Tracey's Day 25 continued and 30



I'm so Happy to say my December Daily is done!  Today I am continuing with pages for day 25. I also have a page for Day 30. 


Day 25 continued
 I created a double page using pattern paper as a border. Christmas day was very warm we decided to move the table tennis game into the family room and enjoy  playing, keeping cool with our recently installed air conditioning. These page show the games we played. I printed the journalling out on the computer....I don't like my handwritting , so if I didn't print it out I would use my type writer.



I printed the photos small so I could fit a few to a page. Another double page, fun pattern paper and washi tape.


On the first page my journalling reads - Family photos....the best we could do! Oh it was so hard getting a good photo! Blurry, someones eyes were shut or no one was looking at the camera!
For the  first page I printed out a collage of all the not so good photos. On the second page my husband eyes are shut.....but it was the best one of everyone. More washi tape , heart shape die cuts, Merry Christmas and the stars are puffy stickers, lots of gold colour shine. Every page edge is inked in gold too.



Not a lot happened between the 25th and 30th....
....actually I was busy trying to keep on track with this album!

My parents live 3 hours away, so we had our Christmas day with them on the 30th....I documented that with a single family photo.
I really liked the verse on this page.......We received a Christmas card from a real estate agent , the verse was on it. I kept it because I didn't want to forget it , so I cut it up and added it to the final page! Nothing like a little recycling!  I've added an envelope ....I thinking I'm going to use it for recipes I made for Christmas this year.



For the final page, I die cut a Christmas tree using my cricut.



Done!



I'm Happy with how my First December Daily turned out.

  2. I had to giggle at the getting a photo that wasn't blurred or eyes shut etc... we can relate to that with NOTORIOUS 'eye-shutters' in our family! LOL. Love the hearts to highlight photos and the diecut tree at the end is a gorgeous way to finish too!
