Deb's Days 17 - 22

DEC 17th......I've been having so much fun playing with my December Daily that I had such a mess on my craft table and it was time to tidy it up a bit.   I used a 4x6 photo of the "mess" which covered the printing on the back of some Prima packaging perfectly.  I typed my journaling onto the photo before I printed it so all that was needed was a title, the date and just a little embellishment....super easy.

DEC 18....Then on the other side,  I just needed to cover the top section with some patterned paper.   Each year I seem to get one particular Christmas carol or song stuck in my head.  This year "Jingle Bell Rock" is the one........it just goes over and over in my head. 

DEC 19.............A "tag" page..........some lace stapled to the top and a butterfly on both sides, glittered on the front but not on the back.

and over on the back.............

DEC 20.........I have been so inspired by all these little shaker pages I've been seeing and Bec's inclusion of some cute little drawings into her December Daily,  I decided to combine the two using a 5x7 plastic sleeve......some sequins in a sewn pocket along the bottom and a stamped title down the side bits.....and some special drawings from the grandchildren.     (I just love those surprised looks on the faces when they spot the presents under the tree lol)


CHRISTMAS ART.........I've sewn the bows on the outside of the protector on both sides.  By the way, that is a drawing of a present by my littlest grand-daughter in case you couldn't recognize it.

DEC 21st.........Wrapping of some presents...........I "gift wrapped" the photo/s with some ribbon. 

DEC 22nd............This is the reverse side of the patterned paper from the 21st and I loved it but it needed some white paint over it to tone it down.  As my hidden journaling card was only fairly short, I added glue to the sides of the photo and the bottom and then again about 3/4 of the way down the photo,so that the tag wouldn't fall to far down behind the photo.
