* warning, photo heavy post!
This was the year that I was going to play along each day. I had a cunning plan to keep my album SUPER SIMPLE (which I did) and I downloaded Ali's templates and printed away.
I loved the idea of 6" x 8" photos on each layout and had planned to print at home. Then I started thinking about the fact that I would need to get another job to pay for all the ink I churn through!!
Then I saw that Big W had their 6" x 8" enlargements for 68c. Woo hoo. Score. Hi five. So I saved up those photos because it is an hour round trip, and I was busy at work. I headed to Big W after work about day 20.
My thumb drive would not read in their machines, and trust me, I tried every single one. OK, I was bitter and disappointed but thought I would try again. December 23 down I go again with a CD of the photos as I was told that was more reliable. Yes, you guessed it...would not work. Not happy at this point, not happy at all.
And that's when I threw in the towel and accepted the fact that that I would not get those suckers printed before Christmas and I go to my happy place.
I make my final trip on the 28th, thinking I will just print the last few days at home. And guess what...it would not work. Arrrrrrrggggghhhhhhhhh. A young guy took pity on me and checked behind the counter on their computer and told me that "oh, these have been photoshopped (Ali's overlays) and we can't process them. Sorry.
So I went home and I printed out all 31 days of 6 x 8's and the price of ink be damned LOL
So here it is...
