I wanted a way to capture our year in photos but the thought of a photo a day was just to daunting. I know me...and I'd eventually slack off.
I have long been a fan of Project 12 created by Davinie Fiero. I knew that this project would definitely work for me. I think of all of the things that I do this year...this album will be a really special re-cap of twenty-eleven.
I decided to go with two 8.5x11 page spread for each month so that I can include a number of photos. The sketch was a little difficult for me so I kept the same journaling block but changed up the rest.
note:: if you have good tips on how to take photos of layouts i'm all ears.
I've been wanting to use the Studio Calico month stamp set for sometime. Love this stamp set.
Here's a close up of the left side page. I'm still debating on whether I should add zig-zag stitching to the seam. For now...I'm calling it good.
