I finally got to play with the Studio J online scrapbooking program that CTMH came out with!! I decided to do the Christmas 2009 pictures. I just submitted my order but I couldn't go to bed until I had a chance to share my new COMPLETED layouts!! Here are some of my layouts that I completed the last couple days! I got more complete layouts with embellishments added and journaling done this past weekend then I did over the weekend of my retreat!!
Here is my first and last page...
Christmas Memories...I still had quite a few pictures left so I decided to just make a page with random pictures!
With each family member I dedicated a page for them and them opening their parents. I put my mom and dad together since I didn't have enough to make a complete layout of their own!
My mom's own page with the focus on the new camera! BTW I was taking the pictures with her new camera and we wrapped the old camera in the box! lol
The next two pages focuses on my brother and sister in law. I at first did the two of them on the same layout but then I found some more pictures so I decided to make them their own pages...so Amy's is the right page on the first picture and the left page on the second picture and Travis' is the left page on the first pic and the right page on the second pic. Hope that makes sense!! It will be right in my album!!!
All together I got 10 pages done over the weekend!! Wahoo!! Have you checked out Studio J yet??

You bet! You can create a customer account that allows you to save and return to a project in progress at a later time.

You extend that timeline for your active projects by 90 days each time you make a purchase, and your purchased projects will remain archived for one full year after purchase. We’ll email you when your active projects are set to expire so you can be sure to purchase them before they are deleted.
