December Daily Day 3

Day 3 | Trimming the Tree Part 2

Here is a look at both pages together.

Here is a look a the first page :

One of my favorite things about December is the lights, the glorious twinkle. Once it starts getting dark I ask Noah to go turn on the twinkles. He loves it, to go around the house and turn on all the lights. And sometimes he even turns them by himself during the day. "I like it". He says.

I used one of Ali Edwards 6x8 templates.  You can find them HERE. I did a little tweeking of the template to make room for my tree stamp and then added the strip of pattern paper underneath. The bring on the twinkle is from Ali Edwards Messy Christmas brushes. I love this one !! You can't see it real well but I added a Studio Calico star on top of the i.

Here is a look at the second page.

Here is the top photo.

I used another one of the frames from Studio Calico. Backed it with the tree vellum and then used my slick writer to go over one of Ali Edwards brushes. I put the brush onto the photo so that I could get the size right for where I wanted it, and then printed it out. Added the chipboard star. 

Here is a look at the journaling cards.

The left side has this brush. Also the arrows found HERE.
The right side has one of Cathy Z's Christmas journaling cards. You can find them here. I recolored some parts red, I needed some more red on my spread. 

And that folks is day 3. Going smoothly so far. Soooo enjoying this project. Until next time.
