December Daily 2009 : Day Ten, Day Eleven, Day Twelve, Day Thirteen

DAY TEN

10_DD_1 
On December 10th Simon and I had a little impromptu date to the movies. We saw Fantastic Mr. Fox and we really enjoyed it (I found myself smiling most of the way though). I printed the little movie image from online and adhered it to the page on the left (old felt paper from Art Warehouse) . On the right-hand page I cut a portion of the weather section from our local newspaper and adhered it on top of the original paper (see below). We had some really cold weather here last week and I wanted to make sure I got a record of that in here somewhere. I stitched the movie ticket to the side of the date label (I removed it and put it back on after adhering the newspaper and stitching the ticket) and also stitched the newspaper onto the main page.

SUPPLIES : Green glitter music pattern paper from Making Memories. Fa La La letterpress card from Paper Source. Small blue rub-ons from Jenni Bowlin.


Here's the original: 


Day10 
On the back of Day 10 I simply adhered and stitched a Starbucks cup-jacket onto the pattern paper (this was adhered before stitching on the reverse side).

DAY ELEVEN

11_DD_1

Day 11 is a page protector that has a Pink Paislee canvas tag sewn through (meaning I needed to use it as an overlay/page on it's own because the pocket was sewn closed). For the actual content I took a letter that Simon wrote to Santa on Anna's behalf and adhered it to a piece of kraft cardstock with a red ribbon along the edge (source unknown). 

Here's the letter:

DAY TWELVE

Day 12 features an enlarged photo on the left with some AE Holiday Outline Word Art down the side of the photo and on the right hand side is a pocket that includes a letter to Simon from my Mom, a sheet of lego information, and some instructions for felt ornaments.

I love these pocket pages for simple storage of stuff that has come into our house this month. 

Here's the original: 

Day12

SUPPLIES : Hambly overlay; Jenni Bowlin Red calendar 


DAY THIRTEEN

13_DD_1 
Simon decided that yesterday was the day he would write his own letter to Santa. To help Santa out we printed a photo from the internet to make sure he brings the "right" one.

Here's a look at the inside piece with a Jenni Bowlin ticket and rub ons stapled to the top:

The right side includes American Crafts Button Nose pattern paper surrounding his letter & a Santa card from CariKraft

    I loved Simon's letter to Santa on Anna's behalf. Someday Anna will know how lucky she is to have such a wonderful older brother. God bless!

    Ahhhhhhh....cold, it's all in the mind. Yesterday's actual high in North Dakota was -1 with a low of -10, with windchills in the -40 range. Which makes the current 2 degrees with a windchill of -14 seem almost nice! Come March the college kids will be wearing shorts when the mercury hits the mid 30's. Have I mentioned ... You have to really LOVE North Dakota to live here by choice...and we do!

    I love the letters from Simon for Anna and for himself. And that picture of them is such a winner. You can just see how much they care about each other. I hope they stay that way all through the years. I'm enjoying seeing all of your December Daily pages. I"m doing mine but am slow about it. I have so much else going on.

    When we travel I try to find the local paper and include the weather in the travel book. I love the idea as it includes the weather and local flair :)

    Ali, do you use Archivers spray on things like the newspaper and other things?

    Sometimes I do, most of the time I don't. If they are touching a photo then I am more likely to do it - otherwise I just adhere and go :).

    I am completely inspired! Love the blog. Also feeling overwhelmed and life is too short to do everything I want to do. Love living vicariously through your words and pictures.
    Merry Christmas!

    Ali, Love all the pictures and ideas you are presenting with your xmas album. Thank you. I do have to say, I did get the biggest chuckle (even though I love the idea) when I saw your newspaper cut out of the five day forecast. They had very cold listed for a day that it was going to be 27 for a high and 17 for a low. We are having -2 tonight and we do not even get the luxury of being told very cold. : ) Guess people up here are used to the cold..unlike me. But still, it was very comical for me to see.
    Thanks again for taking the time so show us some inventive ideas to try.
