Needed something that was see through. I punched some confetti, added some snowflakes, and some stars. I love the result.

And that's a wrap of December Daily 2012. 

We are still out on vacation. Lots of adventures, snow days, and grandma and grandpa time.

I can't believe that there is only 1 more day left in 2012. I welcome 2013. I have a feeling it will fabulous.

When I get home I plan on getting my 2013 album ready to go. Starting with getting all my page protectors ready and a few other simple little things, that I am hoping will help out in 2013. I will share when I get back. Also they will help because the new kits are not available yet.

Until next time. Have a happy New Years Eve and see you back here in 2013 !!

December Daily Day 18 & 19

I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas. We had a very chill day. The kids played, we all played together, we rode bikes. (Someone got a new bike) It was great.

I am almost caught up on my DD album. I am sooooo proud of myself. This is the fastest I have ever finished this project. I am working on Day 25 right now and will have it done before I go on vacation. Yeah !! I absolutely love this project and love flipping through all the pages and reliving the memories. 

I want to share more of my December Daily Pages.

Day 18 | Preschool. It was my turn to host preschool. The kids decorated trees. I kind of "helped Noah do his so that it would fit on my page. He did most of it, But they turned out so cute !! 

Day 19 | Our new home being built.

Took some pictures on site today. Because that is my main Christmas gift. ( You can always click on photos to make them larger)

That is all for today. I am packing for our road trip to grandma's house tomorrow. Laundry, packing, house cleaning, and finishing up some scrapbooking projects for my design team assignments. EEk !! I'm not sure I can get it all done. Wish me luck.

I will plan on posting the rest of my December Daily while I up at my mom's. I might sneak another one in before I go. So look for that.

Have a Happy New Year everyone !!

Project Life Week 34

I first want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas from my family to yours. We are having a wonderful day here. Santa came and the kids have been very busy playing with all of their new toys.

I have another week of my PL done.

August 20 - 26. This was back in August. The first week of school. Patrick and I went away for the weekend to the beach.

I added a brush from Ali Edwards hello school. Also added the week #.

This is Katelyn sitting in her new desk. I lined up some brushes from here and then printed them onto cardstock.

Maddie on the first day of Kindergarten. All lined up.

Noah on his first day of preschool.

A journaling card about Katelyn starting 2nd grade and then a photo of Maddie on the playground.

A journaling card about Maddie starting Kindergarten.

An insert was added this week. I mainly took instagrams on our 2 day getaway to the beach so I included them in the Becky Higgins 4x4 page protectors design I.

Here is the other side of the insert.

My journaling space. I added the brush on the bottom of the space. You can find the brush here.

The last page is mainly made up of our weekend.

This photo is of Noah on his first day of Preschool.  The word school came from here.

Noah and his cars.

I had this transparency in my stash and it fit perfectly over the photo. Used the vellum arrow from Studio Calico.

We spotted dolphins while we were beach bumming it.

Journaling card about Noah and his backpack. Another journaling card about taking my mom back to her house in Utah.

Picture of the pier at Pismo. Added the date and then this brush. A journaling card about our dolphin sightings.

December Daily Day 17

Day 17 | Christmas cards

Christmas card love. I love them. Getting them, mailing them. I love it all. I usually have someone take our family photos in the fall for our christmas cards. But this year things are a little bit different and we did them ourselves.

I took advantage of the beautiful ocean view and got everyone together for a picture. We went down around Thanksgiving and it was perfect timing to show off a place that has become a favorite getaway for us.

I included a picture of me and the kids. Also a filler card. I used a brush from Kara Dudley. And then added a snowflake and the word US.

The journaling 4x6 card is from here. The word Christmas is from the same brush set as above, from Kara Dudley.

Here is our Christmas card. I put some patterned paper at the top and added a strip of journaling.

Only 2 more days folks !! I'm excited. If I don't check in before Christmas I wish each and every one of you a very Merry Christmas.
