I'm really enjoying the Designing With 2006 Calendar challenge on 2peas. I'm creating layouts of pictures I thought I would scrap years from now when I retired! But the challenge to scraplift four or more layouts from the calendar each month is inspiring me to look for photos that will complement the layouts. So this week I did one of Sarah in 1980 with her great-grandmother, a two-page layout of her 6th birthday (this is for a current album of all her birthdays I'm working on), and a photo of her college graduation. For someone who scraps primarily by theme this is an unusual approach--but an enjoyable one.
Some of the layouts are of cards and I've been on a real roll with those. Doing them for the challenge has prompted me to make cards from scraps of layouts and just because! All the photos are now in my album on the sidebar. Took me a while to get an album going. As always it was a lot easier than I thought it would be.
