I added just a few bits of embellishment from the kit and glittered the date.
After a comedy of errors with other possibilities I ended up covering the back with one of the large 6x8 patterned papers and made a border with the printed masking tape and a bit of penned in borders too. I'm OK with it, but it ended up a bit busy. That said, I'd spent enough time on that random page and Day 13 has so many awesome stories to tell.
Day 13 was full of plans and stories. It was so beautiful in so many ways. First, M and I woke up early and made cinnamon rolls for breakfast. She donned her special Santa Lucia crown and carried the breakfast tray out to her specially set table. (We elected not to carry it to people's beds as it was heavy and destined to be a mess). She then woke all the men of the house and invited them to breakfast. She was beautiful and had such a fun time with this special role. I loved being her helper.
Crafting note. The orange block in the upper left is actually an empty pocket peaking through to some prep pages behind it. As I was making this I originally had a "filler" Christmas Tree card here, but as I was photographing it I really wanted a transparent element here. (You'll see it is empty in some of the above). Eventually I filled it with colorful, metallic sequins, the number 14 (for the next day) and silver glitter stars. The journaling card is very simple with some washi and stamping.
