For 2009, I'm doing the Album in a Year project from Amanda Probst's column in the 2008 issues of CK Magazine. This is my version of the October project. You can see Amanda's version for '07 on her blog at http://amandaprobst.squarespace.com/. You can see my other finished LO's for this project in my gallery in my 2009 Album and Month LO's album: '09 Month by Month; January - I Predict; February - 10 Things I LOVE this Month; March - As Luck would have it; April - By the Numbers; May - Faces of May; June - We Were Here; July - What We'll Remember; August - These Photos; September - Lessons Learned.
I downloaded the title from Amanda as a pdf file and printed it on my patterned paper. I don't have a large format printer so to print the journaling above the pics, I cut the bg pp at 6", created a document in Word in a 6x12" paper size set to landscape, used an approx. 2x2" text box for each caption, and printed directly on my pp. I just used scotch tape to put the bg's back together, and the seam is hidden behind the photos.
The LO is supposed to represent a timeline of my month. Journaling above each photo says:
10.3 my burning bush beginning to change
10.4 apple picking at Harvest Time Orchards
10.10 Miley Cyrus Wonder World Tour
10.15 dance again
10.19 Toy Story 3D all to ourselves
10.20 sewing costume two of three this month
10.21 peak color
10.23 red velvet cheesecake and presents for my birthday
10.25 choosing a pumpkin at Didier Farms
10.30 All Saints' Day Pageant
10.31 a Goth Halloween
This is an example for my March Four Categories Challenge - Category Two ~ Color: Gold. This one is old gold, and I doodled a line border with metallic gold pen. The twist is to use metal - I have metal gears and clock to go with the timepiece theme.
