Memory keeping: December Daily – Day 3


Happy Sunday !

Just finished up the layout for yesterday, which once I settled on what I wanted to do, came together very quickly.  In addition to Ali’s main December Daily Kit, I also purchased Authentique’s  Retro Christmas papers and stickers.  My favorite December Daily albums are the ones that include retro inspired Christmas elements and papers.  Last year, I did not use any and I felt something was lacking while I was putting my pages together.


The story of the 3rd was the story of cousin DJ’s birthday party and cousins and friends hanging out.  The lighting at the house was lovely but very low so I played around with some photos in Pic Tap Go until I came up with a black and white option I liked (moody photo to match moody teenagers-ha!) .  A digital stamp from Ali’s shop from last year highlights the birthday boy… I papered and distressed the “3” and added it to the photo.  For embellishment, a cut file from Ali from last year on my silhouette, backed it with paper from the Retro Christmas 6×6 pad and added a star from this years kit.  I made up a journal card with stickers from Retro Christmas and added my journaling by hand.  Unless I’m adding words directly to a photo in photoshop, I hand write all of my journaling.  Faster, easier and I think the stories sometimes flow better.  And another one in the book!  I know what the story for today is going to be already !  Just need to pull it together (so happy about that!).
