December 4: A family gathering to celebrate my brother-in-law's birthday. The journaling talks about how much I love the relationships Milly is developing, especially with her cousins. I used a 6x4 photo that I cut in half to fit into the two 3x4 pockets. The journaling card is from the Paislee Press Mini Kit. I trying adding the number on the left side of the photo, where there is blank space, but it felt unbalanced. A little vellum flag created a calm spot on top of the tree, where the number seemed to fit more naturally.
December 5: I used a full sized photo of Milly with her advent calendar, talking about the ways she is discovering the magic of the season. To add some glitz to the page, I decided to use a full-size transparency on top where I added the number and cut the word 'magic' out of gold foil with my Silhouette. For the back side of the transparency I cut the word in reverse from a photo of my sister's wedding dress.
And here's the spread in the album.
