Working On My December Daily...

This week has just flown by... It is hard to believe that we are going into our second week of December already!!!
We spent yesterday afternoon decorating our tree and our house and then last night our church had it's annual Christmas concert that we went to and now.... it's starting to feel a lot like
All we need now is some snow!!

Over the last few weeks I have been working on making my first December Daily. If you're not familiar with what this is, it is a scrapbook with at least one picture for every day in December.
I'm just about done making it and I have taken all my pictures and organized them into a folder in my pictures. I thought this would make it much easer when it is time to send them off to be developed. It would save me the time of going through everything and trying to remember which picture was for my December Daily.

I think that I would have been done making it by now but as soon as I was ready to put everything together I changed my mind on how I was going to number each day!!!
At first I was going to have cute little candies, snowflakes, banners and scalloped circles for the number of  day but as I made my first page I realized that it was just to big. The numbers were also to big to fit inside for the double digit day and it was going to be in the way of my journaling tag. :(
I have since gone with a much simpler number design and have decided to use lots of embellishments on each page instead.

I used a Kraft cardstock for the background and a black number and I really like how clean and simple it is :)

Today I had a fun crafty moment with my youngest son Nathan. He went to a birthday party this afternoon and before he went we made his friend a birthday card.

We personalized the inside of the card and the envelope, for the front I cut out this cute little doggie from Create a Critter Cricut cartridge and then embossed the blue background paper and the back of the envelope with the Happy Birthday Cuttlebug Embossing folder. The paw print and the sentiment are from the My Pink Stamper Even More Punny-licious stamp set. I cut everything out and Nathan helped with the rest!! It was a lot of fun!!

I hope that you have had a great weekend!!!!
Thanks for stopping by,
