Oh What Fun | December Daily 24-25

Well, only about two weeks late and just when everyone is completely over the whole holiday season thing. In fact, just today I saw our Christmas tree blowing down the street after it was ensnared by the garbage truck and then broke free of it's bonds.  Run free little tree, run free. 

And, here I am, finally posting my final installment of my December Daily. I so often feel like I get 90% of a mini album finished and then move on.  It took me a while after Christmas to pick up the album again.

 I added in a little spread about this being Lakshman's first Christmas.   He is such a joy and light.  I had to celebrate him a little bit extra here.

I used the Ali E story kit stamp set and this old SC page divider.  I stapled in a little tree and a silver "Santa Baby" sticker.  I stitched around it with red thread.  Hand stitched because I can't seem to machine stitch straight.  I wanted some clean lines here.

I pasted a picture of a tree I took early this month on the back.  I used some more old Crate Paper chipboard here just for fun.

I used another fabulous card from the Pink Paislee holiday line for the date.  I stamped a pattern on the back and added another chipboard piece.  I adhered it the the page protector so it floats over the page.  I love having different sizes and configurations of paper in a mini book.

I had to put in this half page insert for extra pictures from the 24th. This Christmas Eve picture is just the cutest thing.  I swear I was trying to keep him away from sweets until he turned one but it hasn't worked out that well.  He just knows.  He was super happy to hold this cookie and take a whole bit before we took the plate away from him.

 I stapled another set of silver stickers to a page tab.

I did my journaling right on the photos here for efficiency.  We decided to make my 'famous' Christmas Pan a day early and  I had to put in a picture of it here.  Did we celebrate the last night of Hanukkah a bit late?  We did in fact, but not due to lack of reminding Ryan on my part.  He claims the holiday confused him.

And, now for the big dance!    Christmas morning and presents and photos just seems to go hand in hand.  I stamped a sentiment on each of the photos.

I added an embellishment insert for fun in the middle here.

An old die cut, made last year, a stocking chipboard, a scattering of plastic stars and a little red heart from the kit.

 We made fake snow for Nandini.  She had wanted to make a snowman on Christmas but was pretty delighted with the smattering of cornstarch and shaving cream she saw.  Ha, it was random and fun.

I love stamping on photos, especially along diagonal lines that present themselves.  Lakshman was a big fan of all things paper and bows.

 I journaled a lot on the photos here again in last ditch effort to tell some of the stories of that day.

Share joy.  Here is to more in 2015!
