2011 December Daily Foundation Pages

Beware - this post has 'tons' of photos, so I will keep the 'words' to a minimum.

December Daily Foundation Pages...I have already posted my 'gathering' stage and showed the 2 albums that I already had in my stash and a few of you weighed in and I was in agreement. The red Studio K album was the winner. I found out that I could expand the album and it gave me plenty of room for bulky embellishments and keepsake items.

I will show you the two page spread for each day and then below, I have close-up views showing some of the details of certain pages.

So, now for my foundation pages...Here they are. Opening - introduction page. I will probably put a small photo of me and hubby (we are empty-nesters) and then a calendar sticker of December. And below is a closer view.

I created this calendar grid in microsoft excel in red and then just printed in onto cardstock I will fill in the events of the month as we go.

The 11th is our wedding anniversary so I will probably add in an extra page depending on what photos I get of our celebration of 7 years married...

I gave myself 2 1/2 spreads for Christmas Day. My mom and dad will be in town so we will be having a large family celebration. Sure to have lots of photos that I want to share in my DD.

Below are the single pages to show up closer to see some of the details.

I have lots of embellishments, ribbons, etc to add as we go. I realize that a few pages look really boring right now but they won't stay that way for long. Ok, now to wait for Dec. 1st...that will be the hard part. But I am so glad that I have the foundation of my DD done. It will make completing this album all the more possible.

ok so I want to say so much, but here's my favorite that you used scrabble tiles, still one of my most loved embellies, also I so wish I had thought of the fold out page, what a great way to get extra space, and love love the red boxes. Can't wait to see what it looks like once it's filled up.
