Twas The Night Before...

The monthly challenge for January over on UK Scrappers got us starting the year nice and gently, we simply had the prompt "Twas the night before..."

I knew I had the perfect photos and the perfect story.
Over 19 years ago I made the above stocking for Maddie, everything was made by hand and I was very proud of it.  Fast forward to Christmas 2012 when Alfie decided he wanted the chocolate from the bottom of the stocking and nothing was going to stop him getting it.  We ended up with a holey stocking and a ruined Christmas :(
This year Alfie made it up to Maddie by apologising with a stocking of his own :)
Maddie loved it because she had a keepsake and double presents!
And I think they both looked beautiful under the tree.

So job done for the challenge and another funny story in the album.

Thanks for stopping by
Jo xx

Ah yes, I remember how upset poor Maddie was. A lovely solution and a great story to share on your page.

That's a great story, beautifully documented (and the stocking looks lovely too)

Such a pretty page. I knew you were just as upset last year by what happened with the stocking. So Alfie made everyone's Christmas this year :)

This challenge was tailor made for you :)

Love this blog post - we had a special needs Retriever once who ate all the decorations off the presents I had so lovingly wrapped because I had incorporated feathers into the gift bows!

Stunning page.
