December Daily: Days 15-21

Welcome to week 3 of December Daily.
Day 15 was the day we went to see Goodnight Mister Tom.  You can see that the 15th falls in the album with a sheet of acetate and a chipboard page in the middle.  The reverse of the chipboard page has an envelope The Boy Child received from his wee friend in Australia stuck to it.  The envelope holds his friend's photo Christmas card.
Day 16: the day with the card and paper reindeer:
Suffice to say, I have made any more yet ...
Day 17: the day we went to see the nation's Christmas tree:
The green chipboard tree and flowers (cut in half) were in the Studio Calico kit.
Day 18: a non-Christmassy day.  The most exciting thing to happen was Paddy Bear making an appearance at Street Dance class.
Day 19: another normal day, but an afternoon filled with the sound of Christmas pop.
Day 20: the day we went to see the Blunderbus Theatre Company perform The Owl Who was Afraid of the Dark.  This is another day where there is an acetate sheet and a chipboard page in the middle.
The reverse of the chipboard page shows The Boy Child with my life-long friend, who'd come over for supper, drinks and chat.
Day 21: the day we hosted Drinks and Nibbles for nine children and ten parents/grandparents.  It could have been chaotic.  It should have been chaotic.  In reality, it was fabulous.  All nine children were super well-behaved.  There were no dramas, no tears, no fallings out.  Brilliant.
With just four sleeps to go to the Big Day, my album is already looking fabulously fat and chunky.  But there will be room for four more days of Christmas adventures.

Ruth, I need to take several leaves out of your books and apply them to my own scrapping. Your approach is wonderful and I love seeing these snippets of life so beautifully captured!
