December 12-26, with 3 Inserts
We had LB's Godmother and her family over on the 12th for our annual Christmas get together and gift exchange. We made a quick candy cane reindeer craft and an even quicker ice cream cone tree for a snack. I used more of the Happy Christmas kit from Crystal Wilkerson & Kristina Proffitt for all the circle elements used for embellishment.
December 12-26, Insert 1
This is Design J and I used it to hold the very first Instagram pictures I've ever taken. On the front side, the "Happy Christmas", "Love", and reindeer cards are all from the same Happy Christmas kit I mentioned above. The camera card is Simple Stories and the "Remember" tag is very old K&Company. On the back the house card is from the Winter Wonderland collection by MME.
December 12-26, Insert 3
Insert 2 is of art work and a program from ER's first grade class. While meaningful to us, it's not that exciting to look at so I'll move onto Insert 3. This holds another piece of art but the main reason I included this is the written description on the reverse.
December 12-26, Right Side
The second half of the week is in a Design F. It has ER's holiday party, the Holly card with the description is more MME and the "Just [Me & The Girls] card for a Mom's Night Out is from Photo Journaler V1 by Gennifer Bursett. The other cards are from my Clementine Core kit, I added washi tape on top of one to work better with the tree circle, also from the Happy Christmas kit referenced above as is the "Let It Snow" filler card.
Since so much goes on during Christmas I decided to spread things out, rather than trying to pick just one or two photos to represent everything. I wanted to share some last minute treats we made, that little frame is Studio Calico and a reindeer drawing I had ER draw specifically for including in that slot. It cracks me up how she writes, "Ho, ho, ho" as "Ho" to the third power. The date circle, ornament card, and snowman card are all more goodies from the Happy Christmas kit I've been using all December long. I got a lot of use out it and it was a great purchase!
The rest of the Christmas Eve pictures are in 12x12 Ring (9-4x4 Photo Sleeve) from WRMK. The pictures are all fairly straight forward from the gift opening time so I just added a filler card in the center from MME.
December 25 - Christmas!
Normally I would not suggest redoing and redoing a Project Life spread but this one gave me a lot of headaches! It went through several versions but I am finally happy with it. I even went back to Archivers to buy a second piece of paper from the MME line so I'd have more patterned papers to work with. I really love the coordinated look and how it turned out in the end.
