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 friend Kim and I, my decorated family room, my dd's class delivering Christmas stockings to an organization that aids homeless women & children, the Christmas cards I made, my Yorkie napping, and my girls on Christmas Eve on the left...Cassie and I and our tree on the right. I wrote our schedule/calendar info from the month around the outside edge of the right page. I stuck some movie tickets behind the photo block on the right and used it as a pocket for some other memorabilia from the month. I added a couple brads and did some doodled stitching on the circles and around the block on the right.
