one of my first digiscrapping pages was a retrospective of the year 2010.
i found the inspiration in a paper scrapping forum. they suggested questions like:
the most beautiful day of the year,
the emotion of the year,
the year´s worst day,
a dream come true,
an unaccomplished dream,
new discoveries,
favourite photo of the year,
a beautiful place away from home,
and new year´s resolutions.

I did this page for 2011, and this is my third now. I really enjoyed taking the time to reflect the year that has passed.
