2010 Calendar Sneak Peek

I've designed my own calendar for 2010! I wanted to capture some of the most special moments from our trip to France and London in 2008 and give my Mum a calendar of special pictures to enjoy throughout the year. This collection of pages has been my first attempt at digital scrapbooking.

I first heard about digital scrapbooking from the Two Peas in a Bucket website back in 2007, but I found it a bit of a funny concept. The products available didn't seem very inspiring, and I wasn't into scrapbooking anyway, so I didn't look any further. Through my interest in pattern design, though, I have come to love scrapbook paper and particularly the Basic Grey designs. I found myself looking at digital scrapbooking products as well as paper products, and I must say, over the last two years the quality seems to have improved dramatically! So what better way to document our trip than with some of these lovely products. I also had a go at designing some of my own, which feature in my calendar too.

Here's the cover of my calendar, called "Belles Memoires" - that's French for "Beautiful Memories".
