What I Did At The Crop | One

So I spent the weekend of January 18th - 20th at a crop retreat in Reading, as I have every January for years on end.  This year I got quite a bit accomplished which I'll share over the next few days.

First up, let's talk about Christmas!  Here's my three page layout about Christmas Greetings sent and received in 2012.

We didn't receive nearly as many photo cards as usual, in fact I believe receipt of cards overall was down and if it weren't for the lovely ones from all my bloggy friends I wouldn't have had much to scrap with at all! At least a few of you will recognize your creations in the center layout.

And then there is this page inspired by my 12 Days of Christmas photography class:

And finally in the 12x12 world, I did a bit of work in Sarah's School of Life, 7th - 12th grade album, most of which I'm sure she wouldn't want me sharing online, so I'll just leave you with this page from her Junior year:
More to come! :)

You know, Jacky's card makes the perfect addition to a scrap page - it is its own complete embellishment!
Sarah's picture is so lovely - I am sure the whole album is filled with great shots!

These pages are so full of interest and detail and you've packed such a lot into your retelling of the year! Isn't that a lovely photo of Sarah?

I know more and more people are sending e cards....but I just love the 'real' thing arriving in an envelope myself!

I think the fun you had making these pages really comes across. Great stuff - it's nice to see a little reminder of Christmas on a blustery and grey January day
