December Daily | Days 15-21

I can't believe that tomorrow is the last day of 2015. It feels like just yesterday the year was starting, and now we're all making plans for another year. Today I'm sharing the third part of my December Daily album.

 I decided that I wanted to finish day 14 off with another large quote. I already did the other side of the page, so I made sure to choose one that would look okay being cut in half. I added the "favourite holiday" banner between "the" and "magic" so it reads "bring on the favorite holiday magic" (even though favourite is spelled wrong).

 Day 15; I went with my parents to my niece/sisters school Christmas program. No photos, but used the December release of Kellie Stamps (here) to create the merry & bright card, and the title for my journaling. I punched holes in the program and included it as an insert.

 Day 16; I documented the advent Calendar that I bought Jon. We both loved it. So much better than the cheap chocolate advent calendars my parents bought me as kids. Plus this one is calorie free and won't make you fat.

 Day 17; I visited my niece and nephew. My niece and I made little paper snowmen using the paper tube from a roll of wrapping paper and we cut each snowman to a different size to represent her family members. My nephew "read" me a book about colours. He's adorable and basically just turned the pages and made the noise he makes when he sees the kitty.

 The top left card was a flip pocket so I could include some journaling, and a photo of the two of them by the Christmas tree.

 I printed out this paper from the digital December Daily main kit and cut it with the silhouette to match my other divider. I added a wood veneer from Color Cast Designs to the front and called it done.

Day 18; The back of the divider, and a 2x2 pocket page for an "around here" layout.

I stamped little 2x2 pieces of white cardstock with StazOn and then embossed silver stars so I had somewhere to include my journaling. I stamped an arrow to show it goes to the right and around the outside of the page (though the journaling kind of describes the photo so you know what goes with what.

 I repeated the same idea on the back of the page. The right side is a flip out page. I adhered the "Merry happy everything" paper to the back of a photo, and added a glitter chipboard heart.

Inside the flip page is a TON of things from my Pinterest Christmas board, and 2 3x4 pockets (just cut the 4 pocket 3x4 in half)

 The number is adhered to a clear piece of plastic, and the journaling card is from a past December Daily kit.

Day 20 & 21; I adhered a full page photo onto the back of the flip out page and journaled straight on the photo. The right side was about Christmas music. I added an ornament from Color Cast Designs to the top right pocket.

The card with the "21" on it flips open to reveal some journaling. The see-through "jolly" piece is a tag from I Heart Studio's Heartfelt Christmas 1. It was a tag (like the star at the bottom) but I cut off the top and bottom to fit it into the 2x2 pocket.

Thanks so much for coming by to see these pages. I'll be the first to admit that the photos were rushed and not as good as the first two parts of the album, but I'll also admit that this is the holidays and we all have a lot going on, but I promised that I'd share more of it before the end of the year, so I'm sure it won't matter as much.

I'll be back on the 1st sharing the last of my One Little Word pages for 2015, and my word for 2016. The rest of my December Daily will be shared in the new year. Which is a little crazy to say. I hope you all have a wonderful day, and a Happy New Year. I'll see you all in 2016.
