Project 12 - 2009 and 2010

Can it be true?  An album that is finally completed?  Yep.  Tonight I finished up the last of my 2009 Project 12 layouts.  A couple things I've learned - first, while 8x8 layouts are fun for something different, they are difficult to print photos for.  Second, I use alot of scallops.  LOL.  Third, I don't do "scattered" well.  At all.  I'm very much a linear, balanced person for two-pagers.

In the last two weeks, I finished the pages from August until December.   Not bad.  I've uploaded September through December.  Apparently, I didn't take a picture of August.  Oops.

For 2010, I'm going to use 12x12 pages again. I already have an extra album I can slip each layout into.  Again, for Davinies challenge, I created my cover page.  At first I was going to use some Basic Grey Nook and Pantry and then I saw their Origins line.  Love!  I did have some self control and only bought a few sheets (even though I wanted it all) and made myself use it.   Here's my cover for this year's album:

I ended up using some Thickers and some chipboard parenthesis inked with Distress Ink (Weathered Wood) and painted with Rock Candy Crackle Paint.

I can't wait to get started on this years Project 12.  January should be a good picture month, the girls have been really into dressing up like princesses lately and we're celebrating Alexa's birthday this Saturday. 

Next on the project list - finish up my December Daily (finally received my pictures from WinkFlash) and do Alexa's "6" album.  Every birthday, starting at age 4, I've asked her a series of 10 questions about her likes and dislikes.  It's interesting to see what stays the same (Favorite foods: pizza and hot dogs, again) and what changes. 

Alright, I'm outta here.  I need to hit the hay earlier than last night.
