New project

So last night I had a craving for sweets. I had nothing in the house that would do. I put my shoes on twice and removed them twice. I decided not to indulge and instead, kept my hands busy while starting a new project. I saw on Shimelle's blog a new project that appealed to me. It's called "Scrap Your Day" and consists of taking photographs all through the day on the 25th of each month and then making a scrapbook layout out of it, following a few guidelines. You can see a few pictures of my book here, pages all ready to receive the photographs and journaling. The format is 6" x 12" and I made it out of cardstock and paper I was keeping for just the right project. This seemed as good a time as any to use them. The quote you see here is a sticker from 7gypsies. I love the results so far and am looking forward to taking pictures on Friday to put them in this new little scrapbook of mine.

Have you started anything new lately?

What a cool thing to do, to save a few days as "special photo days". I like the idea, better have a photogenic 25th though! :-)

Have fun!
New project... I've made balls, I'll update my blog about them as soon as I have photos ready! :-)

I love the book. Your prepared pages look great. What a neat way to chronical a part of your life.

Will you do a normal day on Friday, or something special since you're photo journaling it?

Looking forward to playing along ... just trying to come up with a calendar/album to use as a base! I got some fun pictures yesterday!

What a fantastic idea!!! I can`t believe you put all these pages together in such a short time. And to think that you were going out to buy some treats. Your time was put to better usage. I should try that sometimes instead of reaching for my "candies", hehe. I can`t wait to see your finished project.

I haven't did any art lately , to busy with grandbabies and gardening.

Special photo days sounds like a great idea.
