Since I finished sharing all the photos from my France album last week, I decided to return to my month-at-a-glance album. I haven't done much with it for a long time and after flipping through it this week, I realized that it needs some attention and work.
The album is part of the KTOL project that I work on each year. KTOL is short for "Keeping Track of Life" and it's a class that my friend, Krista, teaches at my local scrapbook store (The Paperie). Each month we create a layout and pocket page spread with our monthly stack of photos. It's a lot of fun and I enjoy scrapping with my friends for a couple of hours each month.
I haven't been working on my album in between classes so I bunch of half done pages and missing layouts. Specifically, I have to work on a layout for each month - that's all 7
layouts we've made so far in class. Some layouts are just missing photos
but I missed a couple of classes so those layouts are not even started. The situation is the same for
the pocket pages. I have February's pockets pages finished but all the
other months are not done. That's 6 months of pocket pages and 7 layouts - if we're still counting.
Here are some of my almost done pocket pages for January.
feels a bit overwhelming but I know it is doable because I have been
here before. Each year, I fall behind with this project. I am not a
chronological scrapbooker so this doesn't worry me but I know that if I
fall too behind it will be too overwhelming to finish. All the work is worth it though because I love this album when
So, now what? For me, the key to finishing this project is to make a list of what I need to do
to get "caught up" and to work on that list each week. Having a to-do list will keep me focused when I sit down to work. As I work my way through my to-do list, I will share my progress as I go.
Wish me luck!
Thanks for stopping by!
