December 12



We spent a wonderful day at home watching football games, playing dominoes and working on a Christmas puzzle. Robbie made his holiday egg nog French toast for breakfast and a scrumptuous cheeseburger macaroni casserole for lunch. I worked on getting my 2011 calendar set up with birthdays, anniversaries, and other important dates and notes. I also created digital month-in-review layouts for January through August of this year.

CREATIVE TIME
I created eight digital pages today using a 12 photo template. (I don't remember where I found this template! UGH) I am creating one layout per month as a review of the year. I have a 12x12 scrapbook that I am using for these monthly layouts, and I think it will hold five or six years of layouts. I created layouts for September, October and November at the end of those months and uploaded them to Persnickety Prints. I received the prints Saturday and am thrilled with the quality and service. I'll use this same template one more time at the end of December, then I'll be on the look out for a template for my 2011 month-in-review pages. Here are a few of my favorites from 2010.

I really like these monthly pages. What a great idea. That's what I'm kind of thinking with my Project Life. The format of your templates are great. Hope you find a good one for 2011.

Seeing all of these pages, with all the pics of you - makes me realize I really need to get on the other side of the camera more often!

Your pages look great! I am doing monthly pictures/pages this year as well. I tried doing a daily picture and weekly pages, but it was hard for me to keep up with. Happy scrapping! :-)

Great template and a great idea! I'm trying to be better about doing summary pages for my All About Us album. Still a work in progress...
