Five LO that Finished Off 2010!

My intention when I went into my scrappy space yesterday was not to finish off my 2010....but I am sure glad I did! I actually wanted to play with the new Valentine's Day line from CTMH that I had bought. However, once I started putting a few completed LOs I had lying around in the album I realized how close 2010 was to being done. So I created these five LOs to finish it off.

For the last two years I have been scrapping chronologically and putting my album together month by month. Though I like the organization of the albums that way, it really is starting to affect my creative mojo. So, for 2011 I am going to just scrap what I feel like and focus more on the stories behind the photos. I am also going to walk away from my beloved D Ring Binder type albums and go back to the poster bound. The test of time has held up with the poster bound album (especially my CTMH ones) better than the D Ring. I love the connivance of the D Ring, but I have always been less impressed with what it looks like. I want to get back to the story telling of scrapbooking. Maybe scrap less pages, but with more depth. KWIM?

Betsie, great pages, love how you decorated your title in Big Ten. I too love the post bound albums, just like the total finished effect when they are all put together and I take out the posts and replace with "snap loads" from Pioneer, makes them much easier to use and expand.
