BY2010 - January

It worked :) I scheduled this page yesterday to go live at 1 minute past midnight and it seems to have worked. Sadly I couldn't get my images to fit the page, so instead I made my template wider! You'd never know I program websites for a living :s My argument is I am a programmer not a designer. Even so I'm sure I could come up with something cooler for my blog design...

So these are my entries so far for BY2010 - apologies for not following the spec at all, but it's great to have some motivation by joining a group and to get inspiration too.


I decided upon a new scrapbook album, this one is from K&Co.

Page 1 - The Venue

This was my first ever scrapbook page :) I'm thinking now, even after a month of scrapbooking that maybe I tried to get too much on this page. Perhaps I should have done a double spread and thought of something else for the first page.

Page 2/3 - Bride getting ready

I had so many photos I wanted to use on this page that I did loads of mini ones with Snapfish's collage feature. I think this is my favourite scrapbook page I've done yet, I'm really happy with it. The note was left for me in my hotel room by my hubby (to be) and I kept it :) I knew it would come in use someday!

And here is the next blog in the list for the BY2010 challenge:

  3. Hi Sam, in answer to your question on my blog I use quite a few techniques to cut circles out, sometimes I use a knife and cut around plates, other times I'll print a pictue of a circle and cut just inside the line with scissors. I also have a fiskars circle cutter and a craft robo. HTH :)
