To begin my December Daily 2015, I created a 'The Reason Why' page to act as an introduction to the mini book. I hand wrote on white cardstock, embossing 'The Reason Why' stamp that came with Ali Edwards' Storytelling with December Daily class and sewing for texture.
Creating this page on December First, I did contemplate stamping the number 1 on the tree and considering this my first daily entry, but decided not.
I am considering adding a decorative page to open, but this is the spread at the moment. The pages themselves are 5x7 inches while the covers are 5.5x7.5.
I've already managed to make a splotch on the inside front cover (made worse when I tried to remove it) so the glitter tape is bling with a practical purpose. :)
December 1: My annual Christmas shopping day with my friend Nicole actually happened last weekend, but I've noted down that date at the end of my journaling and I'm happy for this to be the entry for December 1st.
With so much going on in the photos I limited my embellishments, stamping 'first' in green ink and adding an overlay sticker and a little star rub-on.
There is a lot I could have written about Nicole and I and our two not-so-little bumps, but I'm looking forward to meeting her new little person one day very soon so I know I'll have the opportunity to tell more of this story later in the month.
