Journaling Junkie mid December 2009 {Challenge 71} Layout

I think I'm right in saying that I haven't "published" any of my Journaling Junkie layouts since around May of last year - which would make me a good 6 months behind on that one! Hmmm...can't say why really...I hate to think of myself as disorganised so let's call it time-strapped rather shall we?! As I can't show you anything new at the moment as this *&@^#%$ computer has turned adolescent on me, I'll use the opportunity to play a bit of catch up with what I have loaded already ;-D

You can hop over to the Journaling Junkie blog to read about the challenge here. I used product mostly from my Cocoa Daisy November 2009 kit "Autumn Glow" that you can find here. The beautiful K & Co. Que Sera Sera Stitched adornments & Prima bling centres all came from this amazing add-on kit "Pumpkin Latte"! I went so crazy for this kit range that I also got myself the "Spiced Cider" add-on too - full of K & Co. {one of my vintage faves}, Cosmo Cricket Earth Love& K I Memories glittered goodness!!!

I mixed Pink Paislee & Making Memories alphas & the green Prima packaging as my journaling block {btw I LOVE how almost EVERYONE has used that green packaging on their layouts recently} - I bet Prima are mystified...it's just so appealing that I remember using it on other layouts well before I saw it on anyone else's layouts on the internet - looks like we all had the same idea at the same time - amazing really!

That gorgeous gathered velvet ribbon is from Maya Road.

I actually clear-stickled that whole torn strip down the side there but it doesn't twinkle in the photo...sigh...;-(

Just in case you didn't see the "journey" sentiment on the stitched tag the title is:- JOURNEY TO CHRISTMAS 2009 & the journaling reads:- I do my best to trim the tree & decorate our home as early in December as possible even tho' the kids are still in school. Chelsea is not a very willing helper but does a great job nonetheless & dear Cami gets absolutely giddy with excitement!

Thanks ladies! Yes that sure is yummy stash there isn't it...Pearl I can't remember if I answered your question about shipping from US to here - it is roughly a month so quite long but very little choice here & nothing new so the best way to go about it!
