My month in numbers - January 2012

I have made a start on my Document 2012 today.  I wanted to do two 12x12 layouts plus a page of with the divided page protectors.  For one of my pages I thought I would use "my month in numbers" to capture some of the things we had done that month.  I love this idea and came across it while blog hopping when I came across it on Julie's blog.

So without further ado here are my numbers for January...

7 pairs of shoes bought for Alex and Josh in one month! Both had new school shoes and then, because Alex is now a whopping size 6, she got new trainers for PE, new boots, some wellies, a pair of walking boots and a pair of shoes for going out.  That was one expensive month!

3 new recipes tried during the month - the lemon loaf was the best :)

Josh was invested into the 19th Warrington Scout Troop

We took 7 Brownies away to Waddow Hall, Clitheroe on my first Brownie Pack Holiday as a leader

Tony turned 47

Alex turned 13

Alex now has all her adult teeth - 28 in total.

So this is the page I made with an old Sarah's Cards Kit featuring Fancy Pants Happy Together papers.

Apologies the photos and great - a combination of bad winter light and taking them on my iphone for speed!

This page also qualifies for the weekly challenge over on UKS in which we had to use the sketch, use some new stash (I used a new Prima Mistables Mask for my background) and journal (yep, I think I covered that one!)

Why don't you go and take a look at Julie's blog and document your Month in Numbers?

Welcome aboard Julia.

Birthdays and cake recipes definitely seem to be a recurring theme for most people last month ... I wonder what February will bring?

It's great to hear you've found a way to combine Month in Numbers into your scrapping plans!

I love those corner clusters on your page and I've pinned it to the Pinterest board now:

Here's to a less expensive February. One day I am going to manage to get my numbers into a page. Maybe at half term. Lovely page.
