Hi guys, I've got a layout in my 2016 Project Life album to show you, from Week 21, using my Gossamer Blue Main and Life Pages kits! These kits never disappoint, and this month I decided to use the journaling cards in the kit along with the fun embellishments. Have a look at my process:
This is the layout after I printed it out from the Project Life App, leaving only blank cards where the journaling cards will go:
For some reason that looks really greyed out - the border is a very light turquoise. Here is the completed layout:
I began the layout with the date card, and a brand new stamp set I got from Kerri Bradford: Ashford alphabet stamps.
I am seriously loving these little tiny pink acrylic hearts that are Gossamer Blue exclusives. I just want hundreds of them, please!
These rubber shapes from Pinkfresh Studio are also pretty cool and I could have used all of them except that I have plans for them. Too many plans, not enough time, people. Seriously.
The stamp set had these really awesome longer dotted line and vine images and I could use those all day long! I am always on the lookout for those types of stamps because they make great journaling lines.
I couldn't not use the watercolor journaling card - it is just too pretty and the quote is perfect. We spent the day at the pool the first day it opened for the season, and this is a great way to tell that story.
I did bring myself to use another rubber shape rather than hoard them. Also that hot air balloon? Adorbs.
These pictures from this week make me so happy. I realized I am in four of them. Sometimes the layouts are all about our kids, and sometimes it is ok to just include pictures of myself. Perhaps to some that may seem narcissistic, but one day our kids will treasure these moments of me and Alan enjoying life. Also, I look at these pictures and don't feel quite so broken inside. Yes, parts of me are broken and in pain. But look at how I am plugging through, making it with smiles and sunshine regardless of whatever is going on in the background. Yes.
I repeated the three elements on the side of the photo of me and Alan, and added a simple banner to the other last photo. The kids are actually in the pool, you can just see their tiny heads popping up. So happy to have this pool and to be able to relax here.
That's it for today. If you'd like to check out Gossamer Blue's kits, head on over there (enabler alert!): Gossamer Blue. See you back here tomorrow!
