The Year in Review

It has been said that reflection is good for the soul. In that case, this is the perfect time of year for looking back at the past twelve months. It’s fun to go back through the myriad pictures and relive those events. Or you can do some reflecting on another aspect of your life – whatever suits your fancy. Here’s how the Creative Team members used Katie’s cool Year in Review Layered Template No. 04.

LT944436XUma (iUma) reduced the size of the template slightly, chose a photo from each month, and journaled about the event to create twelve little vignettes chronicling life in 2011. I love the seasonal patterned paper she used as a background and the way she changed the typeface for the months.

Paula (PaulaSG) also highlighted a picture from each month on her layout. Her journaling tells the story of each shot in a one-page review of 2011. How clever she was to coordinate the color of the month by the picture and in the journaling. The bright colors of her page just pop on that black background.

I reviewed 2011 but with a little different slant. When Carol (carollee) posted this page reviewing her layouts for a year, it went straight into my favorites folder for a future lift. The future is now! I had fun going back through my gallery to select a favorite page from each month to highlight on this page. Thanks for the inspiration, Carol!
