December Daily ~ days 1-5

Ok, it's still bugging me that my daughter is more ahead on her December Daily than I am! hehe I'm catching up though. Normally I would add photos to my album on a daily or semi-daily basis. That makes it much easier to keep up with. But as I've already said, I'm a bit behind this year. Never fear, I'll be caught up by this weekend!

So here's the cover...

I used a 6x6 American Crafts album that has the chipboard covers w/the red spine. I'm hoping to use these albums every year. Won't that look pretty on a bookshelf?? Anyway, I cut circles with Making Memories paper, added some AC shiny red thickers (looove those) and some lace along the side. I could've painted the cover but I really like the look of raw chipboard. BTW, I used a hot glue gun to keep that lace in place. It's not going anywhere! Oh, and I used some Martha Stewart decoupage glue on the cover so those cute little circles don't start peeling off. I've said it before, my albums get looked at....a lot. So I try to make them a bit durable. Oh, those thickers are hot glue gunned on, too :)

Day 1 ~ there's gingy:) Used a Ali Edwards holiday word art to the photo along with some ribbon & Fiskars border punch.

On the backside, a journaling card from Elle's Studio. Day 2 ~ Jenni Bowlin bingo card, trees cut from Making Memories paper, red rick rack & a Heidi Swapp crystal circle.

On the backside, another one of those Elle's Studio journaling cards & AE holiday word art.

Day 3, Ali Edwards December overlays, buttons & rick rack.

On the backside, photobooth frames with some ribbon.

Day 4, I used one of the page protectors that came with the album and created a photo collage.

On the backside, the journaling & accents.

The next page is actually a 3rd page of Day 4 because I had more photos to include.

Day 5 ~ I only made one page for this day because it was a lazy Saturday at home! I added some Christmas cut ups to the photo.

It looks great Michelle! You are further ahead than me this year. I'm getting worried that the December Daily is going to end up being put together in january. At least I'm still taking photos and blogging it so I have it all written down. (at least that is my justification!!LOL)
