My take on "project life"

This is my take on "project life" by Becky Higgins.

So I was snooping around some blogs a few days ago and came across Becky higgins blog. She came out with 2 new "project life" kits. Its such a great idea! you have the album feel but you still get to do the scrapbooking part, of journaling and documenting life. So I thought, how can I do the same thing, but more scrapbooking and a bit different layou
Example from Becky Higgins and Ali Edwords:

We'll I did my research and did some shopping and found something I liked and would work for me!
I got this Photo album at Michaels, by Recollections for $25 but if you find coupons its gonna be less (just a tip).

In side it has 3 6x4 and 2 4x6 photo pockets. As you can see I didnt fill in all the pockets, in there I will do some Journaling and/or do "page fillers" or i call them mini scrap pages.

Of course I'm just starting and only have my photos in place.

The reason I wanted something different was because I have some vertical photos, and not always horizontal ones. And this album has just that, both! And when I don’t have vertical photos I can put journaling and my mini layouts. Good thinking right?

Cold day off

So glad and Blessed to be home today. Its my day off but its COLD out side! like 25F , sunny, cold. So I'm taking the day to work on the Xmas cards! I've got lots to do but need a break. dare I go out side? yikes. anyways Enjoy and leave some Love!

Secret Santa

Every year my side of the family does a secret santa drawing on Thanksgiving! that way it will give us enough time till Xmas! This is my second year making the name drawing cards. This year I used my cricut to cut out the "present" envelopes and the tages from the "Sweethearts" cartridge. Who would have thought! Then useing "wild card" cartridge; font, I cut out the names for each person. Then after we do the drawing you can use the tag on the Gift you are giving. smart, or what? I'm so excited for my family to see them! yay for the holidays!

I've also managed to make a few cards last night during our snowy night. Yes thats right snow in WA in November! Oh did I tell you how cold it is. today highs are 25F and lows 11F!!! 11?! I dont think i've ever seen 11F. I think i may just wear a hat to bed tonight.
