JYC 2011 and 12 days of Christmas

Regular readers will know that this is the time of year when all scrapping stops for me, and I spend my time making my Christmas Journal. I have already organised the papers and embellishments for this years journal, and decided to use an A4 format, after using 6x12" for the past two years.

I do admit to being late getting started this year, but hope to get pages done at a crop in Bedworth today, photos are ready, so I've no excuse at all!I did find myself asking the question, "Will I have anything new to record?" but 3 days in and I already have a number of photos and ideas to include.
And as if I didn't have enough to do, I'm also enrolled on CJs online photography course 12 days of Christmas, to give my photographic mojo a kick up the backside.
First job was to take a festive self portrait, here's my effort... took ages, but can see it getting into the JYC!
I look a bit miserable, but that's only because this is the last of about 100 shots using the self timer. Very wearing.
The shot was taken in the mirror, and as HoHoHo reads the right way if you turn it upside down in the mirror I was pleased how it turned out.

I really like your self portrait. I need to take mine... but taking a photo of myself in my pj's is not something I want to do right now! Love your album cover... super cute!!!

I think that is a great idea for a self portrait and a great shot.I need to do some self portraits for next week and I dread to think what look I will have on my face when I finish :0)

Just wanted to tell you that I've been enjoying the entries you posted on the JYC forum...I saw your pages for both December 2nd and 3rd and thought they were both fabulous!

I love the photo and I agree, it's really hard to do a selfie!
I don't really think your Christmas would be the same if you didn't do JYC...and you have to hand it to Shimelle, she's come up with it again!!
