December Daily - Day 11, 12 and 13

Happy Monday - and the catch up continues!.  I cannot believe that the boys have only another day and a half of school and then it's the holidays.  Where did December go?  I hope you had a great weekend doing all the fun things that happen at this time of the year and spending time with loved ones.  Thought I would share a few more pages.

Day 11 - the journalling reads - "Today was a day all about trees.  First the school tree.  You both hung your baubles for charity along with your classmates, you were so excited to see the tree "fill up" throughout the day.  Then, the church tree with Grandpa for tomorrow night's concert.  He used his golf ball retriever to get them to the top!"

On the back is a close up photo of the school tree with an Ali Edwards Overlay incorporating into the photo before printing.

For Day 12 I had created a divider using a green paint strip sample and the tag from Little Yellow Bicycle and stapled on some green leftover ribbon from my stash.  This album is evolving as I am filling it and I am trying not to worry too much about each individual page but more about what it contains at the end.  This was a tip that Ali {Ali Edwards} shared at the beginning of the process and sometimes it is hard when you don't like the look of a page but I know I will end up adding some embellishments at the end!.

The edge of this page is scalloped and came pre cut in a mat stack from Little Yellow Bicycle which I love.  Half the work is done for you... especially as this is my first year doing this album.

Day 13 - Sunday - features journalling and a photo of the The Advent Wreath in Church.  My parents phoned to know if the boys would like to help dress their tree - the boys jumped at the chance - it is documented using an Ali Edwards Overlay - December 13, available from Designer Digitals here.

Grandma and Grandpa's little helpers - tree decorated - hey presto!  They were paid in chocolate!!

Hope you all have a great week.  Will share some more tomorrow.  Thanks for stopping by.
