December Daily: Day One

I am so very excited to be participating in Ali Edwards, December Daily this year. I will be working on this project while continuing to document our life with Project Life.

My plan is to follow Ali's approach and focus on one story a day. I really think this will leave me with more than enough content for both projects.

You can see that I'm keeping this really, really simple. For the last two years I've created an album with every intention of participating and not one single page was completed. Ironically, this year I have no album but am jumping in with both feet.

I have purchased the Studio Calico December Daily kit and due to manufacturing delays I am waiting for my album to arrive. I actually find this very freeing as there is no pressure to build my album. Sometimes I can tend to overthink these things and then end up not telling the story.

So for now, I will simply focus on building my daily pages and when the album comes in have a little bit of creative fun. I am using the following Ali Edwards Products for all my foundation pages: 2011 December Daily 6x8 Overlays and Holiday Word Art Vol. 3.

I hope to share here as I complete the pages so I expect these posts to be short & sweet. Are you playing along? I would love to see your projects!

I love the tree shot. The lights are just perfect in it. : )

I'm doing a Dec Daily as well and could hardly wait to start my album either this year.

That photo is GORGEOUS! I was going to do the December Daily also, but just didn't have time to get it together. :( I'm starting my Project Life in January (Possibly Dec 15).
