December's Story

Hi Everyone!

I just finished a new project, I tried my hand at a December's Story Book and it was such fun!  I was inspired by Kathy Files & Scrapbook & Cards Today, as they both used this file folder lapbook in the past.  Here are a few pictures!

I used the 12 x 12 paper kit by Carta Bella 'so this is CHRISTMAS' line by Carina Gardner.

My wonderful Mom passed away from breast cancer last October and we just couldn't bear to celebrate Christmas without her.  Mom had a stroke when she was 40 and 8 years later my father passed away so Mom has lived with us for many years and therefore she was a huge part of my daily life.  I decided I just couldn't continue to 'Skip' Christmas so I needed to develop a new tradition and I chose this daily log of my journey to Mom's most favorite holiday of the year.  I can share with Mom what I did each day leading up to Christmas Day with pictures & journaling, taking it one day at a time, recording our new way of celebrating Christmas.

There is a Challenge over at Simon Says Stamp to create a 'Christmas Countdown' so if you decide to make a countdown project be sure to enter it there for a chance to win a $50 gift certificate!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!

Have a SCRAPtastic day!
