Definitely not Christmas related, but absolutely needed to be a part of my December Daily. Tuesday was a BIG day for our high school senior
On Tuesday he hit 'submit' on the Common App - the online application that 90% of the colleges use for their application process. It was a herculean effort (yes, that is THE word that describes the process!) that has been 6+ months in the making. And now it's done! And now we wait :)
I thought it was fitting to tie Santa in to this page. It's almost like his letter to Santa :) Now, wouldn't it be nice if Santa sprinkles a little of his magic on the process and delivers a few presents in a few months, in the form of acceptance letters along with a merit scholarship or two. Come on Santa!!
On the back I added some journaling about why it was such a big day. On the 'naughty' 2x2 card I used a typewriter to add 'YOU DID IT' to the fill in the blank. Here's a little tip - the 2x2 square was too small to really work in the typewriter so I temporarily adhered it to a tag which made it much easier to type on, then I pulled it off the tag and inserted in the pocket page
I thought it would be fun to add the emails he received after submitting, so I printed them out and inserted in a 6x8 pocket page. I added some washi and stickers to the top of the pocket page to finish things off.
