Mini Album - 2009 Observations

I was reflecting all that I have done this year and I realised i kinda of forgotten some things. And I wish I stay in that memory a bit more of some important events. Wish i had journal or record some things more. So now, I decided to make this album for 2009 - as a journal, as a book to record all that will happen for 2009. The concept is the same as Ali Edwards Dec Daily Album where you add as you go along. I like this concept alot cos it will make us more aware of each day. Capture that which matters. I adapted the concept to a monthly one - to take note of what happen each month. It can be an event, or just a photo. Or some random journaling. So, at the end of 2009, I will have an album which I had taken along for that year and recorded some of the things which I may have forgotten as the year close. Here is it:

1. The Jenni Bowlin Calendar cards are perfect for this project. I can use all of them in 1 project. I position them like tabs on each page. 2. I stick to black, cream and red theme. Some of my fav colours. All papers from Jenni Bowlin. 3. I added some journaling cards, Bingo cards from Jenni Bowlin. 4. And of course, can't do without my fav stamps. I use these 2 sets of stamps alot in this project. - Fontwerks Patterna set - October Afternoon 'save the date" These 2 sets are very versatile, esp the Patterns........ I use them like background stamps....... to create lines... so much you can get out of this set. And these 2 stamps are ON SALE over at YSS. At 25% off. Quick grab them before they are gone.

What a great prject! Love those JB tags on there. I need to do this, too. I think we let so many little things pass us by and then forget them.
