Scrapbook Sunday

Finally, it's done! I finished my 2008 December Daily album! Whew. I'm thinking I'm going to skip this December, that took way longer than I thought to complete. Of course, putting everything album-related in a box and ignoring it for months at a time probably had something to do with that.

Album info: The pages range in size from 6x6 to 6x8. When I started it, I wanted to use up all my Christmas paper and embellishments I had. I used a good chunk of them, including some of almost every Christmas paper I had. It felt good to use stuff I'd been just collecting for years and not actually using. I only bought two items for the album - a 12x12 clear page with trees by KI Memories and epoxy stickers from Archiver's dollar spot. (Which, by the way, is actually $1.99.) There was no rhyme or reason to the design, some are single pages but most are two page spreads. Some are multi-photos, some single. I included some memorabilia, including the girls letters from Santa, our church Christmas concert program and tickets from the Cavs game we went to. I really liked being able to include those things in it, instead of sticking them in a box.

Here are a few of the pages. Eventually I'd like to get the whole scanned and posted, in a slide show maybe. These are just all I've scanned so far.





(The journaling is on the back of one of our tickets, and they're punched to lay in front of the page. The journaling ticket is second so when you open it, the journaling is next to the pictures. I just scanned it wrong.)

(Two single pages, just scanned together.)


Now, on to another album on my list. Maybe I should start working on the mini-album I have planned about the week Mackenzie turned one...she'll be 2 two weeks from today. :)

So inspired...I haven't done my 12 days from last Christmas yet...I am proud to say that I actually competed a layout that didn't revolve around B! Did you use rings to put all the pages together?

Love it Erin! Seeing yours makes me want to get busy on mine. Why is it that it's so hard to finish up a mini album? I did my December Daily in an album on my blog last year so my brother in Iraq could see the pics. I haven't gotten them scrapped and in an album yet, tho. I haven't finished a little Thanksgiving album from last year either. Oh well. What can I say? I'm a mini album slacker!
