Today’s (Jan 6) was the last prompt for my Journal your Christmas class. I had such fun with this. My pages are certainly not elaborate or the most artistic but I enjoyed spending the time creating them and looking back through our family photos.

You can see the entire album if interested : Mary’s Christmas Journal . I will have these printed out and bound together as a memory of Christmas 2008.

Speaking of fun, it is such a joy to me to work with HeartStrings quilts. This gorgeous top was pieced at our last sew-in from blocks made by Betty and the colors are so warm and rich. I quilted it in November with my Circle Lord Swirls template and now I’m hand stitching the binding on it.

  3. I’ve enjoyed your Christmas Journal and hate to see it end. I hope you are considering making pages for other occasions and sharing them, too.

  4. I love all your scrapbook pages. As I watch you do your pages, I keep thinking to myself. I really need to learn how to do some of this digital scrapbooking. But what I really want is to be able to make my own really nice blog header picture. If you ever see a class that shows how to do that, will you let us know… I love following your blog.

  5. mary great scrapbook pages…did you take a class to create those using photoshop elements? i have that program and a LOST! Just curious what the class was. Great heartstrings quilt as well!laurie

  6. I’ve enjoyed your entire Christmas album — I think you should continue to make pages as an idea hits! You’ve done a great job on them.
