I always do monthly summary pages in my albums as an overview and to include random odds and ends, if I have any, that won't fit on other LO's. For 2010, I settled on a much, much simpler concept than the themes I used for '08, '09, and '13 because I find I get burned out doing 12 similar elaborate LO's. (You can see the themes I used for 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2013, as well as the others for 2010 in my gallery in the Month LO's album.) I am adapting an idea from an old Creating Keepsakes Magazine article for these 2010 monthly LOs.
I've included a selection of photos from the month: ducks on our pier, flowers from my backyard, Cassie on July 4th, my outdoor fireplace, my dad's wind sock at the lake, and my back porch on the left...my yellow petunias and some jet skiers on the right. I wrote our schedule/calendar info from the month around the outside edge of the right page. The block on the right page serves as a pocket for some 'extras' from the month, eg ticket stubs, etc. I added a couple brads and did some doodled stitching on the circles and around the block on the right.
