Journal Your Christmas

Journal your Christmas


Journal Your Christmas class starting soon over at Shimelle.com. Are you doing anything special to record your memories this Christmas? I thought I would try this out, as a way to preserve some of the memories of Rhys' first Christmas.

Lest We Forget



The handsome devil in the middle is my Grandfather. He fought in WWII, even though he didn't have to. I'm so proud of him, and so thankful. I wish I had told him so when I had the chance.

Don't forget the challenges at The Paper Element!


Click Here to visit the blog at The Paper Element.

  • Challenges can be completed anytime before the last day of the month that they’ve been posted.
  • Post a comment to the challenge with a link to the image of your project. That’s all you have to do to enter!
  • We’ll do the drawing on the first of each month and post the winner’s name here on the blog. If you’ve left your e-mail address in the comment line, we’ll e-mail you as well.
  • You don’t need to use The Paper Element products on your challenges (although we’d love that!).
  • Most challenges will be posted on Saturday mornings, although we’ll occasionally have a mid-week challenge posted by a Guest Design Team member. (Watch in November for a Guest Design Team member challenge!! That gives you an extra entry!)

This made me laugh...

This came across my blog feeder today. And it made me laugh:


Craftastrophe (November 8/08)


Reason 1: I have a twisted sense of humour
Reason 2: I've had a serious hate-on for Squirrels since they did so much damage to our house
Reason 3: For about 5 seconds I contemplated buying these for my Mother-in-Law.

Umm, don't click if you love squirrels.

November Page Maps



I was lucky enough to get to do one of the Pagemaps sketches for the November Pagemaps newsletter. The size sketch I was given was the HalfMaps (6x12), and of course it was a great opportunity to use The Paper Element papers. I used papers from the "Toria" collection.
