The family went out early this morning to go Christmas shopping for me, as I slept in my nice warm bed and dreamt sweet dreams :)
Then Wayne wrapped all my gifts and the set up his video game television (yes he uses a different TV for gaming) and I set up shop right by him, to finally get to work on my December Daily.
And just to add more work for myself, I added red sparkle to these daily numbers.
They looked just fine without the sparkle, but we all need a bit of sparkle in our lives, don't we ;)
Here is my cover page for my December Daily.
I am going to add the year, but haven't yet.
I know one of my Christmas presents and am waiting till then to finish it off, as it will work perfectly for this ;)
My friend Myra and I made that flower with her spellbinders poinsettia die.
I added a bit of sparkle to the red flourishes and "December" with a red Spica pen I had received from my friend Pea :)
Here is my first day of my December Daily.
I am using all different paper companies and any embellishment I think might go with the papers.
The hardest part is printing out the photos.
Kristy and Ashley "were" doing the photo challenges with me, so I wanted to put their photos in here as well.
So I had to go on Instagram to copy, then edit their photos. Then I had to put the photos on a jump drive to be able to print them up on my Selphy CP800.
Some of the photos come up on the Selphy screen as a question mark, so I have to go back with the jump drive to only put on the photos I want to print, as I want to resize them, and I don't know which photos are which.
I should have purchased the Selphy 900 when they had that special, purchase 3 paper packs and get the Selphy for free….but mine still works so I didn't :(
Here is a close up of just the 1st page.
I am trying to keep it simple.
But even keeping it simple sure takes me forever ;)
I used Becky Higgins grid cards and added a decorative border to the top and inked the edges of the cards.
I took the photos with my cell phone, the pages are in page protectors. After I uploaded the photos I noticed how croked they are and blurry, but with keeping it simple (or I was to lazy) I didn't retake the photos ;)
Day 21 of Heidi Swapp's photo challenge.
Here is our Christmas Tree.
Day 21 of Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine's photo challenge.
I was truly stumped with this one. But what makes me Merry is to have my supplies around me and being able to create all day, and being close to my family.
This is my work station this weekend, as I am working on my December Daily, hubby is on the love seat next to me playing his video games ;)
Life is Great.
I hope you all have a wonderful and creative Saturday :)
