A Note from Sam
Inspired by Janna Werner's video on TwoPeasInABucket to create a double page layout - one page featured all the bright colours while the other page create a monochromatic layout. I also challenge myself to scrap a Christmas layout with ZERO Christmas papers & embellishment from my stash. I am also obsessed with typing journaling with my cute pink typewriter.

Left: Our Christmas tradition: collect an Xmas edition mug from Starbucks every year. However we have been getting more than ONE for the past two years.
Right: All I want for Christmas is: everybody stays healthy & happy.

December Fun Fact
I don't celebrate Christmas in particular but December is always my favourite month of the year! I used to travel overseas every December for a mini getaway. This serves as a quick recharge for me to start next year fresh & energetic. I also enjoy strolling around the malls and taking pictures of beautiful Christmas deco. And the best part is, shop till I drop when there is Christmas sales!
