December Daily : Days 23, 24, and 25


So happy to be finishing this up. It's a project that I definitely look forward to but man it is tough to finish up during those last few days leading up to Christmas.

In looking through the entire album for this year, one of the things I really love is that it is simple and the emphasis is really on the photos and the words. The more time goes by the more I really find that to be what I want to see most. Sometimes it is so easy to get swept up in all the extras (because there are so many cool things to use) but what I really care about are the pictures and the story.

I know that I talk about the simplicity of words and photos often, partly it is a reminder to myself and partly because I just get so excited about it.

Day Twenty-Three:

Day Twenty-Four:




I love this photo of Chris, his Dad, and Simon - probably my favorite of the season. Patterned paper is Love, Elsie from 2007. Foam stickers from American Crafts.

A simple photo collage. I think I will also do a layout with photos from Christmas Day.
