The Use Your Stash challenge over at SS is ON! The first challenge is:
1. Organize your Scrap Scrap
2. Create a layout or 2 page spread using 12 photos from 2011 as a Year in Review layout.
3. Create as many pages as you can in the month of January, use your stash only!
4. Don't buy anything!
So, here is my Year in Review Layout - 2 page layout featuring the highlights of 2011 in pictures. The Digi Template is from Ella Publishing's Take 12 Template #5. Journaling is written below the 2 pages.
January met us with a week of snow days & lots of pics of Nathan & Sophie. In March, we became Zoo Atlanta Members & have used our membership a lot. Nathan played Upward Soccer this year at a local church. We were able to spend some time at the cottage with Ben’s family in June. Nathan turned 7 in August & started 2nd grade at DES. We finally got to attend our first Atlanta Braves game in August as well. Nana & Grandad came for a visit in April & September. While they were here, Ben & I celebrated our 12 year anniversary in September. In October, for Sophie’s 2nd birthday, we all went to the Georgia Aquarium & became members. I continue to scrapbook & was able to attend a few retreats this year, including the 2 Skyline retreats I plan. Nan & Poopa came down to hang out with Ben & the kids while I was at Skyline in October. It was great having both sets of parents visit this year. In November, we travelled up to Canada for Thanksgiving. While we were there, Nana & Grandad finally got married after 30 years together! We had Christmas at Nan & Poopa’s house with Great Grannie Jackson. We sure have been blessed this year with precious time with family and friends!!!!
