As you know I love to watch podcasts and videos. The one I love to watch is Creation with Christina(link on my blog title page). She has established a challenge to create a 12 Month Scrapbook. We last year, I turned 40 so I decided to do "Year at 40" album. This was my January page since it is my birthday month. My album is 8x8. The green background paper is by Brazzil. I used rubon's for the month. I took pictures of all the gifts I received and used the Marvy Uchida scallop to cut them out. The picture is 4x6 and the brown background is Brazzil. I used some ribbon from Micheals(not sure of the brand). The brad I made with my I-Top, I so love that tool. The journal sheet came from a $1.00 pack from Micheals. I am so bad about writing things down. This is the first-time that I am posting a project of my for all to see. I started scrapping in August 2004. So I am by no means an expert and I still have a lot to learn about "rules of 3", colors and visulaization, etc.... so enjoy.
