Before I get to days 2 and 3, I wanted to show some additions to what I've previously shown. I did end up going back and making another "hello december" arrow, this one is more legible in person, although, not super clear here.
I couldn't resist gluing this scrap of magazine paper from a Hallmark ad down on my inside cover.
I also added a clear overlay to day 1 spread and this little ribbon with the date stamped on it:
The ribbon is actually in between plastic, kept in place by a little gold brad on the outside, since it was moving around. Before I had put the ribbon there, you could see through to the next spread where I had stamped Dec 02 2012 and it was annoying me, :).
Day 2 spread- my favorite parts of these pages are the arrows that were scavenged from packaging, the red arrows in a row, from a new faucet we installed, and the brown one above the shell was one of those "pull to open here" arrows on shipping boxes.
Because the day was full of things I wanted us to remember, I used 2 spreads. Here's the second:
The left side is a full size pocket protector- I wanted to do one where the photos were cut up, but figuring out how to do that since the back would be affected by the same perameters was getting me confused and getting in the way of me actually documenting it, so I let that go.
The right side page is one of the pieces that came with this. Love that it had the 2 cut out and I attached some paper security tape behind it.
I sewed on a photo I took of my lap when driving home- and added a playing card from an old game of Rook (I think it was Rook).
And day 3 spread:
A full page photo sewn in a page protector with a Martha Stewart label sticker on top, stamped with an old set of stamps I have:
I don't know if the company is still selling them, but here's their info on the box:
On the right side of the page, I used one of the same pages from the same as the 2 above, and it had a 3 cut out already:
I didn't back it with anything, because I liked the page 4 stuff that was showing through.
Onto days 4,5,6 and soon 7, time is flying, at least I'll remember how we spent it now ;).
