December Daily 2010 | Day Seventeen

Welcome to Day Seventeen!

It's getting so close. Just eight days of documentation left for me and anyone else who's going through Christmas Day.

Katie Pertiet has a new brush set coming out next week (I think it's next week). It's called Text Clusters No.3 and it's a great holiday version. All those words on this page one photo are from one file.

Two stories for today's page: one is about playing pirates and the other is about Simon's excitement for the last day of school and getting to wear his Christmas PJ's. He is a big-time PJ fan.

Along the bottom is a piece of Teresa Collins pattern paper and a cute little mini flashcard from CariKraft.

SUPPLIES : Ali Edwards 2010 6×8 December Daily overlays; Hambly Chic Circles Transparent Overlay; The Girls Paperie Christmas Ribbon Trims; CariKraft Mini Signs of Christmas Flash Cards; Teresa Collins Noel Sheet Music Pattern Paper

I’d love to have you include a link to your DAY SEVENTEEN page here. Please link directly to your post or image on Flickr vs. your general blog link. Thank you! Also – don’t feel like you need to leave a comment!

    I'm sure this has probably already been asked but what size is the pic you print for the inside of the DD overlays, the pic of Simon catching the bus? I had to cut my pic down to size yesterday in Photoshop and remember the measurements werent an exact number, what size do you crop it at? Seems like it was something like 6.5"x3.? IDK! Thanks!

    Hi Ali, only one more week till the big day. I can't believe how fast it's going. I'm loving my album more and more each day. This is such a fun page for you today, love how it's two stories together. Such a sweet picture of Simon in his PJ"S. Sam was excited on Thursday for his PJ day at school, of course I forgot to get a picture. But I might still journal about it. How cool you are with that Pirate boat, the kids must have really loved that. We somtimes make a cardboard house for our kids to play in and decorate, harder now that they are so big though. Thank you again for these wonderful stories and ideas.

    The best surpriese for me this Christmas happened last night. My oldest daughter (21) who couldn't come home for Christmas surprised the heck out of us and walked in last night saying merry Christmas to us. We were sooooo happy to see her. She got the ok at her new job and they let her come home for 6 days, hooray!! So now my DD will get to have some pages about her in it. Wish I had a bigger book now, oh well it will be filled up that for sure. Hoping to catch up on the last few days tonight then will post them.
    Happy Weekend everyone!

    What an awesome photo of Simon going to the bus! My son gets picked up by his bus at 6:10- not too good for photos then!! I am sitting down this weekend to get started (yes, started) on my album- I have all the stuff, just not the photos printed yet. Things are crazy this time of year! Have a great weekend.

    I wish I had time to look at AND comment on each beautiful book that's being worked on. Ahhh, but my project time is fleeting. I still have several to complete, so the rush is on. My eldest and his wife (LOVE them!) arrive for 2 weeks tomorrow, so I'm aiming for some R&R time with them... We'll see!

    And with today's post, since I'm going the whole month, I'm now half way done! Woo hoooo!

    Ali~ Your page (and your album) are so inspiring! I love seeing how your album has progressed. The transformation from "blank" pages to your daily life this December has been incredible. I had set out to make my first ever December Daily this year, and was so excited at the prospect and all the possibilities, but here we are, December 18th, and I haven't even started. Oh well, maybe next year!

    I really love that picture of Simon walking towards the bus. You printed that at home on your HP? Wow. My HP always looks off to me on the colors.

    Love the black & white photo, too. Beautiful.

    Loving your pages Ali!! I am TRYING to keep up with everything but its been tough. I have the framework pages done, and I have been keeping track of what I want to write about for each day, and taking photos to go with BUT I have yet to put one whole day w/all three components together. I'm hoping I get some time to work on it soon. I sooo can't wait to see the finished project.

    I am finding it harder and harder to keep up. But I'm scared if I slip behind and play catch-up later I'll miss a lot of the important details in the stories that make the discipline of this project so rewarding. Thank you for the encouragement your faithful daily postings are, Ali. I seem to need the accountability.

    Hey there - I'll speak up as one of those people who is still working but not linking just yet. for me, it's gotten busy so I'm keeping a word document where I journal each day to capture what was going on and make references to the photos I want to use so when I actually have time to put it all together I know what I want and I won't forget the little details. I'll have Days 1-4 up this week and hopefully more will be done before christmas. But if not, I'm still ok with it and I'll link up when I actually finished, if that's still an option.
    Thanks for your inspiration Ali, I know with just the little bit I've gotten done that this is going to be one of our favorite family albums!
