January P12

My bloggy pal Alison and I didn't really love the new direction of Project 12 this year, so we decided to do our own thing. Here's a quick post to show you the double-pager I did for a January wrap-up:

I used my February counterfeit kit to make this one, and I quite like the result. I used this sketch that Alison chose from Becky Fleck's January Page Maps:

but I had to change things up a bit due to the fact that I had barely any good photos from January! A couple of close-ups:
I thought these photos of Brenna were hysterical! She was pitching such a fit before our walk, and I don't think it was because her momma dresses her funny (well, maybe a little!)
I really like the accent card on this page, it's from a new Simple Stories line called Year-ography - love all their papers! I painted the edges of all my photos to make them stand out a bit on the busy CTMH patterned paper, and stitched and distressed some of the edges to give it all a bit of character, but other than that, a very simple layout. Now, I better run, because I think my computer has a virus and I'm just waiting for it to crash again! Hopefully I'll be able to comment on everyone's lovely creations and get in on some challenges before the end of the month, but I better keep my fingers crossed! Thanks for your understanding, everyone, hugs, Roxy.


  1. Looks great Roxy!!! I love the title!

  2. Aww, love her little vest. :) Great 2 pager. Love the crumpled edges and how you did the journal ing strips!

  3. Well done.. lovely pictures.. take care

  4. Looks great Roxy! She may think she looks funny but we all know the truth ... she's just so darn CUTE!!!
    Love your painted edges. I have got to remember that trick!

  5. Fab page Roxy, love the photos of Brenna, she looks so cute! Can't believe how big Hunter has got too! not a puppy anymore :(

    Hope you sort out your computer issues soon.

    Hugs, Carole xxx

  6. What a sweet layout. I like the rustic colors on the teal like that! :)

  7. haha I love those pictures of Brenna! They're stinkin adorable! I think I like taking pictures of my kids when they're mad and having a fit better than when they're smiling...I'm just evil like that! lol I think I'm in LOVE with Simple Stories! Have you seen their new boys line? I just made a layout with it tonight...hopefully I'll get it posted tomorrow :) Lovin your layout and good for you for being organized enough to even do project 12! The closest I ever got to it was thinking about it! lol

  8. Roxy, this project 12 layout is great! I recognize some of that paper (I have it in my stash so I just might dig it out and lift this layout!) I really like all the journalling strips too.

  9. Great pages Rox!! I love all of the little bits of journalling. One of my good friends is doing a Project Life this year. I wanted to try it but the kits were sold out. I'm going to try and make my own and I know there are a lot of journalling cards, etc on Pinterest!!
    Brenna is too cute!! Even when she is having a fit (: I hope your computer starts to feel better soon!!!!
