Welcome to December Daily® 2015 | Days 23-26.
I hope you had a lovely holiday with your family and friends! Today I'm sharing the last few days of my album and wrapping up December Daily® for 2015 - I've included a video walk-through below as well. Thank you so much for sharing your stories this past month. I wish you all the best for 2016 and beyond.
Also just a heads up that there are a couple days left to join my One Little Word® workshop at the early bird price of $26 (after 12/31 it will be $31).
First up, Day 23:
On the 23rd we made the trek to the mall to visit Santa.
I included the official photo in the album (behind the stamped journaling from Day 22) by simply punching holes to match the rings. I also included the gold circle transparency page within Day 23.
To tell my story I used the "today" card from the Main Kit and simply jotted down a few memories of the day related to Simon and Anna.
Here's a look at Day 24:
Christmas Eve around here included time spent with just my kids in the morning and then Aaron and his kids came over for dinner in the evening.
For this spread I loved including a morning photo + an evening photo. The "good times" card gives the basic details and then I created a flip-up using the gold-foil Jasmine Jones "together" card to write out a bit more of the story.
I used the gold washi from the Main Kit and one of the journal cards from the Jasmine Jones kit with a green phrase sticker on top of the branch. Simple and easy to create a home for additional journaling.
Here's a look at Day 25:
For Christmas Day I ended up wanting to use four photos. One of Simon, one of Anna, one of Anna and me playing video games, and one of the kids by the tree in the morning.
To accommodate the additional photo I simply added it into the album and used the other side as a home for a journal card + my journaling for the day. I added the "25" badge on top of the seam where the two cards meet.
On the back of the journal card combo I included the other photo of Anna and me playing Super Mario Bros. I also included the enlarged 6x8 photo of the kids in front of the tree. On top of that photo I added some journaling and a Silhouette cut made using word art from the Storytelling With December Daily® class.
Love the photo focus of this day.
This year I also included a Day 26 because I traveled with Aaron and his kids to celebrate with his family in Portland:
Traditionally I've ended this album on December 25th. With a different schedule this year it made sense for me to include the story of Christmas with Aaron's family and I'm so happy I did as it was really fun to get to experience their Christmas traditions.
I had trimmed this Santa that Anna colored earlier this month to include at some point - today seemed like a good day. In addition I included a couple of photos from Aaron's parents + journaling about that adventure.
I ended the album with a photo of snow falling at Aaron's parents house and their tree.
