So, I was thinking I would do a December Daily type of project using divided page protectors. That idea went well until December 2, then after watching WAY too many of Shimelle's (Glitter Girl) videos I now have three 12x12 layouts in queue on my desk and one finished. (Lovingly placing blame on Shimelle! It's the season of giving!) Only 25 more days, right? lol!

Anyone else ever get themselves into well-intended project only to see it ballooning before their eyes?

I haven't finished decorating my binder and glueing paper over my chipboard pages yet, and it's fine. I am just taking pics and jotting down notes, and I will take a few days after Christmas or New Year's and adhere everything. Heck, my Christmas cards never went out, and you know what? I don't care. I have the supplies all together in a basket. I will finish them in January and send them next year. I had a really big, really busy year. I am just done stressing. There is too much to be enjoyed.

Happiness looks good on everyone!

I guess what I am saying that I had a very clear plan in my mind and it is turning out to be a bit more time consuming than I had planned. Just imagining the 3-4 LO on the desk turning into 10! lol!

I'm a couple days behind but will catch up this weekend. My problem with using a Sn@p album and protectors is that sometimes the photo I take can't be croppped to fit in the smaller protectors. Driving me crazy!!! Guess I need to plan my pics better.

Well, I am also using divided page protectors for my JYC album, but I have already decided that they will be perfect for combining with full-size layouts if I feel so inspired. I say go for it!!

I'm using the 4*6 album that came with the Studio Calico DD kit. I don't know that I'd use this size again--it is super small--but the advantage is that it makes the project really, really manageable.

I was wondering how using a 4x6 format photo with the sn@p stuff would work. I need to get into different photo sizes.

I'm using the Sn@p protectors that have 2 2x3's on top and a 4x6 on the bottom. Utilizing different photo sizes and still using the kit I bought for DD.

Haven't gotten around to printing photos yet... that's the project for this weekend, but I have post-it notes to remind me what I'd like to document.

I'm also trying to work on last years's 8.5x11 in size. Wish there were a bigger variety in page protectors for it, aside from baseball card protectors.
