I know! I know! It's almost March- why am I just now posting my finished December Daily? Because I JUST finished it! Every couple of weeks I make a Scrappy To-Do list of sketches I want to work on, DT assignments, and new ideas. Scrappy time is not very frequent with grad school, so I try to make the time I do have effective by knowing what I want to work on! I've been meaning to finish my December Daily, but needed to heal from our Christmas loss. On Christmas Eve our dear dog Pepper went to the vet and was diagnosed with pancreatitis. She spent two days in an emergency vet's office 45 minutes away. We saw her on Christmas and then she took a turn for the worse the next day. We were able to see her right before she died and it was one of the worst things I've ever seen in my life. I just put Christmas away for a while, but this week I felt inspired to finish the album.

Pages 4, 5, 6 & 7
Pages 7 & 8
This last page is what inspired me to finish the album. The Starbucks coffee sleeve will always remind me of the trips to see Pepper. On Christmas after seeing Pepper, the only thing open was Starbucks, so we stopped for some White Chocolate Mochas. This week's challenge at Handmade Love was to incorporate something non-scrapbooking related on a layout. I knew that I had this sleeve and wanted to use it as a pocket. I put a well-worn copy of the song I sang on Christmas Eve in the pocket.
Please join us for this week's challenge and stop by to see the other DT members take on the challenge!!
