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.
