Project Life, December

Catching up on some Project Life posting.  One more week and 2011 is complete!  Loved the Turquoise Kit, but I'm kind of ready to start Clementine!

I made this insert a few weeks ago using Ali Edwards layered templates.  I didn't participate with the December Daily project, although I would have loved to.  It takes all I have to keep up with PL, so I highly doubt I would have completed a layout a day for a whole month.  I decided to snap some pics around the house and just include a little insert for the month of December.  I love how it turned out.
Week of December 5-11

Poor Dan celebrated his birthday on Sunday, but unfortunately B and I spent most of Saturday night puking.  Made a little collage of the pics we took on our Christmas Light drive. (got to wear sweats and stay in the car for that!)
also jotted down a few thoughts from the week and a few moments I wanted to remember with some cell phone pics to go along with the story.
Love these Ali Edwards Long Journalers  They make it so easy to record some extra info/pictures without taking up a ton of space.
Week of December 12-18
Week of December 19-25
Full spread of week of Christmas.  Ended up with 2 inserts.
Included our Christmas card we sent out with a gift bag I received.  Loved the Kraft paper and cute little Santa.  (6x7.5 so I just used Becky's 6x12 page protector and snipped off a few inches.)
Love, love, love the "joy" and "peace" cut outs.  They actually came attached to a Christmas card I received and I knew immediately when I opened it up that I wanted to use them in my album.  The joy is glittery and the peace is gold metallic.  Love them.  I am totally going to keep an eye out for future Christmas cards to pull stuff from!
Extra Photos in a "design f" page protector.  Just snipped off the two right columns.  I think I want to add a few stickers or a little journaling?  Not sure I am liking them so plain.  

Anyway, that is all!  I have a ton of elf on a shelf pictures from the month and I really want to do something with them.  The kids had so much fun with Shelfy, so I thought I would make a little flip book for them.  We'll see.

You should know that I just "pinned" this post on my Project Life board on Pinterest a total of 3 separate times for 3 separate things I loved from your layouts. I don't know squat about how to use digital elements, but seeing your amazing results makes me want to learn. Love, love, love your Project Life inspiration!
