That's when I discovered the Ella Publishing Company's Take Twelve project. The basic concept is that you take twelve photos on the twelfth day of each month and then create a layout about that day in your life. I still need to go back and do January and March, but February was SUPER easy to do because we threw a surprise baby shower for my friend Barbara that day.
The Take Twelve project does have templates that you can use to figure out how to lay out your photos, but I decide to take a stab at it on my own to see what I could come up with. Twelve photos are A LOT of photos, so I had to create a plan ahead of time so that I knew how to print up my photos.
I'm pretty pleased with the final layout! I knew that I wanted to highlight the guest of honor, but I still needed to have enough room for all the other pics.
