A promised share


I thought today I'd share a few pages from my December Daily.  It's not quite complete, every now and then I add a little more embellishing......not really my thing so you won't see too much.

The thing I've enjoyed most has been taking the pictures then playing with them in editing software. Adding overlays and text is new to me.  I've lots to learn but already I can see a difference between the first shots I played with and those towards the end of the journal.

Anyway here are a few pages.

My front page. I've added  the handmade cards we received from around the world throughout my DD.  I always keep cards that have been made for us and this seemed like a great way to store them so we could see them whenever we flip through the DD.  Therese's card was perfect for this page I thought :)

I used Studio Calico's kit and I must say I like the size for storage. It  came with three sizes of clear pockets which worked well.

Some of my pages have lots of journaling  some are more photo busy :)

I took quite a few snapshots using my iphone one of them giving the local weather which I thought was quite interesting.

I've been working on making up some little pockets with the DSP I didn't use. I want to keep all the tickets and brochures of places we visited white away.  I have pockets that just contain sequins, with the tops stitched to hold them in place........I think that was as idea that came from Pinterest!

I really think I'll keep adding throughout the year.......every time I see a technique that is new to me and I like it .....I add it to my Journal :)

If you made it to this line .........yeah well done! There's no fun looking at other people holiday snaps is there?    Thanks for taking the time :-)

This is just wonderful Sue, I was totally chuffed to see my card was included. I couldn't think of a better way to keep these cherished memories.

I think is really a super keepsake. I like the idea of adding to it with new techniques too!
