12 days of Christmas ...

I've been playing along with a Christmas layouts class - well I should correct that .... I've been attempting to play along with a Christmas layouts class - unsuccessfully it seems.  Have all good intentions (like always) but just can't seem to eek out sufficient time to get them done.  Not all bad news though I've done four so far so a quarter!! of the 12 layouts - I'll get there in the end and add them here as I go along.

Day 1 - inspiration from Darcy Dowdle

Day 2 - inspiration from May Flaum

Can't show this one atm as it's an inspiration piece for January From Screen 2 Scrap.

Day 3 - inspiration from Karen Grunberg.

Day 4 - inspiration from Tami Morrison

Non Australian Christmas wishes ...

I've done very little non December Daily or Journal Your Christmas scrapbooking this month - in fact I've been a very bad blogger all round.  It will be on my New Year's resolution to do better in 2012.

I have however, put together a layout for ARTastic where this pretty little painting "A blessing of Christmas" by Thomas Kinkade of a wintry snow scene got me to thinking about how irrelevant I find Christmas cards we receive each year with these types of depictions are to us in Australia where our Christmas' are usually hot and summery.

Added criteria was to include a snowman, Christmas tree and the word "Christmas" in the title.

Wild weather ...

Baby it's wild outside - we had 125mm of rain in a 24hr period (mostly between 5am and 6.30am) making 12th Dec the wettest December Day for 91 years where I live.  Roads were closed all over - long delays everywhere.

Anyone for using the drive through for a Maccers breakfast?

My hubby drove to work in this ..
