Here's a little blogging inspiration for the next few weeks while we count down until the big day! This year, rather than one big meme about Christmas, use the questions below as a prompt. Answer one each day of December. It doesn't have to be your entire entry, add it to whatever you are posting. I'm posting them on this first day of December and will answer one on each designated day. I will also ask each day in the month. A little holiday cheer each day! By all means, share photos to go along!

Well, this gave me an insane idea! What about creating a Christmas album? A page a day for the next twenty-five days, answering each one of these questions!
So, I'm challenging you! Play along with me as I try to scrapbook one memory each day. You can do all of the questions or just try one. But, send me a link and I'll leave you praise! Also, Anyone who completes all 25 by January 1, 2008 will get a RAK in the mail from me! You can scrapbook any size you'd like. I'm doing 8.5x11 so there's no scaning and stitching to think about. Also, remember that you don't have to answer the question directly. Just let it inspire you and then create whatever!
Here's my layout for today, inspired by Question #1: Colored lights or white lights on your house or not at all?
I can't stop playing with my computer! I figured out how to put text between the Christmas ball and the background, printed out some digital brushes (the snowflakes), and created the journaling and grey snowflakes in Photoshop and then printed it to serve as the background.
Well, what are you waiting for? It's already December 1!
