December Daily 2023 - Day 23

Each day here on my blog I'll be sharing my foundation pages (the base page I had ready to go before the month), using my 2023 December Documented Mini Book Project Kit and the finished pages along with the supplies I used (linked at the end of each post). 

Day 23 - all I want for Christmas, every year

For as long as I can remember, we've gone snow shoeing either on the 23rd or 24th - it's all I want for Christmas from my family!  We can be up in the mountains in 15 minutes from our house & it's like another world.  So quiet & peaceful.  

I printed a large, narrow photo to emphasize the height of the trees behind us.  

A photo on the back side driving down the canyon on our way home.  It was a beautiful day!  

On the right I added a card that flips up to reveal another photo

Added the story on the back along with some acetate pieces, die cuts, vellum & gold foil foam stickers - it was so cold that day... 9 degrees!   Stamped the wordstrip 'all I want for Christmas'.

I have a confession... I had to tweak something, like on the 22nd... I had to!! :)

The foundation pages for the 23rd were all set to record our outing - we do it every year, so I knew what theme I wanted for the foundation pages.  But we didn't go snow shoeing on the 23rd, we went on the 24th! 

Again, I always say 'you do you'.  You do what works for you.  I always figure there's no way I'll even remember next year whether we went on the 23rd or the 24th, and it really doesn't matter which day it was anyway... it's the memory & the story that matter.

Here's my original day 23 foundation pages -
