DecDaily - Hot Cocoa & Marshmallows

I guess this is the second marshmallow page in a row (after the s'mores picture).  I got this big bottle of mini marshmallows at Target.  When Avi and I started to make cocoa, Ryan was like, 'Oh, you are doing this for your December Daily?" Ha! Not exactly, I want to space out the goodies I give them anyway...

I did a different rendition of a grid again.  This time all at a slight angle.  I cut out some tags from this Crate Sleigh Ride paper, added a border sticker and some silver glitter tape.  That I stitched down with gold thread, but it is pretty sticky and didn't really need it.   And, yes, I included a picture of Nandini pretty much scowling.  We had some marshmallow drama.

I used grey chipboard and wooden alphas for the title.  Been saving that red ampersand from an AC sticker sheet.  I propped it up on some glue dots.  I love ampersands, but find it hard to use them as a pure design element so it is good when I can work one into my title. 
I got this bag at the grocery store yesterday.  I love how they made pink and purple stripes look holiday.  I stitched that into a little insert today too.

I love the bokeh lights page in the SC Christmas handbook insert, but I had no intention of buying one and it just felt more personal to use a shot of my own tree.  I turned on the manual focus and got the tree nice and blurry for this picture.  I printed it out around 8x8 and trimmed it a bit shorter to fit the saying on the bag. 

I traced a file tab on there and cut around it.  I stitched around the edge in that gold metallic thread again. 

Love how it looks all together in the album.
(Proof that my albums get handled a lot, like it or not.  I love that she is interested, but I have to supervise.)
