I loved the clean lines of Carol's pages from last year and used her fabulous design as a springboard. Cathy Zielske offered some great journal block templates on her blog that fit perfectly with her Merry Hipmas collection of journal cards and solves my problem of struggling to get the leading right!

This photo was actually from last year, but I think that the template will work well and I am going to try to keep each page simple, with just a few goodies. Probably my biggest challenge will be to find photos that fit as I usually end up with many more photos in landscape than in portrait.
