DECEMBER 3, 2013
Today’s December Daily inspiration came from three words my daughter said when we got home today. Elena greeted the tree as soon as we walked through the door, shouting “Hello, Christmas Tree!” That was it. That’s all I needed for our album. On a crazy work day with dinner and evening and bedtime routines, sometimes the easiest way to document the day is just to include a quote. You’ll see a lot of that in my album, especially if it’s a weekday!
For the third of December, I added a photo of a poinsettia that I took over the weekend and inserted a love letter on a 4×6 card. Both cards were made in Photoshop.
TODAY’S DECEMBER DAILY IN PROJECT LIFE PAGE
Half of the page is for December 2nd and the other half is for December 3rd.
Here is how it looks overall. And he is a detail of the love note for my daughter.
I realize that the image might be hard to read, so here is what I wrote:
LOVE LETTER |
I love you at three years old because everyday you say something that makes me smile. You have always been delighted by the world around you, always making friends wherever you go, and endlessly curious about how things work.
It’s only the third of December and you are so anxious for Santa to make a stop at our house. Last night at bedtime you asked me, “Why Santa no here yet?” I answered that he and the elves are still making toys. “Why he not done?” “Because there are millions of children around the world that he has to make presents for.” Your eyes got big, “Oh!” You seemed satisfied with that answer for now.
In your prayer last night you thanked God for Santa and your elf.
Love you always,
SUPPLIES | A complete list of supplies is in my post “December Daily 2013 Overview“. In addition, I made a free set of 3×4 printables of numbers 1-31. I made these for my own album and am sharing them with you. They are perfect for a daily project like this.
STAY IN TOUCH | I’ll be sharing most of my December days here on my blog. You can also get sneak peeks from me on Instagram.
YOUR TURN | Link up and show me how you’re incorporating Ali‘s December Daily project in yourProject Life album. Remember to submit the link to your post, not your home page. I’ll be visiting and commenting on all of your blogs to keep you encouraged throughout the month.
