2014 Calendar

The new year had started and I was in need of a new calendar. I usually just use free ones we get from our insurance company, but I wanted something more fun this year. I had looked around when we were out and about and just never found anything to suit my taste.

Then I realized my little brother had given me a coupon for x amount of dollars off for Shutterfly. I knew then that I was going to make my own calendar. It took me half of January to get it done, but I did it. The following are my pages.

JANUARY

FEBRUARY
MARCH

Then I realized Easter was in April this year and since I have a kid with a birthday in April, I resorted to a page I already had made for March. You can see What Is Luck here.

A Pirate’s Day

It’s so much fun going back through old photos. It’s crazy to look back at these days when I realize this kid will be 5 at the end of the week. How did 4 years go by so quickly?

I’m also loving April’s Templatetopia by North Meets South. I’ll probably be using this template pack for many more layouts, so keep an eye out.

I’ll Always Be Your Little Boy

In one of my last posts you’ll remember that I mentioned something about finishing a page, but then finding an error in it. Well it’s taken me a good 2 weeks to get back to revamping the layout. I had it finished a couple times, but due to my program crashing and forgetting to save my completed work – I was back to square one.

I finally took some time this morning and finished it up. I’m still not in love with it, but it’s better than the first go around.

Here’s a look at the first layout:

You’ll notice that I forgot the last ‘l’ in little. The words Little Boy also don’t stand out much. I fixed both those issues and a few more in the completed project:

I decided I didn’t like the frames I had used previously, so I found a couple that came with the kit and used those instead. The alphas that came in the kit were only in blues and pinks, so I recolored it with a paper included in the kit. I think it helps it stand out a bit more.
