December Daily 2011...the end!

Something had to give on my desk. The paper and photos and embellishments for December Daily had sat there for way too long, and decision time had come...pack it up or finish it off!

With only a couple of days left to document, and a few spare minutes on my hands, I went with the "finish it off" option :)

You may recall, I hadn't even made the covers for this album (!!!) so that was the first thing to finish...

I usually do a little introduction-type page, but had very few embellishments left, so this is how it ended up.


It's not my favourite page, but it's done ;)

Day 23...

I wanted to include these cute gift tags that were attached to my pressies from Linda and Tracey...far too nice to throw away!
And Day 24, on which there were lots and lots of photos and stories to tell, but I went with just one...

...mainly because I was running out of time, and wanted it DONE! LOL

The Christmas cards I received this year went into a little pocket at the back of the book, secured with washi tape.

This was a new addition to my album this year, mainly because I could fit them in! The number of Christmas cards I receive seems to be dwindling each year...even I didn't send out very many this year, and totally missed sending my Christmas newsletter, which is previously unheard of!

So here it is, all finished and ready to take it's place next to December Daily albums from years passed...


...PHEW!

Have a wonderful Saturday!

Good on you for sticking at it! Your album is gorgeous. I am also one whose pile of cards each year is dwindling, but I don't send many anymore either, I think we are all the same!

Congrats on finishing! It looks great-- I love that cover! So cute!
The amount of cards I receive at Christmas is dwindling also... I didn't even get cards sent this year, so that could have something to do with it. Ooops. There's always next year. (Of course, I say that every year, for anything that doesn't get done at Christmas!)
Hugs,
Jill
