A Quick Memo Board Tutorial

I am up on the Scrapbook Nerd Blog today with my first 2015 project.  I know it's not quite 2015 but my week runs from December 28th to January 3rd so I am posting this today.

I was given the Simple Stories Cat collection to play with and I wanted to show how you could use it for something other than just cat layouts or pages.  

To make my memo board I used an Ikea glass frame, some journaling cards, a photo and stickers.

First pick the cards you want to use.

Add your title for your memo board - mine is a "To Do" board.

Add a photo and put it on the frame.

Use a dry erase marker to write what you want.  I definitely need to scrap :)

Thanks for stopping by.

December Daily Completed Woo Hoo!

I did it and in 2014 too!  I finished my December Daily album today.  I can't believe I managed to finish it so quickly this year and I didn't even really plan any pages just twice a week printed photos and did as many pages as I could.

Here's the final group of pages:

We watched a few favorite movies on the 12th and our Elf made our basement look like Elf did with the house lots of paper snowflakes and chains.

We went and got the tree on the 13th and then decorated it on the 14th.

The 15th was a pretty quiet day.

On the 16th our tree came crashing down, and no the cat didn't do it lol.  Also the Elf left some snowmen.

The 16th was Linden's Christmas Concert at school - I love listening to them sing carols.

On the 17th Nick took a ride on the ceiling fan and we made treats for Linden's class.  On the 18th Nick wrapped some presents for us.

On the 18th I also gave the boys some special last day of school Purdy's Chocolate treats.  On the 19th Nick brought an Etch a Sketch for us to play with.

On the 20th we made some gingerbread houses.  

On the 21st I finally got a photo of Buttons in her new hat :)

We also got a visit from the "real Santa".

I took some photos of my favorite things for the 22nd and 23rd.

On Christmas Eve we made some cookies for Santa.

Then we went out for Starbucks hot chocolate and looked at all the lights.  We have been doing this since Rhys was born.

Christmas Day and Santa came - yay.  My Mom also stopped over for dinner and we Skyped my brother Simon.

Linden got a really cool custom computer from Santa and Rhys got a new massage chair.

All in all it was a great December!

Thanks for stopping by.
