December Daily Days 1-5

Hi Everyone! Today I am sharing the first 5 days in my December Daily. I am having so much fun with this project this year..definitely my favorite one to date. This is my fourth time doing a December Daily and feel like I have found my stride this year. I am Using Ali Edwards main kit as well as some past kits and pieces from Studio Calico's Keystone Collection. So here are my first 5 days:

Day 1:

This is the first year I have embellished the inside cover of my album and I love it! I use Ali's silkscreens and paint, a chipboard tree from a past kit and a gold chipboard heart.

Day 2:

On the 2nd my daughter and I went to see the Nutcracker in Boston. For the first part of Day 2 I used a mailer that I received about the Nutcracker and found a photo online of one of my favorite scenes from the ballet. On the second part I print a 6x8 photo of my daughter in front of the sign and a photo of the pretty lights in Boston Common. I cut the "twinkle" on my Silhouette. It is a digital element from Ali's shop.

Day 3:
I kept Day 3 pretty simple. I went to see "Its A Wonderful Life" the musical with my mom and sisters.

Day 4:

Day 4 was gingerbread house day! I made a flip up page by cutting down two of the Simple Stories Snap flip up 4x6 page protectors and fusing them with my fuse tool. I slip in a piece of the gingerbread house box from Trader Joes.

Day 5:

Our first snow day and probably my favorite page in the album so far. We didn't have any snow last I type this we are having our 3rd snowstorm this month! The "winter wonderland" is an older digital element from Ali's shop. Loving the large photo spread across two pages.

Hoping to have some good lighting tomorrow to photo graph the next few pages tomorrow! Thanks for stopping by!

    Hello !
    I'm writting a column about the Book Of Me in the french magazine called "Passion scrapbooking".
    The subject of the article for the issue 86 is about leisure activities (activities when you are not working, passions, children’s games...).
    I wish to show some of your layouts within this article.
    (seen here :
    Would you agree with that ?
    If yes, could you please send me as soon as possible a high resolution photo of it ?
    Of course, your name or pen name if you want will appear next to the image, and the address of your blog will be in the address book.
    Thank you in advance for your quick answer, even if it is negative, so that I can get organized (I have to give my paper very soon).
