Year In Review Album

2010 was a big year for me and I wanted a quick and easy way to remember all the great moments.

I put together this little mini album to showcase some of my favorite photos of the year. Since I knew there'd be twelve months worth of pictures, I wanted to keep it really simple to put together. By using my Fiskars tools and repeating the same design on each month, I was able to whip it up in no time. Hope it inspires you to create a year in review album of your favorite times in 2010 or 2011!
