December Daily: Days 1 - 13

hot on the heels of my Week in the Life completion (well, there was an overlap if the truth be told, but i tried to be very disciplined and finish one project before starting another!) comes December Daily.

again, i ordered ali's kit online, and we were treated to TWICE the number of patterned papers AND free international shipping.

just because.  yay.

thanks ali 




so here's my title page
nice and simple


'my reason why' page not yet done

i also bought several of ali's digital templates and have had a lot of fun with them


while there's no right or wrong way to approach this project, my december daily is more of a december 'diary' - in that i like the album to reflect what happened every day of december, rather than it being totally christmas or holiday focussed.

looking back on last year's DD, i love that i included a diary entry every day because it's detail i would never remember otherwise. 

i also love the opportunity to focus on one particular story as well, as i did on dec 2nd






i love adhering 2 photos back to back and having them 'float' in the album






the DD kit is so comprehensive with tonnes of embellishments


including these giant gold letters, AND the transparency pages which i cut in half vertically to use as dividers


see that troll?

it's a CAKE!!!
(which i did NOT make i hasten to add)


journalling yet to be added to day 12


borrowed another idea from ali and used the white of the bridge in the photo to add journalling


i also bought some good quality printer paper and have printed the journalling pages myself


i'm SO enjoying this project and can't wait to share the rest with you

happy december daily!
