My favorite color is Glitter

I love, love, love my new Glitter Marker by American Crafts!
You just draw directly on paper, over embellishments, over designs
It comes out clear and turns everything into dazzling!

It is so easy to use. And for a gal like me whose favorite color is Glitter, it's addicting.
It's hard to capture a photo of the results but believe me, it turns the ordinary into pretty!

Happy Scrappin',

December Daily Album: Choose your Cover

If you haven't started your December Daily album yet, it's not too late! 

I am just getting mine started this week. In years past I've prepared it ahead of time so it is all ready and sitting on the kitchen counter all through the month of December. Sitting on the counter along with a cup of pens and adhesive, ready for anyone in our family to jot down their thoughts for the day or add a photo or ticket stub. 

I've used all kinds of covers and created my own albums for the last 3 years:

Now that I have a little collection, I'm not super happy about the longevity of the albums I've chosen. This year I decided to use a 8x8 Creative Memories album because they are easier to hold, look at, and I know that the photos and memorabilia will not fade and fall out over time.

So I guess that is my excuse this year, that I ordered this album and waited a bit for it to arrive. But I'm sooo super happy with it! Just look at this dazzling cover:

I purchased the Be Merry Fast to Fabulous Kit. It comes with the album cover and the pages are already pre-decorated! Which is really helpful considering I am starting this on the 12th of December!

How about you? What cover are you using for your December Daily album?  If you don't know what I'm talking about, you can get an overview and instructions from a past blog post here.

Happy Scrappin'!
