One Month At A Time: November 2010

Sketch for October’s photos and prompts for scrapbooking November

There are 61 days until 2011.  Time is a crazy idea, it’s too slow or too fast.  Time drags and races, it ages you and heals you.  The true problem with time, is I can’t buy it, bottle it or steal it.  This month definitely went by too fast and having my baby turn three was only a reminder of elusive time really is.  The only constant in my life is that my kids will continue to grow up and I don’t like it.

It’s pushed me back to wanting to scrapbook more than ever.  I want to remember this moments, these bits of time that are precious.  My kids are adorable and funny and changing every day.  I need to document that.  I fell off the wagon so to speak for a bit this year, just making a page here or there just to do it.  (Of course staying on top of my monthly pages)  Seeing my littlest turn three has me wandering memory lane thinking about when my older kids were younger and their stories.  I want to get their stories of yesterday on a page and all my new stories of the little ones today.  So I’ve decided this month, I am going to make more time to get these down on pages.  I am setting a goal this month to do a layout every other day.  Yes a lofty goal in the beginning of a holiday season, but I’m determined.  I’d love if you would join me in this goal we can chat in the forums about how we’re doing.

Since I did this layout today (had to wait for halloween pictures after all!); I’m already 1 for 1!


I was inspired by the Masterful Scrapbook Design seminar to mix some patterns on this page. I love how it turned out.


Here’s the pdf of the sketch.

Here’s the psd file of the sketch.

And it’s not One Month without a by the numbers sheet

    What a great sketch! Thanks for sharing it – but both the pdf & psd versions are actually the pdf file.

    So hoping to get caught up on these this weekend – I thought I had printed out photos for Sept but didn’t so I need to print those and this months and then pick my paper and go – I need to do 4 LOs this weekend to get caught up.

    Good luck on your LO every other day. I would love to do that but I know once October 1st hits it seems to go sooo fast.

    What a great idea. Just wish I had found it sooner. But I am sure I can adapt it for next year, right? :) Thank you for the wonderful sketches and prompts. I look forward to trying this out myself.

    I know it is already mid November- but I will get this one done today and I’ll be up to date again.
    This is such a fab idea and you are doing it again next year aren’t you Tami?

    Yes Celia, I’m doing it again. A few fun tweaks but will still have the great sketches from Debbie and lots of encouragement :D
