The Start...

This is the first page in my journal. In general I will do a front and back for one day (though there will be exceptions). Since I decided that I want to take photos of my finished pages actually *in* the album, you will sometimes see the back of a page the day after (to be able to photograph complete spreads...if that makes any sense). So this photo shows the front only of day 1. Tomorrow you'll see the back of day 1 and the front of day 2 (which makes a complete spread) and so on...

For the first day I have journaled about why I'm making my journal and what I love about Christmas. I'm kinda following the class by Shimelle, which I have done the previous two years also, but I will change some prompts...as I always have done. With me not being from the UK, some prompts just don't suit me. There are some Swedish traditions which I want to feature in my journal and of course the fact that we celebrate Christmas (food, presents, everything...) on the 24th and not the 25th etc. So I will stick with the prompts when they suit me and other days I will do my own thing... :)
