Hiya Simple Stories fan!! Wendy back with my FINALE take on my December Daily using Simple Stories & Maya Road!!
Seriously, I can't believe I did it! Always had the ultimate intention to complete it out but would start, get frustrated, get behind, and with my recent printer issues FINALLY made it happen for this December Daily. So, I'm super pleased to complete it out (with the exception of a few days left - 22 - 25 - to round out the 25 days) but all in all, DONE-zo! :) I still have my bits & pieces of journaling to do on the pages but the pictures will help with all that & I have my notes jotted down too to go back & add it in.
So, I have a TON of pics of it all to share up so kick back, grab a cup of cocoa, and enjoy lots of eye candy & details because I don't wanna' skip a beat in showing you all the fun-ness (not sure if that word is legit) but hope you enjoy it. Also, pleasure share with us in the comments to this post a link to your December Daily so we can check it out! ;-)
Oh, on a side note, since I had printer issues with my initial post here. I'll re-share up those pages FIRST and so all flows down to the current to date. I'll pop in a bit here & there in the post to share up some tidbits with ya. Alrightee? ;-) Also, be sure to check out the supply list at the end of this post with LOTS of Simple Stories & the specific pieces I used from these collections; as well as all the fab fab Maya Road stash too.
Here we gooooo....
Check out the transparency filmstrip! FUN stuff, eh? That would be some Maya Road love! I layered some stamping under the transparency along with the perfet ticket stub stickers from 25 Days of Christmas.
I LOVE these mini alpha stickers from Year.o.graphy. 3 colors choices come on the sticker sheet.LOTS of options!
I think this is my favorite page so far in the Daily. I buckle in the knees over these resin flowers from Maya Road. to.die.for....just sayin'. I accented further with punched out circles from scraps of 25 Days of Christmas.
Sweet birthday card I made for the lovely Stephanie Hunt.
I simply love my 2 favorite lotions from Victoria's Secret - Sheer Love & Lost in Fantasy - they smell heavenlyyyyyy.
LOVE my creative chaos? I create on a messy desk that inspires me with lots of my favorites but the daily life is super organized, weird, eh?
LOVE these chipboard silhouettes from Maya Road. They were raw chipboard & I painted them with acrylic paint.
I'm all about a fun chipboard alpha and these are from Maya Road too and I painted with acryic paint.
There are so many fun elements to Year.o.graphy - checklists, etc. FUN!
Here I took a restaurant menu from the take out counter and wanted to add it into my album. I covered one of the Maya Road chipboard album pages with the restaurant menu as my background paper. I even cut out the header above the pics from the front page of the paper menu.
In dedication to my dad on passed away from cancer 6 years ago, Dec 20, 2005.
I'm kinda' addicted to the wildberry smoothies from McDonald's. :)
And a splash of 25 Days of Christmas on the 24th & 25th - love this collection too!
This Daily has been so fun & keeping me accountable in documenting in pics the bits & pieces into my daily grind. Also, fun selfies (aka self portraits) were lots of fun too.
Hope you enjoyed a peep into my world! :)
Hope you ALL have a super WONDERFUL & SAFE holiday with family & friends!!
So, tell me, are you almost at the finish line with your Daily albums?
(and yes, I actually read the comments & LOVE hearing what you have going on). :)
