Take 12: August and September

It is time for Take Twelve again. Each month in 2012, I’m joining Ella Publishing’s Take Twelve challenge. The goal of the 2012 Take Twelve Project is to take 12 photos on the 12th day of each month for a full 12 months—and scrapbook them! You can join in the fun any month of the year.

August really got away from me. I took my photos on August 12, but then went out of town to a conference on Aug. 15 and returned the day before my semester began. I should have known that I would not get my layout finished before leaving on the 15th. Oh well, it is finished today. I’m playing around with divided page protectors a bit. I like the appeal of including a diverse set of stories on one 12×12 instead of splitting them up over several 12×12 layouts. This time, I kept the paper and color combination consistent but split up each story into a separate section of the layout. I also managed to use several older supplies on this layout. The pattern paper is from Crate Paper circa 2006. I think the letters for yum, bike, and pony are from Doodlebug from probably about the same time.

Oh, September 12. What a normal, uneventful day, yet somehow I completely forgot to take any photos until we were at swimming lessons at 5 p.m. I took a few photos there and decided to focus on “after school routine.” Sadly, I forgot to take more photos at home that evening. So, I though, “I’ll try again on the 13th.” Yeah, not much better. On the 14th, I remembered first thing in the morning. I took more than 12 photos, but only eight photos made the cut for the layout. I opted to print two of the photos in 3×3 instead of only 2×2. So my 12 on the 12th, is 8 on the 14th. That pattern paper is Pink Paislee circa 2008–more older paper. I could never figure out how to deal with the owl on the paper. I added some neon pink puff paint around the owl. I’m not super crazy about the color, but I wanted to try out puff paint on a layout.
