Scrapping weekend for me!

UKS scrappers had a cybercrop weekend. I had intended to spend the whole weekend from Fri evening to Sunday teatime scrapping but my plans were sabotaged.
I started late on Fri evening and the LO below that was supposed to take 1 hr took me all evening and all Sat morning, there was a lot of stitching which I really enjoyed but I felt I was so slow!!
Then Sat lunchtime some of out family arrived and stayed for lunch and part of the afternnon, so managed this Santa's lettter on Saturday, I did watch Strictly in the evening and then a drama about Corrie!!
This morning was church so I got up early and chose to do this challenge LO. Santa's coming to town which had to have a photo of Santa or opening presents on Christmas morning and to use the colours red,black and white. I have to thank a scrapping friend Shirley as I reused her last year's Christmas card for part of this LO!!
I had really good intentions to crop pm but another family arrived for lunch and stayed the afternoon!
Now I am playing catch up with my Dec journal and burnt my candle for last 3 days!!

Finally started my Dec daily journal

I finally started my Dec journal but my style with help from Ali Edwards templates. I wonder if I will remember to burn my candle every day and not to burn beyond the dayLOL!!
Day 1 was my church friend Margaret's funeral but it didn't take place as her family were unable to get to the town due to the heavy snowfalls. 30cms fell on 1st Dec and the temps were below zero!
2nd Dec shows the collage of snow photos below I took on this day

Early snow and car problems!

This is our 3rd day of snow on the SE coast. We couldn't get our cats outside last night or early this morning.

It was -4C and we had had 30cms of snow in some places, too deep for our cats

After Peter had made a small path to some bushes and enticed them, they followed him down the garden!

No cars moved today except 4 wheels drives, no schools were open and all the families were at home. A day to stay warm and safe and chill out!!

I decided to start a December daily 2010 journal using Ali Edwards templates and did Day 1 and 2 which I will upload tomorrow. I also want to do Scrapology sketch this month so hoping to get my scrapping mojo back!!
