December Daily wrap up for 2013

I just loved doing this project completely digitally this year. Made it so much quicker and simpler for me, otherwise this never would have happened during this crazy time. Here are the last few pages:

Day 24 - Happy Christmas Eve!

Day 25, page 1

Day 25, page 2

And finally Page 26 (I finished on Boxing Day as we had another family celebration that I wanted to include).

December Daily catch up

Nothing like a hectic festive season to get a little behind on the DD showcasing! The pages are done so here they all are - ready for page overload:

December Daily, days 14 & 15

Slowly warming up here, getting set for a very HOT end of week. Here are days 14 & 15:

December Daily, Day 13

And just like that we are over half way! Friday the 13th (der der deeeeeeer) was school concert day, one of my favourite school events for the year. The girls and the rest of the school put on a fabulous performance of Cinderella and Rockerfella and we were very proud of them all.

December Daily, Day 12

Finally got some photos of them opening their books at night. Our "advent calendar" is a book opening each night in December up until Christmas - mostly with old Christmas books but with one or two new ones thrown in there to keep it interesting.

December Daily, Day 10 & Day 11

Here is day 10 - you know, it was actually day 11 but I have two "subjects" for day 11 so I spread them out! Liking the way this not being exact is working out. Although technically we are currently into Summer, the weather is actually feeling more like winter to me. But the pool is open, so that means the girls simply MUST swim - so swim they did. Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!
And Day 11 - this one I think is one of my favourites so far. Christmas cooking, what more can I say!

December Daily, day 9

Just some shots of the girls writing out their Christmas cards for the kids at school. Love all their little drawings on each one!

December Daily, Day 8

Hmmm...so I think I may have missed another day. Oh well, here is day 8 featuring lots and lots of photos.

An interesting mix of pics, mostly of the girls having fun under the sprinkler as it was HOT, but also a cute little message on the chalkboard in the bank, and Kiara's knee from her little accident on the trampoline - I think the trampoline mat actually came off second best thankfully.

December Daily 2013, Day 5

Yep, I went back and did it. Now this is actually NOT a photo from December 5, but this is how the whole December Not Quite So Daily works for me - it will not matter in a year (or even next month) if this photo wasn't taken on the exact day, nobody will even remember.

December Daily 2013, Day 6

And yes, I know I have missed Day 5. That's what happens when you are working and nothing of interest happens that day. I may go back and fill it in, or then again I may not. Either way, I am not fussed!

Here is day 6 - teaching the kids at school Christmas cards. A great afternoon.

December Daily for 2013

I really wasn't going to do anything extra for a December Daily this year, I was just going to add it all into my Project Life like last year....until we pulled out the decorations box and found all the December {not quite so} Daily's from years past. And the girls were so excited and interested to look back that I thought I will do it, but go simple and digital and then get the book printed sometime throughout the year when I find a good special.

So here we go, all using Ali Edwards templates and brushes:

December at Lime Tart

The kits are gorgeous for December at Lime Tart. I have had a little play with the Half Tart and am up on the Zest Blog today showing this layout:

I am just loving the colours in this kit, and also the border paper and the veneer pieces and the tickets .... and, well you had better check it out for yourself!
