Well it's the weekend after the first full week of 2012. How was it? Ours was nice, quiet and peaceful. I was trying to think of why things felt more calming and I told my Sister I realized it was because Christmas was over. I do love the Christmas season, but I also love the calm after the storm. :)
So with the beginning of a new year comes my Project Life. I am so excited to be doing this. It will be a challenge at times but I'm ready. Who knows if I can ever go back in time and get totally caught up, but by golly I can stay caught up going forward!!
Last weekend I worked on my cover page for my album. I don't have the actual album yet, so I'm just working on the pages and have them hooked together with a couple rings. The way I see things I won't need the actual album until December 31, 2012. :)
I decided to go with Black and White pictures for my cover page and I like how it turned out. Added some bits of color with my favorite color of yellow.
The "5" represents the size of our family....more furry members than human.
And a close up of the 2012 card.
I already have the first week almost done, it is mostly comprised of birthday pictures of Colin. I'm wanting to use photos taken with my iPod touch so I'm testing out a few things with it as well. Seems like there are so many neat ideas that it becomes scrapbook overload at times. But for me I must keep it real and simple so I can be successful. And on days when I have more time to spend, I can play with new techniques.
Hope to show you more as the year progresses! Happy Saturday!
