Five Favourites

I've been seeing a lot of posts on Facebook recently where people are sharing their 5 favourite photos and then nominating friends to do the same.  I haven't been nominated....yet, but it has got me thinking.

I've spent most of my time working on my Project Life albums and I'm really missing 12 x 12 scrapping.  I have this weekend free so I thought I'd have a look through my phone (how lucky are we that we can carry around thousands of photos all the time?!) and pick 5 of my favourite photos.
I'm going to print these photos off (how unlucky are we that we can carry around thousands of photos that never see the light of day?!) and I'm going to scrap them.
This is a bit of a "soft opening" for a challenge I'm going to set myself for next year.  I thought I'd see how I get on now and then do something monthly next year.
Something like printing my 5 favourite photos from the previous month on the first of the month.
And then sharing the layouts I've made from the photos at the end of the month.
If I keep it up then by the end of the year I'll have 60 layouts of all of my favourite photos from the year, photos that, at the moment, remain locked in my phone.  I might however end up with a load of my favourite photos printed and trapped in a box, we'll see how I go :)

Maybe you'll be inspired to join in and get motivated to print those photos and get them scrapped!

Time is tight but I'm hoping to share 5 layouts of these 5 favourite photos of mine before my Christmas tree goes up on the 1st of December :)

Thanks for stopping by

Fabulous idea Jo ... yes, I'll join in with you (I'll try and get started on it this year... but not promising lol) xx

Very cute pictures. Yes, I've been taking my Monday pictures with my phone and it's definitely yielding more fun pictures I want to scrapbook. I'm looking forward to seeing your pages. Should be good!

What a great idea Jo. The photos are gorgeous and you're right, it is a waste to keep them on the phone and not scrap them. Can't wait to see your new layouts.

It's a great idea but I'll have to wait until after Christmas before I can even think about it!
