Catching up a bit...

I'm trying to hang in there with my December Daily, folks. It's a battle, but I'm determined to win it! Here are a few from the past few days - Days 3, 4 and 5.

Day 3:
For this one I wanted to use the picture of the holly predominantly so it is my entire page on the right. I loved the snow hitting the tops of the red berries. It totally made me happy. To add a little interest as well as to have a place to put the "3", I used a transparent overly from BasicGrey's Take Notes from the Jovial line. It was just enough to add a little flair to the page without overwhelming it.
Then, so you couldn't see the adhesive through the transparency, I did the same thing on the other side and just matched it up.

Source List: BasicGrey Jovial papers, transparent overlay, Olio Rub-on; BasicGrey Basics paper (white) and Mini monos (colored brown); BasicGrey Pyrus Micro monos (colored); Zig pen; Uni-ball pen; Fiskars punches.

Day 4 and 5:
For Days 4 and 5, I really didn't have many photos - in fact I was doing well to have these! - so I really only used one side of the page for the day. After I was finished I realized I didn't have much room for a title, so I created this scalloped semi-circle page to fit in between the. It ended up being just the right amount of space for a title and added some fun interest with its unusual shape.

Very Cute, I'm always looking for good ideas for "just because" cards!

Such cute cards Kelly! Great idea to emboss the telephones to make them shiny.
