~ days 4 & 5 ~

December 4th I had two "stories" so I used another cool  Hambly Transparent Sheet that Ali Edwards is using!  Attached to the Hambly Transparent Sheet, I used stickers from Memory Works- 25 Days of Christmas Cardstock "Count Down" Stickers for the number.  Actually, I didn't like the original square number 4 from the sheet, so I used a different number sticker (can't remember which one), glued a 1 inch kraft circle on top, and then used a different (plain) number 4 from the same sheet!

I decided to hide my journaling behind the photo on this page.  I did this for a couple of reason.  The biggest reason was because I wanted a bit of white (green) space.  A bonus was that it helped to hide the number five on the next page (since it sticks out).  I wouldn't have liked seeing the back of the number 5 and would've felt like I had to cover it up!  Here's the hidden journal...

I was really happy when I saw that the book that I'm using from Elise Blaha's etsy shop, had a pink page!  This was the perfect match to tell the story about B. loving (being obsessed with) pink!  And the picture of her trimming her pink tree.  I used a 4 x 6 piece of Hambly transparent sheet between the two pages to help protect the journal from the glitter (I usually use a 2 or 3 x 6 piece)!

all about pink
The story is about trimming B's pink tree, and her love for the book Pinkalicous!  So...I hand wrote "Pinkalicous" on the photo with glue (using my best copy of the font used on the book) and glittered it!  It didn't turn out quite as good as in my head, so I haven't decided if I'm going to keep this, or reprint the photo and keep it plain.  Overall, I do like day five's layout, though.  It's probably one of my favorites so far because it's a fun story, fun colors and so very "B"!

I hope to complete more this weekend, but with the holidays I may not get a chance.  We are also having a few household changes, which may also impair my ability to "get things done."  However, my goal is to complete the rest before the end of the year!
