December Daily | Day 5&6

I included a lot of artwork for today.  We had a fun little outing to the Crayola factory before we left Pa.  I added a little washi tape and letter stickers to the puzzle Avinash made.  After we got home Avinash made this circle for me and I loved it too much not to include it. 

I trimmed a journaling card in half and added a die cut from the SC 25 days class, with a gold foil chipboard number and Atlantic glittered gold star.  Loving little metallic touches right now.

 The thing I really wanted to journal about was this little moment at the end of the day, so I added another journaling card on the next page. Dear Lizzy gold foil letter stickers + OA Silent Night journaling card. The birch tree one is my favorite from the set. 

 Stamp and enamel dots from the SC 25 days class kit.
I added a little confetti pocket with planes and stars since the 6th was a travel day.  I just cut and pasted my status from FB as my journaling for the day. 

Journaling reads: "Totally survived flying from Pa to TX with two kids at 30 weeks pregnant. We had snacks, did workbooks, and slept. . The pilot showed Avi the cockpit and the Christmas lights. The stewardess gave them wings. Nobody cried even a little, not even me. There was no twitter war. I'm sure nobody will remember the quiet kids on a plane but I am super proud of myself." 

Today I went back and added a photo to the back of Avinash's artwork.  He even approved of my selection and said it looked nice together.  Nothing like getting the okay from the artist himself ;)

I had more to say about the day, more little moments I wanted to record.  I added text (the font is Autumn, a lovely hand written serif, which is a quirky combination I just love) in white to a photo from our evening excursion.  I just used Picasa to add text and moved the words around to fit the tree using spaces.  I would have right justified all the text but I kept running into the hole punches.  

I printed it as an 8.5x8.5 square, adhered it to the paper and trimmed around it.  I added the magic stamp in silver (rubber stamp from Elise), which was a bit of a risk since I couldn't straighten it as well as a clear stamp.  Then I decided to just stamp it at a slant, problem solved.  I added silver glitter Heidi Swapp stickers from the SC Blue Note kit as well.  I felt these were sturdy enough to last outside a page protector, unlike enamel dots or something.
