Five Favourites From December

This year I will be continuing with my five favourites project, it kept me up to date with scrapping the year, although there are still plenty of photos from 2015 that I want and need to scrap.

For obvious reasons it was especially hard to pick just five favourites from December! I've written a list of all of the photos that didn't make the cut but I still want to get scrapped and I know I'll get round to them eventually.  Here are my very bestest:)

Maddie putting the star on the Christmas tree just like she's done every year since she was one!
Me and Clare, friends for 33 years, at her lovely Christmas wedding:
The family :)
A couple of toffs ready for the Christmas party :)
Maddie playing Rapidough, this has to go in the album because she hates touching anything with her hands. She can't eat with her hands, stroke the dog with her hands, open doors with her hands....it's a nightmare!
As you can see from the look on her face in the photo I took when she first picked up the playdough :)
I am really looking forward to turning them in to pages for my album.

In addition, and to help my get rid of my ton of stash, I'm going to attempt to make 5 cards from all of the scraps that are left over from the layouts!  Bitten off more than I can chew? Probably but I'll give it my best shot!

Thanks for stopping by

That photo of Maddie putting the star on the tree is fabulous! I just love the joy on her face!

I love the idea of making 5 cards too.

That's quite a big thing, then, that she played with the dough. Who knows where it might lead?

5 pics, 5 pages, 5 cards - what a wonderful approach. So glad to see you carrying on with it and expanding the idea too. These are fab snapshots.

I tried commenting earlier but it doesn't seem to have worked!

Loving the one you've picked her Jo, and it's such a good idea to get you scrapping more

I've been away so MIA...so nice to come back, although with 205 posts to get through....I'm thinking I should just forget trying to catch up! ANYWAYS...love reading yours; I think that is a BRILL idea for getting photos scrapped. Love your choices. My fave is the one with your BFF....probably cos that's where I've just come home from, spending a bit of time with her!! And the hands off would REALLY be difficult. But go Maddie, getting into that playdough:):)

Fab photos - I'm sure they will all make awesome layouts!
