Journal Your Christmas

Here it is!! My completed Journal Your Christmas!! This is the 2nd year I have followed Shimelle's prompts (I also did some creative changes ;-) because I didn't want the same pages as last years journal!!)
Above photo is of my front cover and the little reindeer/moose is a metal tree decoration I found in my local florist shop - it was just crying out to be part of my journal!! I cannot tell you where all the PP are from as I have been collecting them for months, there is a mixture of MME, Bo Bunny, Basic Grey to name a few! Most of the alphas are American Crafts Thickers, with some glitter alphas from MM and Dovecraft. The numbers and many of the journalling boxes are from Elle's studio, the snowflakes are punched out using my Martha Stewart snowflake punch.
Manifesto and Day 1
Day 2 and 3
Day 2 (close-up) showing the page without the snowflake acetate page and you can see my snowflakes - these are wooden ones that have been painted and glittered!
Day 4 and 5
Day 6 and 7
Day 8 and 9
Day 10 and 11
Close-up of my trees that were cut from the PP, stuck on chipboard, 3d with foam pads, and used Papermania jewels.
