Thursday Thoughts

And so a New Year begins! My wishes for a peaceful and contented 2015 are sent to everyone.

The last of my December Daily pages to share today. I've so enjoyed creating this album and it's seemed much more logical and relevant to me this year. I think it helped enormously to have prepared all the journal cards and embellishments well in advance and I've just loved using all the digital products for the photo pages, so quick and easy when time is at a premium.

Day 26 - And almost a white Christmas!

Loving the big snow blobs on this photo, reminds me just how heavy the snowfall was for a little while. Shame it was late at night after the kids had gone to bed.

Day 27 - One of the many board games played over Christmas. Love all the banter and interaction that happens while playing!

I stood up on my chair to get this shot from above, a little blurred I know, but I couldn't actually see what I was taking until I'd climbed down - too old/lazy to redo it! And have you ever tried to get two boys to stay still while playing?!!

Day 28 - Murray came to visit wearing his new red collar - his Christmas present from his master & mistress and his Christmas bowtie - a present from me.

Such a handsome chap!

Day 29 - The part of Christmas that leaves my house unbearably quiet and empty.

All packed up and checking the sailing times. Someone's not a bit camera shy!

Day 30 - A really poor choice of something to do to fill my time, but I suppose it stopped me brooding.

And here they are:

Day 31 - Time to close down my album and think about the best bits - not easy to choose, it's been a good one this year!

And my two daughters in law making an appearance.  The pocket was inspired by Deb - here and the tags by Mandy - here.

And just before I put my album to bed a couple of shots of it all completed.

And my last link up with Let's December Daily. So much inspiration and friendship from their DT - sending a huge thank you and looking forward to seeing you all again next Christmas.
