December has rolled in a bit quicker than I thought it would! I will admit that while I don’t have all of my December Daily foundation pages complete I am about halfway through the month. I hope to get the rest squared away this week.
This year I will not be printing my photos daily or even weekly but will wait until the end of the month and place my order through Shutterfly. I love their print quality and the quick turn around. Since I will have my pages ready and journaling complete I will just have to add the photos once they arrive.
My photo for December 1st is of the girls opening their Haribo advent calendar. This year is a little bittersweet as it is our last year here in Germany. There are some things we will miss and the Haribo calendars have become a tradition for us.
This was about take 5 and the reindeer antlers were their idea! I rarely get a photo with them both looking at the camera and this was just not my day.
Here is the foundation page for the photo:
Because I didn’t leave any room for journaling I will be adding a journaler by Ali Edwards that I purchased from Designer Digitals last year. I like to add these when I am feeling long winded or want some extra space for photos.
My December 2nd photo is of my favorite mug filled with glühwein in front of the Christmas tree. I like Christmas tree bokeh!
And my foundation page for the day is this:
The colors are off a bit in this one as the background is more of a pinkish color. I am using Crate Papers Peppermint Collection for most of my album this year and I was having a bit of a hard time with it but have come to love the feel of it all. The snowflakes are from the Peppermint Collection as well. I had a hard time photographing the first set of pages as it has been super foggy here nearly every day and that means no morning sun for my photos.
That’s all I have for now. I hope to continue my December Daily updates every few days. I always have good intentions of sharing my pages but never get around to doing so but will make a honest effort at posting them here.
