All Squared Away!

Feelings always run high when something comes to an end ... reaching the bottom shirt in the ironing basket (relief), watching the credits roll after Mama Mia (glee), swallowing the final chocolate in the box (guilt), casting off the last row of stitches (pride), storing the BBQ at the back of the shed (sadness), completing a scrapbooking project (satisfaction) ...

So last night I was super satisfied when I completed the introductory page for my Project 12 album for 2010.  The album is filled with double page spreads, one for each month, but that left a single space at the front of the album.  The January challenge over at Sarah's Cards was to do some sort of Year in Review or Highlight(s) of the Year page and this fitted perfectly.


I also managed to score some "points" over at UKS in line with this week's challenge as I used a sketch, ribbon, 10 buttons, re-cycled cardboard packaging, and doodled on my page.  Papers are from an old Basic Grey 8"x8" Sublime pad, borders are done using my Martha Stewart wide punch and 2010 is cut using Sizzlits Round-a-bout dies.

That looks like an amazing punch - I love the way you have used little bits of it. So that's 2010 all done and dusted, then? Brilliant!

Thanks for suggesting a joint sewing project for me and TSO - she actually went for it. One felt circus coming up.

Wonderful layout - I like the little touches - doodling and little scattered button. It has a real "finished" look to it. Nicely done.
