Project 12

I have just about been keeping up with this year-long project hosted on Scrapbook & Cards Today run by Davinie.  The finished album will be a brilliant record of this family's life during 2010 and gives me a chance to chart the changes that have taken place as well as celebrate the little things that might not merit a whole 12x12 page to themselves.  Here's my page for September:


This DLO gave me a lot of headaches to be honest and I'm slightly fed up with it!  Firstly, and very embarrassingly for a mathematician, I miscalculated the widths of the photos I wanted to include when I was printing them (the Pagemaps sketch just wanted three 6"x4" landscape photos but I had loads more than that), then, after discarding two photos, I over-cropped some of the rest, then I ran out of glue, then the new glue glooped onto one of the photos, then the Kaisercraft rub-ons refused to rub-ON cleanly ...

... as I was saying over on Alexa's blog - I am trying to embrace imperfections, but this was a bit too much at midnight!

Anyway it's done now, in time for the deadline I hope (at least if it's in Canadian time LOL) and I can start thinking about what to scrap for October's page ...

It's a wonderful project! Do you think you will repeat the process next year or is it a one off?

Well done on finishing! and yes, I know so well those frustrations - you may not be the only one burning the midnight oil and going "Agh!". This looks wonderful - the blues are a great match for the photos and very evocative... Looking forward to next month's.")

Well its a great double page now and if you hadn't said I would never have known how much trouble it had been.
