I sat down to do my final Yearlong Album post and realized that I hadn’t done several months – my mind is leaving me, obviously! So, rather than post the last one, I’ll catch up here this week and have them all in order for you. If you want to see what we’ve done this year just type YLA in the search bar and/or check out the Flickr album.

Here’s October:

We’re starting this month and it’s going to be all my favourite techniques and products, plus some of my tried and true journalling tips. Trust me, some of the new product ordered in for this class is amazing! I can’t wait to get started!
