December Daily - Day 1 and Day 2

Good morning ladies!  First off, I just wanted to say that I got some of the happiest of happy mail this past weekend and I cannot wait to share it with you!  Unfortunately, I have to be patient, and so do you.  But I am telling you, I had to pick myself up off the floor after it came!  I can hardly wait to spill the beans.

Oy!  I am starting to wonder how I am ever going to keep up with all the goings on!   The first few days of December have been super super busy.  And some of it even got cancelled. (for which I may be quite grateful)

As I work on the actual daily pages for my DD, I am trying to keep at the forefront of my mind the idea of story and simplicity.  This creative cat is usually super into the details, but if I try to accomplish that on this project I know I'll never have a complete album.  Soooo, I'm trying to be very straight-forward and focus on the photos and the story.

Take a peek and let me know if you think I have managed it.

The Intro page is all about my purpose.  I think I'd like to read it daily in order to keep myself focused in the right direction.  That would have to help wouldn't it?  This pages uses stash along with the Jenni Bowlin November Paper Crafting kit, Close To My Heart Letter stamps and some goodies from my stash.  And of course, my typewriter.



Day 1 -- note the wood veneer on the bottom of this page. I love working with this stuff, you can punch it because it is so thin.  Misted with Studio Calico Classic Calico Mister Huey.  I'm thinking I may try to make some Silhouette cut letters with it along the way.



More wood veneer and some items from the SC Ali Edwards DD kit.



Day 2  here is the full spread as it looks together.  I think I'll photograph it this way from now on and then include shots of the individual pages.







Tomorrow I'll be working on Day 3 and 4!  I'm loving the Ali Edwards overlays for the large photo. And did you see the Elle's Studio tags?  Dug those out of my journaling drawer with glee! I'll be using more of those for certain.

Once again, I'm finding so many fun things in my stash!

Hope your day is a good one.  I have a trip to the eye doctor, pulling out my Christmas decor and completing some DD pages on my agenda today, among other things.
