Reflecting on December

I wanted to post last night but time escaped me again.. Yesterday was Adam and Emily's last day at school for the Christmas holidays. It was also my last day at work so we get a lovely two weeks off together. Sadly Steve doesn't as he is a shift worker BUT he is off Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day! *Little excited dance*

I was reflecting on my 'to-do' list this morning over a cupola and couldn't believe I have got to the 19th of December without even sharing the cover of my JYC **Ekk!** Lets rectify that now shall we? 
 
I started off with a Studio Calico 6x8 Red Album, the same one I used last year...


I then used a white gel pen o draw little Christmas trees all over the album, I had seen an album like this but it wasn't available so I thought I would make my own.

 
Not great lighting but here it is after I had doodled on it...

 
I then embellished! I cut out a stag from some grey felt and layered it over  doily with twine an some pretty bits...

 
Close up?

 
Hope you are having a lovely Christmassy evening, I will be back soon with more.
 
Bye for now!
