December Daily

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving this year! We had a really great dinner and it was all low-fat, low-sodium  because of my dad's post-heart attack diet. Nobody could tell a difference in the taste of anything and we all saved a billion calories probably!
Since the Holiday season is underway now, I thought I'd post my December Daily album. If you haven't heard of this or want to know more, check out Ali Edwards' blog for the details. Here are the shots of the cover and pages...


Supplies:
Fancy Pants Traditions Flocked Transparency
Pink Paislee Parisian Anthology Tickets
Slice + Noteworthy Design Card
Bazzill Kraft Cardstock
My Mind's Eye Lush Flocked Alphas in Red
Office Supply Tag from Staples
Jenni Bowlin Mini Bingo Card
Jillibean Soup Journaling Sprout and Corrugated Star (little gifts from CHA!)

I hand-stitched the "December" and thought about doing snowflakes on every page where the date would go. Then I decided that was WAY too much work, and stuck with cutting the numbers out with my Slice. The Pink Paislee tickets are a must have- 100 in a pack for $4 so I barely even put a dent in my supply of them.
My book will cover December 1 through 31, but I know some people are doing "12 Days of Christmas" and just documenting 12 days out of the season, some are just doing December 1 through 25th, and some are doing Thanksgiving through New Year's. Either way, it's a fun little project that you will really enjoy looking back on in years to come.
Is anyone else playing along with this? If so, leave a link- I'd love to see your albums, too!

Love it Sarah!! I'm playing along, just gotta finish up my album prep this weekend. The only thing I don't have that I might try to find later are some transparencies. I'm using an 8x8 Fancy Pants Binder for mine so I can add extra pages as needed :)
