Loose Ends

With December on the horizon, I've made a concerted effort to tidy up loose ends and finish off Design Your Life, complete missing album pages and catch up with One Little Word.
Week 12  of Design Your Life was disappointing, as I do so hate it when a class ends with a final week of choose your favourite from earlier weeks and re-do.  Why not just make the class a week shorter and end with a short recap?
As it happened, my favourite layout was from week 1: use a large photo and minimal design.
The lovely Aussie girls over at SAG are still regularly posting and sharing pages of beautiful simplicity.  Amy's latest offering caught my eye and I used it as the basis for a partial scraplift.
One Little Word in October was capturing my word through the camera lens.  Under this category of making October better, I have little people in the paddling pool on the 1st, Harvest Festival on the 7th, weekend crop with my BF over 7th-9th, the visit to the V&A on the 13th and much, much more.  I added journaling strips to each pocket after the photo was taken. 
During November, One Little Word was about indulging in a spot of self-reflection through a number of "I" statements about where I am in my life right now.  Most of it is too personal for blogging. 
That pretty much brings me up to date, (apart from the journaling in this mini book) and ready for December Daily.  My new American friend introduced me to the idea of a pre-Christmas house guest, so do look out for when he/she makes an appearance.

Don't forget to leave a comment here, if you'd like to enter my Christmas GiveAway.  It closes at Midnight (GMT) tonight and will be drawn tomorrow.

Well done on the catch up. You know me!! It's the first tomorrow and the December Daily might have to start next year as I have no idea what to do or how to do it. Is it a daily prompt or am I winging it?

Gosh, you have been so busy and I am impressed with how you have managed to tie up all your projects for the year ... I think I need you as a cheerleader!
I love all your layouts Ruth, I'm glad you found mine useful as a design basis for one of yours!
