Take 12 in 2012: March edition

Hello March. Hello spring. Hello busy days. Hello Take 12, which is the monthly challenge to take twelve photos on the 12th of each month (or sometime around there) and turn it into a layout or something like that. Check out Ella Publishing for more information and to post your layout as well.

This month I decided to vary the page protectors. I had been going with Design F and Design E, which you can see in my January post here. These 4x4 sized pocket pages from We Are Memory Keepers were so much easier to use with Instagrams. I just used some patterned paper to help fill in the spots and of course that giant number 12 as a title (I am using a set from Ali Edwards).

I also used a journaling card from Cathy Zielske, just modified it to work with my 4x4 size.

Here I used the journaling card to share a story from the day.

And I am continuing to use the metal office tags and another digital file from Ali Edwards. This one says 12 good times. I love using paper from my stash along with the kit. To number the photos I used the white numbers from my Clementine Project Life kit from Becky Higgins.

So there it is! Pretty simple but fun. I used some Instagrams and a few from my regular camera after I got home at night. I also borrowed some pictures that my husband took of their adventures at the park. I processed those and my DSLR photos in a fun Polaroid iMac app called Instant. It's the most fun I've had processing photos ever. I just love it.

The bluebonnets were from my iPhone. Took a few minutes on my way home to capture a bit of the fields of blue I drive by all day. It's really gorgeous right now and it felt really good to take time and enjoy a few moments. And if you are wondering about my February Take 12? Well, it's in process. Like a lot of my projects! But it's fun. I love adding this to my Project Life. Really really. 


  1. Love how you used this page protector format for your take 12, and love the bluebonnets. We were in TX 2 years ago and I made my husband pull over so I could get a photo of them. Lovely along the highways.

  2. Thanks Lisa! They are gorgeous right now! I really want a picture of girlie in them, but we will see. Glad you got to see them!! And thank you! I really like this size. Easy is a good thing!
