Yes, it is nearly half way through 2010, and I am still back last year.
Anyhow, I drafted out a random selection of photos at the end of the year, that I felt told the story of our year (and also some just because they were favourites!) I then uploaded them into Snapfishs' album builder...and I wasn't happy. Not happy at all. I couldn't work out how to make it better, so left it.
I was going to make a template and drop all my photos in, after being inspired by Nicole. Don't know why I didn't think of it before. But I just didn't get around to it. Then the great CZ brough out her "One Month" template over at Designer Digitals....SOLD. Done deal. Now obviously she focused on doing it all on a month by month basis. I am adapting it to suit my year. Might not be heavy on the journalling, but it will bring all of the photos together in a way that WILL make me happy!
Today I started on the first page (after the page that the window looks at. Why do they do that?!) I've tipped the template on its side, and made it 8x 10.335something so it will print correctly at snapfish.
My journalling will most likely be one little spot in each page or so summarising events. Deep I know.
And I have to get cracking on this project - the two for one sale deal at snapfish ends at the end of the month! (the second album will be a simple album of full single page photos from the recent wedding we attended, a belated and surprise gift for the happy couple).
PS. Can you guess what the theme colours will be for this album? ;-)
