December Daily™ 2012 | Day Eight

Had a little gathering of friends here last night - so fun to be celebrate the season with laughter and friendship.

Quick note to let you know that my 2013 One Little Word workshop is now open for registration. I'm mixing it up this year with new monthly creative prompts (+ a few that are the same as 2011 and 2012) to help us all make our words more visible in our lives. More information and registration available here.

Here's a look at my spread for Day Eight:

I stared off knowing I wanted to use three photos and that I'd be working with the back of the enlarged photo I included for Day Seven.

I decided to use one behind a 4x6 Overlay, one would be printed the same size as the background from Day Seven and the third would be the same height but a smaller width and I would score it to be able to open like a flap.

As I was looking through stuff I collected yesterday I saw the Starbucks wrap and thought that would make a cool addition to the shorter photo (I think I've included one of these just about every year). I stitched it to the photo using silver thread.

Inside the flap I included some pattern paper from the December Daily™ kit + a cork star (from Close To My Heart) stitched with the same silver thread.

For the second page of the spread I added a 4x6 overlay on top of a photo and added my journaling before printing.

Inside the album.

I really like how this one turned out - especially the combination of one side in a page protector and the other outside.
