*Belated JYC - Part One*

Ooh get me I'm actually blogging two days in a row!! So without further a do........

My JYC 2012!



Did you spot Emily's addition? She kindly took a red pencil to it for me!!!! Oh the anguish! Here's a close up just in case you missed it!

Some reminders of December going-ons....

My Manifesto....Please excuse the poor photos, In my rush to share all I wrongly put quickness first instead of time consuming prettiness!

I've added in extra pages in places as I tend to do JYC and DD together. On the 1st Dec we put up our decorations and we brought Adam his own little tree for his newly decorated bedroom - he was so excited about decorating it!

He decided to put everything on one branch at first and it fell over! I convinced him eventually that everything would work better if it was spread out!


Day 2 = our lack of Christmas weather!



I only made 5 cards this year which is progress as I think I only made 2 the Christmas before! You never know it could be 10 next, Lol!


Day 4 - The perfect Christmas......


I decided to call it Christmas perfection as I love it just the way it is!


Adam counting down the days.....


...and finally before you all get bored - the beautiful lit tree we saw when we went to Bruge for the day



Thank you for all the lovely comments yesterday about my 4x6 Photo love...... What did you do with yours? Did you put them in which other layouts or put them into their own album? I'm not sure what to do - I wanted to put them into their own album with notes as a reminder but now I'm not so sure... Is this a waste of an album??? So many Questions!!

Oh bless! I used to despair when Kai doodled on something I'd worked soooooo hard on, but looking back on those items he actually made them even more special at times. Lovely pages, especially like the one made up of snowflakes ... I shall be pinning that page & scrap lifting the idea ;-p

wow what a beautiful album so far. love the Bruge tree. I think an album for the Shimelle pages would be a perfect reminder of the ideas and layouts you created and u can always add ur pages for this year using a similar theme. Make it annual event,

Hi Rachel! I've just had a lovely time catching up on all your posts. I LOVE your JYC album, and loved seeing the photos of your adorable kiddos. OMGosh they are growing so fast!!!

I love that Emily drew on your page with the red pencil. My Carrie used a crayon to "color on clothes" on the Raggedy Ann doll I made her when she was very little. At the time I was SO upset, but now (20 years later) it's a sweet memory. :o)
