Keeping Track of Life: February

Keeping Track of Life (KTOL) is a monthly class taught by my friend, Krista at my LSS, The Paperie. It's a Project Life inspired class. Each month we get together with our pictures and make a layout and fill out a divided page protector with pictures, ephemera and stories.

I finally finished my KTOL February pages this week. I admit it, I was procrastinating. Last weekend I determined to finish it all up. I made some coffee, put on some fun tunes and did just that.

I start each month with a page from my art journal calendar. (You can read more about my plan to make my own calendar here and see my post about this page here.)


Here's the first side of the divided page protector.


The picture of the fish is from our school field trip to the Fluvarium. I love having flip up elements when I can't decide on a single picture.


And here is the back side of the page...


This month, I kept Ben's Valentines and some things that he made. I added his initial to the 8.5x11" page protector - just in case I forget who made what.


I have one for Gabriel as well. This is something I do every month. I am that mom - you know the one that hates to throw out things her kids make.


Here is the layout we made in class. I only needed to add the journaling so it was quick and easy to finish.


This left me with the B side of the 12x12" page protector. I decided to make another page. It's about Gabriel's 100 Days of School project that Sam "helped" him make.


I think I am starting to get the hang of this kind of memory keeping. I definitely see the value of it and understand it's popularity. So, I'm going to give myself time to figure this out. I've been traditional scrapping for years so I've got a process in place but that doesn't mean I can't learn something new and enjoy discovering a new process.

Thanks for stopping by!
