Happy New Year

I apologise for my long absence, what a Christmas for all the wrong reasons! My family and friends have had lots of illnesses and the dreaded sicknes bug which has been a nightmare. I am hoping they are all on the road to recovery and I have no more hospital visits...hospitals at Christmas are the worst!
Here's to a healthier 2010!
I am just catching up with my Christmas Journal so will post some of my favourite pages after the weekend but I have finished my 25th of the Month Book. Of course the 25th of December was Christmas Day so I have included all my family and friends. The weather was lovely on Christmas Day...Bright blue sky and everything covered in snow so we took the dogs for a walk through the woods which was lovely...cold but lovely!

The pages are decorated with paper from the Craft Den Its from the PaperArtsy collection Rum and Rasin. I just love the Father Christmas design. The cute embellishments are from the 99p store, I love a bargain or two! I have also included my Christmas Tree and the great presents I received.

We are having a quiet New Year at home but cant wait to get back to normal...looking forward to Thursday's class at the Craft Den, see you all there!
