December Daily™ 2013 | Day Eight


Welcome to December Daily™ 2013 | Day Eight.

The snowfall that came down last Thursday night is still here which is so crazy for us. On the rare occasions we have snow it's usually gone within a day or two. This year the temperatures have been so low (like -9 Fahrenheit) that there has been almost no melting of the snow.

That means that school will likely be closed for both kids on Monday. Fun for them, challenging for parents who need to get to work (whether at home or out of the house).

Thankful for a warm house, thankful for a fireplace, thankful for food in the fridge, thankful for separate rooms for the kids when they need to be away from each other (!!!), thankful for bringing out my big camera and remembering to use it.

Here's a look at Day Eight:


This one is a two-page spread + a second pocket page that I cut in half and added on top of the second page to accommodate 4x6 photos of their letters (you can see this better below).

The star transparency and the "celebrate" words are from Websters Pages. The Santa is chipboard from Teresa Collins.


I added Hello Santa word art from my Hello Christmas digital set to the photo of them sitting at the table working on their letters.


I used red-line tape to actually stick the two page protectors together - one strip close to the outside edge and one strip close to the seam of the pocket. Can't really even tell it's there. The reason I chose to do that was because without it secured to the other page it was sliding around too much and this secured it in place.


Turning the page reveals two more 3x4 pockets, including the 3x4 journal card for telling today's story.


I added an index tab to the top of the cut page protector and slipped the "dear santa" (from pattern paper in the Studio Calico kit) inside.
