Have you ever made an ALPHABET album? It is a fun way to showcase photos or stories, but with an added twist.
I have created an alphabet album in the past, where each page had a title (and a topic) starting with one letter of the alphabet. Then, the pages were placed in alphabetical order, even if not in chronological order. So, for 2022, I am suggesting this long-term challenge for you. With one page every 2 weeks, we will be able to finish the year with a complete album. It is up to you to decide if you want to print it or share it otherwise.
I will share my own pages, just for ideas, but I will also give you some more words that will start with the letter of the week. Try to think of one overarching theme to use. It could be about your last vacation, a family gathering, a hobby of yours, a location, etc. Think of something that you have lots of photos of or many words you can associate with.
If you have not started yet and want to jump in, no problem. You know the alphabet so you know what letters you will have to do and you still have many months to catch up on those few pages, so don’t hesitate. There is also no deadline, so if this week’s page is done only next month, it is totally fine too.
So here is my D layout.
Of course, you can use words in your own language too. As you can see, this album was done in French.
Here are some other words that could be used as title/theme:
Dainty, Darling, Dream, Date, Double, Dazzle, Debut, Dear, Decorate, Delicious, Deluxe, Desire, Dessert, Diamond, Discover, Dynamic, Dark, Deep, Difficult, Digital, Dry, Dripping, Down, Dress, Different, Dirty, Dad, Daughter, Danger, Dinner, Dog, Duck, Dare, Delete, Dig, Drag, Daisies, Diapers, and many more.
What will your D layout be?February 11, 2022 at 4:22 pm #71123Rene MarkerParticipant
D is for Downtown. Photos from the main street where all the old buildings that housed the businesses that were the backbone of the town in the 1800/1900’s. Many of these buildings were built in the 1800’s although some have had changes made to them over the years. The Downtown district has one long row of buildings on the north side of the street with the river behind it. The south side of the street has 4 sections because of the side streets that intersect the main street. The east end is defined by the railroad track and the west end has a major north/south street.
Today these buildings house local small businesses and restaurants. There have been many changes over my lifetime but it is still the backbone of the town.

D is for DEVON a county in England
A County to England is the same as a State to America, even if the whole of England would fit into California 3 times.February 12, 2022 at 5:39 pm #71181Corrie KinkelParticipant
D is for the printing museum “Drukkerij Museum”, that was established in1976 and is all about the art of bookprinting. The old printing-office looks as it would have been in the fifities of the 20th century. All the different aspects of bookprinting are showcased. Since a couple of years the museum exhibites an unique wooden printing-press from 1760. There are often temporary exhibitions, all in connection with printing.
For this page I made a print overlay, I hope it is visable in this resized version. The rest is in the same style as the other letters.February 13, 2022 at 1:12 pm #71198March 2, 2022 at 1:24 pm #73063Ann SeeberParticipant
Catching up on my Alphabet Album – D is for Dragonfly. The dragonfly art is by Stephanie Law.March 2, 2022 at 5:38 pm #73075Mary SolaasParticipant
Dragons are on more than my brain! Susan has one in the Mask Challange. Ann Seeber – your dragon is a dragonfly – really great.
My D is for dragons. The elements are mine and so are the backgrounds for Puff and How To Train Your Dragon – they are pictures I took at various times. The clip art and the background for Smaug are from NicePng.March 13, 2022 at 3:21 pm #73546Marie-ClaireParticipant
D is for ‘De Dijle’ : The Dyle in Leuven, due to its link with the River Scheldt/Schelde, the Dyle has brought trade, industry and prosperity to Leuven for hundreds of years. However, the river burst its banks at the most unexpected times.
After being compressed and hidden, the River Dyle can breathe once again. The water is part of the city and water-related constructions are saved.
I used one of the alphabet templates we got from Carole
