December Daily- Day 5

Today's December Daily focuses on a not fun topic, but one that is undoubtedly bound to happen in the month of December....a sick kid! My poor little Lilly started running a really high fever out of nowhere. She was fine Sunday night, and Monday morning when I got her out of her crib, she was running a temp of 102.3. I hate when the kiddos get sick. :-(

Here's my layout:

The left side is a page from my Very Vintage Christmas kit. I added the number five to the center of the page (font: Stencil) and applied a gold glitter style and a thick stroke. After I printed it out, I applied a generous amount of platinum Stickles glitter (are you noticing a trend here?) to the five. I then outlined the page with brown bakers twine that I bought on Etsy. I just applied a thin line of glue around the edge of the page and laid down the twine.

On the right side, I have a simple photo of my poor little sick baby. It's an iPhone pic, so I applied a little vintage tinting to make the graininess of the photo look intentional (action Back in the Day by M4H). The picture isn't quite as blue as it looks here. I'm struggling with my camera right now- it doesn't like me. Anyway, I then added brown bakers twine at the bottom of the photo, and then traced each letter of my title with blue bakers twine (okay between glitter and twine, I think it's clear what I'm currently obsessed with). I then stapled  a little paper flag to the bottom corner.

The title of this page is "Under the Weather". The journaling reads:
"The only bad thing about the holiday season is that coincides with another, not very fun season- flu season! Today Lilly woke up with a fever of 102.3. She hasn't been sick since she was three months old, and it just broke my heart to see her little droopy eyes. I kept her home with me today, and Jules too, so the three of us hung out. Jules was so attentive to Lilly- she was rocking her, trying to entertain her, and was by my side at all times while I took care of her. She kept saying "Probably her fever has gone down now." She was just itching to play with her sister. Lilly enjoyed the company too, and the few times she smiled today, she was smiling at her sister. I love how much they love each other."

I can't wait to send the photos for this album to the photo lab! I am struggling with the print quality of the photos right now. I also can't wait for my Amazon shipment to arrive with my page protectors. 

Now I'm off to create Day 6- Naughty or Nice?
