December Daily® Days 19-25

After watching some of Storytelling with Project Life, my mojo kicked in.  I decided that finishing December Daily® needed to happen!

I knew I wanted to include Christmas cards in the book  So, I took a 12-up 6 x 8 page and cut portions of cards into 2 x 2 squares. I used two of the squares for the date and a quick journal.

Day 20 is more like a "Day in the Life" type of spread.  Here's what happens at this time of year.

Days 21 and 22 are quick 4-up 6 x 8 pages.  I added some Snapchat fun and a couple word stickers, with a star sticker as well to accent closing on our house!  Day 22 is, of course, dedicated to the Christmas party.

For Day 23, I included some newer wrapping paper for this year, a favorite funny meme, and I included a 6 x 8 page rather than a page protector.  The right side was part of the pre-made portion of my album.

I really liked the flipside of the "Joy" page, so I added some words from the ephemera kit from Simple Stories that I have been using throughout.  For Christmas Eve, I decided to use some 4 x 4 photos, and the page protector with two 4 x 4s and a 2 x 8 worked great.  I included traditional "in front of the tree" photos from Christmas Eve,

For the flipside of Christmas Eve, I used a strip that I had pre-made for the 2 x 8 part.  For Day 25, I decided to have a 4 x 6 journal card to wrap up the album.  I used two 4 x 6 collages to highlight different gifts of the day,

The tree is from last year's December Daily kit.  The letter stickers are Thickers from Dear Lizzy.  They have light little polka dots on them.

The final 6 x 8 is of my son before we opened gifts Christmas morning.  He looked so joyful.  It's definitely one of my favorite Christmas photos.

And there you have it.  Finis.
