Lots of Project Life to share. And as the year is getting closer to an end, I'm excited to start Project Life again. This was my first and it was a learning experience for me. One thing I kept wanting out of this was simplicity or not the attention to detail that I would put into a layout, card, or other project.
Here's a snapshot of our week 39. Lots of everyday things, but all captured and documented. There's a huge event in the middle on the right. Emma wanted to stay for a long day at school. She was so excited. We packed her sleeping bag, her stuffed friends, and she was set. I picked her up, she came over to me, and whispered in my ear "I liked it." I didn't know what to do with myself ;)
My friend, Deb, told me about Becky Higgins having a call for a new design team. Deb is part of the 2012 team. I told her my spreads are anything but simple. Well, I did put in, but as I looked around Becky Higgins' site, I realized just how simple this project is supposed to be.
The one thing I have done right with the simplicity of Project Life, I think, is I kept moving. I didn't give it the time I would any other project, even though it may not look like it. I grab what is near or already cut and can get a spread done in an hour.
Here's week 40. Dennis and I celebrated 22 years. Lots of little things, Emma and I getting packages from Cassie at Paper Issues.
I think that photo of the three of us is my favorite. Don't know why I put October 22, should be the 6th!
Week 41, play date with Merrin, getting ready for Halloween, and a trip to the zoo.
So tonight, I pulled out just the Project Life kit (Clementine), a few stamps, a little washi, nothing else, but the photos and a pen. I think I love Project Life even more.
I have lots of stamping in these Project Life spreads. Paper Issues is having a theme up right now called Stamp on It! And Hero Arts is our sponsor! Head over to Paper Issues for the theme, and a chance to win. Do a little shopping and save 20% with code:
