Days Eight. Nine. Ten. are ready...they are not perfect...they are not even close but they are mine, they are done and years from now when I look back all that will matter is that I did it. I will enjoy looking at the pages and reminiscing years that have passed.
Day Eight is pretty simple and the back is incomplete. I may fill it in and I may not.
You can see my Starbucks sleeve underneath that is used for Day Nine. The upper right hand corner is a Studio Calico Journal Card from the Magical collection. I will be honest, I am not sure if I like it or atleast I don't like how it looks in this layout. But...as I work to embrace my imperfections I am leaving it right where it is. I would love to see how Ali would use these overlays... hint, hint!
Day Nine. It finally snowed and stuck to the ground. YAHOO!!! Let it snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow! I celebrated with a Starbucks Peppermint Mocha and this is what I documented on Day Nine.
Used a merry & bright overlay from Ali Edwards I think I looked for a link to them in designer digitals earlier this month and could not find it. They are a few years old. The 9 and the J used are from some letter stickers I got at TJ Maxx a couple years ago. I used American Crafts glitter brads (had in my stash from a few years ago) to connect the Starbucks sleeve. which lifts to expose by Peppermint Mocha. The starbucks "flap' idea came from Ali Edwards December Daily 2012...she did a really cool flap and I remembered LOVING it.
Then there was Day Ten...time is going very fast. I should probably start sewing more than I already am. Again here I embrace imperfection with the image of G being a bit grainy. I converted it to black & white and let it be. I just wanted to capture him right then and I did that...who cares if the shot isn't perfectly lit, exposed, etc.
Loving and accepting what is with this project!
