for day 2 of my december daily, i focused on our advent calenders. . .
we actually use 2 kinds - a felt tree and Trader Joe's boxes with candy in the windows.
these were the pieces i had available to build my page. . .
I decided I wanted to use a picture of both boys opening the windows on their Trader Joe's Advent Calenders as my main picture...
but I wanted to use a picture of our felt tree advent calender as well - that tree was given to me years ago by my mom and we use it every year. . .I thought I could make a "flip up" to go on the reerse side of my paper, so that I could use the plain red for journaling. . .
I cut a piece of kraft-colored cardstock from my stash, punched 2 holes in it and scored it so that I could fold it. Then I glued the picture of the felt tree to the cardstock.
I trimmed the edge of the kraft cardstock with pinking shears. . .here is the front of the page. . .
and here is the back. . .
now to do the journaling. . .
