I had the chance to play with the newest mini collection from Simple Stories, Sweater Weather. I couldn't resist making a page of the one tree that lost its leaves here in FL this fall (January), pitiful, I know!
Did you catch the play on words? The arrow says, count your blessings, ... and then I have even when they don't ... fall! Couldn't resist. I added in a few falling leaves to celebrate the season that I love.
Ever wonder how to get the sprinkled look with the enamel dots that are so popular? Well, you will have to jump over to the Simple Stories blog to find out a neat trick I found for the perfect placement! :)
I love to fussy cut so when I saw these words "Live Your" I knew instantly it needed to say dreams. My layout was based on my title first and then I added a few pieces from my stash of Market Street to finish up the layout. I wanted some splatters, but I splattered a little too much in my effort to keep my pictures covered. When will I finally learn to splatter before gluing things down???
I completed a whole year of Project Life and it is all documented only 2 weeks after the actual date.
You can see detail shots and my steps for assembling a Project Life spread on the Bella Blvd blog.
Rocky's dedication, computer death, and trouble at the beach...
Our favorite eats and a little boy celebrates 1!
1. I will continue to do PL - I like having our album starting in August it marks the progress of our last little boy, so it makes it special and it keeps me from having another big project around Christmas.
2. I am considering sticking with the same page protectors next year instead of using multiple, I think it would be easier.
3. I will continue to make single pages that coordinate with the second page for flow. I will use double page spreads only for special events.
4. Try it, it really is a lot of fun and it doesn't have to be fancy. It is amazing to look at your year minus the fluff and see that even there were moments you might rather forget, life has been good.
Another week of everyday, both big and small things. I had a lot of blurry pictures for week 50, but they were events I didn't want to forget. The beauty of Project Life is your pictures don't have to be stunning, they just need to be included.
Rocky pulled up and Gino started using the potty, huge milestones!
