Merry Christmas

I have definitely been getting into the Christmas spirit around here.  Our tree has been decorated for weeks, gifts are purchased and mostly wrapped, and I've been working on this little upcycled Christmas scrapbook / smashbook, December Daily type book.
I've taken an old children's Christmas classic, Santa Claus is Coming to Town and made all new pages for the inside.  Actually, I kept a couple of the pages from the book to use as it adds a charm I kind of like.
I like using old lace on the sides of the pages and then lots of journaling spots and photo mounts to jot down those special memories.
I also love these fun altered art images from various Etsy shops and places on the internet. 
I also like making some of the pages smaller than the outer pages as it gives it a little more interest.
There are some little tags in the pocket here, which I think make great "secret" journaling spots.
I also love making these side pockets that are great for putting little cards and treasures in.
