A Year In The Making


Today I would like to share a project that has been in the making since November 2013. I came across this layout on Pinterest a while back and loved the idea so I gave it a try.

My granddaughter Brooklyn was born on November 17th. Each of the pictures are taken closest to the 17th of each month that I was able to get.

I started with 12 (just shy of 3x4) mats that I stamped November through October on. Then each month I would decorate the mat and add it to the 12x12 cardstock background.

I'm very happy with the way this came out that I may want to continue doing this till she graduates high school. It shouldn't be that hard to continue to get a picture each month with all this technology we have these days.

The first mat being newborn so the next sheet would start her 1 year photos and so on.

Let me know what your thoughts are on continuing this project. Is it a good idea or a bad one?
