Twisted Sketches and December Daily

Twisted Sketches #78 is up today! Here's my contribution. I LOVE the new Mix & Mend Paper from Sassafrass!!! That is the patterned paper (Handmade Hobnob) I used on this layout. It looks like a complicated layout, but I promise you it's the Sass paper! I added an old My Mind's Eye frame, a Mix & Mend cardstock flower sticker, a brad from Pink Paislee's Queen Bee collection and some old alpha stickers from Heidi Grace and some handwritten journaling and voila! :) 

This page was created as a reminder to myself of where my priority is and where I want my focus to be each day. The scripture is Jeremiah 29:11-13 "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart." 

I can hardly believe it's DECEMBER!!! Happy December! I am so ready for this season!!! I ended up putting my December Daily album together... it was easy this year because as I went to gather things for the album I realized my album from last year (that I barely got to) was still in tact and all I needed was to replace the first 2 days because that was all I managed to get to last year! :( Well, I changed the cover a bit too and so now I'm ready and determined to get this one finished! 

I took a look back at my 2008 album (my first Dec Daily) and it was so fun to see those moments all in one album. One thing though that stuck out to me was the journaling, there wasn't a lot and it seemed like there were a lot of questions about certain things I had already about some of the photos. So, I am hoping this year to get a little more detailed with my words. I am also planning to go through the 31st (or maybe even the 1st of Jan) instead of the 25th. We are celebrating Christmas with my side of the family on the 26th and there is also a lot of fun that comes after Christmas with enjoying family time and new Christmas toys and such that I would like to document as well. 

Here's a look at a few other pages... I am hoping to update my completed pages at least once a week... I will be having my photos printed at a developer so I will not be able to post daily. 

I think I may already have my story for the first unless I come up with a better story throughout the day, which I kinda hope I do... 

THIS is what our TV looks like at the moment. My little guy... bless his heart... decided to take his plastic golf club to the television this morning!!! I was upstairs getting ready for Bible Study, he was supposed to be sitting quietly watching PBS! My daughter comes upstairs and says "Mommy, come look at the TV." in a very calm, no big deal way... I had a terrible feeling... and it was true... needless to say he got in big trouble and the golf clubs went straight to the dumpster (they had nearly made it there many times before now, but this was the straw that broke the camel's back for that troublesome toy). So, I guess Santa will be bringing us a new TV for Christmas... UGH!
