I’m going to share a few more pages of my December Daily album and then the rest will have to wait until after Christmas. I’ve decided that I’m officially done with running to Costco to pick up prints so I will be waiting for some prints to come in the mail for the rest of the album. Have I ever mentioned that I’m not a fan of crowds? Totally don’t like them.

This page is an example of how my original vision for the day changed because of the photos I took. It was my intention to photograph the tree this day and explain how we decorate it. My daughter kept being silly by photobombing (getting in the pictures when she wasn’t supposed to). She even convinced my son to join in the fun for a picture or two. I quickly realized that was the story I wanted to remember for that day. So silly!
I lightened the transparency on the photo to let the word DOCUMENT from the digital card show through.
Riley also took a bunch of super creative photos of our Christmas tree so I have to brag a bit and show those off.
Then I had the brilliant idea to include a photo list from Katrina Kennedy of Capture Your 365 because it’s definitely a part of our December memories. It’s actually a list from last year, but we are using it right now. Here’s the link to this year’s list.
I just used a standard size page protector.
On the back of that page, I created a easy collage type of layout about Pinterest.
I decided that the story of the day for December 12th was Pinterest and the fun things I’ve found there and pinned to my Christmas board. I just dragged the images into PSE 10 and arranged them into a haphazard collage. I found a high resolution image of the logo to use for the title along with the Traveling Typewriter font.
I used 4 of the printables I had pinned on my Christmas board and printed them out as 6x6 squares. Easy & fun!
One of my favorite things about this project is the mix of page protectors I can use. I especially love adding other sizes like a standard sheet protector, that opens up a lot of new possibilities.
Of course, the best thing about this project is seeing this
Great kids looking at my album with a random pair of new socks on the ottoman just to make things look fancy. lol! Why didn’t I see that until just now?
