I've had a question about the date 'stamp' on my pages. It is an element created just for this project in microsoft publisher, using word art. I envisioned something like this because I don't have a lot of number embellishments, and it's just quick for me to pop it over the picture each day. There is a similar circular number digital brush, designed by Ali, available here.
The other detail added here is scratched edge overlay, by Anna Aspnes, for designer digitals.
Just FYI: I did not use photoshop to incorporate my digital elements. I have photoshop, but I'm using microsoft publisher and pulling the .jpg images open on top of my photo file in that application. So if anyone is PC-based and using that software, that should work for you as well. I DON'T reccomend adding that software to your platform if you do not already have it. It is already outmoded, is not compatible with print shops, and I only use it because it's familiar.

On the back of yesterday's page I left open space. (In other words, this page precedes day 15) I want to include some narrative here about what books the kids are enjoying this year. We've had a holiday book basket for the last three years running and each year they gravitate towards different titles, depending on their interests and reading skills.
I'll come back to that later, so I don't get slowed down or off track maintaining the daily commitment.
