slow off the start....

...but I'm getting there.
I finally completed my first three days of my December Daily album. It's not that I haven't thought about it or anything, it's just that I literally haven't had the time to sit and play with paper and glue. Last night I locked myself in my room and finished the three days and set the rest of the album up so I can get caught up. I'm not throwing in the towel yet!

Day 1: The Advent Tradition

The Day 1 overlay was just a vellum sheet cut down to size and embossed using the Cuttle Bug and decorated with the number tag from Echo Park (you'll see more of those through out this album) and the "Merry Christmas" strip from My Mind's Eye.

Journaling: and so it begins. December is always full of magic and traditions. I can't wait to see what is in store for us. <3

Day 2: Bear Hugs

This day I printed my favourite scripture on service on an oversized HO3 tag, vintage lace and journaling about staying up late making several of the Bear Hug service cards and about my calling and how much I have grown in the past year. I plan on making some more of these to put under my family's tree this year. Shhh it's a surprise. ;o)
Just a peek of the inside of the card :D
Day 3: Sugar Cookies

For this day used my Cuttle Bug to emboss the vellum Day 3 overlay and Stickled every. single. dot. For the 3 tag I used Echo Park and some vintage lace I picked up in Canada. The Holly Jolly paper is Fancy Pants  and the photos were taken with my fancy new phone. Gotta love the funky Retro Camera app (cookie sheet photo)!

So here it is. As I find what precious time I have to complete these days I will continue to update here for that added accountability. My goal is finish up any loose projects so I can start the new year with a clean slate. But that's for another post. ;o)
