December Daily Journal - 2009

It's been awhile since I have posted - I have been working on something new a December Journal. I got the project from Ali Edwards. The idea is to create thebasic book to be ready for each day as it comes. Once I have journaling and pictures, I can embellish a bit further. There is a page for the first 25 days of December, maybe I will go to the end of the month. Each page captures a memory of that day. I really like how my journal came out. It was fun to create. This started with a 7x7 album kit from Fancy Pants. There were chipboard pages, acrylic pages and two black felt pages. I made some of my own pages from card stock and file folders. Easy to do by tracing the shape. It is not bound yet, I am still trying to decide how I want to do this.
