December Daily™ 2011 | Day Twenty

Welcome to December Daily™ 2011 | Day Twenty.

Yesterday when I found a little window of time to work on my page I took a good look around at my piles and looked specifically for something I could use in my album. I didn't have to look far or deep:

Anna's been coloring and drawing up a storm the last few days so it wasn't too hard to find a couple things to use as the main content for our Day 20.

First up, a lovely purple Christmas tree:

Love it.

Day 20 has a divided page protector insert:

I added two different kinds of small stars (old book paper punched stars and Jenni Bowlin chipboard stars), an ornament from the Echo Park chipboard set, and a piece of a dot-to-dot from Simon (he's never been much of a coloring-kid but man he loves dot to dot).

And the second page:

This was also a drawing that Anna did - the first one I've seen that are a bunch of horizontal lines (you know I loved that). It was perfect for a bit of journaling. I also added some of those American Crafts foil letter stickers as a title.

Here's a look at Day 20 in the album:

    Hi Ali,
    I was getting down on myself this year for not being able to get started on my December Daily album. I tried to get pictures everyday, but then I wasn't at home in MI, I was away in TX helping my daughter recoop from surgery, so I was very busy. ow I am home (on the 19th) and have missed so much of the month. But then I thought... why does it have to be December for this year? Why couldn't I do a January album and incorporate some of December into it. Hmm??? Why not! Thank you so much Ali for putting so many different idea's into all of our noggins (heads). Merry Christmas!

    I love the lines. I need to nab my three year old's masterful lines to use too. Thanks for the inspiration.

    Love the idea of the lines for journaling - my kids used to do drawings like that - I wonder if I still have some somewhere. Love the purple Christmas tree too - I love it when they go to town like that.

    Anna is 2.5 and already gets the concept of coloring in the lines, so to speak. I'm impressed!

    Oh so that you incorporate kids art. Your kids are going to LOVE this even more when they are older and see these albums. Your creativity is SO awesome!!!

    I can't wait for my 1 year old to start coloring and scribbling. Definitely looking forward to his first artwork in my Project Life album for 2012! I put those chunky Crayola crayons in his stocking so we'll see if he gets it. :)

    Hey! When she colored the ornaments, it looks like she made them into stars! ... Let's pretend. She's she helping with the them of your album. Purple stars. Gotta love it.

    I think she likes to be held and petted some times,
    but being the pet of a 10 year old could make
    anyone grumpy. Analyzing that data is easy enough through Facebook, fortunately.
