dd16: brunch ready

on monday we were deeply embroiled in the planning phase for our upcoming family brunch. we finalized our menu, started making a (lonnnnnng!) grocery shopping list, and i unpacked and washed my beloved lenox christmas dishes for the buffet. we are brunch ready!!! :)

it's probably no big secret that i loooooove macro photos, and i'm pretty happy with this one. part of my joy in the december daily project is that it's not only made me look around every day and think about what aspects of the holiday we're involved with, but then after that, i need to think of how to make that visual, too. thus i'm taking pictures of our ornaments, our garland, our trees, and... today... our china. pretty awesome, really.

(vintage greeting card; instagrammed photo printed on kodak premium glossy paper; making memories journaling card; echo park letter stickers and tab; inside: basic grey patterned paper and webster's pages vellum) 
this page is built on one of the vintage christmas cards that i "extended" with a patterned paper interior. so i've got my photo and title on the outside, and the interior holds our menu:

i've been trying to work pretty flat with this project, and mostly succeeding; there are no lumpy embellishments, no fluffy flowers... but occasionally i just have to bust out the foam tape and give my layers a little height. i'll most likely need to swap out for larger bookrings before the month is over, but that's why staples sells those things in a variety pack, right?! :)
