Life 2011 – Album Update

Here are a few more pages from my Life 2011 album.  I’m still trying to catch up and not getting very far.  Seems like during the summer I’d rather sit out back with a gin fizz and watch the lightening storms than be cooped up inside scrapbooking.  In the winter though it’s way too cold for that so I am positive I will catch up before the end of the year.  I’m still keeping notes and “stuff” from month to month so I won’t forget the little details.

This view shows how I’m using those baseball style page protectors.  I’m using 8.5 x 11 My Life & Story templates for the main pages of the album.  I also cut up the month dividers that came with project life kit and stick the month number in one of the pockets.  These pockets are great for ticket stubs, receipts, smaller photos, etc.  I like including cards too.  I just three-hole punch birthday cards, holiday cards, etc and add them right in the album.

This layout shows Ashleigh getting her first big girl bike.  She did so great until she got spooked by a dog!  Then she took a little digger and scraped up her cheek.

I can’t get enough of her drawings.  I love the one on the right.  I asked her what it was and she promptly told me “it’s the mouse house”.  Can you find the mouse?

I’ve got some new ideas in store for Life 2012.  For those of you using the 2011 set – do you have enough templates or could you use one more add on?  If you do want an add on are you looking for lots of little photos or room for bigger ones or more journaling or???  Please leave a comment and let me know what you could use.
