    Day 28: Year In Review

    Hello MOC'ers! We're at Day 28! I've been keeping an eye on the challenges this month and everyone is doing great! We're in the home stretch now. You can do this!

    Today's challenge is the Year in Review challenge. Now that we're a few weeks into 2015, I want you to take a look back at the past year and make a page about 2014. How you choose to do so is up to you! You can choose to make a summary page about your year with lots of photos, or maybe you want to scrap about one defining moment or theme of your year. So do some reflection, and then share your 2014 memories with us! I can't wait to see your pages!

    Here are the specific requirements for this challenge:

    1. Your page must be about 2014, either a summary of the year or one defining moment or theme of the year.
    2. The word/s '2014' or 'Two Thousand Fourteen' must appear on your page. I need to be able to see it! ;)
    3. You need to have at least one sentence of journaling on your page.

    That is all you have to do! Easy, right?

    Here is some inspiration to help you along:

    I chose to do a summary page about my husband's running races in 2014. I did one of these in 2012 and he loved it. This time I used a timeline format template that saved me a lot of time and allowed me to add so many more photos and details. Since I had so many photos and text, I kept this layout very simple. I think it works for a masculine page. It was fun to go back and revisit these moments!


    One of my favorite TLPers, Karen, does a Year In Review page every year. Here are some of her examples in the gallery:

    2013 Year in Review
    2012 Year In Review
    2011 Year in Review

    Other amazing examples I found in our wonderful gallery:

    2013 Year in Review by Chey

    General MOC rules: Your page must be a new page in order to count for the Month of Challenges. Please post your page in your page thread you created in this folder. You should have one post per completed challenge page. If you complete all 31 challenges, your thread should contain 31 posts. Please do not comment in the participants’ page threads so we can keep them clean. You should also post your page here in this thread, and people can comment here if they wish. Pages should contain at least 75% current Lilypad product (currently for sale in the store from either permanent designers or guest designers).

    I hope you enjoy this challenge and I can't wait to see what you come up with!

    This was easy and yet hard. It was hard to pick out just a few photos. This page only goes through February. Now I'll have to carry on and do at least six pages to try for 2 months on a page. Here's mine:

    I don't normally do this kind of layout. I tried to get as many photos in as possible. Thanks for the challenge.

    Well mine's going to be fun since I don't have any photos form 2014 at all. Will have to be journaling only!

    This was so hard mostly because I didn't think it was fun. I started at least five different layouts and deleted them all. This is the best I could do today...

    I already had all my picture picked out from doing my 2014 calendar as Christmas presents. Still took awhile to go through and add all the extra journaling. :)
