Yay! December 1st is here!!!!
I was waiting for this day since a long time. I was so eager to start decorating. :)
Today we put up our Christmas tree (like probably so many of you!!) and as usual it didn't go as smoothly as I expected. ;) You know, two little girls. We just didn't have the same idea of decorating a tree. They actually thought decorating a Christmas tree means bringing our toys behind the tree and waiting until it's done so that we can play with the glass ornaments. Why wouldn't it be this way? It was this way last year. Can't blame them. But this year I said no! And I was firm, and they didn't like it very much. So anyway, daddy had the very good idea of bringing them to the movie theater to see Frozen (Apparently it was very good, but my little Arielle thought it was sad and started to cry in the middle of the movie. - She is just like me!) so that I can decorate, which I did. On my own, with Christmas music playing…I didm't know if it was a good thing. Decorating alone is kind of, not what I was expecting, but at the same time, it was MUCH quicker that way.
So anyway, I had some material to scrapbook about today in my "our December story" album. :)
Here we go….
I staple a gold star to the calendar, right over the 1. I also added a gold label sticker and wrote on it.
This little card with Oh Christmas Tree typed in red is gorgeous. :)
Here I only added the 1. I cut the side so that it doesn't stick out of the pocket.
Look at this small gold star rub-ons from Studio Calico! No, it's not in the December kit. It was in the Antiquary kit and I just added the whole sheet to my DD Kit since I thought gold stars fit perfectly!!
The right page:
The little dot all around are stitching. I used gold thread.
This cute brad is from Crate Paper. And the big star is again from Studio Calico, but not from the DD kit. The gold sequins are from my daughter's stash. But shhh! Don't tell her!! :)
I'm very pleased with the continuation of my album. I'm happy to be up to date and ready to go for day 2. :)
And you? How's your December album coming along? Leave me a link here if you blog about it. I'd be happy to come take a look!! :)
Thanks for coming by everyone. It is very much appreciated!
