Day 5 is actually a two-page spread and a departure from my use of the #30daysoflists journaling prompts. On December 5, my Purples won their fourth state football championship in the last five years. As you can imagine, it was pretty exciting. Since I had photos (yay!) and an important story to tell, I decided not to go with the list prompts for that day. I'll either substitute those prompts in for later ones that I might not like or might not be applicable to my life or I'll just skip them. Either way, I think it's okay. At first, I worried that I was changing direction/focus/theme midstream, and then I reminded myself that this is MY December Daily. I can make it exactly how I want. If I want to change focus every flipping day, well, I can. (I'm not recommending that per se, I'm just flexing my personal prerogative.)
The left hand side of the spread is the back of day 4 which was in a divided page protector. I still used winter themed embellishments since it was freezing that night. I also added a sticker and wrote in a subtitle on my PL card and tag to make them 'work' with my day's story. I didn't worry much about the school colors showing in the photo. Let's be real: there aren't many Christmasy colors/papers that would really go with purple and gold. Instead, I just decided to focus on the green which was a major part of the second picture showing the players with the turf behind them.
The right hand side of the layout is a full 6 X 8 page with October Afternoon embellishments and paper. I added some journaling on some kraft strips that I'd been cutting off those Target gift tags to make them fit the pockets. (Look at me being thrifty here!) This page is actually pretty minimalistic, but I think that's okay. I wanted the focus to be on the photos anyway.
*I am working on the lighting and photog issues. Grr - it's so hard to get good pics when it's dark by the time I get home every day. Hang in there with me!
