December Daily - A peek inside

Hello! Are you feeling this I-like-Christmas-but-why-does-it-have-to-be-this-busy-need-to-bake-more-cookies-need-to-get-the-presents-need-more-time-for-snuggling-and-reading-with-my-girl-oh-no-not-a-cold-oh-no-enjoy-this-time-of-the-year kind of feeling already? Ha, I do. But I am in great christmas mood this year. And I love every second of watching my girl enjoying this special time. 
But to the peek! Today there is a post about ideas for December Daily Albums on the Echo Park blog and a page of my album is up. This is an inside peek of my album, showing day 12 and 13:

Because my album is made from paper bags, every page has several pockets for photo mats, journaling etc. On this page, I created a little pocket for a tag, a pocket for journaling and photos in the middle and the pocket for larger photos between this and the next page.

I wanted to keep everything quite simple and not too busy, because with photos and journaling it will be busy enough. And when I think that it needs to be embellished more, I can add matching elements when adding the photos.

So, this was one page. I will start showing the other ones when December begins. Can't wait!

Have a beautiful day and thanks for visiting!

Hugs and Love,

Love your traditional colors and your philosophy of "less is more and I can add more later if I need to"! Sounds like a great idea!
I learned about the December Daily idea too late to try and do it this year - I kinda want to think about it all December long to start and then I'll have a better feel for it for next year!
Again - thanks for sharing! I can't wait to see more!

I love your traditional colors and your "less is more and I can always add more later if I need to" philosophy! Sounds like a great idea! I'm with you about feeling a little overwhelmed already - I still have got to make my daughter's advent calendar and figure out what's going into all those spaces...but it is a good kinda busy!
Thanks for sharing your DD!
