December Daily | Day 25

Christmas Day! Big finish! For the "Santa Came!" page I laminated a photo of the loot that Santa left and punched hole in it to fit the album. Embellished with the last bits of gold glitter tape and wood veneer letters adhered with the Martha Stewart glue pen (finally got the hang of using that thing and it is awesome for these tiny little bits).

On the back side of the photo I adhered the wood 25 that I embossed with some gold Zing! powder. Added more gold glitter tape and drew a few stars to finish off the page.

I wanted to include the little GIF that I had made of our opening presents in the morning. So I made a QR code and slapped it in there. I love having these photos of all 3 of us in our jammies opening presents before the sun rose. So nice to be in the pictures without thinking about the camera.

I also included just a couple of photos of a trip to the zoo on the day after Christmas and a few shots from New Year's Eve to finish out the album.
It feels so good to have competed this project. It was a definite departure from my normal documenting style. Way more embellishments than I am used to but I had fun with it! Looking forward to tackling this again next year!
