December Daily - Days 5, 6 and 7

Hi my friends!

Boy, I've sure been busy! It's been a crazy week at work trying to get a few books to the printer. Next week should be more manageable so I cannot wait for this madness to end.

I finished a few more pages for my December Daily album. Here's Day 5 (one of my favorite pages so far!). Of course, you'll notice a similarity between my page and one of Ali Edwards' pages. What can I say? She inspires me! I printed out a large photo with a hand drawn brush from Designer Digitals and some journaling right on the photo. Love it!

Next is Day 6 with a cute photo of the "Three Amigas" (me, Ady and Damaris). LOL! This was a photo that Cheryl took of us at the Christmas Crop on Sunday. I folded and stapled my ribbon to create this cute ruffle effect (something I learned from Damaris). I actually messed up this page because I forgot to punch the holes on the side to insert the binder rings and then I realized that the holes fell where my journaling appeared. Therefore, after some brainstorming, I decided to adhere the page to a Clearly Heavy Hambly overlay so that I could have some room on the side to punch the holes.

For Day 7 I used a Jenny Bowlin bingo card and adhered patterned paper to the back along with a self-portrait I took at the entrance to my home. Easy peasy!

That's all for now. I hope you're enjoying this holiday season! I still need to finish decorating my home and do some Christmas shopping so I am way behind schedule. Yikes!

Merry wishes and joyful dreams!
