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: my dd on Halloween and my friend Darla's Lab Gunner on the left...Cassie again, St. Mary of the Angels in Chicago, a couple shots of our pumpkins, and a couple shots of the lake my family cabin is on from my friend Scott on the right. I wrote our schedule/calendar info from the month around the outside edge of the left page. I stuck some movie tickets behind the photo block on the left. I added a couple brads and did some doodled stitching on the circles and around the block on the left.
