7th December

Again, a little "late" sharing our day 7 but not really ;)

Yesterday was a beautiful sunny day and we had my littlest guy's Daycare Christmas Party. They had a bouncy castle, some friends from the North Pole and a visit from Santa!! Not to mention the park which Hunter headed straight for when he saw the swing and a coffee van for the Mum's and Dad's (yipee!!)

Lots of photos were taken and I simply couldn't narrow it down to a limited number so I have also included a Heidi Swapp Project Life mini book in the 3x4 size.

Here is our Day 7

It all came together pretty easily when I started which I am happy about.

Our Day 7 card started as a vellum piece with the "joy" gold embossed. I added some stickers, a label, a tag, some gold stars and enamel dots - all from the kits :D

Now this piece of balsa!! Well!! This is my 3rd piece (thank you a million times Michelle!!) and am happy with the end result!! I tried hand stitching on the 1st 2 pieces with disastrous results and decided to "keep it simple". The "18 days til Christmas" banner is from my stash and I decided to include that today as 18 is Jacob's go to number. And by go to number I mean when you ask him ANYTHING that is number related his answer is 18! When he wants to stay up later - its either 18 more minutes or 18 more hours. Haha!!

This 6x4 card is behind the mini book :) That very cute reindeer is my littlest guys hands and feet prints - LOVE it!!

Here is the Heidi Swapp mini book. I used a mini bull clip to keep it closed and make it easy to take out of the pocket. A few bits and pieces on the front and voila!!

And a peek inside (excuse the fingers!!)

And last but not least, our days six and seven as they sit in the album :)

Today we go to visit Santa!! CAN NOT WAIT!! I love Santa! I love the magic he brings with believing. I love the wonder and joy in my big guys little face when he sees Santa! Heck, I may even get a snap with the big guy in red myself, why stop the tradition now?! Hehe!!

I hope you all enjoy your day today and Happy December 8th!!
