December Daily 2013: Part 1, Cover and the first few pages

Today I have some of my December Daily album to share with you. I ended up actually starting on November 29th (the day after Thanksgiving.) We bought our tree that day and also began holiday decorating. That is such a big part of Christmas, and it really helps put us in the Christmas spirit, so it seemed silly not to include it.

The Cover

 I blogged about how I made this cover earlier in the week, you can find that post HERE.

First Pages
This is  a transparency with an embellishment grouping glued to the 
center. I used Zing Gold Metallic embossing powder on the wood
veneer "Joy" sentiment.

I wanted this ornament photo to peek out from behind

back of transparency and first page

I just love these ornaments so much!

Highlights-decorating the tree, playing around with camera functions,

I am off to a field trip today with my daughter's fourth grade class. It should be fun, I am so thankful that I can go to these kinds of things for the kids. I am really hoping to get some great photos. I will be back tomorrow with week 48 of Project Life to share.  Still can't believe the year is almost up. Only 4 weeks left to go.
