December Daily™ 2012 | Day Sixteen + Day Seventeen

Combining Days Sixteen and Seventeen today for a couple reasons:

(1) I was a day behind. Hello December.

(2) I used a Martha Stewart Crafts Punch All Over the Page Starry Sky Punch with two journal card pages back to back and it made sense to show it all together.

Here's Day Sixteen:

Always have to include something about the Advent Calendars - a much loved tradition in our house. This year we have the Star Wars Lego calendar and the Playmobile Princess Wedding set.

Vellum arrows and the tabbed piece of paper (pattern was on the other side) are from the Studio Calico December Daily™ kit. Letter stickers are from Crate Paper.

And you can guarantee that I'm pretty happy that my Paperwhites are close to blooming.

One of my recent purchases is this Martha Stewart Crafts Punch All Over the Page Starry Sky Punch. I wanted to use it in this project and I wanted to use it to create a see-through section.

The solution was to line up two 4x6 journal cards back to back and punch through them. Love it. Here's the front side:

And the back side. I didn't adhere these two cards together, just punched them at the same time to get the correct location.

Here's Day Seventeen:

This quotation was just too darn funny to pass up.

"Celebrate This" white glitter banner is from KI Memories.

This is what she was singing on the way to school. I added the text in Photoshop before printing. That great sequin star is from Heidi Swapp.

Here's a link of all my days so far for 2012:

    My girls have made up a song over the years that starts out "Deck the halls with newborn babies..." It gets weirder and weirder as the song goes on. Ha.

    That is sooo precious! I think that although I will be putting together my Dec. Daily in the New Year this will be the best year yet. Doing Project Life this year has really helped me become a better story teller. Just last night my daughter was singing Frosty and came out with the line "with a corn cob pipe and a BOOGIE nose". My husband burst out laughing and corrected her, but she insisted that it was a Boogie nose, not a button nose. Immediately, I thought back to this post of Anna & how she sang Deck the Halls.
