I finally finished! This book took forever this year, but I’m glad that I pushed through and finished. I’m breaking it up into 3 posts, with 10 days each.
For this book, each day has 1 6×6 page, front and back. Some days I had more pictures so I added additional inserts. These were all smaller than 6×6 so that it was easier to tell when one day ended and another began. Most of the supplies are Apothecary from 2012 and 2013. There’s also a bit of October Afternoon 2012. If you have any specific questions about supplies or anything else, leave a comment and I’ll answer.
I put stickles in the middle of the flowers instead of messing with brads. Since I just use the back of the double sided paper for the next page, I don’t like to use brads.
Here you can see, I had a longer journaling story so I added an insert.
Loved writing directly on the photo. I think I want to do this more. I also loved “coloring” the wood veneers with the stickles.
We had so much fun at the Children’s Museum that I added 2 inserts.
Love the star border punch.
I wish I had more of this spider web transparency! I had one 6×6 piece left over from last year’s October Daily.
Note to self: Next time buy more than 1 sheet.
You do have to be mindful of covering the backs of the photos.
Bad phone pic, but I just love that I have a pic of Raptor scrapping with me.
Another insert. I found a haunted gingerbread kit at Joannes.
Playing with shaving cream in the water table. Why yes, we do live in Texas.
I didn’t have a pic for this day, so I took a screen shot of a facebook thread. I like to occasionally include things like this because I think it’ll be neat for Raptor to see what technology was like back in the day.
Another day I didn’t have a pic for, so I snapped a pic of this DVD case after the fact. We had been avoiding Princess movies, so it was a bit of a big deal when we finally caved.
Here’s a pic of Raptor getting her first eye exam! We were waiting for her eyes to dilate so I snapped a quick phone pic. I also colored some more wood veneers with stickles.
I’ll post days 11-20 on Wednesday!
