Setting up the Christmas Tree + Day 4

I wondered what would happen when we had a day that nothing "special" happened (or the day was too crazy to capture a moment on film!!). Well, today was that day. School, the homework/dinner rush, off to soccer & then the bedtime snack & rush off to bed. I wanted this "journal" not only to capture the day-to-day but also the season. I thought it was important to add our tree-set-up day (which was the last Friday in November). So I picked today to do that. I was able to create a two-page spread here for day four. Again I pulled out the scrappin' kit to find all those stars, snowflakes & even the little words over the star on page 2. Megan added all those great buttons down the sides of each picture. I'm determined to use all the goodies I have here at home. On page 1 I used the stampin' up notecard (can't remember the exact name) from a mini {i think} and punched a hole in each scallop. I found Ali Edward's handwriting font online {yes, I cheated!!} and added that on cardstock vellum over the red striped paper. So... here's the full spread: Close up of page 1:

I'm really trying to take the time to enjoy the moments & stop the rush. I hope you are too!
stay warm,

I'm so glad that I found your blog... I love it! I really love your December Daily... love your use of buttons on this page and the cover. Isn't this a fun project?

I was keeping up until today... I took a break to make and address our cards (almost done) and also took a great nap. I'm going to wrap some presents this evening as we watch a movie. Then tomorrow back to my December Daily.
Come visit!
