I am happily plugging along with the L.O.A.D. Challenge. I have 19 layouts done this year so far. Some are single page and some are double page layouts. When the challenge is completely done I will stack them all up and take a picture.
This is the layout I did today. I really like it. You'll note that one of my predictions this year for "self" is I will stretch myself creatively and this layout is one of those "stretches". I very rarely do layouts with out pictures and I rarely use such trendy paper...but like I said, I like it. It was inspired by the January issue of Creating Keepsakes and the column "Album in a Year". I'm going to try to complete the whole year of layout ideas. February's layout is "My 10 Favorite Things". That will be fun. This layout is also my first official layout for 2008 - all other layouts I have worked on are for previous years.
I think if you click on the picture you can get a closer look and actually read the journaling.
