Yes you read it right. 2018! I spent Saturday in the (virtual) company of Ali and the community of December Daily scrapbookers and it was great. It was a December Daily Prep Day where Ali popped into your computer for 12 instalments worth of ideas, inspiration and page layouts over a 12 hour period.
It got me excited for this years album but also reminded me that I didn’t share my finished 2018 one. So here is it. As I recall we’d made it up to day 14.
Day 15 saw Gav and I head off to London for the weekend. I used that glorious gold star transparency to hold the number 15.
There is a card from a past December Daily® kit and a cut down page protector with two pockets.
Used the diagonal lines to write my story. You can just see the photo I took of the sign that lives in St Martins Theatre showing the number of performances of The Mousetrap. 27,614…… It’s been going a long time. I went to see it with my friend (it isn’t Gav’s thing!)
Perhaps I should have added that not only was I thrilled to see it performed in London but that Mum and Dad also came to see it here many years ago. As an Agatha Christie fan it was lovely to be there in that theatre.
Day 16 and I wandered to Covent Garden while Gav went to a museum. I spotted the very Instagrammed green mini so snapped a photo too and paired it with a sweet card I made. Really love that embellishment tree!
We met up again and went along to a service at St Pauls Cathedral. This was a truly lovely hour. I kept the programme and simply folded it up to pop in the album.
Day 17 and a red envelope paired with a photo of the mantle.
I seem to have merged the story for day 18 and 19 together.
All about making little fabric bags that I used instead of crackers. I added photo of Buddy too as he was looking cute.
As I finished this album months afterwards I was running out of words but I was ok with that. I added the photos and called it good.
The Chewbacca stamp from a Christmas card envelope had to go in.
The photo below of me preparing got my words flowing again!
Day 24 and our usual trip to the cemetery followed by coffee.
I made my sis a Christmas tree quilt. She loved it.
Scenes of present opening and around the table completed my album for 2018.
Looking back I really enjoy the smaller format, fold out pages, clear pages. All my usual favourites and it’s good to see as I can get ideas of where to go this year. Yes indeed I am ready to get going the 2019 foundation pages!
