December Daily 2016

I finished up my December Daily 2016 and, not gonna lie, I'm a little sad to be done! I know I could continue until... whenever! Maybe I should officially start Project Life?? Pocket pages are addicting!

Anyway, I've always finished up my December albums on Christmas Day so that's what I did this year too. We took a bunch of pictures and videos in the morning, lounged around the rest of the day, so while the kids napped I finished up the album and then after they went to sleep I filmed through:

To help make this project as easy breezy as possible, I put all of my Christmas 'things' into two desk organizers and they sat at the end of the dining room table all month. Whenever I had a spare moment I worked on the album which was easy to do with all the supplies right there, cleaned up quickly, and then went on with the day!

Here is a link ( to a zip file with several cut files, journaling spots, and the flaps!

I loved making this album interactive with tabs, flaps, ribbons, strings, pockets, letters, and more.
