Well, my participation to the 1st ever greek crop, apart from the fun, getting to know some of the greek scrapers and learning new stuff, included a great treat: I won a participation in Shimelle's Journal Your Christmas online class!!!
Thank you Irini for the wonderfull day and for the awesome gift!
The fact is that I was totally clueless about the JYC, so as soon as I received the details from Shimelle I plunged in the JYC forum and I got super excited! From what I gathered, you create a layout every day, from the 1st December up to the 6th of January, and for each day you 're given a different "prompt" as they say, "mission" as I understand it, and you must take a photo, do some journaling, etc, whatever you want.
The only thing that worries me is the time frame and if I 'll be able to do a different layout every day, so I chose a 6x12 format that I think will be less time consuming than a 12 x 12 (my default size), but finally I decided to take it easy even if that means skipping a day or two.
Bottom line, I want to have fun, not to add another thing on my list to make me anxious.
Nevertheless, while reading the JYC forum on Sunday afternoon, I realized that I didn't have enough christmas supplies, althought I already had 10 pages from the "Jolly by Golly" Cosmo Cricket collection it wouldn't last throught the album (37 layouts!) and I wanted it to have some consistency regarding the colours and patterns (don't mock me, I was just born this way!!!LOL) so I did an urgent search through Memories Trend and found the Basic Grey Figgy collection and it suited me exactly (thank God it was available), so I grabbed it, as well as THIS and THIS chipboard from Basic Grey. I also got red big O'wires for the binding.
Hopefully my order will be here tommorow, so I will be ready in time.
Tommorow is the big day, I 'm pretty curious and excited, I'll let you know how that goes!
