My Journal is ready to roll

My entire home will be decorated this Christmas with a gingerbread accent. Why? Because I have two new 12 week old kittens, the first time in 30 years, and while they are adorable Siamese babies they will go up my tree.

So I found a lot of non breakable gingerbread ornaments and called it a plan. I then decided to decorate my journal with that theme for the cover, and my date tags (stamped and embossed, they are about 1 1/2 inches then cut out).

I've also included the inside of my journal. I may add a page here and there than is not a pre made page (there are 8 acrylic, one "Merry" bingo card, two fancy cut chipboard, and the rest are either gingerbread or red Bazzill cardstock.) The size of this album's pages is 8 1/2 inches by 3 1/2", very VERY strange. But it'll be different, and I'll see how it goes! But now, I guess I'm ready!!
