Think I can do it? I'm trying really hard, and I have some tricks I'm pulling out of my hat in order to get all my 2010 (just a couple) and 2011 layouts finished up so I can start brand new with 2012 and Project Life next week! I worked for just an hour or two yesterday and got through October 2010-July 2011 with Landry and started on her back to school pics!
This was the first layout I worked on yesterday:
I woke up at 3 AM yesterday, thinking about scrapbooking of course, and this layout had popped into my head. I had pictured it in 12x12 but I didn't have any Kraft paper in that size, only 8 1/2 x 11, so I decided that I would add an 8 1/2 x 11 page protector to my album. I currently use post bound albums but am planning on switching to all 3 ring binders, in the same color. I really like the look of different size page protectors within an album that some people have done so I figured, why not?
So, if I have one 8 1/2 by 11 I need another, right? This one will go on the back side and it literally took five minutes. I grabbed the hearts and embellished doily out of my scrap tray, added some journaling and I was done! (how about that new pink Sharpie?)
Do you have big weekend/New Years plans? We will be doing the usual, snacks, movies and games with mom and dad at our house. On Sunday will have our annual Black Eyed Peas for good luck at mom and dad's house. You know, she's a stickler for that. She makes ALL of us eat at least ONE bite for good luck for the whole year. You have to eat them on New Year's Day though. It really does work though, and honestly, my mom makes THE BEST Black Eyed Peas ever! Whatever you do, and wherever you are, I hope you ring in the New Year safely and I sure have enjoyed you all in 2011 and am really looking forward to 2012. I have a GREAT feeling about this next year, for all of us! See you next year!
