My Goal - January Pages

Do you guys remember the personal scrapping goal I set for myself for this year? Since I really want to get my 2011 album printed by the end of this year (yah, I know I'm behind) for every month this year I'm going back and scrapping my most cherished photos from that month's previous year. So this January I scrapped my 2011 January photos (plus some current ones from 2012). And guess what? I actually did it! I have all my important January 2011 photos scrapped and not only that I also have all my January 2012 photos scrapped. Woohoo! I guess I shouldn't tell you that I barley took any photos last month, right? Shame on me. I promise to do better in February.

I thought I would show you all my pages from January 2011 and January 2012.

This is a page of January 2011 photos that I just scrapped this January. It was fun going back and seeing the change in my girls in just one year.

This is a January 2011 page that I actually had scrapped in 2011. It's a double pager. Love double pagers.

I used the Iron Scrapper Grab Bag - No longer available.

Another January 2011 page that I had already scrapped. Okay, okay, I only had to scrap one January 2011 page but at least I did it and now I think I have a great collection of January pages to print in my 2011 album.

Here's a January 2012 double pager that I just scrapped a few weeks ago.

And here's another double pager (I see a pattern for my 2012 album - guess I need to make some more double page templates!)I just scrapped this weekend from photos I took this weekend! Unbelievable! So as of right now I have all my January 2011 and January 2012 photos scrapped!!! I'm so excited.

And then I don't know if you remember but I was also working on a recipe book last year that I kind of let slide. So my goal this year is to make a few recipe pages each month and then have a nice album to print at the end of the year. So here's what I made this month. These are recipes and photos from 2011.

Hope this inspires to keep on top of your 2012 goals!

Love your pages and your templates. I have the same goal this year. It's actually working out well and I surprisingly don't feel a ton of pressure, since I am just making sure I scrap each month of last year before the month ends this year. So far, it has been so easy that I've been able to get this year's done at the same time. Love learning from your blog!
