Julie Bullock, Jofia Devoe, and Kasia. All available at Shabby Pickle Designs.
