December Daily update.

An in-between page...
A 'Midsummer Night's Dream' was Asher's end of year drama club production and wanted to include it in my Dec Daily. I have tried to recreate the stage background of sorts on the intro page. We had flower vines hanging down the back of the stage so that it looked like a forest.


I played around with Deb's background idea on one of her previous pages and included the words of my favorite line of Asher's in the show. 



And a small photo of her up on stage.
I have these two pages in my album back to back and have created a pocket for a copy of the program and my tickets.




Day 7 




Day 8



Day 9
Is in two parts. My day and Asher's day. 
Here is my day out of the album and in the album as I did some embellishing on the insert.
Out of the album

In the album


Asher's day
Out

In

Here is how I altered my insert.


After trimming down an insert sheet to get a small one I was left with two joined inserts. One pocket with no sealed edge and no place for the holes to add into my album.

I cut two strips of paper: the first 2 inches wide and the other 1 inch wide to the length I needed and scored them in half.



I used the 1 inch strip to seal up the cut edge and the other one as my spine piece.



Day 10
A rough day where I was on the verge of tears. I didn't get to take a photo used a photo from facebook that several of my fellow Autism group friends had posted in memory of a little boy taken too early. This page is probably the one and only one that I will stray away from my colour theme.



Day 11
 Lots of paint to create a background for my banner.

December daily day 1


 Day 1 with it's number 1 tag.
 Day one is always about putting up our Xmas trees. Mine in the living room and Asher's in her room
The crochet white doily at the bottom of the tree acts as the perfect Christmas tree skirt. The background is Ranger Dauber paint and a Purple Onion holly spray stamp.


The 'hoot hoot hoot' title is a play on words as my tree has an owl theme. I started my owl tree the first Christmas away from Craig and I always buy my owls in two's. One for me and one for Asher. The only single owls are two that have been given to me by a close friend and they are  the king and queen of the owl tree and always go at the top. My friend gave me and new decoration during the week, one that she couldn't resist getting. A cute dog in a Christmas jumper. I will share a photo of him later on in the month but he is hanging on the tree and is the official owl protector.


Make sure you pop on over to the Let's December Daily blog to check out how I created the number tags that I will be using through my album and what the other girls are doing as well.

As part of the tour there is a set of questions for us to Answer so here are mine.

What am I working on?
I have been in a bit of a scrappy rut for a little while now but with some help for my personal challenge guru, AKA Mandy, I am slowly getting back into the swing of scrapping again. 
I have got a mini album in the works of our holiday up in the cradle mountains with Mandy and her girls last year that I am slowly finishing off.


How does my work differ from others of its genre?
Over the years that I have been scrapping I have tried out most techniques and styles that have come round but have found that I will come back to the shabby layered look I have grown to love.


Why do I write/create what I do?
It is my release, my escape and my me time.


How does your writing/creating process work?
I am what my good friend Jane loving calls a fiddler. lol I enjoy starting off with my photo or card base and then just shopping my stash for goodies to go with it. I could sit with a few things laid out and play with them for hours, changing my mind out about most things several times before anything is stuck down.


I hope that you have enjoyed my part of the blog tour.

And now for my Tagee. Just one as I have yet to here back from the other as to if she would like to play along or not yet.


Ludka (Poland)

Ludka is one of my fellow Let's get shabby girls. She has been a member of the Shabby team for a few months now and before that a frequent challenge player. She has a gorgeous layered style and creates some beautiful cards.

Thank you Ludka for joining me on this creative blog tour.
