More December Daily!

Hope you're not sick of my December Daily album yet!  On the 15th, Jason took Nolan and Ailis to see a play in Prince George (in our smashed up car - Nolan was cold the whole way back because he could feel air coming in the back!).  Jason's cousin played Scrooge in "A Christmas Carol" and they were able to get front row center seats!  Jason bought a Prince George newspaper with a photo collage of the play, and I wanted to include it, so I put an envelope on the right hand side and decorated it with a star background cut with my Cameo and another journaling from Simple Stories: 
I haven't done much to the other side of the envelope, just inked it and added a longer journaling card/insert. Then, for the 16th I had these cute photos of Ailis and Brenna playing in the snow:

I was able to journal right on the photos, then just added some stickers to dress them up a bit.

Those pages were finished before I went under the knife!  Here I am dozing on the couch: 
Yeah, I'm milking it, but it's not often I get a day off from housework!  So the other day, I wanted to get some more done on my album but was a bit limited with the thumb situation.  I had to improvise and type my journaling.  Cutting with the paper trimmer is still doable, so I was able to finish these two pages:
Thanks for looking!  I have a #2 to change downstairs, this should be interesting!
