December Daily 2012...

I have a GOAL...I am documenting all of December....I am recording my families daily memories...

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!
