JYC Days 1 & 2

In reality I should be calling this a December Daily, since I've strayed so far from Shimelle's JYC prompts that it's completely unrecognisable as a JYC album! I spent the first two days of the month on a fantastic hen do in York, so of course my first two pages had to document it. And given that I managed to take so many photos, I actually ended up with three double spreads for the first two days! Here they are:
I'm really enjoying this project, I love working with the small pockets, and am definitely keen to start Project Life in the new year. One thing I am struggling with though is photographing the completed spreads - does anyone have any tips?

A Floral Farewell

Last Sunday's challenge over at The Studio was all about layers - which couldn't be more perfect for me! I finally cut into some Lily Bee 'Persnickety' papers that I've been hoarding, and came up with this layout.
Lots of layers in here, including paper, ribbon, a glassine envelope, journaling card, stamps, stickers, wood veneers and gems. Phew!
I'm currently obsessed with working on my December Daily album, I've got my numbers/journaling cards prepped up to the 15th, and I'm up to date with photos (just need one more for today, but plenty of time - I'm waiting for the snow that the weather forecast promised this morning...). I haven't got a photo printer at home so I'm waiting until I've got enough to warrant an online order. Once I've got some completed pages I'll start sharing them here!
Thanks for popping in today! Hope you're enjoying some holiday crafting :D
