On the Third Day of Christmas

Posted by Picasa This is my 'On the Third Day Of Christmas' LO, for the 12 days of Christmas challenge on Janine's Blog http://angelgurl.wordpress.com/ do youself a favour, check out what everyone has been creating, Janine has links to everyones blogs.. What clever, clever girls...

The Third Day Of Christmas challenge centred around gifts. I chose to use these photo's of my children after they had ripped into their santa stockings. The journalling reads.. Christmas morning is always an early start at our home... the children are always busting to see what santa has stuffed into their stockings overnight... the children are aloud to open their stockings before breakfast time... In our house santa is just a bit of fun for the kids, they get little gifts in their stockings and the real presents come after breakfast from Mummy & Daddy....

So Janine thankyou I have now completed three LO's and about to start my fourth.. so I am grateful for the challenge and you for organising it.. I am really having fun...

Devine supplies included.. Basic Grey Printed Paper, Cloud 9 chipboard alpha's(from Spotlight),Heidi Swapp blossoms, 7 Gypsies metal tab(painted black), my fav ribbon of all time, Making memories crystal brad & black brads, little K&Co chipboard circle. and my Black Zig Pen & sewing machine.. I didn't like this LO until I scribbled on the chipboard letters, and I don't mind it at all now... TTFN Gillian
