Project Life Album :: #17DaysOfThankful (it’s my version) :: November 2014

For this project I decided to use the perfect pieces from the Take Ten Kits November 2014 kit. I love the colors! And the images! They’re beautiful and perfect for what I was going to do.

This started with me misunderstanding, as usual, something I knew nothing about. I thought I understood it but clearly I did not.

There are TWO things: 30 Days of Thankful and December Daily. I thought there was only one thing. I thought it started on Thanksgiving, hence the Thankful, and went all the way through Christmas. There was the December, too, so I thought the Thankful, the December, oh, I had it all mixed up! So, without realizing it, I went on with my planning. I counted and I came up with 40 Days. 40 Days of…Crazy, I decided.

So suddenly it was November 1st and everyone was talking about 30 Days of Thankful and I decided to jump right in- even though I was starting again on Thanksgiving, I wanted to do this along with everyone else. Until the 17th. So, I used the Collect app for this experiment. And I loved it! I love the clean look of it, which is typically the opposite of what I normally do. I love color.

Anyway, I decided to jump in on November 1st. And to go only through November 17th. So it would be 17 Days of Thankful. Why? because the 18th is my birthday and that would be a whole separate page. I would then take a break until Thanksgiving and start my 40 Days of Crazy.

Welcome to my 17 Days of Thankful! (just pretend it’s a thing)

 

This is the left side of my 2 page layout.

Here is the card for November 1st from the Collect app I have on my iPhone. It keeps an image for each day and you can make a note on it. The app collects it in calendar form, which I love!

This is an adorable metal coffee cup paper clip thingy! It was in the Take Ten Kits for November 2014. Perfect for my Day 1.

The Grateful and the Take Note card are both from the Take Ten Kits November 2014 kit. Beautiful colors and images!

My calico Chloe. I had to keep shooing her away cause she really wanted to just lie on top of my Project Life album! I don’t even want to think about the cat hair sticking to everything, the pockets, the static, ugh!! Shoo! Chloe! Get away! She was terribly frightened- can’t you tell?

The Good Stuff card is also from the Take Ten Kits November 2014 kit. Fabulous for my 17 Days of Thankful! Because the everyday stuff we are thankful for really is the Good Stuff.

This is the right side of my 2 page layout.

The Deer card and the Thankful card are also from the Take Ten Kits November 2014 kit.

Thankful. I really am.

Here is both pages of the 2 page layout for my #17DaysOfThankful. I had a great time with this project and I need a break until my #40DaysofCrazy.

Project Life Album :: Good Times with Friends :: October 2014

It’s October! This was a two unexpected events that just happened to come a few weeks apart, with the same old family friends that we have known forever.

My husband’s family and his best friend’s family owned orchards on land next to each other. They had a pretty unusual childhood compared to mine. To be free to play, run, and do bad things together in acres of beautiful fruit trees.

My layout is pretty simple. The lines from the stamps next to the letters drive me crazy. Maybe those stamps aren’t the best ones to use but I tried!

My husband, right, his best friend in the middle, and his cousin on the left. They were talking about the time their high school baseball team played against Barry Bonds. And one day he came into our pharmacy! Crazy coincidence. The bottom photo is with a woman that I know from my daughter’s high school. Our daughters were best friends, are still best friends.

Three important, really great women. I love them.

To remember the reason for the great get together, I printed photos from the luncheon and made them about 2″ small!

And we hadn’t seen this family of friends in a few years. It was great catching up with all of them.

I love the center cards. They really capture the feel of family (yes, I consider them family!) and autumn.

We had a busy October!

Take Ten Kits :: Project Life :: Shopping :: August 2014

 I had the perfect shopping cards both large and small from Take Ten Kits for my shopping layout!

Even though we didn’t get his school clothes from Target, we are constantly going there for various items- it’s basically across the street from where we live.

 

My cat Chloe is looking at my Project Life album thinking about the scrapbooking stuff she needs.

My mother. Oh, how she loved shopping. Her favorite place was Loehmann’s by far. She passed away last year and this was the perfect place to keep the card that she passed down to me, and then my daughter. My daughter’s $250 prom dress was only $37 after she used the card and coupon. My mother and my daughter were very pleased about that!

My friend and I went out to an antique show on their opening day and we were very excited. It was pretty fun and then we went and had lunch afterwards. And on the tag, I wrote about the whole month of August, not just about the photos.

 This layout wasn’t too fussy and didn’t have a lot of embellishments but the graphics were so great it didn’t need any!

Take Ten Kits: only $10 a month without commitment! Opt out any month.
