25 days of Christmas and Dreamgirls.......

So after seeing Ali Edwards 25 days of Christmas last year and loving it.....Michelle on Treasured Scrapbooking challenged us all to make one. It was just the push I needed, so Saturday afternoon and evening I dug into my old stash of Christmas goodies with a little bit of new too, used some leftover 7 Gypsie pages from an 8x8 mini album and made my 25 Days of Christmas Mini. It was so much fun to make and I am so happy with how it turned out. I just need to get some rings to bind it together. But now come December 1st, I am ready to journal and add photos from each day of the month to help catch this spetacular season - Christmas. I just love this time of year!!



Also, Dreamgirls has their next challenge posted and you have to use metal, a mask and thankful. I opted not to use a photo this time and just journaled about what I am thankful for. Also used up some of my basic grey chipboard that has been sitting around. There are two prizes this month - each worth $50 from Midnight Oils Scrapbooking. Hurry over and check out the challenge.....we all have something to be thankful for and you could win an awesome prize too
