April 12th found me in Ohio on business. Taking photos throughout the day was challenging. I netted 10 photos (all iphone), and called it good... *the two photo-less squares are digi designs from Digital Design Essentials
All photos taken with my iphone - I think that next month I'll set a reminder to take a photo each hour. I found myself scrambling at the end of the day to ensure that I made it to 12!
I've had a number of emails asking me to explain how I put together my 12 on the 12th insert each month. The answer (which may sound like greek to some of you): I created a layered template in PSE that I can drop photos into. I've added text boxes to the bottom of the document for date & details. Realizing as I type this that I neglected to add the numbers to each square (it's not a part of the template).
For anyone interested, I'm offering the template for less than the cost of a latte in my newly opened Etsy shop - Figuring Out 40. I honestly have no idea what I'll do with this shop. Digi stuff. Maybe some paper stuff. Who knows! Anyway - template is here. (note: if you're unsure of how to use layered templates, there are some excellent video tutorials out there - just google "using layered templates" and you'll find people much smarter than me explaining the ins & outs)
So, I'll be honest - this was HARD. I went to work. I went to the gym (I was NOT taking a camera into the locker room. For the reasons that Cathy talks about here.) I came home. I made dinner. Oh, and I went to the bookstore. Normal, mundane stuff. My first Take Twelve attempt is rather, uhm, pedestrian.That being said - it's done, and it's going in my Project Life album as an insert (haven't decided what size).
