Welcome to December Daily® 2018 Day 12.
On the 12th day of the 12th month Elliott turned 12. A "golden birthday" for a kid who is truly a kind, fun, special kid - I am so thankful I get to be a part of his life and it was so great to get to take him to New York earlier this month (more on that adventure soon). For my story today I wrote a little note to him in the reverse shape of the heart I used yesterday (I printed that note twice and added it to the bulletin board in his bedroom).
Here's a look at how I celebrated him in my album:
I used my Epson PictureMate PM400 to print the 5x7 photo - you'll hear me say in the video that the reason I chose that size is because I'm out of my other sizes of photo paper. Ha. Make do with what you have is how I'm working today.
I moved my original 12 chipboard from the embellishment tree I created in December Daily® Product Play 2 to this day and will use that tree for my story tomorrow.
My journaling is a little note to Elliott that was added to the back of yesterday's vellum printed photo. In yesterday's post I included a digital package with the book club heart and the reverse of the heart to be able to adhere the same shape on the back of the vellum.
To create this I hand-wrote the message, scanned it in using Illustrator, traced the design and then reversed the colors to get the white type on the black heart. I did something similar in my album last year here.
