Let’s get back to 2016, shall we? As I continue my page sharing this week, today I feature June 2016. I would be remiss not to remind you that as of June 1, I had nothing done on this album. Nothing. Nada. Zilch. True, I had the idea to teach Scrapbook Your Year and was working on the course outline, but I had no pages completed. I figure that if I put the system to the test and it worked, then I’d have a class worth of my students. If not, I’d still have the finished pages. But it was surprising how quickly I was able to catch up on six months of pages. I think it’s something that has even surprised me. But let’s take a peek at June, shall we?
Number of photos taken in June: 789 (Yes, there was another ultimate tournament which accounts for the high number.)
Number of photos used for these pages: 26
One of the things I try to do on the first page of each month is to feature all members of my family in one way or another. Of course, I only have four people, so it’s definitely do-able, but I don’t always have shots of the teen-aged boy handy. In June, I did.
Sports, hair bleaching and lunch with a dear friend. Yep. That works for me.
Speaking of hair, that before and after tho. Am I right? I kind of miss that long, swingy hair, but man is he handsome with the short cut.
Another month with a shorter wrap up page. I feel like as long as I hit the high points, I’m good. And look at that, more Cole photos than Aidan photos. That almost never happens.
If you missed the rest of 2016, here’s the catch up:
April + May 2016

Your pages are so inspiring! Thank you so much for sharing them.
And speaking of thanks, THANK YOU SO MUCH for developing this course. My January through April pages are now complete and I’m jumping up and down inside. I am so doing this, with your help!
You are adorable & I dig your spunky take on this thing we call life. I love your clean, crisp design…easy to view and read. I do wonder though why you don’t use more of the page so you can either have larger photod or include more shots…me being curious.
Have a happy day.

Hey Donna! You can totally do that with these templates. Part of the class is showing you how to take the base templates and create new designs!
And the wide margin is a design decision. I love the cushioning white space. It’s elegant and classic. Also, it allows for any type of book printing. Of course, I do lay flat books, but some people will choose to bind it differently and this allows for some error.
It’s really just a design preference that i love and wanted to share it with my blog readers and students!
Hi Cathy- if you print this as an 8×8 how wide would the borders be?
Yep, he can pull off the long AND the short hair. Not many people can do that. Nice pages for June.
