December Mini 2013

Hi - sorry for the lapse in posting, I'm attempting a December Daily-ish album this year and time seems to go by so fast with doing stuff with my kids and general day to day household things as well.  Just a busy time period.

Yesterday I finally sat down and worked on the cover of my album.  Two HOURS later I had to stop.  Kids were waking up and I was getting overwhelmed.  I've never attempted an album like this, so I wasn't really sure what I wanted to do.  My album is a Simple Stories chipboard Sn@p 6x8 album in red that I picked up at Michael's.  I didn't realize until I opened it that it came with paper, chipboard pages and clear pages. 

Here's my cover:

I have a bunch of supplies in an iris case that I collected the last month or so.  I have some Silent Night from October Afternoon, a few items from Crate Paper's line (the name is not coming to me right now), some Chic Tags, Ali Edward stamps, and a few other odds and ends.

The paper circles are from the Silent Night 8x8 pad and the lined paper is actually one of the paper pages that came in the album that I decided to use for my stamped title.  All the inks are Stampin' up and I inked the edges of everything in Chestnut Roan chalk ink.  The white splatters are from a white Mr. Huey mist/ink.  Sequins are from Lawn Fawn.

Thanks for stopping by!
