Deb's Days 23- 26

Well here we are into our brand new year........2014.......Happy New Year everyone.  

I'm sharing with you today, my final pages for my December Daily.  Each year I finish my December Daily on Boxing Day the 26th and at the start of this December Daily I had intentions of maybe taking it right through December BUT I have stuck to what I have done in previous years.

DEC 23.......I have found all that Prima packaging I have be stashing away has come in very handy for my December Daily. I was wondering if I would ever use it and I still have plenty left over and thought perhaps I could have done my whole album with it.......hmmm there's a thought for next year. lol.   I've pretty much covered the whole of the background with patterned paper and photos.  Some last minute Christmas shopping, wrapping and popping the pressies under the tree. 

DEC 24..........and on the flip side........I took a bit of the colour out of the photos before printing them......still not sure if I like it though. 

DEC 25.........I have started the 25th with sort of a title page........I have been just busting to use this little glitter pocket from HERE (thanks Mandy).  I knew I just had to have a pastel one for my December Daily.  I've used a 5x7 plastic sleeve again and sewn it to include the title down the bottom, some side pockets and my little glitter pocket, to which I've added a star and a tie.
and then flip it over.......I've added some of the "confetti" that was sprinkled on the Christmas table into the side pockets.

after that title page comes a small journaling page (more decorated packaging)  to write about our day..........

and  then some Christmas Day photos on the next page...............I love the photo I took of the grandkids kite so decided to use the lovely blue sky space to add a title to the photo before printing it.

I've cut the centre row of small pockets from a 12x12 divided sleeve and sewn them to the page.  If you concertina them up and press along the folds, they will sort of sit reasonably well but do need something to hold them in place. Some lace came in handy to hide the stitching and I found a larger paper clip with a bright flower attached so a lick of paint to make a pastel flower and a bit of sparkle with some stickles and it worked a treat.

Under the plastic pockets I stuck a photo down on the background.  I have photos in both sides of the pockets.

DEC 26..........and with Christmas Day over for another year.........Boxing Day was all about eating the leftovers..........I'm sure if I had continued on past the 26th,  the pages would still be about the leftovers lol.    A negative strip from where I had cut out the circles for my dates came in handy to pop over the photos and frame them.

So I have now completed all my pages for my December Daily 2013.  All that is left for me to do now is put them in my covers and put on some finishing touches which I will share with you later.

How are you going with your December Daily's? ..............We'd love to see them.
