Month In Review Love

New for 2011 is  'Month In Review' ,  a brand new monthly challenge for subbers and non-subbers alike. It follows on from the successful and popular 'Yearbook' challenge from 2010.
Here's how its shaping up so far ...

I wanted to create a simple intro page to welcome readers into my album, the Studio Calico star really packs a punch , I have painted it with a Jenni Bowlin paint Dabber in 'Cough Syrup' to make it a real focal point.

A layered journalling card and some ribbon completes the look. You can't quite read it as the prop ribbon is slightly obscuring it but the bottom right reads 'month in review' , the banner stamp is from my own stash.

Ah January !! Its a funny old month isn't it very long until pay day , the excitement of Christmas is all forgotten and all we have is dark nights and cold weather...thank goodness for scrapbooking 

I have been lucky this year as apart from the usual high points of New Year and Ivans Birthday I was lucky enough to get a back stage tour of the Royal Opera House and the English National Opera in London.

I tend to make 'collage' pictures in Picasa as they give flexibility to include as many little photo's as you need on these 6 x 6 pages.

Even the smallest scrap of the same paper or element carried over both pages will give your project 'flow' and cohesion.

Have fun with your January pages  xx
