December Daily Diary

This year I decided I didn't have quite enough to do during December (hehe) and I decided to put together a December Daily Diary. Seriously though, I just thought it would be a lovely way to document our family's fledgling traditions, recipes, and the other activities that happen during this magical time.
First, I put together a variety of pages - mainly bracket shapes, Kaisercraft Acrylic circle album, and Kaisercraft tag album. As you've probably guessed, I love using a variety of shapes and materials in my minis - just love to add interest that way:0) I then covered the pages using mainly papers from MM Fa La La range - a range I "collected" last year, and didn't use much of, even though it is gorgeous!
Here's a sample:

This is the cover - if you haven't scored yourself some new American Craft thickers in Nutmeg yet, you really should - they have an awesome glossy painted finish, and come in great Chrissy colours. This is the Spinach colour. The embies are bits n pieces from MM, Green Tara and Jenni Bowlin.

Page one and two - that sheet music is something that was in a kit from WIOIN - Mel is also showing her Daily December Diary on a blog, too!

Page 3 and 4 - more bits in pieces from MM, and the stamp, music sheet and Tim Holtz ticket also came from a WIOIN kit.
Finally, page 5 and 6. I made the little accordian album on page 5 to pop on some more photos of decorations from out tree. I got the idea of page 6 from Mel's Daily Diary blog.

That's it for today - not going out today, hopefully. I am going to do some more gardening, Chrissy cooking, and scrapping cards.
Will be back with more shares in a "coupla days"
