December Daily | Day 2

The kids were so excited when they woke up in the morning to open their advent calendars again. They raced down stairs and went straight for the chocolate.  I am just so happy that they are enjoying the things we have going on.  It's no Elf on the Shelf, but a tiny square of chocolate is enough excitement for them apparently. 

I was so proud of Nandini because she opened her Lego box but patiently waited until she got back from school to put it together.  

I added a 3x8 photo of Lakshman from the first. I love sleeping baby photos.  I was really playing with fire with this one because I used my regular camera and it has a loud shutter.  Amazingly, he slept through it. 

I didn't use a page protector for this.  Instead I folded a piece of gold foiled vellum and punched holes in it.  I added a few more layers with the ribbon and strip of patterned paper.  The little word strip is just popped up a bit. 

 I added one more photo on the back from the evening of the first.  I couldn't really crop it down to 3x8, so this is more 4x8.  I typed up a little word strip for the side and stitched it down with red thread.

The early morning picture of Nandini was dark so I just turned it to black and white.  I think I like it better this way than if I did have good light. I just stapled the large red chipboard directly on to the page protector.  I used the ribbon again on the journaling card here to tie in with the first 3x8 photo.  I made a flip card of this too and journaled on the back as well.
