...slowly, but I am working my way to documenting this December! That's right. Who isn't doing Ali Edward's December Daily??? LOL!! It is such a simple idea and look at how much it has grown in the short amount of time she has shared. Amazing....
So his week-end I have started to put my album together. Yes. It is traditionally late for the die-hard Ali fans!! LOL! But have you read my previous posts??? LOL!!
I am at least ready for the first week in December. Here are the first seven pages....
As this is my first year doing this project (ummm, yes I tried 2 years ago but failed miserably!!) I want to outline the purpose of this album on the first page. Put in the important details and the tiny ones. My aim is to journal. Photos will be important too, but I really want to be able to look back in time, to the year 2010 and get a good feel for what it was really like.... so you will see a lot of open spaces for journalling in my December Daily.
December 4 is going to be a big day (see previous post about dancing!) I already know I will have a huge number of photos for this day. So, I am planning on using a basketball/baseball collector's card pocket holder to house my photos and some journalling. It will slip between the two solid pages. I have also include an envelope on the first page to hold concert tickets and other little bits of ephemera. :)
hee! Clearly this will be the first day I will have any opportunity to set up the Christmas Tree with the kids. Hopefully I'll be able to drag Mark into the chaos of things too!!
I've set my album up to be 5x7" in size. And my photos will mostly be 3x4" or smaller, with the occasional 4x6" photo.
So, that's it for now. Wonky photos and all! :D Thanks for visiting, and secretly I wouldn't mind if you left me a few words of encouragement. You know,.... just to keep me going! hee hee! Thanks again...x
