December Daily 2013

Well, I just happened to come across this site HERE
"Let's December Daily"
I have a love for small mini's
I have a ton to alter, but all I seem to do is to collect them....
So to get me in the "practice" so to speak...
I decided to do the December Daily journal...
A page a day for the month of December
wish me I will need it!!

Here is my cover....
I used paper from Melissa Francis, snippets of ribbons I had
(a great way to use them up)
 a TH rosette snowflake I had already made (a time saver for sure)
I also used a SU punch for the spiral!!
The album I choose is a 4 x 5 Paper Reflection Memory Book I purchased from
Hobby Lobby in 2006, yep really 7 years ago...time to use it, don't you think??
This little book has 18 pages, so a few will have to be a double spread here and there..
I thought this would be fun as I have a ton of Holiday paper crafting supplies to use..
For my first page I knew I would be spending the day wrapping presents.
When I saw this MS paper with the packages on it I knew it would be perfect!
We have 22 grandchildren and 2 great....and we buy gifts...
so I have LOTS of wrapping to do.
I am shopping tomorrow for "the boys"
I know what day 2 will be.....
sound like fun???
Why don't YOU join in!!!

Oh, I'm great at collecting all kinds of alterables but seldom get around to altering them. You, on the other hand, have done a brilliant job with this! Beautiful!
