Saturday Stuff…

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!  It’s that day when everyone has a little Irish blood running through their veins (or at least wish that they did).  A is gone off to the Ice Caps game in full Irish attire…

Go, Ice Caps, Go!

It was a beautiful spring day here today!  Spent some time out and about running errands.  Hoping that the weather will stay nice for a while.

I went to the Paperie for a crop last night.  It was a fun night with friends followed by a few treats at the end of the night.  It was a great night to get caught up on my pages for Sara’s Year Long Album Class.  I also spent some time working on Project Life weekly title inserts.  Really want to finish Week 10 and 11 this weekend.  Then I will finally be caught up.  I am really enjoying the whole Project Life concept.  It has been forcing me to use my camera everyday – I now carry a pocket size camera in my purse most of the time.  And, of course, my iphone is always with me in a pinch.  The other thing that I have found with Project Life is that it is forcing me write things down every day and there really is a significant focus on the journaling within my pages, so much so that I sometimes have trouble keeping within the confines of a 4X6 space. This is really out of my element.  Journaling is the thing that I have the most trouble adding to my layouts…so this has been a big plus for Project Life.

Here are a few photos of the cover pages of my Project Life Album…

I downloaded this printable from Cathy Zielske’s blog.  I stamped the DAVIS and the “D” is grungeboard from a Tim Holtz alphabet package, inked and then covered with Pumpkin smooch for a touch of shimmer.  I cut it down a little and adhered it to cardstock, added a little patterned paper and this is the result.

Here’s the 12 X 12 cover page…

I used the same cardstock and patterned paper from the title page, added some washi tape at the top, and adhered some appropriate sticker.  I love the large photo which has been cut to fit into the dividers.

I used stickers to adhere the title directly to the photo.  Project Life is coming along and I will share some more in a few days.  Are you playing along with Project Life?  How are you keeping up?  What is your process?

In honour of Dr. Seuss’ Birthday, Studio Calico had a challenge this week to use a quote from Dr. Seuss on a card or layout.  Here’s a quick run at that challenge….

Happy 50th Birthday Jim!  A Party on St. Patrick’s Day!  So much fun!

The Luck of the Irish to ya’
