I know I've proclaimed my love before for Project Life but I have to do it again. With 3 kiddos, a busy life and everything else, scrapbooking time is not as ample as it used to be. I still love love love creating layouts, which satisfies my need to do something creative but I equally love working on my PL. Sometimes it might take me a week to complete a spread but I try to touch it everyday. It satisfies my need to do something crafty on a daily basis, even if it's only for 15 minutes. I get to play with paper and document our daily life. I can't wait for the day the girls look back at our PL and laugh or cry at the moments captured and documented.
Week 18 was a pretty typical week. The usual home stuff, plus a garage sale that's been in the making for the past 2 years. So happy that we have finally tackled this daunting task. It feels great to let go of stuff that was accumulating dust, even if it's the baby change table. Sniff sniff. Like Danika says, "they grow so fast". Yes my 8 year old says that, but I think it's to make fun of me.
For this week I get a pretty simple color palette, greens, white and greys. The pictures were colourful so I didn't want anything too contrasting. Most of the products used are from Studio Calico. I also love using the Freckled Fawn wood embellishments on my PL, a perfect accent for my card and the thickness is just right. I do not like thick embellishments in my PL.
I very much look forward to get my first PL core kit from Becky Higgins, I think I will tackle our 2012 album. I can't wait to get started!
