December Daily® 2017 | Day 22

Welcome to December Daily® 2017 | Day 22. 

Today's story is about an outing that Anna and I took to Target and a few other spots to pick up a few more things and our noodle lunch. Loved the opportunity to go big with a couple photos, including one that captures Anna and I in the checkout line at Target. So fun. 

I want to take this opportunity to say a very big thank you for adventuring with me this December. I love the community that has built up around this project - it makes the season even more enjoyable. I'll be taking the next few days off to enjoy Christmas with my family and will be back after Christmas to share my last three stories. I wish you a very wonderful holiday!

Here's a look at the Foundation Pages at this point originally (same as yesterday): 

Here's how my Day 22 story ended up being told in my album: 

For my story today I include two enlarged photos of our outing to Target and noodle lunch. I used one of the gold foil journaling tags to hold the actual writing of the story. 

I'm always on the lookout for opportunities to take photos of myself taking photos. Going through the self-checkout at Target is a fun opportunity to take one of these kinds of shots. 

For the day numbers today I used the December Daily® Large Sticker Number Sheet (comes with 2 sheets) paired with a couple chipboard pieces from the Main Kit and the Chipboard Bundle. 

On the back of the journaling tag I added a wood veneer circle and a chipboard circle. On the second photo enlargement I added chipboard number circles and identifies which bowl of noodles belonged to which person. 

Here's a look at the pages outside the album:

    Day 23 is just about at an end here in Australia (we are a day ahead of the USA). For the first time ever I am up to date with my December Daily album. This is an amazing feat for me. There are a number of UFOs sitting on the shelf. I don't know what finally inspired me to keep it going this year, but I do know that many years of watching you assemble your albums, Ali, has made me try time and again. Despite some very obvious scrap lifting (eg Anna's hands split 6x8 was too good not to copy), I think I may finally have moved (my OLW for 2018) into my own style at last. I keep flipping back through my album and I am happy with every day's efforts. We leave home tomorrow and will spend the next few days away so I won't work on my album again until we get back. I already know the photo(s) I want to take for the Christmas Eve spread, then of course it is Christmas Day and all bets are off wrangling 28 people for photo time. Still, I am confident that I will get those last 2 days in the album, and then it is on to One Little Word. Thank you, Ali, for all the creativity over these past years, and I wish you and your family the happiest Christmas and New Year.

    My first year doing DD (and scrapbooking) and I have loved working on this project. Ali, you seem to have a different idea every day. It has been VERY helpful to actually watch you put pages together. When I watch you do make a page and think aloud, I think that I can do these techniques also. I loved the product play class, also. Merry Christmas.
