This page in my December Daily was created by cutting a Project Life Design F page protector in half.
December 6: Mike and I arrive in Dallas to find the Children's Health Holiday Parade happening RIGHT outside our hotel. The taxi driver did a couple of loops through the city as he struggled to drop us close to the hotel. After dealing with our luggage, we stood and watched the end of the parade, loving every bit of it.
December 7: I don't think I took any photos this day, certainly none I wanted to include. We spend the day shopping, making our way to Target, a big mall and then Lowes. That's where we got a little bit stuck - buses finished for the night and no taxis to be found. We had dinner at an Applebee's, who phoned for our taxi back to Downtown.
The 'wish list' card is from Studio Calico and I created the 'shopping' card using the Blackout font and hand cut the number 7 which I backed with paper. We bought a new handbag for me (as a Christmas present) but I snaffled the tag before Mike wrapped it.
December 8: Our last day of honeymoon before getting on the plane for home - well, that was the plan - we took a bus tour of Dallas, learnt about JFK at the Fifth Floor and ate too much great food at a steak house for lunch.
Reminiscing about our honeymoon felt more important then what we actually did this day, so I used a Studio Calico journaling card to record some thoughts.
December 9 and 10: Our LONG trip home. Two nights in airport hotels - in Dallas because of a flight delay and Sydney because the airport curfew meant we missed the last connection to Melbourne.
I used our boarding passes to create the Day 10 card and my wonderful husband, who just understands me and this hobby, picked up the biohazard card from his work. It's pretty similar to one used on the plane to close down one of the toilets. Someone...ahem, me...may just have been dramatically sick mid flight. As I said, it was a LONG trip home.
The photostrip was taken using the Incredibooth app on my phone. I don't think any of the photos on this page are actually atrributed to the correct day - they were taken on the 8th and 11th as opposed to 9th and 10th - but I'm not fussed about that. They're pretty accurate of what we were doing and feeling on these days.
