So here's my PL album so far.
Title page - this isn't definitive, more like a placeholder. As I continue throughout the year, I may come back to this title page and do some tweaking to make the title page best reflect the album. But for now I'm pretty happy with how this turned out.
January - part 1
Of course, as January isn't over yet, this is only the first half of the January spread (apologies for photo glare - I've still to work out best room and light for taking these photos):
As well as the title card, there's a photo of me contemplating a new year, a snap capturing Chloe in one of her favourite pastimes and also a combo photo of Chloe taking Poppy dog to her Puppy (or Poppy) training classes.
January - extra insert
Already in January, there's been one special occasion that I wanted to make it into my PL album - my 40th birthday! (Yes, I am THAT old now!) So I took another page protector and filled it front and back with the photos, details and journaling that captures what I want to remember about the day. This page will sit smack bang in the middle between my January left hand page and, when it's complete, right hand page.
In the UK we're waiting (hands clasped with glee) for the PL supplies to be available on Amazon.co.uk - thanks Becky and Scrapbookers Inner Circle for making that happen!
So, in terms of supplies, I've been using some "leftovers" from last year's PL turquoise edition as well as some digi supplies that I bought from the Jessica Sprague and other sites and printed out, and some bits and bobs from my stash. I'm kinda liking the way this looks, so unlike last year, I'm not going to stick with one edition. I'm just going to use whatever supplies fit with my mood when I'm updating the album. Most of the journaling so far has been typed, but I'll be aiming to include some handwritten journaling from both me and Chloe, as well as the bits and bobs of everyday life.
So far, so loving it!
