Yay! I'm finally sharing my final pages of my 2016 December Daily. It's been a process that's for sure.

Picking up where we left off... Day 10
I painted large wood veneers from an last year's Week in the Life™ kit. The red star paper is from Ali Edwards' December Daily® digital kit, which I had printed at Staples. The brown paper bag holds extra photos from a craft night I hosted. And I used a template for photos from our youth group's Christmas party.
Day 12 was a lazy day at home. I used a 2x2 page protector to add some simple photos of our normal lives during December. I used a clear tab, adhere with a glue runner, and added a tiny word from Tim Holtz.
Day 13 and 14 were days that I didn't have much. We stayed home for the most part and worked on getting the house cleaned for a few get togethers we were hosting. Another 2x2 page protector holds a cut up photo of our decorated home and for day 14, some drawings from the girls.
Day 15 was our Polar Express Pajama Party! I added a few photos from the day.
Day 16 we went on a double date with some new friends. Dinner and Christmas shopping!
Day 17 was my son's 10th birthday party. I added this picture that was taken in Walmart the day of his party.
Day 19 was the story of how we went on a play date with some friends. The middle divider is just an extra layer of "fluff" I used another piece of printed paper from Ali's digital kit and stamped some stars onto the back. I like the little pop the blue start gives against the black ones.
Day 20 was another lazy day at home resting up for Christmas weekend. We spent the day watching movies and vegging out. I didn't watch all 20 of these movies that day but I did watch all 20 during the month, so I thought it would be fun to include them in a template and use it for my day 20 story.
Day 21 I got my hair trimmed and we spent the day at home being silly and having fun.
Day 22 was a shopping day. I went to Aldi and Target and forgot to take pictures so I borrowed some from Google. And I added a small shopping/to do list on the side in 2x2 pockets.
Day 23 was the story about how we are gathered for Christmas weekend. I hosted my entire family here for the entire weekend! It was amazing. I used an old chipboard divider from an old Simple Stories album to diy that star divider. I cut the red star with my Silhouette and embossed it with red embossing powder. And I think this "gather" shaker pocket is probably my favorite thing from the entire album. I used a 6x8 page protector cut down, some sequins and confetti glitter from Target dollar spot (I showed that in my December Daily Haul Video) and the acrlyic word "gather" from one of Ali's monthly kits. I absolutely love it!!!
Day 24 I hosted two Christmas meals/parties. I put all of those photos in templates with the exception of a few which I enlarged to a 5x7 and added in the middle of the album.
Christmas Day! Another template to display my favorite photos from Christmas morning and a large photo of the beautiful mess.
Day 26 I included a photo of Lilli jumping on her new trampoline that Santa brought here. Love the fact that she's still in her new pajamas.
I took a break after the 26, as I was only planning to include up to the 25th. However, I decided to throw these pages in the end. Another template with our photos from New Year's Eve.
And there you have it folks. December Daily 2016 wrapped up and all done. I hope that you were inspired by my album. If your not already finished I wish you good scrafty vibes as you wrap this project up. And remember grace not perfection. Getting anyting documented is better than nothing.
