Project 365 Challenge

I was reading the Creating Keepsakes Magazine January 2009 and came across a challenge. It was to take a photo every day of the year and once a week do a simple 2 page layout featuring the 7 photos and 7 journal highlights and a couple of spaces for titling or bling. Or you could have have 7 small photos and 7 big journaling boxes or any combination. Check out the issue for lots of examples and more details. There is even a list of 365 ordinary ideas to help get you started on what you can take a shot of. In the magazine they are showing it done in paper and have a great kit you can purchase for the project. Click Project 365 Kit for more information.

I've decided I wanted to participate in this neat project but I wanted to do it digitally so I created a little template to help out with that. It is a 12x12 PSD template. I am sharing in case you would like to partipate too.

This is a great idea. Will you be sharing another template to go with this so there willbe spaces for 7 photos?

It will be fun to do a double page layout each week.

Jody asked was there a 2nd page because of 7 photos. The sample in the magazine that I used as my model uses the exact same page for both pages. They just fill in the extra space with titling or other embellishments. So to do the 2 pages just duplicate your template. I'll have a sample up after January 8th.

This template will be a great go-to template for the project with others in between (there are tons coming out at IkeaGoddess.blogspot.com)

Thank you for creating and sharing it.

I love this idea to take a picture a day. I haven't decided if I'll do paper or digital layouts, but I can start taking pictures now. Maybe it'd be a good beginner challenge for digital scrapping. :)
