My December Daily

This is my third year of making a mini album to document the Christmas season at our house. I really enjoy it. Before Jeremy and Holly's wedding I had been thinking about what kind of a book I wanted to use. So after the wedding while my sister, Linda, was here, we went scrappy shopping and found this awesome minibook kit by Teresa Collins. Linda stayed for a few days after the wedding and we had the chance to put it together. All I had to do was wait for December and start taking pictures.
I carried my camera around with me a lot...if all else failed I used my cell phone. Some photos were Christmas related some were just things that were happening in December at our house. So here is a look at my book....I think it's the cutest one yet!
December always starts out the photos of Jase driving

The month started off with a great weekend off and a dinner out with friends. I got to see Teresa Collins teach a class too. She is just the sweetest!

Sorry for the glare on the glossy photos...I ordered glossy by mistake 

This page is all about the huge lesson I learned....don't scrapbook for hire in December!!

I was lucky enough to be off of work and could attend the ward Christmas Party.

We had a fun weekend at my cousins house.

My Snowman Collection and a Crazy day at work

We celebrated our Anniversary a few days early
Decorating Central at our house


Jase took  me out for a Christmas lunch....his treat =)

Breakfast with co-workers was great. Ouchie...not so much.
LOVED the Christmas Ornament that Holly and Jeremy gave us!

Fun Christmas morning photos even Riley got in on the act.

We have all become ASU fans since Jeremy married Holly!

My Scrappy Year in Review

I absolutely adore this photo of Jason from Jeremy's wedding.
This sweet photo of Jase I have hanging on my wall in my studio
This is from our Valentine's lunch.
I did this last year and thought it was kind of fun. So I am going to do it again. Here are my top 10 favorite layouts from 2010 in no particular order. it' not Top 10.... it's now it's Top 12....I couldn't keep it to just 10 favorites! =)

It's funny I selected the layouts for different reasons. Some were because I loved the photos, some were because I loved the story, some were cuz I loved the design....what is even more interesting is that I just went back and looked at my old blog and I said almost the same thing a year no matter why I chose the layouts here are my fav's from 2010.

If you want to see my Top Ten layouts from 2009 you can see them here...just scroll down a bit.

I was very nostalic when I did this the now and then feel
