**December Daily Challenge**

Hello Everyone-Can you believe it is December already?

I recently started to design for IOD from Creative Imaginations/Night Divine.  The paper is designed by Sally Griswold and her sister Josie.  Ok-Can you imagine designing paper?  I cannot wrap my head around it.  Well, Sally issued a challenge to do a December Daily along with her.  So I started one.

I know a few people that are doing the 365-WOW that is too much for me.  I think 31 days is much more manageable.


So here is a take on mine- I did not use my cricut on the front.  The paper was so beautiful I wanted to show it off.
I added bling,  a little paper glaze on the butterfly.  I also popped up a few holly elements to give it depth.

Btw-Mine is 8x8



My first day we put up our tree.  So I cut trees and the title from "Winter Frolic". 









Now for Day 2-I took a picture of this super cute coffee mug my sister bought me at Starbuck's.  It has a little mouse on the handle.  So I drank a little hot apple cider and poof a great picture. (mug was cut from Joys of the Season)
Day 3-Holly was cut from Joys of the Season---You get the picture. 

Click here to see Day 4 and a few more pictures and follow me.  **There is a few new kits out thru Monique Griffith Designs-click here to check them out.

Now are you going to take the challenge?  Send pictures to me on facebook (send me a friend request) or my email at wendylawrence@surewest.net -I would love to see them.

If you love this paper as much as I do you can get it online from                     
 A Cherry on Top or your local LSS

Stay tuned for more fantastic projects from Melanie & Joy...They work super hard for us and I personally appreciate it.

Thats such a fun idea doing the December Daily Challenge! I can hardly wait to scrapbook Thanksgiving and now Christmas! This is like writing a journal in pictures!

Got2BCrafting said...

These are gorgeous! I am not sure I could even do 31 days, and the 365 is just way out of the question! Can't wait to see the rest. Happy Holidays!

Kate said...

31 days does seem much less daunting than 365! Great job with your little album - and your commitment to the 31 days!

Kath said...

Beautiful album. I may take the ideas and use them for LOs, but am not even able to commit to a December Daily this year - much too much on my plate. Will try to aim for one next year, tho!

What a great project. Thanks for sharing. I never realized there was a coffee cup on the Joys of the Season cart. I love the way that happens. You go back and look at them again, and see something new each time! Thanks again.

Janine

Cynthia B. said...

Your DD looks great. I've thought about doing one for years now (even when I did Project 365 in 2009!) - but I just don't have enough energy in dec., I decided, to tak on another project. Yours will turn out great, I can tell! TFS!

JenBenLola said...

Adorable! :o) JenBrierley2 at gmail dot com

Laney said...

Wow this is fantastic, thanks for sharing.

Laurie's Sunny Studio said...

Love the December Daily Challenge. First, the booklet which you've started is terrific. But what a fun way to do an advent calendar in reverse .. remembering the memories of the holiday season.

ScrappinT said...

Love the mini!

JANLYNN said...

What a wonderful idea to follow through and save all those little Christmas memories some that sometimes get forgot. I have to try this myself. TFS

Denise said...

I'm with you. 31 sounds much more doable than 365! Your album is so gorgeous. Absolutely the best Christmas mini out there.

Love Le said...

Love it. What beautiful paper! I need some!!! :)

Deanna said...

I love your book and the layouts. The paper is beautiful. I can't imagine doing a daily challenge. I have a hard enough time getting something done once a week, work get in the way.

Very Cool idea... would be cute for a babybook gift so the pics match the paper.

Pam said...

Cute idea.

cfine said...

These papers are gorgeous! Love the December daily idea, but I'm lucky if I get one event scrapped much less 31 or 365 days!

Sarah said...

You are off to a wonderful start. Love your pages

Anonymous said...

Nice paper! Great Job! Christmas is in the air!!

CathyinMN said...

The paper is very pretty, and you did a great job on your project. The December Daily is a good idea, but I just don't think I'd have the time to do something every day right now.

IRW Dana said...

I love this challenge. Thanks for the inspiration. papermemories4u at yahoo dot com

Tabitha said...

What a great idea. Thanks for sharing.

Heather said...

This looks fabulous!

Jolanda said...

really cute idea :D

*kbcraftcorner* said...

This is such a great idea! You say 365 is too much for you, but if you break it down into 12 31-day books, you can do it:) Thanks for the inspiration!

scrappingnana said...

What a great idea. Love your project and all the details. TFS

Rachelle said...

That is such a neat idea! Thank You for sharing with us.

Wendy said...

Beautiful paper, and beautiful layouts! But I'm sorry to say that I cannot do a daily challenge....

Wendy T.

Scrapper69 said...

WOW Wendy! Your book looks soooo pretty! That paper looks AMAZING! It's also a wonderful idea to scrap 30 days instead of 365 days.... I like the concept and I think I might have to give it a go... :o)

ScrappyMama said...

Thanks for sharing! I've seen a few other ones of these albums lately but they all had the whole book done before Dec 1. Did you do that? I have a really hard time working without knowing what pics I have or what was going to be done that day. I have a little time to myself tonight...I might see if I can get "caught up" & join you for this project. The key, for me, will be to remember to keep it simple. Thanks for the inspiration!!

ShoppingTamii said...

fun project!

jcamp2020 said...

Let's see, to catch up, Day 1, got my hair cut (all of them), day 2, put up the Christmas Tree.. day 3, St. John's Holiday Craft Fair ("needed" more stuff) hehe, today...shop, shop, shop. You have such great ideas. Love your new kit.

Brigitte said...

Wow, this paper is amazing!

crafty queen said...

The stuff is great, I love them all. I cannot take the challenge because I do not know how to upload pictures and projects.TFS

Rebecca Geile said...

I have really loved this idea when I've seen other people do it, although I've never tried it myself.

Cheyennemarie said...

I started one of the 365. I was going to print out and place on each day of a calendar once the year was done. Yeah, I got about 2 weeks into it. I think maybe I'll try your idea. We'll start with Winter Break. TFS

Libby said...

Sharon said...

This is just wonderful! Love it!!! :)

Kristie Maynard said...

Wonderful idea! I can't imagine doing this through December, you are a brave soul to take this challenge on at such a busy time. Great job, hope we get to see more of it.

*Linda-saved by grace* said...

That's a totally fun project. I might do twelve days of Christmas like this...not sure I can do something for 31 days. Love it, TFS!!!

sleigh said...

Great idea! I can't imagine doing 31 days, let alone 365!!! Luv the new "snow much fun" kit too :)

Wendy-
Each and every page is gorgeous. Each new project speacks of your growing talent. Your projects would not be complete without the added bling. The bling is a part of your artistic signature. TFS.

I have never thought of doing a daily challenge with die cut images. Very cool!

Crafty Sue said...

Very nice pages. Love that it's 8X8. Much more attainable when it's smaller. TFS

Cute ideas! I'm trying to do a cross between Dec Daily and Shimelle's Journal Your Christmas...it's a challenge alright!

Angela said...

Hey Wendy! I love your December Daily samples and the paper is FANTASTIC! It's great that you are using several different carts on this project. Thanks for working so hard for us as well.

Janett said...

Love your ideas, thanks for sharing!

DebJoAl said...

Like the 31-day idea. Would be nice to do from Thanksgiving to New Years! Personally I would have to take a pic or some idea a day and make the actual album in Jan or Feb!

verolas said...

this calendar rocks!! Its perfectly cute!!

Luv 2 Create said...

What a fun idea. December is chalk full of days to scrapbook. There is so much to be done daily. Just not sure I would be able to remember to stop and record and take pictures on a daily basis, let alone design a page a day.
