Here is my layout, which includes photos from a trip I take each year to Santa Barbara with my sister Ann. I used a scheme inspired by Stacy Julian, which is like a pocket page, but does not use a pocket page protector. I fussed with this page for hours, and I guess I'm happy with it. I actually had to make myself stop, or who knows how long I would have fiddled around with it before calling it quits!
Another tip for having a more successful NSD in the future is to have a bunch of new photos printed prior to the day. I had many photos at my disposal, but I think a fresh batch would have inspired me more. I'll try to remember these things for next year!
Luckily, one of my favorite blogs, the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog, has extended their challenges until May 16th! I think I'll take advantage of the coming Mother's Day weekend to eke out a few more hours to my favorite hobby! I hope to even get a few more challenges completed! One of the more exciting things about NSD is that there are many great prizes available to participants of some of the challenge sites. Nothing beats the thrill of winning a coveted NSD prize package! Wish me luck!!
