Hi! Dana here today sharing a second project for the December Joy Challenge. I started with patterned papers from the gorgeous UHK Gallery Tropical Fruits Collection and put together a fun mini album to hold my favorite dessert recipes. I love chocolate and baking. Sharing homemade treats with my family and friends brings me so much joy!
I used one of Marivic's stunning handmade tags. The chocolate tag is the perfect topper for my mini album as many of my favorite sweet treats include some type of chocolate! If you're looking to try a fantastic cookie recipe for the holidays, I highly recommend this Chewy Chocolate Gingerbread Cookie!
Here are all the challenge details:
We have a two-part challenge this month. This time of year is perfect to reflect on the past and to look forward to what is yet to come. It's a season for being thankful, to surround yourself with loved ones and to enjoy the simple pleasures life has to offer.
Many call this the "most joyous time of the year." With this in mind, the December challenge is simply: Joy. What brings you Joy? What always puts a smile on your face? Joy can be interpreted in many ways. Think about what person, place, activity, pet, hobby or simple pleasure gives you joy. This can be anything--that first warm cup of morning coffee, reading your favorite book, your family, your dog cuddling up next to you! Think outside of the box.
The second part of this challenge is that you must include journaling. Your journaling must be at least 3 sentences or more. Jotting down places and dates do not count. Document your thoughts and explain why the subject you chose to scrap brings you joy.
Here's the challenge board to bring you some inspiration.
