OUAS 1 December 2012 challenge - "Snooze"

I promise you this post is a very short one! I only want to share the page that I made for the OUAS 1 December challenge with you.

The journalling criteria/theme is: The thing I look most forward to in December.

Write at least 2 sentences on what you look forward to in the next month. December is a festive month so your journalling could be about the Christmas season, the holidays, the presents or if you do not celebrate Christmas what does December bring for you that you look most forward to? Note:You layout DOES NOT have to be about Christmas! It can be about anything December brings.

Other ideas for journalling: an annual holiday or celebration, a specific event such as putting up the Christmas tree or pre Christmas traditions you might have leading up to Christmas, family time, snow covered fields or warmer weather, time off work, school holidays, change of weather, new season fruit.

And here is Nadia's lovely sketch:

I called my page "Snooze", quite self-explanatory if you read the journalling and look at the photo to the left tee hee! :))

All the papers are from The ScrapCake. Gorgeous and just beckoning to be fussy cut!!

The photographs are not mine, I found them on internet while I was browsing. Just adore the white on white and whitewashed and cream. My own alarm clock is far from this fancy, nor are my felt slippers this pristine ...

The word "merry" and the little snowflakes are from the Prima North Country stamp set.

The pine twig and "snow berries" are cut-off from a flower arrangement that I've had for ever. A chandelier vine in burgundy and cut-off piece from a yellow MME peal swirl to mimic Chrissy tree bling.

And that's it! Thanks ever so much for looking at my page!

Have a soupah doupah week folks! xoxoxo Eila
