December Daily Day 3 - 7

I am loving December Daily but I'm trying not too overthink anything and not to make it look like last years.  Since we have the same decorations and do the same things day after day I'm trying to make it interesting and different!

Day 3
Day 3 Happy Birthday to ME!!!!

December Daily 2012

I've had a countdown to when I could start my December Daily for the last two weeks. I am so happy I can start playing!!! Still not sure if I have given myself enough 'stuff' but I should have enough to keep the crafter in me happy.
Photobucket 
My front cover. Usually I don't decorate the covers like this, but its for Christmas. I used some Mister Hueys mists. Stamps. Washi tape (which isn't really sticking) and some Studio Calico Mistables - which are lovely!
Photobucket 
I tried to keep the first page quite simple.  A basic title of December Daily 2012 and some tree embellishments.

 Photobucket 
December 1st. I got a hair cut so used a self portrait with my shorter hair (about 5" was chopped off).

 Photobucket
December 2nd. We had Layne here for a day of playing.We all did some coloring.

These photographs are really dark. I will try to take photographs of the other days earlier when there is more natural light. Tomorrow is my XXth birthday so I have an idea what my photograph will be. I horribly will have to go to work too. Wearing lots of layers from now til Spring time. Shiver.

Before and After

Yesterday I had my first haircut in about 4 or 5 years! I was ready for it to go. It was getting annoying having sooo much hair! But it's weird having 'shorter' hair!

After I don't think I will wait as long for my next hair cut.
I have a before and after photograph that I would love to show you! And I need to start getting December Daily posts up!

I am out of storage for uploading photographs!!!!!

Not sure what to do - so... advice?

Ireland Writing on the Road Travel Journal

 This album is about 90% finished. I still might add a few little things and write some more but it's finished enough.
 I've just photographed some of the pages. I love the kit that Ali Edwards gave us. But normally I wouldn't have picked these papers and colours. I tend to go towards bright but that's the good thing about kits. It makes you think about other styles and different colours than you would usually work with.

 I love using my DSLR camera and being able to take thousands of photographs! And it was fun to go on holiday with just my Mom.


 I loved just  being able to slip things into the pockets.
 We grabbed a few postcards that are stickers.




Ireland was awesome! Working on the layouts for the big scrapbook now.

Italy 2011 - Scrapbook on the Road

 Almost a year later I am finally blogging about my Italy Scrapbook on the Road.  We (Mom, Me and StepDad) went to Italy with ScrapMap and had a scrapbook class with Ali.

 I learnt a lot from the classes with Ali. Like, you can cut page protectors and you can put stickers and embellishments on the outside of page protectors.

 I loved playing with all the little bits we had in the kit and all the little bits I collected during the holiday.

 This isn't every page - probably ever over page. The album is pretty packed full!




Up next is to finish the Ireland Scrapbook and get that blogged. (hoping to get that done before December Daily starts!!!)
