4x6 photo love - October

Holy Moly has it really been almost 4 weeks since I last blogged?? I guess I really needed a break from blogging. Sorry about my absence!! But, I now have tons of projects to share!! But as we get into full holiday swing, I have a feeling my posting will be sporadic at best! I am planning to do a December daily again this year and I would love to say that I will be keeping up with it daily, but I didn't actually finish the 2010 album untill well into I am not making any plans or promises to myself that I know I am sure to break. I will take photos often and keep track of the daily fun with a notebook or journal (just like I did last year) so I can really enjoy the season, then put the actual book together as it fits in with my schedule. I will work on it in December, but I am not going to put pressure on myself to keep up with it daily. As long as I am recording the memories of the day I figure I will be in good shape!! So that's my December Daily plan!!

On to the layout I want to share. I put it together for the latest 4x6 photo love class over at 2 peas. This time using 10 photos on a layout. In this latest installment, Shimelle uses a 10 photo page protector (5 photos on each side). I don't have any of these specific page protectors so I just went with the layout design. Here's what I came up with...

This is very much a photo-centric layout with little journaling. I also had 2 other photos from this particular activity, not worthy in my opinion of a full page to themselves. So I decided to add an 8x8 supplemental page for those 2 photos and more journaling. Here are those to additional pages...

I used lots of American Crafts Margarita (with a few Amy Tangerine leaves) in keeping with the theme of the album. These are layouts from our Hawaii trip back in 2004 and that's the collection I am using to give the pages some continuity. I am also happy to report that I am almost done with this album!!! Hopefully I will be able to call it complete before 2011...but if not that's OK too!!

Thanks for stopping by!!
