For those that have done the DD more than 1 or 2 years (and have done it differently each time) which has been your favorite and least favorite process and final product?

I've done them since 2009. That first year I really followed more of how Ali Edwards used to do it where the base was done, and you just kind of went with it. I loved that process. I made some parts more interactive, which was fun to do and to look at.

Then I had kids... and I tried to keep things as simple as possible. 2010 was definitely my least favorite where I decided not to use much patterned paper, not do much prep, and it seemed more complicated and hard to work with.

I can't even remember what I did for 2011. I think I tried to make it more of a December album.

Last year I did it completely different. I didn't do it daily, but made it a summary of Christmas-y things. I used the Studio Calico 6x8 album. I used different page protectors which meant variety. And, because of the album, I love the way it looks.

Now that I'm preparing for 2013 I'd love to see what worked and didn't for you.

I just looked at my 2011 album and it was really pre-done (I guess to compensate for the year before.) About half of the pages were based on favorite layouts I saw online, shrunk to fit my pages. Looking back, I loved those pages the most, but they were hard to work with. The other pages were more as you go, but I don't like them. I tried to spruce them up, but I think what I really didn't like were the colors. I prefer brighter colors and mixing in non-traditional papers.
