December Daily - This Happened Today

Today's December Daily spread features candles.  Against my better judgment, I battled the crowds at the mall this weekend and picked up some favorite holiday scents that were on sale at Bath & Body Works.  They aren't all for me - I'm sharing them with my daughters - but I do love certain scents at this time of year.

I again used a digital stamp on my 4x6 photo.  This one is from Kellie Stamps; unfortunately it is no longer available but she does have a fun selection of digital products here.  I added my story digitally as well and then placed a diamond-shaped embellishment on the left to offset the journaling on the right.

The bottom pocket holds another one of the 4x6 cards I prepped last month.  This one has holiday words and phrases in a fun script pattern and is part of the Document December kit from Elle's Studio.  I used colored pencils to fill in the circles and loops on the letters and then added a strip of patterned paper from Kelly Purkey's Joyful and Bright kit to the bottom.  I fringed the bottom of the stripes and then sewed it in place on the card.

And now I'm off to enjoy one of those candles...
