Book, Birthday and Bag!

So here are some pages from my December Daily Mini!
The cover is still unfinished...but here's what I got!
Planning on adding a transparency page on the top and further embellishing with some doo dads...snowflakes, ribbon, etc...

Most pages are real simple.
I made extra special pages for the extra special days of December like my daughter and Mom's birthdays, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day!

I used a few brown bag envelopes I purchased long ago!
I used LOTS of my old make way for the new goodies I've placed on my Christmas Wish List!
Gotta replace the scrappy goodies!

I love the various sized dots!  I used Liquid Pearls (Ranger) in Platinum!  I need more, but Two Peas has sold out of the metallics!  They've got some yummy colors though!  I'm so excited to get those for Christmas!

I used one of those plastic zippered cases that housed the Christmas Rub-ons I used on this mini!  They're like those zippered pencil cases kids use in their binders!

And I just HAD to add some great texture with cardboard!
The days of the week were handwritten...EASY!

I used LOTS of fun ribbon trim on my envelopes edges!....CUTE!
And added tons of tags and tabs using scrap pieces of ribbon and cardstock, clothespins, paperclips, pieces of fabric and canvas!

I love those kraft envelopes by Maya Road!

And I made some cute pockets with scrap cardstock.
That red corner was a scrap piece of a die cut snowflake (see cover)!

I doodled around some of the numbers...

Lots of beautiful scraps put to good use here!

Mom's birthday pages...

he he.....

Speaking of birthays, Lil Sis had one a little bit ago!

Sweet Bel painted this fairy for her Aunt.
On the fairy's chest, she wrote "Anty"!  So cute!

I sewed this yoga mat tote for my sis!
Learned from this AWESOME book I borrowed from the library called


My sweet baby!

...posing...reminds me of Madonna...Vogue!

The family pics!

Well, I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  It's been quite busy here!
The snow in Seattle messed us up for a few days...but I'm back and I'm catching up!

Been cleaning out my craft room and various other areas around the house to get ready for Holiday company!  The house is starting to look presentable!
