December Daily 2009. Days 19, 20, 21, 22

Seriously?  Two days until Christmas?  Holy smokes.  We're all still sick, but I am hoping that we feel better tomorrow for family get-togethers.

This year is kind of funny.  My house is a mess, my laundry runneth over, we're sick, and yet I am super happy.  I think that having this extra creative outlet really helps me feel more like me.  And that is cool.   

I have some updates for our December Daily album!  Here is day 19 before:
 And here is the layout after:
Stuff I used: Starbucks cup (hee hee), gaffer tape by 7gypsies; game spinner by Tim Holtz; vintage red labels by Papier Valise; border punch by Fiskars.

On to the next!  Here is day 20 before:
And after:
This layout was super fun, I was inspired by this gal's December Daily picture and was able to recreate it at my parents' house (no breakable ornaments here).  I think its pretty funny that Roman looks much taller than me in that picture.  A sign of things to come for sure.  Like next week or something.

Stuff I used: number paper by Making Memories; clear acrylic frame, unknown; red ink on clear acrylic frame by Close To My Heart (Cranberry); tag by Avery; border punch by Fiskars; font used, avenir.

Here is day 21 before:
Earlier I had switched day 6 with day 21, so there should be a white envelope from day 6 here. But then my sister gave us a Christmas card with a super cool red envelope and I ended up using that instead.  Here is the after:

This layout was inspired by Ali's day three page.  I loved the idea of writing a letter to your kiddo in the book.

Stuff I used: santa paper by My Mind's Eye; "21" circle designed in photoshop (font is Rockwell Condensed) and cut out with Marvy Uchida's Super Jumbo Circle Punch (which is 2 inches wide - a great size to have on hand); border punch on envelope, threading water by Fiskars; letter stamps by Stampin' Up (the ones I used I think are retired, I ended up getting them on eBay for super cheap); tab punch by McGill

On to day 22!  Here is the layout before:
And here is the layout after:

Stuff I used: my kiddo's artwork from school; star ticket by Jenni Bowlin Studio; same stamp set used on day 21; binder-edged border punch by EK Success; "22" numbers unknown; mini index card for journaling.

I will actually be going all the way to the 31st with my album, our family always goes over the pass to see my husband's family where we have our second Christmas.  So stay posted, much more to come!
