Christmas album

So all through December I had planned to Shimelle's Christmas Journal but it took to January before I started by which time I have lost inspiration. So I've used the prompt more as a theme and I had always planned to have as many old and new photos, this will mean its more a scrapbook album rather than journal.
This is the front page and the photo are of the Christmas lights in Guildford High Street. 
Unfortunately I'm not keen on this page all that blank space is annoying me so we will see if stays that well, part of me whats to stamp holly along one of the sides and across the top.

Like I say I wanted some old photos, sadly there are not any of me when I was young photos were expensive those days and rarely taken not even sure there was a camera in the house.

I love that I'm able to use some of the stickers that come with the Christmas paper packs that I rarely use and of course my cricut had a bit of workout for the holly.
The idea of use 8 by 8inches is to help me speed up my scrapbooking so far it hasn't made a difference I still move papers around and around.
Hope you can pop back at 2pm for the Simon Says Stamps Challenge.
