That's it! 29 days have come and gone. This time was by far the easiest LOAD yet. I believe that the reason Lain E. created this challenge has really sunk in for me...yes, you can let go of the pressure that it has to be perfect and all matchy-matchy. You can create a layout a day and do it quickly; most were created start to finish in less than an hour. I was happy with most of the layouts I created....but this one, well, the letters will have to go! Not sure what I will replace them with...definately something. The colors and the photos are just too perfect to be paired with those letter stickers. So, I will need to complete another LOAD in the near seems that I'm not quite cured yet...perfectionism wins tonight.

The Joy of Love album is filling up! This is page 16: Together. This photo was taken at Jon's 20th Class Reunion!

I realized tonight that my last three layouts have been on backgrounds of different colors. I've branched out...not my usual kraft, black, red or white. Look at me go!

One more day of LOAD for February 2012. So sad that it is over...but never fear, we are scrappin' this weekend! Yay us!

If I had created yesterday's layout and this one together I'm not sure this would have been the end result. I don't really think they flow together well but in the end it's done! I was shocked that I found this photo and above that, it was printed! Wow!

Maybe tomorrow I will create a page about her 12th birthday. I seem to be on a roll! Not so long ago (October, I think) I created her 10th birthday pages. She's 16 let's see, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, oh my!

For several years I have planned to create this layout for which there are no photos of the birthday girl! The reason there are no photos of the birthday girl is because her dad took her and two friends to Kearney to shop for her birthday....but it was three weeks after her actual day that they were finally able to coordinate it! Then for a looooong time, I could not locate the envelope of receipts and needed to remember to take a camera to "fake" the mall photos later. Finally this half is done, other half will be the actual day with photos of the birthday girl! This was her 11th birthday....5 years ago this month! BAD, bad mom!!

Keeping on with the Joy of Love album in 8x8 size. I think I have completed 8 pages in this 28 page album to date. I have ideas for most of the prompts and am pondering 3 or 4 yet. Enjoy!
