JYC day #1

I'm not sure what will happen to my Journal Your Christmas efforts this year.  At the moment I have a diary note of each day's content and if need be several days may just be a bullet point list on one page.  For now I have a picture on my camera of Day #1 (pre-chickenpox) so I thought I would quickly share.
I had not given any thought to a Christmas manifesto but there was one phrase on Shimelle's that caught my attention about 'Letting go of worry and embracing joy.', so I went with it.  However, I didn't want the white background, so I re-typed it in Word and used a background page from Unconditional by Jen Wilson and a frame from Authentic Me by Lauren Reid (all included with May Flaum and Audrey Neal's fab book 'Paper & Pixels', which I can highly recommend if you are thinking of starting to try some hybrid work and only have Word to play with).
Once printed, I added it to my pre-decorated page and added some embellishment with more Daisy D paper, Papermash tape, torn music sheet and my page number from The Girl's Paperie.
Finished off with my punched 'continuity' stars and a bit of Stickles.

That phrase is surely one to live by isn't it?! Hope the dreaded CP has left the building xx
