December Daily 2010 | Day Nine

Welcome to Day Nine!

How's it going? Still hanging in there?

I felt a bit of creative fatigue myself today and then got over it once I started playing with these little photos.

Photos today (except the enlargement) are from my Fujifilm INSTAX MINI 7S Camera. I first read about this on Elsie's blog. I brought it along with me to Greece and took a bunch of photos and totally loved it as a fun toy camera. I've been playing with it again here over the last couple of days capturing holiday decor.

For this first page I just adhere three of them along the bottom - with the middle photo overlapping the other two. Along the bottom I added a typewriter-typed journaling strip.

The middle transparent page is a 8.5x11 page-protector that's been cut down to four pockets (and new holes punched). When I created my foundation pages it included the daily number and the two stars. In the one empty pocket I added a mini photo of Anna and a "sweet anna-girl" label." After slipping it into the page protector I stitched it on my machine with just a bit of yellow thread.

Behind the photo of Anna I slipped in a little lego building paper that had come in Simon's advent box today.

Page two includes six mini photos, typed labels, and a bit of very cool vintage wallpaper from Papier Valise (click on Paper and then look for Vintage Wall Paper: Holiday Colors Pack).

My typewriter got a workout making the little labels.
