If I were to be completely honest, I would tell you that I'm only halfway through January when it comes to the completion of my annual pocket page album. I don't scrapbook weekly layouts, but rather group photos chronologically and create spreads based on photos with a common theme. Even though I'm behind in getting my layouts done, my pictures through the beginning of April are printed and have been placed in the page protectors and album. I just need to add my cards, journaling and embellishments.

A couple of weeks ago I had a creative team deadline for Paislee Press and was delighted to see that the collection being released involved elements about home. We have been spending quite a bit of time at home lately in an effort to save money and tackle some projects that needed doing. In addition, we've been blessed with comfortable weather and sunshine so we've have the added bonus of hanging out on our deck during the evenings and weekends. Hence I had two page + insert spread of photos out on our deck that needed documenting.
As I put together this layout, I repeated a few of the journal cards I had chosen to give the spread a feeling of uniformity. I have noticed that I tend to do that a lot. I like how to makes the spread come together.
I matched in one of the 6x8 papers from the Artiste collection by Paislee Press and pulled little elements from the Magic Hour collection Liz released in the past (May I tell you how much I LOVE that she has a kit devoted to the yummy light of early mornings and late evenings? It makes my photographer's heart all mushy).
I'm pretty happy with how this spread turned out, not to mention the special memories that got documented about our enjoyment of the new deck we built (ourselves!). Hard work really does pay off, my friends.
