hey guys…and a HAPPY new year to all! SP here…still getting back into the swing of things…after a wonderful and blessed holiday vacation! I truly hope that you all enjoyed your time with family and friends…and were able to relax and take it all in! We had a bit of both…total stress and chaos and busy-ness…but THANK GOODNESS it was balanced with a decent bit of ‘down time’ and taking it easy (yay!)! We did the ‘usual stuff’ – lots of presents and celebrating and visiting with family and friends (and let’s not forget the EATING, lol)…but we also tried some new ‘stuff’ – like ZIPLINING, lol! oh my – what a rush…so happy I did it – though I doubt I will do it again (never say never). And, after that, I’m pretty sure that the itch I have been having to go skydiving…is GONE, lolol! We’ll see :o)
But enough about all of that…I really just want to quickly move through this FINAL ‘monthly’ check-in of project SCRAP 2011! Why, you ask? Well, because I am rushing around to finish my album so I can have it printed and back in time for the FINAL FINAL 2011 check-in, scheduled for next Thursday, lol! That is when we will be sharing the templates for the album cover and ‘officially’ saying GOODBYE to project SCRAP 2011 :o) Then…the following Thursday (January 26th, in the event I’m losing you here, with all these Thursdays, lol) – we will be kicking off project SCRAP 2012 – woohoo! Sooooo…spend this next week finishing up ALL of your 2011 album pages (don’t forget any ‘extra’ pages for birthdays, vacations, holidays, events, etc.)…and that way – when we share the cover…you’ll be READY TO GO! I wish I had done that myself, lol! Right now – I keep adding page after page after page as I go through all of my photos (this year…I will do that monthly…lesson learned…well, I kinda DID do that last year, but I still keep finding more to add lol!). Why oh why do I take so many pics? lol! Anyhoo – I hope to finish my album up asap, so I can take pics to share with you next week! Very excited to wrap it up and see the final product! Alright – more on that NEXT WEEK! For now…let’s finish with our December check-in (you can find the December templates HERE) :o)
As I mentioned – it was a crazy, beautiful month for us…and these pages barely even scratch the surface, lol…but they are my December pages (my albumwill have another spread with more…big surprise, lol)!
Next up…Kylie (who I am missing like crazy as she has been away for the holidays, lol)! I loved checking out her holiday photos…looks like so much (summer) fun :o)
Kim always makes me happy with her pages…can’t you just SEE what a wonderful December they had?
Amber ‘got me’ with the gingerbread houses – LOOOOOVE them…and such sweet photos for the entire month!!
Rosy’s pages are absolutely beautiful and inspiring…and I really love how she included a ‘mini’ image of their Christmas card – GENIUS!
Finally, jltanner’s pages, so full of family and fun – really spoke to me! Especially love the PERFECT family photo :o)
Girls, thanks so much for sharing these with us! And, as per always – be sure to check out the rest of the project SCRAP gallery for more inspiration! And…of course, do not forget to upload YOUR pages for all of us to see! That’s what project SCRAP is all about…inspiring and motivating each other to get the year SCRAPPED!
Alrighty – I better wrap it up…so I can get back to scrapping! Remember – let’s FINISH UP OUR 2011 albums so that we can move on to TWENTY TWELVE :o) I can’t wait to check back in with you next week and share my album! But more than that…I can’t wait to see ALL of YOURS! I am hoping the gallery will be filled with photos of 2011 albums :o) Until then – have a GREAT week/weekend! xoxo – SP :o)
