I celebrated my birthday this week…and I had lots of photos to choose from, but decided in the end, to focus on who I am right now…little bits about how I spend me time and who I spend it with. I also incorporated the card Mike and Emily made me! Love it!
I used papers from Close to My Heart as well as their stamps and inks. I also used my cameo and cut out tags with all my little headings – wife, mother, baker, designer, listening, reading…etc.
Here are a few close-ups of the cards. I absolutely love how it came together. I usually don’t scrapbook me – but the fact the Project Life is more about documenting the week – I feel like there’s a freedom to do whatever fits the moment.
I’m still (ha! I’ve been at this for about three weeks, right :)) enjoying the process. Being able to select/edit my photos a little bit over a few nights after I put Emily to bed and wind down a bit allows me to start visualizing my layout. I get a few days to think about the colors and what papers/embellishments I might like to use before my I run to Costco and pick up my photos. I only print the photos I plan to use. Then, I get to do what I love the most: cut and paste and create.
Thanks so much for stopping by. See ya next week!
