Jane's Days 29 - 31

Day 29

I'm impressed that I'm still going and keeping up to date, but if I'm honest the energy is beginning to flag and I'm so pleased I prepped so much in advance. A simple beginning to today's page ....

... that got jazzed up with a die cut tree, digi word strips, a snowflake and sparkles.

And then some word stickers and more gems once the journalling was written.

One of my favourite photos from the season, so I just added an ep digi banner and kept it simple.

Day 30

Another prepared ahead starter page using that gorgeous woodgrain paper from Simple Stories Bloom & Grow collection.

As this was a bit of a chill out, relaxing sort of day I chose a coffee cup and a cupcake sticker placing them on top of my journal card. I'm more than happy to cover over earlier bits like this if they just don't seem to fit the page any more. 

I used alphas to make an appropriate sentiment and stamped the little birds to create a border down the number card strip and linked it to the journal card with one more bird.

I used quite a few digi elements and brushes on my photo today, some Katie Pertiet, some Ali Edwards and the smudge behind the title strip is a freebie included in a Jessica Sprague workshop. And can I just say here that just about everything I know about using Photoshop is as a result of Jessica Sprague classes - can't recommend her highly enough!

Day 31

The last day of my album today and also the last day of a bonus four extra days with my Isle of Man grandsons - all due to their car break down.

Still keeping things very simple as I was wanting to the make the most of this last day with my grandsons. So I simply added a photo, a quote strip and some trios of enamel dots.

The digi elements today are from Katie Pertiet and ep and the photos reveal some very full mouths!

So now I'm all done for 2016 and my album is bulging at the seams. How about you?

PS: Remember!
We'd love you to share all your process and December Daily journey with us
