Yes, I know it is 2014, but I'm just finishing up the last few touches to my December Dailies Christmas Album for last year. For the cover I used the Warm Holiday Fun set for the jingle bells, Stitched Chevy Dies for the banner flags, and for the sentiments, A Day in December stamp set. Also, the zigzag border stripe is from the Fun Stitched Edges die set.


When I finally got the hubs to get down the Christmas decorations from the rafters in the garage, he had a little mishap and I had to replace one of my containers. oops! For this page I used several MCT sets. The journaling cards are cut from the 3x4 card die, ornaments from Warm Holiday Fun, cute tiny banner from the 4x4 Journaling and More die set and speech bubble die. The album, pocket pages, and papers are all by Simple Stories. 


But a couple of weeks later, we received a call from my sis-in-law. MIL would not live to see another Christmas. Well, I set forth scheduling a flight for the hubs to help out with arrangements and be there with his sibs for mom's service. It was a quiet Christmas being home by myself, and needless to say, I didn't feel much like finishing my book after that. Now it is completed and I'm working on this year's album. :)


Thanks for spending some time on my blog this week, thank you for all your lovely comments, and best of luck in the prize drawings!! I hope you've been inspired to create lots of heartfelt homemade creations for the holidays.


Today's giveaway -- be sure to comment for your chance to win!!!!!

  17. I love your album cover and seeing a glimpse inside it. It looks beautiful and how fun to be able to look back on Christmas pasts. I can understand why you didn't finish this up until now, but you and your hubby will have warm memories looking back at this. So sad that your MIL isn't around any longer, but memories like this are so awesome to have to keep their memories alive. Hugs, Brenda

  23. WOW-I can't believe you have your December Daily done for this year, no less next year. So sorry for your loss, but I'm encouraged to see you included a remembrance to your MIL in your book. We lost the beloved patriarch of our family this (my FIL) year. I will definitely honor him in my December Daily book.
