As you'll read on our Take Twelve page, this photography challenge (and well, it's a scrapbooking challenge, too) encourages scrapbookers worldwide to take 12 photos featuring their everyday life on the 12th of every month, for 12 months, during the year 2012.
But what if you didn't even find out about this challenge until January 13th? (Or March 22nd for that matter.) Does that mean you can't join in the challenge? NO.
There are LOTS of ways to participate, even after January 12th has come and gone! Here are a few.
1. Fake it for January
For the month of January, take your first 12 photos on the 13th or 15th or even 27th of the month. You don't have to tell anyone! (And we won't tell either...) Then make sure you join our email list, so you'll get a reminder to take your photos on the 12th of the month every other month this year.
2. Start Any Month You'd Like
You don't HAVE to start the Take Twelve photography challenge in January. You can go from February to February, or June to June. It would be extra fun to start on your birthday month or your anniversary month, and do the Take Twelve challenge for one year from that date.
3. Focus on 12 Photos From Your Whole Month
You can also do the Take Twelve challenge in hindsight and focus on highlights from the whole month. In other words, at the end of each month, look back through your photos, choose your 12 favorites, and make a page. The Take Twelve Guided Inspiration Kit and Take Twelve Templates will still help you scrapbook your 12 photos in style, no matter what day you took them.
See, it's flexible! You can make this project your own. We even heard from one Take Twelver who is asking her family members from across the country to each email her a few photos taken on the twelfth, and then she's turning all the photos into a collective family scrapbook page. FABULOUS idea!
And remember that every month on the 12th, you can save 12 percent off of any two items on our site, including the Take 12 Kit and Templates shown below! Your coupon code will come via email, so be sure you're signed up.
Peek inside before you buy!
Here's a little peek at the 12 photos I took on January 12th, just waiting to be added to a scrapbook page. Seeing them all together makes me SO happy! (Especially that crazy photo of my dog, mid-jump.)
So, won't you join 700 other scrapbookers worldwide (and counting) and start your own Take Twelve project?
