8th December

Well, today’s post is pretty simple, though there are a few photo’s πŸ˜‰

We made a trip to one of our local shopping centre’s for our annual visit to Santa and for our photo with the big guy in red. Love this tradition!! Perhaps because I never had the magic ruined for me as a child. Perhaps I’m just that sort of person!! Either way, the magic, wonder and pure joy on my boy’s faces when they (yep, they this year!!) see him is priceless!!

I was the photographer for these photo’s – one of those, bring your own camera Santa’s but that was totally ok by me πŸ™‚

First up the 1st of 3 pages (well, 1 1/2 whole pages, back, front and back)

I’m a big journaller in case you hadn’t noticed that already!! I always get lots of people comment on all my journalling in our PL album. I also talk alot πŸ˜‰ Haha!!

And my big guy with Santa

Let’s not forget my littlest little guy!! Look he little he looks on that big chair!

As you can see, I have been busy playing with cameo πŸ˜€ I am not afraid to admit that most of the time, I really love my handwriting. It was something I always wanted to love as a child so I worked on it. I wrote up a sheet of Christmas type words, scanned them and then imported them into my cameo software. Gold foil from Stampin Up – a few playing with settings and I got it πŸ˜‰

Love how they turned out!

And how our pages sit in our album

On the right you can see the beginnings on what will be our Elf on the Shelf inserts – there will be 3 to be precise. 8 on each page protector. I LOVE the see through pockets!! I will share these as I complete them – I am printing at home and in effort to keep costs not soaring I have been printing 6 2×2 (well, a tiny bit smaller) photo’s at a time. Some very simple journalling on the backs of each pocket. I attempted a mini album last year just for Pixie and though it is complete (that’s the important thing!!) I am not happy with it and decided it was simply too much to take on at this time of year.

Also, one last photo, I just couldn’t help myself!! A me and Santa selfie!!

Like I said, totally LOVE this guy πŸ˜‰

Hope your December is coming together quickly and easily for you!! Till tomorrow, possibly tonight even as there will be no photo editing happening for today’s entry πŸ™‚
