Dec Daily 2014: Thanksgiving Day

Hello :) I can't believe I got some of the pages done in my Dec Daily 2014 (forewarned this is a photo heavy post) I captured all of Thanksgiving throughout the day on 3 pages, yep I'm that type of scrapper I guess :) but then each of the picture groups tell their own story. I'm not one that starts my Dec Daily the 1st day of December, mine starts Thanksgiving Day through till Jan 1. For lots of inspiration I look to Let's Dec Daily blog, youtube videos and facebook groups.
The inside cover of my Dec Daily has the Baking part of the day:
 The full page: Memories of Thanksgiving growing up is the Turkey and the Pumpkin Pie. This is the one day of the year we do have the roasted turkey and my homemade pumpkin pie
A made a fun little pocket to hold the new dressing recipe I tried, the tag from the turkey and my journaling
A close up of the things in the pocket
The next page: We had gotten alot of snow the day before and our crazy dog (love him!) was trying to play with his basketball in the snow :) I knew I had to add this to the Dec Daily:
 The full page :) This was fun to put together and glad to use up some old wintery embellishments in my stash
 My journaling and some fun cutouts I got in a prize pack
My crazy dog Buddy :) When you don't have kids around anymore, then the focus of winter fun goes to the dog!
The full page and a glimpse of the next page that I will be keeping the page alone for now Thinking it's a good title page to get into the Christmas magic :)
The Thanksgiving dinner and my brother Steve :) We invite him every year it's a tradition for us that started with inviting my Mom and him since Dave and I got married, we have kept this going with Steve :) We also invite Daleane his wife/my SIL but she's usually working that day. The layer pieces are cut aparts that came from the 6X6 paper pad I have in my current counterfeit kit :) Feast of Fun, the choice of background paper is from the kit too 
My journaling and a picture of the phone call we had with my sister Patty done on speaker so we could all have fun chatting with her :) I think we may have started a new Thanksgiving Tradition :) I never thought I was never going to use that phone sticker and when then I came across it! Sweet I can use it here.
Whew :) Thanksgiving Day 2014 documented :) It's gonna be intersting as I go thru this book, if I'm gonna have enough pages for the daily photos :) Some days have 2 or 3 events going on :) Hmmmm I guess I'll have to wait and see :) Thanks for stopping by today and seeing the view from my little corner of the world.
Will you be doing a Dec Daily this year? What approach are you going to be doing?


  1. YAY, look at you!, off and running with it now!! Your turkey looks amazing!! and your dog in the snow... those photos are beautiful - perfectly scrapped too! So glad! Thanks for coming and sharing with us at Lets December Daily!

  2. These pages are fabulous........the turkey, the pie.....YUM! it all looks delicious. Great idea to include a recipe and the turkey tag too. Love the snow photos with your doggie. A super start to your album. Thanks for sharing them with us at Let's December Daily.

  3. Well now I'm actually wishing I hadn't finished my albums - so good to see all your creativity and I'm wanting to get going on my pages!. Especially love all the icy blues on your dog page. Thanks for sharing at Let's December Daily.

  4. I'm doing Journal Your Christmas with Shimelle *and* I'll be taking photographs for December Daily. JYC is a little focus on the past (and my memories of Christmas) but I'll focus on the here and now with December Daily.

    I wouldn't worry too much about how many spreads are needed for each day - roll with it - as some will need far less room (or none at all!) x

  5. Nicely done - I'm so impressed. December Daily is one of those projects I aspire to but can never quite accomplish.
