December Daily - Pages 7-15

 Today I have some more pages of my December Daily album to share.  All the papers are by MME and have been inked with walnut stain distress ink.  For the 7th I covered some number and letter stickers with red stickles to match the red glitter swirl on the paper.  I made my Son's costume for his Christmas Pantomime this day - 2 hours of painting leopard spots on some old pyjamas LOL!  I have tucked a tag under the photo giving details.
 I knew we had a lot happening on the 8th so I made a larger page with a fold out piece so that I could add more photos.
 Sorry about all the blanking out - I don't like to put pictures of other people on without permission :).  The 8th was my Son's school Christingle ceremony.  I used some glitter alphabet stickers to spell out Christingle and the "8th".  All the small children in the audience are given a Christingle orange too so the middle photo is my little girl holding hers!  I used some red velvet ribbon to separate the daytime events from the night time event and also because the Christingle orange has a red ribbon around it.  The evening was my husband's work Christmas party so there is a photo of us dressed up ready to leave.  I have created a pocket behind the picture of my daughter for a journalling tag.
 I used a date tag from an MME die cut sheet for the date on the 9th and recycled a gold gift voucher envelope.  I have used some Dovecraft stickers to write "learn songs" across the envelope and I added a blossom and brad to create a little handle to open the envelope with.
 Inside are the lines and songs my Son had to learn for his Christmas pantomime.
 On the 10th I took my daughter to her nursery school Christmas party - she had such a great time and was amazed when Father Christmas arrived.  I love this photo of her with Father Christmas - she was actually talking to him when it was taken but I think it looks like she is just in total awe at seeing him!  This is why I gave the page the title "wonder" :).  The number 10 was cut from some MME paper too.
 No photo for the 11th.  My daughter helped Daddy find a suitable branch in our garden to use as a Christmas tree for our dining room so I have written about that and added some festive foliage and flowers.  I used Tim's scrollwork on the edge die along the edge for a bit of extra interest.
 On the 12th we decorated the branch Christmas tree from the garden so I have a picture of it and did my journalling on a circular tag and hung it like a bauble at the side of the photograph.  I have covered it in glossy accents to look more like a bauble.
 The 13th was my daughter's Christmas play at nursery so I had a few photos for this day so another fold out page was in order.  She was dressed as a snowflake so I used the Tim Holtz snow flurry die along the edge of the paper.
I attached a photo of my little snowflake onto a piece of cardstock with a fold at the right hand side so that I could attach it to the flap but it still allowed the flap to open.  
 On the page under the flap there is a photo of all the children (again blacked out for privacy) and I added some plastic snowflakes from my stash.  The sentiment is from the MME die cut sheet.  The children sang this song at the end and it was just adorable so I had to add this sentiment to this page!  I still had another photo I wanted to add of myself and my daughter after the play so I added it to a piece of paper and created some ribbon hinges so that it could fold up beneath the flap on the right!  When you fold the photo up there are the tickets for the performance on the back.
The 14th was my Son's turn to perform :).  They performed Alice the Musical so I wrote Alice with glitter stickers.  There is a pocket under the photo for a journalling tag which I added a circular sentiment too that acts as a tab to pull the tag out with.

 The tag has a close up of my Son on one side and my journalling about the play on the reverse.  Hehehe, what a cute snow leopard!
On the 15th my husband and I walked to our village church along with my Son's school for their Christmas sing a long.  This is one of my favourite school events and I go every year.  They sing traditional carols, songs from their Christmas play and some modern Christmas songs too - it's so much fun!  I used a strip of music paper to add the number 15 on and simply added the song sheet from the church and some foliage, berries and flower to the left.

Phew!  Are you still with me LOL??  If you are thank you so much and I hope you've enjoyed my December Daily pages!  I'll share some more pages tomorrow!  Thanks for looking! x
