Star of night for AJJ

A digital journal page for Valerie's theme over at
which is Light and darkness.

For many years this hand made ceramic  Nativity is displayed  at Christmas time
 in my sitting room.
Very plain and faces with no features, but it means a lot and is special to my family.
One year we added straw for it to stand on, that didn't last for very long and we went back to plain, to let the story speak for itself..

I took a few photos and used one of them
 for my page.[ click photo to see a larger picture]

Thank you for calling in to see me today, you are very welcome
 and your comments are always appreciated.
Digital additions from
Mischief Circus kits 
and my own backgrounds.


  1. LOve your beautiful nativity figures, and the wonderful page you have made with them. I think I will now be singing 'We three kings....' for the rest of the evening! Thanks for making another lovely journal page for AJJ, much appreciated. Hugs, Valerie

  2. Your nativity looks beautiful and a great idea to use it for the digital page! It turned out lovely!

  3. That's a really beautiful Nativity - the simplicity and the gentleness of the figures captures something really special. I love how you've converted that into your digital page, and found a different medium in which to express that moment of wonder.

  4. How wonderful Yvonne to use this wonderful nativity scene in your page

  5. It always means something special when you can use your own photos in your digital art. It's even MORE special when the photo has special meaning. What a lovely journal page, and a beautiful nativity scene, too. It has such special meaning to you, and that's the way it should be.

  6. I forgot to mention that I really like your latest blog header.

  9. A fabulous design and a page that is so very personal at this special time of the year, love it xxx

  10. Such a beautiful page Yvonne and your navtivity is adorable! I love this song as it brings very happy childhood memories flooding back to me :-). I played the symbols to it at school in our local church and everytime the STAR word was sung in the chorus I had to bang the symbols together. I made such a crash I think the whole village could hear me ... lol, I am sure you can imagine the happiness I felt and the noise I made ... so funny now I look back on it. Thanks for the memories and making me smile :-). Wishing you a Happy Friday and Weekend! J :-)
