"Right now I am working on a Life as We Know It project. I am taking a picture every day and then make one layout each week with those 7 pictures, including notes about each picture. The goal is to take pictures of what we are doing and what is important to us. My kids are also taking pictures and so at the end of the year, I am going to put my layouts together and then add a few pages for each child. I am excited to see the differences in the perspective each of us will have.
I started a thread at DSP for anybody else who is interested in this approach and it is amazingly relaxed. If you want to do one layout per month, great. If you want to do a daily post…that’s fine too. Something in between? No problem! I just want people to celebrate the little moments that make up life in between the birthdays, vacations and Christmas."
What an amazing treat it has been to have Traci Reed, from Traci Reed Designs here with us and to have her share her beautiful calendar toppers for the new year. We have the last set of toppers available for you today and want you to please take the time to head over to Traci's digital store to see what else she has available. It's beautiful stuff!
