Day three was the December meeting of my book club. This year we got together at Ruth’s house to celebrate and do a small gift exchange. I so enjoy my book club! I have not read in a while and this club has reawakened my love for reading.
On this page I did a collage of all the books we have read so far and a collage of my book club members. I am sure as the year goes by we will lose some members and gain some new readers.
For this page, I pulled out some really old Heidi Swapp clear ghost letters and colored them with alcohol inks to spell the word BOOK and stapled onto the Story tag from October Afternoon.
My December 3 journaling card was from In a Creative Bubble. She makes awesome pocket page cards and brush files. Her stuff changes all the time, so these may no longer be available, but I am sure she has some other awesome stuff. This is also where I got the “Traditions” journaling card from yesterdays page.

Before going to Day 4, I added an old memory photograph.
This is a picture of my siblings. I am the cute little one the right.
It does not snow very often in Southern California, so this must have been a big deal.
This next spread I did because I really, really, really like this paper. I could not cover it up, I wanted everyone to see the cuteness of this paper.
I decided to add a viewmaster reel to the page to identify my favorite movies I watch at Christmas. A Christmas is not a Christmas without these movies.
Here is a close up of the reel. I got the reel from Designer Digitals. You can get it HERE.
I ALWAYS watch Little Women at Christmas, either the 1949 version with June Allyson or the 1994 version with Winona Ryder.
To add something to the back of this page, I needed another blank sort of page, so I added an old photo when my nieces were little. They are in their thirties now. Oh how time flies.
I decided to take photos of the outside of the house on this day. Some years I do a lot of decorations, but this year was simple. Some poinsettias on the porch. A Wreath on the door. Greenery from the porch light. And lights wrapped around the big tree in the yard.
On the poinsettia pocket I added some clear letters to spell out RED and added some glitter and stars. I fused the pocket closed with my fuse tool.
Thanks for looking!
