365 Week 43

Not sure why but I am really struggling with the motivation to do these pages at the moment. In the past I have made sure they were done and ready to go on a Thursday night... but here I am at 11pm on Saturday finally just getting done. It's annoying as after 43 weeks it is great to look back over my progress and see our year reflected back to me. It would be unthinkable to not finish off the next 9 weeks.

Happy Halloween

I've been doing a bit of blog surfing lately and came across some cool Halloween stuff. We don't do Halloween- there's something just plain wrong about going around and demanding lollies from strangers. But that said the opportunity to play around and make some fun stuff was just too hard to resist.....

For the teachers, thee bat candy covers are from Skip to my Lou (some seriously cool stuff on there, have a look around). The labels are from Love Manor. There's Hershey bars under there. The Devil and the Spider are from Owlsorts see link below....

These are for the kids and me you can find all the details on Owlsorts....

Daily December: Before

I put together my Daily December Album so now it's ready and waiting....

I constructed the covers myself because I wanted the pages to be 6 x 12in so the covers are 6.5 x 12.5in Chipboard covered with Patterned paper.
Paper:Left BG (Basic Grey), Right and circles: MM (Making Memories) and Kaisercraft wood embellishment- inked and dimensional magic'd.

Top Paper: MM

Top Paper:MM same with the bottom.

Left paper: CC Right Paper: CC (Mr Campy) Wood embellishments Kaisercraft. Ink Staz-on and then covered with Dimensional Magic.

All papers used are double sided or folded in half and back-to-backed.

Last year I added the numbers to the pages before I started but I want a bit more flexibility this year and I'll probably switch the papers around a bit as well and I may need to add some more in. I have a little kit bag of Teresa Collins journalling spots and numbers, Kaisercraft numbers and MM Circles for embellishments like the ones on the cover. I'll add some other stuff along the way (I keep all my Christmas themed product together in one place). I also have a punching template so I can easily place the holes for the book rings in the same place on any additional pages.
