MY December Memory Book

Hi everyone,

It certainly was a busy week last week.  I was out of town on Friday so I didn't have a chance to make a post.  I hope you all enjoyed seeing the Christmas cards.  I am now busy addressing them and getting them ready to put in the mail.  I have been busy working on MY December Memory Book.  It is a scrapbook of everyday in December.  I am doing it with the ladies from the Facebook page School of Scrap.  Everyday there is a new prompt for the day so it gives you a challenge in what to scrap that day.  And of course you still scrap any special moments of your own.  This is free so if you are interested just check their Facebook page.  I will be showing you my cover, Day 1, Day 2, Day3 and some extra ideas.  Enjoy!

This is the cover.  I plan to put my favorite picture of all December on the front after I finish the album.  I love the jingle bells.  I used a 6x8 Simple Stories Snap Album.

Day 1.  The prompt for today was to make a list 10 things you LOVE about December.  This is the front of the page.
This is the back of Day 1 with pictures of some of the things I love about December.

Day 2.  The prompt was to use one of your supplies that you hoard.  I used 3 pages for this day.  Some of the things I hoard are the stick pins on page 1.

I hoard the little pictures I print on my ZINK hAppy on page 2.

And on page 3 I hoard the larger picture on the bottom of the page.  I took the picture 5 years ago and just love it!

Day 3.  The prompt for today was smiling faces.  I certainly had to include a picture of Merlin's smiling face and of my mom's dog, Bingo, who we inherited when she passed.

Page 2 of Day 3 includes pictures of dear friends we celebrated with.  I really like the wooden embellishments on this page.  I made my seasonal "Chex Mix" and it always makes my family smile.

I thought it was a good idea to add a weather page to the book.  It is fun to look back and see what the weather was like in December.
Three index pages came in the album, so I divided the album into 3 sections.
I have really enjoyed making this album and it has been alot of fun.  I just finished Day 9 today so on Friday I will post the next three days.  I hope everyone has a great week and thank you for checking out my blog.
