December Daily 2009 : Days Four, Five, & Six

One of my observations this year is that life seems to be just a tad-bit busier than in the past. Adding another little person into the mix makes things more full, more wonderful, and more complicated all in the same instant. It is so, so fun to see her face in this album. 



Here's a scan: 

SUPPLIES : AE Handdrawn Holiday Word Art; Prima Glittered Star Vine (I just pulled them off and stapled them to the top of the page protector); Fiskars Scallop Border Punch

Here's what I did on the back: 


I adhered a sheet from a magazine (I think it was Martha) to the back of the photo. On top of the santas I included a handwritten memory of how when I was a kid during December when we would drive around at night I always looked out the window up in the sky to see if I could see Santa. Even when I knew...

Here's the before shot: 




AE 25 Days of December Overlay; K&Company Gold Embossed Pattern Paper (I found this at Michael's a few months ago); Gold foil from a Jenni Bowlin kit

Day Five pretty much talks about how I worked all day on Saturday and how much I am looking forward to transforming our home for the holidays. 

Here's the original: 




Chris just came in here and looked at this photo and said, "this is so them."

For the main page I adhered the large photo onto the tabbed kraft page (see the "before" image below) and used a craft knife to trim the excess along the edge. Before printing the enlarged photo I added the word art and cut ups and after printing I added the white line, the #6, and one more word sticker. 

The strip of photos on the opposite page was gathered together in Photoshop using Katie's Photobooth Frames

Here's a close-up on the second page:

How's it going? Did you play catch-up this weekend? Enjoying the process?
