Too Far Behind

I'm getting too far behind on my Christmas Book posts and Advent Calendar so I'm going to fix that. Since I can't add more hours to the day I will just streamline the past few days. If you want to go back a little and see Day 5 click Here. Editing the photos are what is hanging me up.
So for DAY 6 of the Book.
I love the pocket because you can add as many Tags as you like.
 The tags come from the Simple Stories 25 Days Of Christmas from last year.
Now for the Advent Calendar for Day 6. Sorry this is a little blurry. I just couldn't hold still enough and I finally gave up.
 This is better. Love those stickers. I think they are K&Co.

Day 7 of the Christmas Book. That was Friday and I had Claudette and KayLynn over for a visit and it was Miss KayLynn's Eighth Birthday Party with Nana and Grandpa. The girls helped with Decorations too.
The Book Page: I had made this ahead of time but now I think that I may change the Photo Frame into and accordion book so I can add all the photos from my decorating my Studio table for Christmas.
Here is a little preview. I'll share more details when I get all the photos edited.
And the Advent Calendar for Day 7:
 These 3D stickers are from a line that Wall Mart had last year and I bought all the different sets. I'm so glad I did because they do not have them yet this year. You will see more in the coming days.

Day 8 of the Christmas Book. I so love My Minds Eye papers. I'm not sure what will be on this page when I get to the photos. What I did do today was play catch up and rest.  Below you will find what I made. And I did get the lights up outside. It took all of 15 minutes.
 A close-up.
 Day 8 of the Advent Calendar: I didn't even try to get a good shot of this on the ribbon. Too blurry again today.
So one of the things I did Finish on the Eighth Day of Christmas......
I have made several of these frames now and I will make more. They are so cool. They are made using a large acrylic Snowflake from the Dollar Store or the 99Cent Store, some layered paper snowflakes.
 Cut the word from Sizzix die from last year.
 I made the easel back from foam core from Dollar Tree and covered it with paper and colored the white core with Copics to match.
So there is a very long post but I am happy to be caught up with sharing the pages and Advent calendar. today is another day. Check back tomorrow to see page 9 of the Christmas book and the Advent Calender.
