December Daily "In Quotes"

Here's my little twist on December Daily. If you don't know what December Daily is you can check out Ali Edward's projects. It's basically documenting 1 story for every day leading up to Christmas. You can do it through pics, scrapbook pages, journaling, etc... Whatever works for you.

Anyway, since I knew taking daily pics was just not going to work for me, (believe it or not I'm horrible at remembering to take pics every day) I decided to do my pages with quotes. I'm trying to write down a quote from one of my girls every day & then scrapbook it on a 4x6 card. I think I'm going to end up with a really nice little album that I'm going to love reading every Christmas. I'm still trying to decide how I might print it out. I'll let you know what I decide to do.

So here are my pages so far.
I've chose Magical Christmas by Jady Day Studio & Flergs to scrap all of my quotes.



For those of you who might be wondering what Window Wonderlands is, it's an event where our little town decorates the downtown area & people sit in the windows of the little shops and are dressed up in old-timey costumes. The little businesses have hot cider, hot chocolate and cookies. There's music & even carriage rides. We've gone every year since we've lived here. It kinda reminds me of something you would see on Gilmore Girls in their little town....have you ever watched that?





On Day 5 I didn't get a quote but as I was pre-making my page hoping to hear something from my little girls I heard my hubby reading to them. It was perfect.


I should mention that Lucy is our cat, for those of you who might be wondering who Lucy is.

So that's what I have so far. I'll be sharing my pages weekly on my blog but if you want to see daily updates make sure you check out my facebook. I've been trying to post them there at the end of each day.

And Anita wanted to know if I was going to be making these into templates & selling them. Since I don't have time to put together a whole album right now I think what I'll do is turn a few of them into templates & then just give them away here on my blog & facebook for free! Sound good? I'll keep you posted.

Also, my friend Kami has a little December Daily freebie on her blog. It will help you with your daily pages or photos. Plus you might want to check out her December Daily photos for inspiration.


That's it for now!

What a stunning idea! I'm speechless. My girls are all grown and I SO wish I had jotted down the cute things they said when they were little. I tell all my friends with little kids now to do just that!

Hi Liz, just wanted to stop by and say thanks for the freebie you sent via the Daily Digi. Love the idea of using quotes for a December Daily album too.

Your quote pages are adorable!
Before you print, be sure to check the spelling of "hear" in the second line of your day 6 card.

Wonderful idea :) Wish I'd thought of it!

Kait-Thx for pointing that out. I'm going to go fix it right now!

I'm so glad you guys are inspired.

I'm enjoying this sooo much. I think I'm going to try & do more meaningful challenges/pages in 2012. Pages that I will really enjoy looking over when I'm older.
