'Twas The Night Before Christmas

Today is Christmas Tree Day!

Today is also my angel girl's anniversary so I have gone through my own personal grieving routine today and me and the kids are now looking forward t
o putting the Christmas Tree up tonight.
Same day every year. I love traditions :)

Thought I would quickly post a b
ook I finally got around to making. I have wanted to do this book for ages and thought now that I have grandchildren it's the perfect time to start another tradition. So we will be reading this book every Christmas Eve which has the original "'Twas The Night Before Christmas" poem inside .

I created a hybrid book this time using elements from the gorgeous Cara Mia Designz Kit "Glitzy Christmas". I printed the digi pages out on white Bazzill and stuck them to an old Kaiser wood calendar that I hadn't got around to using (oops!)
Then I used some ribbon and Basic Grey Chipboard Letters covered with lots of lovely glitter on the front.
Front Cover

Inside Pages

And last but not least a layout that I did ages ago and totally forgot to share!
Just a layout about me....

Thanks for visiting :)
