Five Favourites Finished!

Finally I have finished the layouts for my five favourite photos from December!  It's been a busy few weeks and, despite hauling my stash to and from Bournemouth, I didn't get much done and I kind of lost my mojo :(

But now it's back and it feels good :)

Here's Maddie putting the star on the tree, we have a similar photo every year in the albums so I didn't bother with journalling this time:
An amazing Christmas wedding that I went to.  I'm not sure about the background paper I've used but I love that the "five" is quite prominent because the wedding was on the 5th December.  I had been thinking of using some doilies on the page but I couldn't find a single white one in my stash!  This layout sat on my desk for a few days and I knew it needed some finishing touches but wasn't sure what until Shimelle's challenge this week was to use hearts :)
Another layouts inspired by Shimelle, well Glitter Girl really! Doing a no thought layout was a great way to find my mojo and using a black and white photo meant I didn't have to colour match with my papers :)
Now I have just realised that this one doesn't have a title! I did the layout at Paul's and didn't have the right alphabet with me, once it's added it will say "A Couple of Swells".  Paul really surprised me with his outfit for my Christmas party, he looked amazing!
And finally, the girl who can't touch anything with her hands, playing Rapidough!  I love these papers that were kindly given to me by my friend Lorna, I knew Maddie had the perfect, matching t-shirt, I just had to find the perfect photo to use them :)  The title isn't that clear in the photo but it says "Hands Off"
I really enjoyed using up some stash and getting these memories in my album.

I'll be back with my five favourite photos from January soon.

Thanks for stopping by

Gorgeous pages...they all have that "christmassy" look about them....& I REALLY like the couple of swells party page.... it's a great idea you have of choosing 5 faves and scrapping them. Wish I could be that organised!!

I love all your layouts, in particular I love the wedding photo of you and your friend, it is so full and busy it makes it looks like a really happy layout - which obviously it is!

Not only are your pages wonderful; but you really manage to convey the enjoyment you had making them too. It makes me want to run off and scrapbook
