PROJECT LIFE - Weeks 1 thru 4

I didn't want to unload all of my pages on you at once, so I'm just posting 4 weeks at a time for now . . . until I've caught you up . . . and then I'll post week by week . . . assuming I stay caught up!

Here are weeks 1 and 2 . . . as I mentioned in an earlier post, the thing that ended up working best for me and that helps me to keep my PL doable every week, is to only do 1 page per week. If I happen to have more happenings (more photos, journaling, etc.) than I will go to 1 1/2 or 2 pages per week . . it just depends on the week. I like the flexibility that allows me . . . giving myself permission to slack now and then is a good thing!

Here is Week 1 only (sorry for the terrible photo - I'm working on this!):

Here is week 2:

Weeks 3 and 4:

I'm really working on more embellishments and fun stuff in my PL . . you'll see that in some of my more recent stuff. I'll post the next 4 weeks tomorrow with some close ups.

Thanks for stopping by. . . Enjoy your day!

A new look

I've been playing around with my blog layout this morning . . . looking for a fresh new look since Spring is in the air! Hope you like the changes . . . tried to incorporate some of my own photos in the blog title, but unsure how exactly to shrink my photos enough so that I can put a row of small photos in the title. If any of you know how to do that and can help me, I'd appreciate it.

Project Life photos will be posted after lunch!

Skateboard lessons and simple ribbon cards

I got my first Studio Calico kit in the mail yesterday (add on kit Montmarte) and had to play with it! I totally scraplifted this layout from the SC Blog (see Valerie Bishop's recent layout) and love it!

My 9 year old was giving my 6 year old skateboarding lessons in these photos . . . I just adore these pictures and love the way the layout turned out (although I need to practice my misting skills a bit more . . . maybe a bit heavy in this layout!?!?). After I uploaded this photo I added a line underneath the date that says "Skateboard lessons with Josh" since I want to remember exactly what these photos were capturing.
A close up of some of the fun embellishments:
And . . . since I was lifting ideas . . . I saw these simple cards on Lawn Fawn and I have so much ribbon (and so little time) . . . I had to try these quick little cuties . . .

Trying to get caught up with my Project Life (about 2 weeks behind), so I'll get those photos posted tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by.

Enjoy your day!
