My December Daily Album...FINALLY

So last year I discovered Ali Edward's December Daily concept too late, so I really REALLY wanted to get organized to do it this year. A couple of weeks ago I got all my numbers ready and last night I finally decided on an album and got started prepping it. I didn't get too far, but I got started and that's a big part of the battle.

SO here are my numbers, I created them with a combo of Photoshop and SCAL.


I decided to use an old book (my granddad's from the cottage) and alter it for my album, I love the look of altered books and this is my first one and I really love how it is shaping out so far. Here it is initially after I cut a window out of the cover:

I think that I am going to love doing this this year and I think I am going to love having something to work on through the holidays that isn't necessarily as big a commitment as sitting down to a new project every time. If you are doing a December Daily album and are sharing it anywhere, please share with me!!!

Brilliant idea! I've been trying to find the perfect album to house my December Daily journaling to no avail! I have a few vintage books left over from a project which will be perfect for my album. Thank you!!
