December Daily 2016: Day 10 & 11
I'd thought the story from day ten would be very different, but I ended up spending the day eating way too many lemon drops and listening to Jim Dale read Harry Potter, and well, that kind of sealed the deal for feeling the need to write my love letter to books.
I planned to use the actual photo of the book cover on the left hand side, but it really didn't feel right, so I quickly drew my own sorcerer's stone, and added a Christmas quote from that book.
I had two large photos I wanted to add to the right hand side, so I made the page a flip out, allowing me to tuck my letter underneath.
Now, to stop eating so many lemon drops...
Day eleven is a love letter to winter cleaning, a tradition, or habit, I've had for as long as I can remember.
I wanted to include before and after photos (no matter how unflattering), but didn't want to take up too much space, to I tucked them behind the first photo with index tabs as the pulls. Easy Peasy!
I added my letter to the following page, and then a few close up shots of the treasures I unearthed and reflected on while cleaning.
Oh cleaning, it's so love/hate between us.
I'd planned on using the 6x8 page protector with 2x2 square grid, but some misprinting knocked that option out. Still, I'm glad it pushed me to do something different, because stamping Ali Edwards' Pendelton red orange ink on salmony pink paper...new favorite combination.
