December Daily - Days Twenty-One and Twenty-Two

Like I mentioned in my last post there are some stories that I felt have not been told this year and the more I thought about it I realized that they probably didn't warrant full spreads on their own but were still things that were important for me to capture.  I decided to do a page of some of my favorite holiday things and this is what I ended up with.  It took longer than I thought it would I had a few different variations on the pages before I ended up with these two late last night.  I really love the way it came out.

The left side is a collage using a template that I've already used in the book but I changed it up a bit by changing the words and adding the star and also numbering each of the photos slots.  I knew I wanted to talk about each thing on the next page so I felt it would be best to number each item for clarity.  Totally random things but things that meant something to me this year that I wanted to capture even in a tiny form.

Here's a close up

And the right side which holds the journaling.  I wanted the upper box filled with the text and again used two fonts and two colors to highlight.  I'm beyond thrilled with how this came out, LOVE!

And a close up if you want to read it more easily.

Yesterday we had a change of plans so that meant adjusting my page plans.  Each year I buy a special wrapping paper that is just for Simone's gifts.  It makes it easier for us to know which are hers from us and I love how it looks to see a big pile all wrapped the same.  The smaller gifts shown in front of the boxes are the things for her stocking.  We wrap our stocking gifts too.

The right side ended up with no real journaling but I did add this cute fabric tag I got last year from Little Yellow Bicycle.  I'm so MAD that I mis-spelled Ariel but I can't fix it so it is what it is.  I cut a piece of the wrapping paper and just added No Peeking in the letter stickers that came with the Studio Calico kit.

Have a good day!
