december daily, day 17

I had lots of photos for the 17th, which is the day we went to the Great Dickens Fair. I used the remember pocket from the main kit to store the newspaper type flier and map that came with our admission. It ended up being very bulky, but I really wanted to keep it. The plastic light bulb is from the DD main kit, as is the rubber word magic. The stamped December 17 is from the December Calendar stamp set.

On the previous page I added some photos from the fair that I took as we wandered around. I just had to put that photo of Marley’s ghost in black and white. He looked SO GOOD. The red card is from the main kit that I put into a 3×4 sleeve and adhered to the outside of the page protector. I attached an avery index tab and labeled it using the Christmas Phrases stamp set.

I used some paper from the Paislee Press mini kit as a background for the gold foil messy circle. I just had to use the “happy Christmas” one; it’s just so British and apropos for a Dickens fair! The journaling went on a 3×4 journaling card from the main kit.

[Favorite Holiday Memory] …is going to the Great Dickens Christmas Fair. It’s somewhat hard to describe; it’s part interactive performance, part craft fair, and part live shows, all set in the Victorian era of the streets of London. The arena is transformed to look like Dickensian London and there are performers dressed in period costume walking around talking to visitors. we saw the Ghost of Jacob Marley, the Ghost of Christmas Past, and the Ghost of Christmas Present wandering through the streets. In one of the Public Houses, we heard Charles Dickens read the first stave of A Christmas Carol. So glad we were able to get out and experience this unique event. Maybe next time we’ll dress up! [so far]
