The Ice Skate

Hello Hello
How's it go? Great I hope.
How is everyone doing December Daily keeping up? I am doing better this year than I have in years past and I think it has to do with how I am tackling my photos, they are being processed faster and so therefore I can get them printed and in the book faster...I like it.
So for today I want to share the final Ice Skate that I made for my youngest daughter and if truth be told I just finished it about a month ago. As I mentioned when I decided on this project to do at my older daughter's birthday party I didn't really think it through very well and what I thought we'd get done in a matter of a couple hours ended up taking about 3 1/2 to 4 in total time. This particular one took me 10 months to finish because I have a really hard time going back to something once I've put it aside. Anyone else have that same problem?  
But eventually I do finally get back to them and this is what became of it. I think this one is my favorite of the bunch but I can't really say for sure why. I think my girl did a really good job picking out her paper and then paired with the silver and the seam binding, I just really like it.
I mentioned in another post that I needed a way for this skate to stand on it's own and so to make that happen I used a cereal box die and assembled it and adhered it to the back of the skate - it's meant to hold a couple of packages of fun dip because well...who doesn't like fun dip?
Well that's all I have for today, hope you like it. If you have any questions please feel free to leave me a comment. I thank you for stopping in and taking a peek, hopefully this weekend I'll have some more of my December Daily pages ready to share, until then...
keep calm
and
be merry!
just B
