I've soo enjoyed my extra long vacation.
I've accomplished a lot of the little things that you just can't seem to find the time to do when you're so busy.
I finished my Project 12 album.
I spent time with family & friends.
And now it's time to get back to the real world and real life and buses and work.
But before all of that, I wanted to share the title and ending pages for my Project 12 album.
This title page is one of my favorite layouts. It was made with one of my favorite Studio Calico kits, Glee Club. The color combo in this was just awesome!
I went to town with the pretty patterned papers and my various circle punches.
But let me tell you, achieving balance is such a hard thing in design! The right side is still a bit heavy to me, but not by much.
This date stamp is the one item not found in this kit. It's from a stamp set by Tattered Angels that I don't use often enough!
I also went for it with the Amy Tangerine fabric brads and Basic Grey Yo-yos, items I've been hoarding for awhile now.
Then on the last page, I thought I'd do 12 photos of myself from the year. I've been really bad about taking pictures of myself so I'm happy that I eked out 12!
This is also my first layout of 2012 and my first ever fully digital layout! It just seemed the easiest way to accomplish what I wanted to do.
I didn't purchase anything new for this, but instead used a Kitschy Digitals patterned paper I downloaded for free from a blog hop and an Ali Edwards template I received as part of her Yesterday&Today class. I thought all of the elements were fairly perfect, plus it had room for 12 photos!
So look at me, venturing out and exploring new things without even really setting out to do so. Maybe I'll think about doing more digital projects this year.
And just in case you thought my Project 12 album is complete, guess again! I have a few more pages to share later this week, more wrap up from the year.
Wish my luck as I get back to work going and bus riding!
