Take Twelve December Layout

And here she is. The last Take Twelve layout of the year.

This layout nearly did me in. To make life easier I printed 11 of the photos as a photo collage. They are actually two 3.5x5 inch collages, and  then one photo in the 3.5x5. Then, I lay the three photos out on my paper, and thought it looked horrible. But I played and I played, and I worked and I worked, and my eyes are killing me from moving around so many tiny Lily Bee letter stickers. (But, oh, I love them so. They make it worth losing my 20/20 vision.) It all came together when I added those three tab stickers from Basic Grey. The addition of the red and orange to the color scheme, just made the rest fall into place.

So now Take Twelve 2012 is complete. I have loved this project, I love my album, and I love looking back at all the photos from this year. So totally worth it.

You can upload your layout here until midnight, EST, on Tuesday for a chance to win  a lovely prize from Compendiumpurveyor of inspiring words, books, journals and more.

Hmm, I am considering photo projects for next year. I had a crazy idea to give Project Life a go. I was thinking maybe a mini version, because I know a big 12x12 weekly album will likely end in failure for me. But I've been eyeing some 6x8 albums with divided page protectors. What are your project plans for 2013?

  1. My post from today looks almost exactly like yours LOL
    I actually really like your December layout. Love the colors you chose and the tab stickers. Funny, I also love these Lily Bee stickers! I recently made used them on three Happy birthday cards and one Thank You. I was exhausted at the end LOL

    Project Life - I really want to give it a try. Suddenly I thought it will be a great way to share our everyday life with families in Israel. I am just not good in completing big projects... On the other hand the Seafoam kit is so pretty and I can hear it calling my name :)
