For those of who, who don't know what this is about: December Daily® is a project by Ali Edwards, which gives the chance to document the month of December day by day - or however you wanna do it, there are no strict rules or rights and wrongs. Check her website and blog for more information, please.
On Tuesday, December 5th, I didn't do anything Christmasy, so I needed a filler page. I decided for my Christmas tree story, because I had already done the layout on the right and needed a day on which the page protector turned out to be on the left.
The idee for the layout with the Christmas tree on the right page, I got from Ali's "product play" class and from someone on Facebook, who altered the idea leaving out the stiching part. Ali used another shape, but after considering what would work best for me, I decided to go with the tree. It was really fun to put it together and I really like the result. On top of the tree, I added a pink glitter star from my stash and in the bottom right corner a cork #5 from a set Ali offered this year.
On the left side, there is the page protector with a small journal card, which says "o' Christmas tree" and shows a tiny tree. I liked this one so much, that I needed to use it this year. I wrote a bit about how I bought new Christmas ornaments this year, changing the colour of them. In the 4x6 pocket, I added a photo of my mum decorating my tree - though this happened at the end of November and a stiched paper heart from one of the story kits™. The background is the back of the journal card from Day 4.
I really like how these pages turned out and I am happy that this year, I decided to add a photo of my mum decorating the tree, though it happened earlier. I already wanted to do so last year, but in the end decided against it, as it was not happening during my documenting December time.
