25 Days of December - the beginning

I am doing a version of December Daily based on a class I took at the Scrapbook and Cards today Crop that came to Thunder Bay in October! This is my first time attempting this sort of project. I am using many of the products that were included for the class, but adding stuff from my stash and pretty much doing my own thing. So although 99% of this project will be my own design, I am using many of the products included in the kit and it did originate as a class.

One of the places that I stuck close (but not exactly) to the original design was on the cover. I love the gold Luxe rub-ons from pink paislee that were included as well as this gorgeous "wooden" album by American Crafts.

That gorgeous wide twill ribbon was included, but I managed to find a smaller one that matches almost exactly at Target of all places! You will see it on future pages.

Here is the title page. I decided to put this photo of my two handsome boys right on the front page. I was so thrilled that they cooperated to get this photo. We don't do a Santa photo every year, but I was glad to get this one since I was still in need of a photo to send with our Christmas Cards! Also, the photo was taken at the end of November, so the cover seemed like a good place for it. Just love that owlie paper that was included in the kit!
Hope to be back soon to share a few more pages!
Thanks for visiting!
