A Year in a Scrapbook

scrap your day...

Today is the 25th…and the 12th 25th at that. That picture marks a dozen shots taken early in the morning out the very same window. And the final album prompt is online here.

Thanks so much for all your support throughout this yearlong project! There will be new things to come, but I need to wrap this up first, so make sure you post a link to your album online if you haven’t already.

If you want to continue the project after today, you can set email reminders to yourself here and the materials will still be here for you.

If you want to hear about the next project, be sure to sign up for pretty paper. true stories. in your inbox., which once or twice a month will let you know the highlights of what’s going on around here!

So for one final time, Happy Scrap your Day Day!

New to the project? You can still join in. The materials will be online indefinitely so you can choose a year and day of the month that works for you. For more Scrap your Day information, check out:

Beautiful days are for scrapbooks

yellow
spring

I am so loving this surprising week of perfect spring weather. Please, please stay as long as possible, even if it keeps me away from my computer and things I should be getting done!

But while I’m thinking of things that need to be done…the very end of Scrap your Day is coming very soon. Do you have pages online somewhere? Please leave me a link in the comments. I’d love to do a big wrap-up post when the 25th comes around this month and link to everyone’s blogs, galleries and so forth!

PS: I have the last few class kits from a range of classes I’ve taught over the last few months on sale here for those of you who are here in the UK.

Time to Scrap your Day!

pardon?

It’s the 25th, and that means we’re on to month eleven of the year-long project!

You can download a new photo fact sheet and a new album prompt!

Can’t wait to see what expressions you catch today!

Happy Scrap your Day day!

Oct 25th all

Happy 25th to you, Scrap your Day ladies! You can download January’s album prompt here.

[If you’re waiting for the last This Year prompt, it will be up shortly—just having a bit of trouble with uploads going very slowly and stopping so going to take a little break and try again in a bit. It’s on its way!]

Merriest of Scrap your Day days!

Christmas morning

A very merry holiday to you and yours! We’ve been having a lovely day so far with The Boy’s sister and her other half…off to see more family this evening, then we are also looking forward to Faux Christmas, as various members of the family have seen fit to do exciting things like spend their fiftieth birthday and Christmas on the beach in Australia or cruise around the Caribbean. We promise not to hold it against them when we are all back together for a big meal and more gift exchanging in the new year.

I’m happy to report that The Boy has continued his lifelong tradition of polishing off his selection box before Christmas breakfast, while I will try to make mine last until January.

Scrap your Day girls—you can download the December album prompt here. Happy scrapping!

Christmas Eve greetings

December Reminder

Well, December has thrown a lot at our house that we weren’t expecting! The loveliest in ongoing spam attacks (hopefully now to a point where I can publish this!), Hotmail deciding that I am a spammer, a ridiculous winter bug that totally wiped me out and various other bits and pieces to be filed under ‘Stuff you really don’t need to happen in December’. But here we are, just in time, with Christmas decorations and a kitchen of food ready to cook.

Of course this month the 25th falls on a day when you are likely to be taking quite a few photos—so Scrap your Day will probably be the easiest yet! This month’s photo challenge is a review of all the little tricks we’ve tried over the last eight months, and you can download it here.

For Journal your Christmas participants, you’re welcome to join in Scrap your Day this month and then decide whether you’d like to keep going with the project in 2009. Scrap your Day is a free project—it’s basically the idea to photograph the same day every month (most of us are snapping on the 25th) and scrap all those photos in an album that shows a year in your life. Every month there are photo notes and a sketch for the album format many of us are using…but you are free to make the project your own!

So much more I want to share but will leave it here for now, as present wrapping calls!
