dd12: oh christmas tree

here's a page i like a little better than the last one. YAY! it's dedicated to the big tree in our living room. which i *THINK* is done being decorated, though i'm considering adding tinsel. something unexpected that this photo revealed to me is that whereas in real life i have not minded our bay window only having the plain white walls and plain white venetian blinds left by the last owners of our house, in the picture it really does look stark, doesn't it? i'm now thinking of painting in the spring, and ordering the padded valences i saw at lowe's. so it turns out december daily is not just a fun experience, it's a valuable home decorating tool, too. who knew?! :)

(patterned paper: my mind's eye; glitter alphas and tiny stars: making memories; tiny alphas: studio calico; journaling card: prima; instagrammed photos printed on kodak premium glossy paper)

the page is built on the back of one of the pockets i made when i was setting up the book; i've been using the pre-made pages about half the time; though if there's nothing that speaks to me on a particular day, i'm fine with making something new. in this case, the dark maroonish red just seemed right to me, and neutral enough to support two photos, two sets of sparkly letters and a journaling card. which is all ya need, really! ♥
