December Daily Day 7- Instagram

We are officially one week into December Daily, and I'm still in the game! Woohoo! Seven days documented, 18 more to go! Everyone is getting into the spirit of December Daily around here- including my husband. You see, I have been getting my layouts done each night in the wee hours of the night, and I've been leaving them out on the counter over night (usually to let the glitter dry). I wasn't intentionally leaving them out for the hubby to see, but the other day he told me- "I've been enjoying reading your layouts (actually, I think he called them "things" but I knew what he meant) each morning. I've started looking forward to it every day." Aw! And that's why I'm excited to do this album- because I know we will ALL cherish these memories- it's not just "Mommy's Hobby".

And now for Day Seven. I was actually all prepared to document the story of my online shopping today, but as I picked up my girls from Grandma's house, I spotted Jules admiring the ornaments on Grandma's tree. Then Grandma (my mom) started showing her each ornament and telling a little story behind them. It was such a cute moment. I whipped out my iPhone and caught these pics with my camera and touched them up in instagram.

Close up of left side. Three instragram pics, plus a doodled border by me. Font for the {capture the moment} word art is Veteran Typewriter. 
Close up of right side. This page was created from a paper from my Candy Cane Lane Paper Pack (released tommorrow). I then printed out a paper flag from my Modern Merry Flag It pack and stapled it to the top. I used another sheet of paper from the Modern Merry Paper Pack to create the background for my journaling strips. I typed directly onto the paper, printed, and then cut it into strips. Paper products used include a paper doily and a thick glitter number sticker (EK Success).

Again, don't forget to enter the Candy Cane Lane Giveaway! Winner will be drawn tonight!
