    CONGRATULATIONS Marilyn (@mcurtt), you're the winner! Look for a PM from me soon with your coupon code! Thanks for playing everyone!!

    *******

    Do you have unscrapped photos from previous Christmases that are still haunting you? That's me, every single year. I start Document Your December (DYD) every December with so much enthusiasm, but as it get closer and closer to Christmas, I get busy and lose steam. July always seems to be the perfect month to finish up those pages. I have enough space from last December to look at the photos with fresh eyes and we're enough ahead of the next holiday season that I don't lose focus by wanting to work on a current year's photos.

    So... I'm ready to plow through pages for my 2019 DYD album. Thankfully, at this point in the year, I'm able to realize that being done is my goal. I can make pretty pages if I want to... but that's not currently my focus. Here are some of the pages I've gotten done so far this month...

    (More to be uploaded in the morning)

    My challenge to you is to dig out some photos from past Christmases that you still need to scrap for DYD, Project Life, your yearly album or just because and get scrapping!

    Reminder: Your page must contain at least 75% current Lilypad product. Your page should be posted in your Lilypad Gallery AND to this thread.

    This challenge will have one random $3 winner. You have until 11:59pm EDT on July 31 to complete.

    I am still trying to scrap pages of childhood photos so I might just see if there are any Christmas ones to work with.

    This page made me look at my DYD 2019. Shocked to see I had not finished the last few days of the month. We got so busy with our move that I never went back to finish so I am so thankful for this prompt.

    I never got around to scrapping photo of this Christmas decoration - it lives at my daughter's house we bought it at Gumps just before it closed in 2018.

    Thanks for the challenge, Tracie. Here's my layout from 2014 about the night our dog got ahold of one of my Santa hats.
