Daily Journal Your Christmas Day 2 & Day 3

Today we celebrated DD’s birthday by going bowling and eating out with some friends.

This year for the first time we have an advent calendar thanks to my precious Mother in Law. It is one about festive food and you get to add the food to the table each day. It tells you what the food is and where it comes from. Kind of a neat idea and one that does not involve a whole lot of little candies or having to buy more gifts. Nice that it continues to help us learn about other cultures and such too.

Hand written journaling to be added after printing.

Daily December or Journal Your Christmas

Are you doing Journal Your Christmas with Shimelle or perhaps a December Daily album with Ali E? This year I am going to try a combination really. Taking from the prompts and doing my own thing. It may be 25 days. It may go through to the new year. Who knows?

Not putting any pressure on myself to get this done. 🙂 I do like looking back on my big JYC completed album from 2008 . Not to mention need to finish 2009.

But this month calls!

Just going to take my photo’s, do some journaling and print out some digi pages. Perhaps adding some embellies as I go along. Simple pages in a 5 x 7 format so I can print two on a letter size paper from Red River Paper and then make my own cover. The plan is for one page to be the scrapbook page with some handwritten journaling on it. The other side of the 2 page opening will be a photo for the day.

Sweet and simple. We’ll see??

Speaking of sweet, today was my youngest daughters birthday. So obviously that is the focus for today. This layout is showing both pages on a background. Once printed out I will add the journaling.

Happy Birthday Sweetheart!

Sharing some Digital Work

Today’s layout uses some of the cute new baby products available over at The Digi Chick. There are so many lovely kits to choose from in so many different styles that it was very hard to pick one to start working with. Mind you pink always grabs me and this one eventually won out.

Plus who could resist that sweet little baby bassinet and booties?


This sweet baby of mine is the Munchkin girl we thought may have had the chicken pox this last week. It now appears as though it is just a post viral rash from the virus she has the week before. I don’t know whether to be relieved or not. It would have been nice to have it out of the way.

I have used Sweet Peach by Danielle Engebretson for the layout basis and some very cute word art from  Wordz Baby by Dawn Inskip.

The design is my own this time and I must admit it was fun coming up with something that was me instead of a template or sketch. Then again – some of my favourite layouts were done with templates. Isn’t it wonderful to have the variety your own work brings and yet also be able to work with others ideas as well!
