December Daily and Friends with Flair

Today is Friday and time for Friends with Flair!  So it's December again and everyone is working on their December Daily books.  I've tried in the past but never quite made it work.  One year I did a small chipboard style book with a bunch of pages for events in Nov and Dec.  Never did do a "real" Dec 1 - 24 style book.

After being inspired by my crafty friend Angie Bloom and her 8 1/2 x 11 size I decided to give it a try.  I also have a simple plain 8 1/2 x 11 scrapbook album I've hardly used.  So it's Dec 7 and I have 3 pages done, I didn't say I'll be able to pull each one off each day though.  But maybe I can finish by Dec 31 at least?  HA we shall see.

Here are my first 3 days:




Yes I'm going VERY simple on purpose.  Nothing crazy fancy or super pretty necessarily.  But again we'll see how the month goes.  I haven't used too many stamps yet but on day 2 I used some snowflakes from Unity's kit called Snowflake Kisses and the city image on Day 3 is from Snowglobe wonderland.  The cool tree for day 3 I cut out with my new Silhouette Cameo!  It's my Christmas present this year.

Well that's for all!

Good for you for even trying a Dec Daily. I don't know where people find the time. It would be the one thing that would put me over the edge. Enjoy your new Cameo. Great gift!
