New Layout - Tough

With my new found obsession of Project Life app scrapping last year, I was very on top of weekly Project Life scrapping, but I realized I think I only made a total of 3 traditional layouts last year. And those were all about my childhood and had nothing to do with current life. So I realized with putting this story/how much I miss it. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the app and love that I have a weekly snapshot of life, but there is definitely a part of me that wants to hold all the pretty paper and decorative stuff and create with it. So I am hoping for a better balance this year. Even if it is just one layout a month, I think I can manage that!

This one couldn't wait, though. It was a story I wrote down several months ago that really needed it;s own page. And the Tough Story kit by Ali Edwards was the perfect title to start with. From there, it all just came together!

I have also been totally in love with the Felicity Jane subscriptions and this was my first ever layout using their paper. I love this paper so much, I am totally guilty of hoarding it! But another realization I came to recently is that the whole point of spending all this money on supplies is to actually have a finished product to show for it. More on that in a later post....

But of now, here is my recent layout. Super simple, using Felicity Jane Papers and some of their word elements from their October kit. The acrylic title is from Ali's Tough Kit and the little "the story" tab is from an Ali Edwards kit as well, though I am not exactly sure which one it came from.

I did blur a bit of the journaling because it is just too personal but it doesn't seem necessary to at least get the gist of the story itself (hopefully).

Exciting News (a bit late!)

I was SO excited to learn in November that I made the Project Life Creative Team, I could hardly contain myself! But I had to keep it a secret until the end of December, when it was officially announced. And then fail of all fails, like most people, life got away with me. I started a new job, started the last of three classes until I receive my Bachelor’s degree, and tried to get through the holidays with houseguests and a five year-old. Blah, blah, blah...

So now that life is finally settling into somewhat of a routine, I am officially announcing that I am on the 2017 Project Life Creative Team. Woot Woot!  If you would like to check out the official announcement on Becky's Blog, you can go here. That's me, just to the left if the word Scrapbooking in the title.

I will be exclusively designing from the Project Life App, which I used for my 2016 album. I am elated that 2016 is scrapped and in the books with a two-page spread for each week of the year. The app makes it so easy to do this that I plan to keep this up for 2017. Maybe even start on some of my childhood years that I have wanted to scrap for many, many moons!

Stay tuned for lots of creative goodies this year!
