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


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.
