December Daily 2015: December 3rd – 5th~

It’s the weekend which means I can catch up, because the end of our week was crazy busy.

It all began with my Dad’s 70th birthday on Thursday.

Not only did we have a party, but also a parade.

Okay, the parade was actually the Town Of Crewe’s Christmas parade. He he.

December 3rd~

My Mom is the Mayor of Crewe, so she, Dad and Hartly all rode on the Town’s float.

And one little girl had the best time.

I felt it was important to include Tinsel, our Elf On The Shelf, since he was being a bit naughty.

Thankfully nothing was broken. Yet.

I mentioned earlier that Holden has been sick all week.

That lead to a big discussion about whether he should push the button on the North Pole Communicator possible contaminating it with his germs.

Needless to say we let him have his turn.

December 4th~

Until there was opera singing involved then Hartly quickly stepped in.

Speaking of Tinsel Hartly has decided to trust him to take her Christmas card and Wish List to Santa on tonight’s North Pole run.

December 5th~

She carefully placed her envelope next to Tinsel in hopes he’ll remember it.

Good luck with that!

I’m not sure I trust that little guy, but she does.

So now I am caught up.

For now.

2015 December Daily~

It’s hard to believe, but it’s that time again.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…Christmas!!

Which also means it’s time to start thinking about and more importantly working on my 2015 December Daily album.

This year I decided not to purchase a December Daily kit.

Who am I kidding?

This year I didn’t purchase multiple December Daily kits.

I did purchase the new Under The Tree collection from October Afternoon and the Simple Stories 6×8 Holiday Snap album to add to my extensive Christmas stash.

And I might have picked up a few odds and ends as well, but the bulk of this year’s album will come from my stash.

The cover~

2015-Cover

I love this holiday album from Simple Stories, so I chose papers from both October Afternoon and Pretty Little Studio to embellish it.

I stamped a Tim Holtz Santa Stamp onto text paper to play off the text on the binding of the album.

A close-up~

I added Wink Of Stella to Santa’s beard and trim, so he sparkles.

I even made my own reindeer charm using Modge Podge.

Some of you know that I don’t usually have great luck using any type of liquid adhesive, but this was simple, easy and quick.

And I managed not to glue anything to the table or to myself. Yay!

The calendar~

Calendar

Once again the fabulous Marie from Stitch In Time has provided free December calendar printables.

Isn’t this one adorable?

I added a few can’t miss dates to mine.

So will you be making a December Daily?

If so, let me know.

I’d love to see what you make.

I Am A Princess~

Well….maybe I’m not, but Hartly sure is.

While planning our Disney 2014 trip she repeatedly told us that Rapunzel was the princess she most wanted to meet.

I believe her exact words were she just had to see her!

So, I made sure to get Fast Passes to do just that.

My layouts~

Rapunzal

I-am-a-princess

There was much talk of long blonde hair, frying pans and even talk of a Snuggly Duckling outing.

A few close-ups~

Rapunzal-Close I-am-a-princess-close

These are the first pages I’ve made in a long, long time.

I’m talking months!!

I feel like they’re missing something or that I just quite haven’t gotten my groove back.

Guess that means I need to get busy making more layouts, right?

Just One More Ride~

It’s been a while since I posted this layout or any layout for that matter.

Travis was fooling around while the kids rode Cinderella’s Magical Carousel.

For the umpteenth time.

My layout~

One-More-Ride

Ashlyn and Hartly could ride this all day long.

Actually I think they’ve tried.

Many, many times.

Put Some Oomph In it~

Would you believe me if I told you I made this layout way back in February at the Doodles Retreat?

All but the finishing touches.

It’s just been sitting waiting for me to blog about it and add it to my Disney 2014 album.

Since I’ve been spending the month of June coloring, I haven’t had time to even think of starting a layout.

So, this is the next best thing.

Right?

My layout~

IMG_6837

My Prince Charming is trying to pull the sword out of the stone while the kids all ride the carousel at Disney World.

Isn’t he handsome?

Which is good since he wasn’t quite strong enough to get that sword out and become the ruler of England.

A few close-ups~

I used Simple Stories Say Cheese I and II Collections to make my layout.

Now I’m hoping to find a moment or two to work on a layout.

Hopefully, I’ll have better luck than Travis did.

He he.

Happy Father’s Day!!

This little guy just makes me smile.

Meet Milton from Stampingbella.

My card~

Favorite

I colored him for Day 19 of the 30 Day Color Challenge hosted by Kathy Racoosin from The Daily Marker.

30 Day Color Challenge 2

For whatever reason I thought he’d be perfect for my Father’s Day card for my Dad.

A close-up~

Favorite-Close

Especially when paired with my sentiment.

The inside~

Favorite-Inside

Funny, right?

At least I think so.

My sister, Amy, might not agree.

I saw the phrase somewhere online Friday.

I think it might have even been a stamp, but I can’t remember where I saw it or even find it now.

So, I simply used Photoshop and my printer to create my version of it.

Underneath Milton is a printed paper from Simple Stories I Am collection which lists many of the qualities that I think my Dad instilled in me.

That makes my card a little sweet and a lot sassy.

Just like me.

I used~

One Fish, Two Fish, Three Fish~

Okay, I’ve lost count.

There are just too many fish on my Some Odd Girl Community Crop H2O Challenge: Use water color pencils, critters that live on/in the water, rain drops, or anything that makes you think H2o on your project.

My card~

One Fish Two Fish

Luckily this adorable little guy was on one of the three Some Odd Girl stamp set that I own.

So, I stamped him repeatedly and got busy coloring him to create my little H2O scene.

A close-up~

Fishy-Fishy-Close-Up

I used small flat sequins from Papertrey Ink to mimic bubbles and I gave each fish a bit of sparkle with a Wink Of Stella pen.

There’s still a bit of time left to join in the fun and I’m hoping to get one more project done.

30 Day Some Odd Girl

Let’s just hope we don’t have a repeat of last night where a massive amount of H2O falling from the sky knocked our power out. Yikes!

I used~

Some Odd Girl Clever Kittys Stamp Set, Simple Stories I Am 6×6 Paper Pad, Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle Dies, Papertrey Ink Sequins, Wink of Stella, Copics
