Layout a month

Some scrapbookers participate in "Layout a Day" challenges. I should be part of the "Layout a Quarter" group, if there were one. But I'm making an effort this year to do more much than that. If I hope to have anything to show for myself at Daughter's graduation in a couple of years, I'd best get with the program.

In general, I don't do a good job scheduling time for scrapbooking. I'm one of those "work before play" people, so everything else comes first. That philosophy needs to change.

So I'm shooting for at least a layout a month...preferably many more. I'm actually doing pretty well with this goal. I have finished several layouts so far in 2008.

Here's the latest one with photos from a recent jazz band clinic. I used a combination of new and old (yes, hoarded) stuff on this layout: 7 Gypsies patterned paper, Making Memories journaling blocks (love these), and old chipboard letters.

One more layout down, only 10,821 to go. :-)
Just kidding. Who's counting?

Hi Janet,
I just love the layout. Really a wonderful design.

I've been trying to catch up with everyones blogs and you've been on a roll I see. I love that photo of your dd at camp. That is just a wonderful photo. I can't wait to see what you create using it.

I see that Lily is teaching Tinsel some of tricks... What are we going to do with her, lol.
Hope you and yours have been happy and healthy.

Thank you for the nice comments! :-) I love working with b&w photos. The colors in these would have been really hard to handle, plus it gave me a good excuse to use that 7G paper! TFL -- jp

Oh that IS a good idea! Maybe even ***I*** could do one lousy layout a month! Not as gorgeous as that one of course, but one little layout a month, now how hard could that be???? Ok, so I'd probably do better at the one per quarter...
