December Daily Day 2

Hi everyone!

Sorry for the delay in posting, I'm a day behind because I'm working on Journal Your Christmas too (so I kinda need to wait an extra day for the prompts to come through!) Plus I had some issues with a page I made, which resultied in the big RIIIIIIIP!!

Anyhoo, without further ado, here is my December 2 spreads.

For the first 2 page spread, I used a photo of (one of) our boxes of baubles and added two Ali Edwards overlays. The first was the daily 'calendar' type one (the outside frame with the 2 down the bottom) and the second was the phrase.

December 2

I'm SO excited how this turned out. i think it looks just like a catalog. I'm really tempted to make it my christmas card.

On teh right hand side I added a small insert type (2 photos back to back). here is teh first photo:

This is also a photo with a couple of Ali Edwards overlays on it.

This is the second spread:

For the 'side B' photo (on the left), I did a similar technique and took the photo and added an AE overlay to frame it and give it a sentiment''.
Dec 2 Insert back

On the right hand page (the journaling), I simply added a text box to an AE template (the frame with the date) then I typed my journaling in, (I also altered the colour of the frame to hot pink to match the baubles in the photos and the trim on Isabella's pj's), and then printed!

On the bottom of the page I added some Lawn Fawn Sally's ABC's stamps to write a little sentiment to finish off the page.

Well that's it for me! I need to get some more photo paper tomorrow before I can complete days 3 and 4, so I'll hopefully be back then with 2 days to share with you :)

Thansk so much for taking time out of your day to visit me and the wonderful comments you've been leaving --it's really such a thrill to see what you've written!

Take care and see you tomorrow!
