DD 2012: Dec 2nd

Posted on 1 Comment

Day 2!  I just finished Day 3 – I am not in love with it; it may change but it’s in the book so probably not.  I do have pictures printed & in the sleeves thru yesterday – so I am calling that a win!

Day 2…. The left side page had 2 versions – sometimes you just gotta rip it apart and start over.  I didn’t completely rip apart, but I did take off the Lego box picture, reprint & add some more goodies.

Here is a before & after close-up of the left side.

I printed all of my pictures & really thought that I wanted a full 4×6 box picture.  Turns out it was completely overpowering – I tried adding some washi to the edges…. that didn’t work either.  Just a disaster.

A MUCH smaller picture, a new background (that is just one layer – from the My Mind’s Eye Accessories Pad); a stamped date & different washi tape.  SO much better!  I love it now.

As for the day – I wanted at some point to include the Lego Advent calendar (Star Wars for us this year).  Andy is having a great time with it & it is helping a ‘bit’ with the “How long until Christmas?” constant questioning.

We also hit up the mall & tried to have Andy shop with each of us separately.   I succeeded – while Dad was trying on clothes – but Andy spilled the beans in the car on the way home.  When Kevin had him they would pick out something & Andy would run to find me to show it to me so they ended up with nothing…. well they did get a Vanellope von Schweetz “nap toy”  (she is a character in Wreck-It Ralph).

I added in an Ali Edwards Father’s Day themed stamp on this page – so much of both sides were related to Dad it just seemed right.

Check back soon for the rest of December 2012!
