Friday Releases, on Saturday
This week begins the start of the scrapbooking frenzy known as DYD – Document Your December. I’m not sure where this comes from – probably another brainchild of Ali Edwards, but I’m not sure. Anyway, I really don’t have any interest in documenting my December any differently than I’ve documented the rest of the year, but I guess that’s just an effect of being Jewish. Of course, since Joe and I have been together, we’ve put up the tree, put the dogs in silly elf hats, and participated in Ramos Christmas. And, I’m happy to do all of this, but since it’s not part of my background, it’s just not that meaningful to me. Hanukkah is really a minor holiday, and this year, at least, it’s over by the end of the first week of December, and I start a battered women’s syndrome trial on 12/2 – so that’s my December. And, with Joey still not speaking to us, I’m not sure what kind of holiday season we’re going to have around here anyway.
But, the scrapping must go on! These photos are from last year –
First up is Laurie Ann’s DYD contribution, December Basics:
How sweet are Lemon and Olive in their little hats. Awwwww . . .
And next, Amy Wolff’s DYD A Very Merry Month Misc.
I love Amy’s stamps, her borders, her paints.
And Lynne-Marie has a kit in this month’s Digi Files – but I haven’t scrapped with it yet, and I don’t think it’s been “revealed” yet – but, the colors are so vintagey and sweet – definitely worth it.
And, last up for this week, a non DYD – at One Story Down. One Story Down recently added some new, fab designers. And, since I’m mostly a template scrapper (the Laurie Ann layout is not a template, the Amy Wolff one is), I am so happy She Creates has joined the One Story Down Team. This is one of her templates, and a kit from Something Vanilla, This Moment –
And that’s it for this week. My Project Life is – gasp! – three weeks behind. There are so many hours in the day – and between the iHanna postcards, Danielle’s quilt, and the City Sampler, I just haven’t had time. But, tomorrow during the Eagles game, I’m going to try and catch up – at least two weeks.
