Journal Your Christmas Album

Well, just in the nick of time... got my Journal ready for the first prompt on Monday and I am hoping that this year I am a little more prepared and ready for the off!! ;)

I have gone for a 12 x 9 album split through the middle to reduce the thickness.And I have engineered the closures so that I can move the brads into different slots as it grows!! Who said I never learn from previous experience???

The actual pages are large pockets with a tag inside... so each pocket covers 4 days of prompts which should keep the whole thing under control and it will be easy to add extra tags for photos etc if I need the space.

Thank you for taking the time to leave your comment, it is truly appreciated - sort of confirms that it is more than my Mum and husband that read this thing! :)
