Revisiting the Recap

I just finished my 2009 Summary/2010 Plans page.  I've scrapbooked my summary and objectives for the last three years.  I'll post this latest page on Tuesday because I have a tip to share that goes with doing pockets.

When you see it, you'll notice that it is a bit busy. I seem to put a lot on these year-end summary pages.  For some reason I usually do Our scrapbook pages as 2 page spreads and the ones for My album as singles. 

Here is my page from 2007/2008.  I said "good riddance" to 2007 for my own personal reasons.  Little did I know then what would be happening with the economy and that I should have been more grateful for the full employment I, my friends and family enjoyed.  Nevertheless, there were challenges I was glad to overcome.

Each section is under a "tab" made from a scalloped circle.  Lots of Creative Memories photo tape keeps the pages bound on the right.

The thing I enjoy most about this process is writing the "In Addition To" section where I list all kinds of things that weren't really planned but were accomplished anyway.  It makes me feel good to see that I really did get a lot of valuable things done.  If you ever feel low, pull out a sheet of paper or start a new document in your word processor and start brainstorming all the things you've done outside of your everyday work responsibilities in the last month or year.  You'll be amazed.

I put a lot of time and resources into these pages.  I imagine these to be ones I'll spend a lot of time looking at someday wondering why I obsessed about certain things and what I really did that was important to me and to others.

Ingredients:  I don't remember where all these supplies came from but I do know that:
the stamps are Big Flowers from Stampin' Up!  The ink is SU! also.
Background paper is DCWV.
