December Daily: Day 1-3...

What had seemed easy in imagination was rather hard in reality.- L. M. MontgomeryI decided to do a December Daily album this year...on Dec 1st. I really should have worked on it before then to get all the Stuff arranged, but this year it will be a day to day thing. I worked this weekend on Days 1 thru 3 and hope to get more pages done each night this week until I am caught up. The hard part was gathering supplies that sort of go together to create a cohesive unit. I am still working on getting each day into just a 2 page spread so the book flows. It may be choppy for the first week or so though.Inside the front cover...

Day 1, Snow Day!!!

Lift the Photo to find the journaling...

Day 2, All about Connor's Annual Ornament...

This year's ornament...a Glittery Glass T-Rex...

Day 3, our BSU Bronco Football Snowman...
