Slowly Making Progress!

After posting pictures of my December Daily foundation you're probably wondering where the finished pages are. Well, they're taking me a bit longer this year. Partly due to my format (live and learn) but mostly due to my work schedule. December started on a weekend. A weekend in which I worked the Friday night and Saturday and Sunday all day! Not only was I a wee bit tired come Monday when I had time to sit and work on things, I found that since I hadn't been around all weekend I had no pictures and not much of an idea of what to document. Greg had taken some pictures from Marley's Jazz class on the Saturday and Sunday evening I got the girls to take some pictures of Greg's "do" after Marley styled his hair. Not very "Christmas-sy" but it is what it is and I just have to embrace it.

So, here we go ...

Here's a reminder of my front cover.

The inside of the front cover and Day 1.

I decided to add some stamping to the inside but because I'd already glued the frame and whatnot to the front it caused some missed bits in my stamping that I wasn't totally happy with. So I covered most of it up. Now its just background and I love it! I added a journalling card explaining how different I am finding this process this year as a working Mom and other bits and pieces.

Day 1 was kept pretty simple. A few pictures that Greg had taken with his phone, some journalling and some stamping.

Here are Days 2 and 3.

This is my attempt at creating a digital overlay. Not the best but it'll do. Some journalling and border stickers finish it off.

For Day 3, since I had no pictures, I took one of my pre-done art journal pages and simply added my number, some stickers and the journalling. Easy peasy!

There you have it folks. I'm working on Day 4 right now but will be working all day tomorrow and Sunday so ... who knows when this project will get finished!! Thanks for stopping by. If you're working on a December Daily or something similar I'd love to see it so please leave a link in the comments section.
Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. Okay, first off, Greg's hair looks awesome!!! I just have to laugh at that, so cute! Your pages are lookin' great, I love whatever you did on Day 3 (what is that? a stencil and paint?) It's really coming together nicely! And yeah, I'm behind too, but I should be able to get some done this weekend. I really want to stay on top of it and finish this year! Have a good weekend, hugs, Roxy. P.S. - have you had a chance to play with your new toy yet?

  4. I love the pages you've done, looks amazing. How awesome that Greg took the pictures and getting his hair done. These are memories you will love when she's a raging teenager and you want to remember that sweet little girl. Hope you catch up soon, can't wait to see what it will look like when done.
