Documenting December

December is full of events.
We are busy catching up with family and friends, eating good foods, going to nice places and doing lovely things.
So why is it every year I struggle to scrap all this?
It's like my mojo goes off on a Christmas holiday all on it's own and comes back later in January, by which time I no longer have any interest in scrapping Christmas.
Because of this I rarely have any Christmassy LO's. As for December Dailys, forget it. I always start with good intentions and give up after just a few days.

This year I'm tackling it Project Life style and it's working for me.
Back in Feb this year I said I would attempt Project Life but in my own relaxed way and it really has worked. So I thought I would try this for December too and 'Yes', it's working!!

I have my first week completed already and I've prepped this week too.
Not bad.
There is however a lot to document in December so I thought I would add a couple of extra pages.
I will show you these today.
After all, not every page has to start with a new week number or date does it??

I haven't used PL cards for these two pages, instead I used a couple of cute 12x12 papers that were perfect for cutting up.
First is this one from Bella Blvd. I love this happy paper.

I have cut it to suit my page protector. Across the top and then the next 2 sections in to twos.
Giving me this.
You can now see how it works for me. I just rounded off the corners.
I have added some little gems for some bling. The Prima Marketing gems and pearls are my favourite for this.
I love the little packs they come in and they are such great value.
My next page was more about the story telling.
Again no week number.

Here's my page all about picking our Christmas Tree this year.
I had a silly story to tell and this paper was perfect for my story.
I was able to document our tradition of how we pick our tree.
And if your paper doesn't quite fit what you need it to do.....then you make it fit.
A pair of scissors and it's a perfect fit : )
I'm so happy to be getting some of my stories down on paper this year.
This to me feels so informal and there's no pressure.
Perhaps I will actually get Christmas 2013 documented after all.
I hope you are enjoying your December so far.
