Project Life | December + wrapping it up

I did it you guys!  I finally finished this year.  I do not recommend getting this far behind (almost three months) but it feels good to be done.

Even though I did December Daily, I decided to include December in my Project Life as well.

Why did I bother?
  • Despite doing DD, I still had extra photos I wanted to include that I'm not likely to scrap. I didn't count the weeks, just filled up a spread until I ran out of photos or things to talk about.  
  • I felt it made the entire project seem more complete to end here, not November.
  • My journaling is sparse (and I'm okay with that) but there were a few key stories I wanted to tell.
  • I had more than enough product to finish these pages.  Probably too much which is why they ended up being a riot of color and patterns and random sayings.  Let's just call it very festive.  

I want to share the pages here but will just go over the highlights.

More about our week at home.  We attended a wedding and celebrated Thanksgiving.  I still have to add in some journaling here about their visit from Grandma.
I used these large 4 inch wood veneer numbers from Freckled Fawn.  I think they are just so fabulous.  

Quite a mix of patterns and colors I know.  But I did have to document some things like Nandini's insane love for a pack of dollar spot Doggy Stickers and a mini snowball with "texas" (re: fake) snow.  

This is the final week!!! I used some of the letterpress cards that I made.  I finally found the tag from the tree farm I had been wanting to use.  I also used the wood veneers and die cut cards I loved but hadn't found a place for yet.  My favorite parts are the pictures of my parents on here.

The closing page.  I kept it simple.  A group photo from Christmas and a couple from New Year's Eve.  We stayed in so I really didn't have many to include anyway.

So, how about you? Did you finish up PL?  I feel like I'm the last one to start on 2014 but I did the cover and am starting the last few days this weekend.  Yay!

In baby news we are still waiting.  I am progressing very slowly as of my last checkup which is a good thing.  My dad is here taking care of me and us and my mom is coming down soon too.  Praying that the baby waits for her to get here!  I don't know if I can go through labor without her and I really don't want to test that theory, lol. 


  1. Yay!! I'm glad you finished your year! I think it would be much more complete by including some of December too.

  2. Congrats on completing 2013, your pages look great! Wishing you all the best as you await your new one's arrival!
