Remember When @ Scrap Africa

For some it's Christmas Time/ December Holidays/ Hannukah in sunny Africa....for some it's a snowy winter in Europe...  
Tell us what a traditional December is like for you, in your home town, city or country. So journalling is a must...even if just telling us the story on your blog!

You can create a layout or card or altered project to depict this theme for Scrap Africa
Here is the inspiration..
Now the challenge was to work on a LO of my traditional Christmas, but my dear Jade was in Sweden near Christmas time 2005 & thought the photos she had returned with just perfect for here is mine LO..

I used this lovely Kaisercraft paper, plus lots of bits of PL cards I have some bandage, a lovely chipboard lamppost & a touch or two of Kindy Glitz.

I have this 'thing' for gold & it was lovely to use up some glittery supplies...

My journaling states...

Travelling from sunny Australia to the depths of winter in Europe was such a change.
Snow & ice, short days, overcoats, scarves & beanies...but so magnificent too.
Christmas time in Sweden for Jade in 2005. Cold & beautiful.

Thank you for a lovely challenge ...the first one I have done in over a week...
