1st December!!

Wow, wow and wow!! Well, it is officially now the SECOND day of December 2014!! I can’t actually believe that it is here already and I have one day DONE and dusted!!Β 

For our pages I had a fairly good idea what photo’s I would include so that made the decision making super easy, especially since I managed to get a cracker of shot of my littlest guy putting the star on top of the tree for the 1st time!! His face is priceless and will most definately make our PL album for the week and more than likely a 12×12 as well!!

But, since I already had in my head a 6×8 shot of the tree I stuck with that and that makes up the 1st of the 2 pages for day one πŸ™‚

I have added a brush from Ali Edwards December Daily 2014 Combo Pack but have edited it to take off the day number and the lines at the bottom. I just wanted a fairly simple border around the whole thing. The little embellishment cluster was already put together – even had the foam dots attached to the back πŸ˜‰ Popped that on and called it done!!

Side 2 – a shaker from Michelle’s kit with a sticker popped on top, a photo of our elf, Pixie and her return to our home, a filler card I had in my stash from ages ago by Agnus from Scrap That with a flair from stash attached and some journalling straight onto a 3×4 kit also straight from the kit πŸ™‚ Oh, that card that looks blue (behind the vellum) is actually teal but I couldn’t for the life of me get it to come out teal in the photo!!

And both pages together

Well, 1 down and I gotta admit, I am rather impressed that I have managed that so far!! Haha!! Have already started work on day 2 – ideas hit me as I was doing housework!!

Hope you are so far enjoying December and your journey documenting it or just following along!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Melinda… I found your blog through Snap it Up Project Life on FB and I am glad I did…. I have been a scrapper for a long time but I love the CAS approach to PL and it seems to suit me very well. I will start the week by week in the new year but for now I am just doing pages as I need them so I feel like I am floundering a little. I have joined your blog and I will be back. πŸ˜€


I've just printed out my Day 1 photos…. feels good to be making a start! Happy December to you! Loving your first pages, keep up the great work πŸ˜‰


I love it!! I had planned for my Day One to be an enlargement of my tree but I'm running behind in the decorating department. 😦 I love the December with the gold stars pocket! This rocks!
