Christmas in September, ho, ho, ho! Oldie style of course.

Good morning and how the devil are you this Friday?
You can't escape the dreaded C word anymore as we start to get items in at work for both for the festive season and Halloween.  Scary but true.
Christmas is my favourite time of the year in retail, NOT!
If you want to be put off the festive season do work in retail, especially food, it WILL put you right of Christmas for life.  Honestly.
In honour and joy of the fastly approach doom that is Christmas I thought I'd share a festive scrapbook page for a change this Friday.  Will you be joining me?
On a Friday I encourage you to dig out an old crafty project, something you have made yourself and re post it, linking with me below.  I love to see your creative journey and will visit all who play along.
Thank you in advance of joining me today, I really look forwards to seeing your projects.

My project for today.....

I have used papers from Little Yellow Bicycle Christmas delight range. 
The ribbon, bling, tags, rub ons and acrylic star are from my own stash.
You can see my original post here as there is a story behind this photograph.

I do wish I had made time for more scrapbooking as the boys were younger or kept a journal as so many little stories that make you smile get lost.  My memory is not the best.  
Every time I look back at scrapbook pages I always wish I made more, maybe I should make time to do this rather than making cards?  
I do enjoy looking back at the very few stories I have remembered, some of the pages now make me cringe but I think that is all part of the charm of looking back, seeing how styles and fashions have changed, yes even in paper crafting.

That's all from me today, I hope you enjoyed my oldie and I look forwards to seeing yours.
I'm in work again today and tomorrow, all work and no play makes for a very tired mum!
Still I am enjoying some girlie fun on Saturday afternoon, more about that next week.

Hello Erika, I so remember this lovely page and story, I popped back to read it again, it was the "mess" you had to clear up that triggered the memory of the post.
Just about to link my Oldie, have a super weekend, Kate x

Hi Erika,
wonderful scrapbook page.
It's a very super design.
I too wish I had more time to scrapbook also.
Just managed to pop mine on this week as I have family staying at the mo.
Have a very lovely weekend.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
