Sian over at From High in the Sky has rekindled the Christmas Club. For the next 3 Sundays she's encouraging us to share a tip, a recipe, a story....well anything we want to share about our Christmas really.
This week I'm sharing a story, one I think I may have shared before but it's started a tradition now!
A few years ago I shared a picture of my Santa cookie jar on Facebook. My friend Sarah's husband was looking at it and as she walked past and glanced over his shoulder she said "Aww isn't that a lovely picture of Sam as a baby"!!!!! I think she needs to go to Specsavers :)
So every year since then the first thing we do when the decorations are up is send Sarah a picture of big Sam with "baby Sam".
And I often wonder if we'll ever stop laughing about it :)
Have you got a Christmas story to tell? Then head over to Sian's to share it.
A couple of weeks ago I posted a challenge I was setting myself for next year, a challenge that I was going to have a quick go at for the last couple of months of the year. It was all about picking five of my favourite photos and getting them scrapped.
I only had a couple of weeks to do this month's challenge and here are the layouts I created:
I loved putting this one together:
For this one I decided to use a layout I'd seen on Pinterest for inspiration, you can see the original here.
And for the final three layouts I took one kit:
Allowed myself two hours
To create the three layouts, I love speed scrapping this way
So now I have made a little dent in my stash while adding another five layouts to my album.
I'll be back next week to share my five favourite photos from November.
