I know I’m a bit late in sharing my December Daily, but I have a bit of a rationale. This was my first time doing the project, and I waited until the end of December to print all my photos. Then I started Jan Term at my college, so I really only had time to scrapbook when I had down time. On the bright side, I found scrap booking really therapeutic and calming in the midst of law school applications and stress. So, I’m so so happy I did the project, that I completed it in a somewhat timely manner, and that I now get to share it with all of you! My sister also participated, so I’m hoping that she’ll let me share her book when she’s done with it (she’s WAY more creative than I am, so I’m sure it’ll be amazing).
Anyway, I’m going to do a series of posts where I show my entire album. This post is dedicated to days 1-5 (week 1 of December). I’m so excited to share my project because I spent a lot of time on it, and I am really pleased with how it turned out! So, here are are photos of my album, front inside cover, and first five days.
I got the white 6×8 album from Ali Edwards originally, and got my sister the red. However, once I got them in the mail, I liked the red better and the white seemed more like my sister, so we traded. I’m happy we did! I love the vibrant red. It just feels like December! On the inside front cover I used a silver glitter star sticky, a word strip, and a cute 25 button from her main kit.
For my intro page, I used a transparency that says, The most wonderful time of the year, layered over a plaid page. I adhered a small white tree on the plaid page! I really liked this combo, and preferred to use it to open my album rather than try to figure out where it would fit in later. All supplied came in Ali’s Main Kit 2015.
Days 1 and 2 of December flew by, and I didn’t get as many photos as I wanted. However, I screen-shotted one of my duty partner’s Snapchats, and used it. I also used photos from my duty team’s outing to get a hall Christmas tree. On the back of the Christmas tree photo, I adhered a piece of scrapbook paper, and did a little journaling using one of Ali’s 3×4 cards.
As far as my favorite weeks in December go, the first two weeks were a bit tricky because I was still in classes, and was quickly approaching first the LSAT then finals. To say this made for exciting photo material would be a lie. I was honest, though, about what my days looked like! On the 3rd, I went and got coffee while it was raining, and there were leaves everywhere! I also got a ton of mail from law schools, so I took a picture. That way, years from now, I can look back and remember the chaotic time that was law school admissions. I also received my only black Friday purchase, this bow bracelet from Kiel James Patrick. I was SO excited! The fourth was the night before my LSAT, so I spent the evening watching Gilmore Girls with my close friend, and drinking peppermint tea, trying to calm my nerves.
The 5th was the day of my LSAT. I felt good about it, and was so relieved it was over. Though I still didn’t get the score I necessarily wanted, I was happy that I did my best. In the evening, my school newspaper had its staff dinner. My friend, Evelyn and I took the LSAT in the morning, and celebrated our work at the paper in the evening (she’s Co-Editor-in-Chief!) Once the LSAT was over, it was time to buckle down for finals, but I thoroughly enjoyed the night after the LSAT (wine was very much included).
So, that wraps up the first five days of December! I hope you enjoy following along with this project as much as I enjoyed doing it!
