Christmas at CKC - 12 Days of Christmas - Challenge #12 - MF Lisa

 There were so many childhood memories to record, it was tricky to pick just one so let's see where the inspiration took me today!

I wanted to use the technique on my page but I was so caught up with all the pretties from the Mix and  Mingle collection by Simple Stories that it kind of went out of my mind. But there are plenty of repeated patterns here with the colours, tags, loops, bows, splats etc so I hope you will forgive me!

Anyway, as you can see, this page is not yet journaled but I know exactly what I want to say, except for a few details that I want to check with my mum when I see her next week. So I thought I would save the story until that it all sorted and I can be sure that I'm writing the real story rather than an embellished one!

However, I'll give you a summary of what the story is all about: When I was really young, I desperately wanted a doll's tea set and asked Father Christmas to bring one. On Christmas morning, there was a letter in my sack telling me that there was a little girl somewhere else in the world who had lost her parents and would be getting no presents. So Father Christmas was taking my doll's tea set to her as I had plenty of other presents. Of course, that made me sad not to get the present but I was very concerned about that other little girl and hoped that she would enjoy playing with the set. Of course, some time later I received a beautiful blue and white china tea set from my grandparents and these are the last two remaining pieces which I treasure very much! I have no idea when they gave it to me or why they needed all the intrigue which are the details I hope to get from my mum - fingers crossed! 

I plan to get that story placed in the area under the tags which might help to cover up some of the smeared ink splats! I'm really hopeless!!!

It was fun to just use up pieces of the collection and not worry about holding onto items or what other things I could be doing with it all. I know that using a set collection isn't exactly what CKC is all about but it's fun to just use up supplies we have no matter how old or new they are so that IS the spirit of CKC! 


We'd love it if you'd join in.
