WOOT WOOT!!! We made it! Thirty-one straight days of scrapbooking. WOW!!! If you've just wandered in in the middle of the show, click here to read about how 31 Pages in 31 Days got started, what immersion scrapbooking is, and why it works for me.
It's been an amazing month, and drumroll, please.....I am pumped to share that my personal final page count for the month is 52 pages!!! I think that might be a record for the #31pagesin31days challenge series. What an awesome boost to my albums this has been.
Today I have the final inspiration layout to share, and then we'll get to some fun stuff like free prizes! I tried to save a really good page for the last spread of the year. This one counts in my book, if for no other reason than it took me forever to fussy-cut all those animals!
The super cute Birthday Memories suite is adorable, but I only got the papers and not the matching stamps and dies, so having to hand-cut them is my fault : ) but ya gotta make cutbacks somewhere, right?
One thing bothers me about this paper. The eye naturally wants to read from left to right. But the animals are all marching right to left, so my title piece had to be in the upper left corner (usually a design no-no). However, I helped ameliorate this issue by adding the smaller text in the lower right corner, so the eye could go there first and then travel backwards along the parade of critters and wind up at the headline. It's a little thing, but scrapbookers care about details like that!
