One-A-Day Challenge

So the girls at MLPA set a challenge to try to do one page a day for the month of January. I started out strong... kept it going. Then the 6th arrived. I knew once I had to return back to work, I'd fizzle out! But so far, I've gotten 5 more pages done and that's a good thing. Here's a re-cap of those 5...

January 1st... Expedition Everest

This was from our trip to Disney World in '06 and highlights their newest ride "Expedition Everest". Woohoo... a 2-pager! Since it had just opened up a few months before we were there, I put together a hidden journaling block with interesting facts about the ride. I swear it's straight in person... the left page doesn't really slope off like this. I'm just not in the mood to re-scan it.

January 2nd... Flowers of Support

This one was emotional and I cried the majority of the time scrapping it. Friends sent me these flowers in August while I was going through a very emotional week. The journaling is hidden behind the large photo. I still cry when I think of their kindness.

January 3rd... Crazy Hair

This one makes me laugh. Matthew snapped this picture while we were headed to Baltimore in July. I love driving with the windows open and this is what it does. This page was fun, fun, fun to make but took a lot of planning. It was based on one of the January '09 Page Maps sketches.

January 4th... Just Us

I really like how this one turned out. It's a lift from a page posted on Crate Paper's site. Loved it so much, I had to do one of my own. It's a picture of Matthew & me on Thanksgiving night. It's a circular page... ignore that stark white square behind it!

January 5th... Little Surprises

Another one from our Baltimore Trip. It uses the BYOM November Kit and is all about the unexpected changes from Matthew moving from the back seat of the car to the front seat.

And that's where I lost my oomph. I've still got mojo, but I'm oomph-deficient. It'll come back... right after I'm feeling a little better. In the meantime, more & more pages are being flagged in my scrap magazines for inspiration.
