365 Layouts in 2010

Every year I try to create 365 pages — I am the only scrapbooker in my whole family so I am not only making books for each of my kids and one for myself, but also for each of my nieces and nephews. I have more than enough photos to do 365 pages a year, believe me!!

The last time I successfully reached my goal was in 2006, before Matthew was born and before I was teaching classes full time. This year I AM going to make it!!

I was chugging along, about 20 layouts ahead of where I needed to be when somewhere along the way I got behind….ACCK!!

So I pulled out all my “pages in progress” ArtBin to help catch myself up. I'm still about 10 pages “behind” but I am working on it. It might be considered “cheating” to be counting pages where I just needed to add a title, pics, or a date to finish up but I don't count 'em unless they're really done, scanned, and put in books. Okay, maybe “finished” but put in stacks and ready to go in books. That's where I get hung up, okay?! LOL

So here's a few of the layouts I created/finished this month:

Happy Scrapping!!

  2. Great layouts, Jennifer. Love the Mr. T one! He is soo cute! I tried to do the 365 last year, after I got into a friendly competition with one of the LSS owners. I didn’t make it due to the Leukemia diagnosis at the beginning of September, but I did manage 211. I’ve decided to go for 365 this year, with a twist. 365 projects. Layouts of any size count, cards, altered items. It’s a more realistic goal for me. I am 1 ahead right now! I better get cracking!
