Week 52

So I have made it an entire year taking a picture every day. So here are the week 52 layouts.




Since there are just two more days for photos in 2012 I decided to just continue. I’ve had great fun doing this project so why stop?



Year In Review Part 2

July to December.














Have a great New Year

Year In Review Part 1

In 2009 I did complete a Project 365 and a few weeks into 2010 I broke my right wrist so I couldn’t take picture and continue it. So in December I made December Daily  type album but as it got to the end of the year I thought I needed something to review the year. So I made a Year in Review album, I also made one in 2011.

This year I decided to do Project Life again (and I’ve taken a photo everyday – thanks to my iPhone on which I’ve taken most of my photos) but just before Christmas I decided I needed to do another Year in Review Album.  I could have done the Take Twelve approach, taking 12 pictures on the 12th of every month,  but I didn’t find out about it until after the 12th January and I was doing Project Life anyway.

So I started looking for a twelve photo sketch I could use to make a template. I couldn’t find one, so I broke down and bought the Take Twelve ebook from Ella Publishing (despite the fact that the year is over) and found some great sketches and some ideas for photos to take next year.


So I made a digital template, found a digital stamp with numbers and stamped a layer over with all the numbers figured out where to the monthly titles from the Take Twelve pack and where my journaling (a simple list of what the photos were) was going and I was all set.

After that the most difficult part was picking the photos.  I was able to get three done in an hour over the course of the last few days I’ve made a year in review.  So here is part 1 January to June.














More tomorrow.

Week 51


Sunday, 23 December 2012


I’m a huge Strictly Come Dancing fan, it’s probably why I’ve wanted to learn to ballroom dance for years (I’ve probably got two left feet but it’s on my bucket list).  The final was last night. The show dances are always my favourite dances. This year Denise Van Outen and James Jordan’s blew me away. So I thought I would share.
