A Year At A Glance...

I did a layout similar to this one and I just love to see how much can change in a year when it comes to seeing their photos month-by-month all laid out on one page!!

I used a sketch by Kristy Lee at (Topaz #4) and with a little modification of photo placement, I managed to finish Owen's year at a glance layout!

Here's the sketch...

Here's my take...

I used Crate Paper's Toy Box collection, which I got from my awesome swap buddy in the summer swap box exchange!  Super cute collection...I love the old school retro feel of it.  Added some AC Thickers and a few brads, buttons and ribbon from my own collection and VOILA!  I pretty pleased with how it turned out, even though I feel as though I could have embellished a bit more...however, it was time to step away from this layout...LOL!  

What a cute boy!!!

I'm adding this in...because it's just too funny!  This is the layout I did for Joely's "Growing Like A Weed" frist year page...totally different sketch...very similar!

This is Kristy Lee's sketch for MWM #2...from July 2010!!!

And this is where I took it!

LOL...look familiar!  


  1. I love how this turned out Jana! Such cuties you have!

  2. Jana, I love these layouts so much! I am going to have to do a layout like this! I am so glad you were able to use the stuff from your box!

  3. Beautiful layouts, the pictures are adorable!
