9th Day of Christmas

I decided to have a go at December daily this year…well just taking lots of pictures of the run up to Christmas and using a Simple Stories album I picked up at the Retreat!  The papers that come in the Simple Stories album are all red and went really well with Teresa Collins' Santa's List (my personal favourite Christmas line this year).  The first page I die cut the word December, used a little instagram photo and some older red numbers that I had in my stash (it's great as I don't use up that many of the numbers from my letters so this is the perfect excuse to use up lots of them by numbering each day).

You'll note that not all my posts are Christmassy…as it is our life as it happens and I'm not organised enough to plan something Christmas filled for each day :)  

I love just piling embellishments at the edge of my photos with strips of tape and paper.

Lots of photos to document our festive birthday - I made a banner with some of the TC die cuts, and then layered lots of papers and one of the beautiful prima bark stars.

I am really enjoying making this little album and documenting in a bit more detail, but also the variety of pages, so you get some that you can treat more traditionally as well as some pocket pages - it does come together fairly quickly, especially as I have limited myself to just my Christmas supplies!
