I have set in mind that this December I am completing....December Daily...
Have you heard of December Daily? Well...it is just quite an awesome little idea started by the talented Ali Edwards
Here is what she says about it:
December Daily is an album project that documents the 25 days leading up to Christmas. Many people start their documentation earlier and many people go longer. I have found that 25 days is just right for me.
It is a chance to reflect, to share, to celebrate the season in a manageable, in-the-moment way. The entire key to this album is to put it together BEFORE December.
I can say that I have always wanted to do December daily but was never on top of my scrapbooking game to have the album done before December....really? Well this year I said I was doing it....so Dec. 1 rolled around...bought snacks, energy drinks, and headed to ashley's scrap room and we began the process of creating our albums! It took a little while for me to get rolling, but once I did....I was on a roll!!
I was motivated and on a mission....because I know me....if I didn't complete all the pages ahead of time...there would be no way during my busy weeks....I would be able to document each day and scrapbook a page. This way everything is pretty much done....print some pics out, grab some washi tape, a few mementos from the day, do a little journaling and you are done!! I have to say 14 days into in and I am loving it and it is getting me excited about daily scrapbooking!
Here are a few pics I took with my phone, but this weekend I plan to take out my good camera and get some better pictures of the book....
|The foundation of the book....all the mini pages....I choose to used various size pages....no specific theme...just all blends together! I love multiple layers and various textures...so I am not surprised by book turned out this way!|
