Yeah, I'm still working on my December Daily. Who cares that it's already the end of April?! ;)
Day 23: My last working day of the year and a moment of under-caffeinated inattention resulted in me getting booked by the public transport ticket inspectors. Not how I wanted the day to go, there might even have been a few tears. In the afternoon I went Christmas supermarket shopping so I included my shopping list and receipt.
Day 24, part 1: My first day of holidays! I've included a Christmas Countdown card from Studio Calico and a photo of friends we had over for lunch. The present photo is backed with vellum.
Day 24, part 2: Christmas Eve ended up at 3 pages because of the idea I had for this full page layout. Not quite sure why I didn't just go with two full page layouts.
Left: The selfie was a real favourite of mine when I snapped it. As I used the front camera on my phone, it was low resolution so I printed it out small. The tree decoration photo ended up a little shorter than the card on the back, so I sliced through the photo to extend it and added my journaling strip over the gap.
Journaling reads - Enjoying a cappuccino on an early morning trip to buy fresh bread. Catching up over cruisy Christmas Eve Mexican feast with Liz and Dave. Dressing up Julie's present with a booklet of photos and suggestions. Pottering around the house and taking countless photos of our Christmas tree. Love that lazy holiday feeling.
Right: I created this page in Photoshop Elements, just adding the little photo of BoyF and I on popdots after printing. The journaling is taken directly from a blog post. It's a simple page - I decided again adding any embellishment - which supports the story of a quiet house and will contrast with the chaos of Christmas Day to follow.
Next up, documenting Christmas Day.
