December Journaling Challenge--EDIT W/WINNER

Post by suewho372 » Sun Dec 01, 2013 4:14 pm

Hello Cherries!
In the spirit of JYC I would ask that you create a layout journaling a christmas memory of any kind, from any year. It can be something you remember as a child or that your child did or even something about christmas now.
Can have a pic or not-- doesn't have to, it is the memory you are trying to preserve and sometimes we don't always have a photo to go with it.

Entries can be of all types as long as there is journaling! A $5 gift card will be awarded to a random participant. As another hostess (citygirl22) pointed out December is a hugely busy month so I am extending my challenge until JAN 5 midnight.

Have fun with those memories!!! remember if you have questions just PM or reply to post!!! :)
Hello ALL!! Winner is: Deanna 13 chosen by random.org. Congrats to Deanna ( I will get your gc soon!) Thank you so much to everyone who participated-- you all had such great layouts I wanted to give all of you a gc!!

Here's one I was inspired to do, I never would have thought of it if it weren't for this challenge, and this morning the colour challenge was posted; one of the choices was blue and silver. How perfect is that ? Journalling reads: "I remember going to see Star Wars at the show with my parents when I was little. Much later while shopping with my mom, I begged her to buy me Princess Leia shoes like these but she refused. I was so surprised and happy to find them under the tree that year!"

Here's my submission, combining with the Nov/Dec BOM challenge.

Every year after dinner on Thanksgiving and/or Christmas, we play games, and in my family we did this as long as I could remember. Monopoly is definitely one of our favorites. Thanks for the challenge and the chance to scrap about a family holiday tradition/memory!

Here is my entry:

Christmas will always be associated with my Daddy's and Grandmother's birthdays which are immediately after Christmas day. This layout commemorates a tradition that my mom has continued this year, even after my dad's passing last year.

Here is my layout - its based on the Christmas Tradition of baking and decorating cookies using the same sugar cookie recipe that was handed down to me by my mother who received it from her grandmother:

Image

ournaling: My mom has always baked christmas cookies and had my brother and I decorate them for as long as I can remember. When I was 15 years old, my mom handed down the sugar cookie recipe to me - which happens to be my great-grandmother's sugar cookie recipe. Its been a tradition to use that sugar cookie recipe and no other. I have continued that tradition for the past 18 years; and will continue for many more years to come.


I am combining it with Photography Challenge.
