Holy cow! Where did 2009 go? Has someone been skimming days from the year and hiding them under their bed? (Everything else ends up under someone's bed, so I'm sure that's were all of the days I've missed have been shoved!) C'mon. Someone fess up. Where did they all go?
I had so many things I wanted to get done this year. Lists were made. Dreams were dreamed. Projects were planned. Did I get them all done? Nope. A few, maybe, but not as many as I would have liked. One thing I did manage to get done was a year-in-review page from last year (probably because it was an assignment at work, so it was added to a schedule and I had to commit to it).
I've done a year-in-review book at Shutterfly as a Christmas gift a few years ago, but this was the first time I tried it in layout form. And you know what? I really liked it. I scheduled one evening to complete the page, selected some of my favorite photos from the year, printed them in template form, printed them onto an 8 1/2" x 11" page, typed and printed journaling, trimmed, and voila!
If there is one page you must get done this year, it's a year-in-review page. You spend time typing up that year-in-review Christmas letter, don't you? So why not make a page for your scrapbook, too?
Have a safe and wonderful New Year!
