December Daily Days 11 and 12

I'm back with my pages for December 11th and 12th. On the 11th, we finished up our hockey tournament in Merritt and traveled home through Kamloops for the quickest shop for jeans, boots, and books known to man! I really like how the embossing on the left page turned out, that's kind of an ongoing theme with this album - not really planned, but a happy surprise! The photos were taken from sooooo far away, and through glass, so they're not great quality, but I wanted to include them because they're some of the only hockey pictures I got.

This page for the 12th came together quickly. Again, more dry embossing, but this time I have a misted paper doily too. I'll definitely be using those again! The story here is kind of funny - while most kids are writing letters to Santa, Nolan's spending hours drawing the "Cold War", also known as "Elves vs. Snowmen". The drawing is quite complex, with several different types of aircraft, catapults, missile launchers, etc. Apparently the elves have better technology and won the war hands down! Not sure if this is a bit demented, but I was just happy that he wasn't super hyper or arguing with me, as per usual!

Christmas day is almost done, and I think it's safe to say that this year was a roaring success! I hope that all of you had a wonderful day with family, and possibly some scrappy treats under the tree!
