Awesome pink and gold color combination! via the Nerd Nest

To document the holidays, I’m using my photo and journaling prompts from Daily Doc | Holiday Edition to document each day, inspired by Ali Edwards’s December Daily. I’m mixing and matching, and I’ve printed out the list at the end of the workbook to help me keep track / get ideas each morning.

For prompt #29, I documented our trip to Crown Center to see Eliza’s friend play in a violin concert. The music was AMAZING for the age group and the halls were decked in gold.

The journaling reads:

“Sunday it was so pretty outside from the first “real” snow. We went to Crown Center to see Toby’s violin concert-he did amazing! It was not what I expected from elementary school musicians. + Toby’s family is totally awesome.”

For prompt #10, I documented going to an early showing of the Hobbit with my friend Paul.

Fact: To get this photo, I propped my phone up on a railing on the opposite side of the hall and used the app Timer Cam. The crazy things we do in the name of scrapbooking, right?

If getting to do that isn’t a Nerd Win, I don’t know what is! My stamped snowflake didn’t show up very well, so I just used it as a title background. I’m all about making it work.

The journaling reads:

“Paul and I got to go see the Hobbit: the Desolation of Smaug days before it opened! He got passes from work. It was awesome & actioned packed. Going with laugh-out-loud Paul made it even more fun.”

To take the pressure off and give me plenty of time to complete each layout and photograph it in daylight, I’m sharing a day in this album every few afternoons through the end of the year, a few days after the day I document! To tune into the daily documenting with photos and words, follow me on Instagram, Twitter, or Flickr. Find the rest of the album here.
