Mini Album for my Mother-In-Law

Terri, this is what I have so far...tell me what you think? I know that the pictures aren't all that great but they will give you a pretty good idea. Some of these colors aren't my usual colors, it has been fun playing outside of the box.

December Daily Album in Progreess

I have been following along with Ali Edwards in documenting the Christmas Holidays with a December Daily Album. I made mine over a month early (see post below) to have it ready once Dec. 1st came along. I have gotten the first fives day documented and completed and am in the process of completing days 6 thru 10. (the be current) I am having so much fun documenting the little things in our lives that go along with Christmas. I look forwarding to the upcoming days to see what they will bring to my little book as well.

Soccer Weekend with my Nieces and Nephew

A few Saturday's ago my husband and I stopped by the soccer field where my niece Sierra and my nephew Joshua were playing. My mom and Dad were there with another friend of our's Judy. Gabrielle the youngest of the three children was just having a good time. She isn't old enough yet to be on a soccer team, but that didn't stop her from having fun. Here she is with her mama Dawn (my sister-in-love). Dawn is married to my brother Sam, which I don't know why but he wasn't in any of the picture I took that day. Anyway, I wanted to share some fun pictures from that day. Here is part of my family...First here's is Dawn and Gabrielle...

My December Daily Album

I have decided to follow along with Ali Edwards in doing a December Daily Album for the 25 days of Christmas. I have put together my album, as she suggested, ahead of time so that I can just add my photos and journaling each day of December. I am not quite finished but have a great start. I thought it would be difficult to create the album ahead of time not knowing what photo or journaling or 'keepsake' would go on what page, but Ali recommended you just make the book and then work with what you have. Once I got started it became easier to create a blank canvas in order to be ready to begin my December Daily Album on Dec. 1st. To tell you the truth, I am so excited about it, I truly can't wait until I get to start filling it up. I hate to have to wait almost 4 weeks to start it. Here is the front cover
