December Daily 2009 : Day One

01_DecemberDaily2009

WELCOME TO DECEMBER DAILY 2009

Here's to keeping it simple: a photo, a few words, and a mini flash card from Kari Craft all tucked into the pocket of my album.

I may add something from later today on the back of this photo or I will use the back as part of Day Two. I am thinking about stitching along the top after I make something for the back.

SUPPLIES : 
25 Days of December Photo Overlays (made it larger and moved the line in Photoshop); Magic Flash Card from Kari Craft; Garamond

Here's what the page looked like before adding the content:

This post is part of a series documenting the month of December 2009. You find out more information and view all the completed pages of my album here

SCRAPBOOKING FOR GOOD : I recently donated signed copies of my books Life Artist, A Designer's Eye for Scrapbooking 2, Sharing Your Story, and an original canvas from my Life Artist book to Becca Sutton who is raising money for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. These items are all available for bidding through an auction she is hosting here.

    Love the photo... My son was doing the same thing this morning. He has been dying to open the advent calendar to get the little lego man out!

    Is it wrong that I was just as excited as my son (4 1/2) was to open Door #1? I managed to keep the whole thing a secret for the last 1 1/2 months.

    I'm so stoked to begin the picture taking today! I just got the last page completed the day before yesterday.
    I wish there was some place we could all put our pictures from our December Dailies. It would be fun to see what everyone is doing!
    Happy December 1!

    Hey Bethany - you can always just use your blog as a way to document the month + create later (or not). You can do it!!!!

    Nice start :)
    You print all those photos by yourself? Doesn't the color fade after time? That's always happening to my pictures :/

    Nice! You are amazing:) Ali, I was wondering if you have considered creating a December Daily template for a Shutterfly digital album? Or maybe you have already and I've been living under a rock?
