Non Australian Christmas wishes ...

I've done very little non December Daily or Journal Your Christmas scrapbooking this month - in fact I've been a very bad blogger all round.  It will be on my New Year's resolution to do better in 2012.

I have however, put together a layout for ARTastic where this pretty little painting "A blessing of Christmas" by Thomas Kinkade of a wintry snow scene got me to thinking about how irrelevant I find Christmas cards we receive each year with these types of depictions are to us in Australia where our Christmas' are usually hot and summery.

Added criteria was to include a snowman, Christmas tree and the word "Christmas" in the title.

Love this funny layout! I live where it’s cold and snowy at Christmas time so I found it amusing to read your journaling! Thanks for playing along at ARTastic!
