JYC - 31st to the final pages!

So, just getting in before January ends, here are the last few pages of my journal. For the run up to the 31st I inserted a lovely acetate page with all this gold on which allows you a peek through to the page behind.
I was working on New Year's Eve and came home with a headache. We decided to go for a walk and got halfway round and the heavens opened! When we got home we were drenched but I wanted to make sure we got a last selphie of 2015 so took this photo - and I'll let you in on a secret - I am not wearing any trousers! My jeans were soaking and so I took them off to dry! I think I will do a full page spread to tell this story properly.
And then we are in 2016. I always like to finish my journals with the first day of the New Year. My friend Wendy joined us for dinner and spent the afternoon with us which was lovely.

We used the selphie stick again and I just love this photo! (And I had trousers on - that is why we are laughing so much as I had just told Wendy the story above.)

Penny made us the most delicious and decadent chocolate cheesecake - last blow out before getting back on plan with Slimming World!

And then I finish up every journal with a collage of photos from throughout the year.

The final word - my hopes for 2016.

I hope that you have enjoyed looking through my journal with me. Thanks for hanging in there - it took a time to post it all! I'll be back with another one next year no doubt.

This was just wonderful, Becky! You captured so many big and small moments---just the reason why I do a Christmas Journal. I was hoping to finish mine this weekend, but other things got in the way---hopefully this week.

It's such a lovely album; full of smiling faces. I've been promising myself a selfie stick for ages and you are a great advert for its benefits!

You have made a really stunning album and I have enjoyed looking at it so much x

Such a lovely wander through your life - you've captured so many little pieces, especially those stories that you'll laugh about in years to come (like the lack of trousers...)
