After we moved I got way behind on PL.
I still had it all out and unpacked so that I could work on it.
But, it always hit back burner for everything else we had going on in our crazy lives at the time!
Well, Christmas Break finally came and I went through hundreds and hundreds of pictures to edit and print to put in my album.
I ordered over 200 pictures from Snapfish the other day and I am anxiously awaiting their arrival.
I decided to not let that stop me from working on my album and I was able to get journaling done for about 10 weeks!
That is a lot....
and I still have 10 weeks to go.
But, I am not letting that get me down....NO....if I can catch up on 10 weeks in one night all I need is one more night and my 2012 album will be complete:)
Of course there are still several pictures missing throughout my album, but they are on their way in the mail!
I thought I would share with you those weeks that I got caught up on and then I would also like to share with you some ideas that I had as I was completing my album!
Here goes nothing:)
First as you can see my binder is OVERFLOWING!! I think I will just get a white signature binder to put the second half in. I have never needed two binders before!
Now you will notice in some of my pictures there are purple post it notes. I got this idea from Jessica at The Mom Creative and I loved it.
If you don't have your picture printed just yet don't let that stop you from working on your album. Just determine what the picture is write it on a post it, and you can still complete your layout.
So, when my pictures come in all I will have to do is round the corners and place them in my album:) That simple!
One of my "Great" ideas was to use a little journaling book I got in pages that I didn't have pictures. I have at least 5-7 pictures for each layout, but those that are slim in pictures got an extra journaling card.
I like how it turned out and I think it's something I will continue to use!
I also am running slim on the traditonal layout plastics, so I am getting really creative because 1: I want to finish this album this week. 2. I have tons and tons of plastics that I don't want to go to waste and although I will continue this in 2013, I will probably order more plastics so I better use what I have!
I also LOVE LOVE the textured card stock for this edition!
It is amazing!!
I am hopeful that they will create card stock for the new kits that are coming out next week!
I can NEVER say enough about what PL means to me.
I ask Chris everyday to promise me that if something happens to me, he will take good care of my albums and show them to Kendall often:)
I know he will!
I hope to do a post later this week telling about the new kit that I am planning on purchasing, my goals for 2013 with my album, and share the end of my 2012 album!!
Sorry I know it's picture over load, but I hope you enjoy looking at my caught up album:) And I know the picture quality isn't great, but it's freezing cold here and I was trying to hurry outside!
