Hi, there! I FINALLY finished my December Daily album for 2013. I was great about keeping up with it on a daily basis at the beginning of December, but then got behind with our busy schedule. I used the same style of Simple Stories album that I used last year. I used the Heidi Swapp Believe collection this year. I bought the 12x12 paper pad and cut my own 4x6 and 3x4 cards from the papers. I did this all ahead of time, which was super helpful. I also used the borders, and several embellishment packs that went with the collection.
I love that this album helps to keep in perspective not only the big, traditional holiday happenings, but also the little things that are just part of life. The layout above shows that I reorganized my pantry, along with watching Rudolph in the evening.
I also wanted to include some of the artwork that my boys made for me over the holidays. I picked a day, that I forgot to take a photo and added some art to the layout. The Santa in the top right was too big, so I just snapped a photo of it so that it could be included.
Here is a page that shows a less than happy holiday memory, but still part of life! A sick kid. I also like to include my home decor in my albums, so that the boys can remember some day.
I didn't want to bore you all with a photo of every page this year, since I was bad about keeping up with it, but here is a glimpse!
