Project Life :: My Version of That One Little Word :: January 2015

I loved the idea of the One Little Word by Ali Edwards but it wasn’t exactly what I was thinking of. I needed something new, something that wasn’t open for all to see what I wrote. 

So I wrote bible quotes that I love, quotes that mean something to me, ones that I wanted to write why they meant something to me, and what the situation was that made me love it.

My word was Faith.

And I wrote the definition and used alphas to highlight my word.

This is what the back of my tags look like. I am not quite finished with them, but the year’s not over yet, right? 🙂

Then they slide right back into their pockets.

I hope if you find a project that you love but don’t like that particular process that you adapt it to what you want it to be. It’s your album, your life – make it yours!

Project Life :: Goodnight, Sweet Neumann :: October 2015

We had Nuemann since he was a little, chubby 8 weeks old Pug puppy. He was 15 years old this month. We will miss him.

He was 15 years old on the left, and 13 on the right.

We had a great time with him.

Here he is with his sister Pearl. She was adorable. They were only 6 months apart and always together.

She was mostly deaf and blind in one eye so she followed Neumann everywhere he went. They loved each other. But they’re together again and running free. We enjoyed them for so many years. For that I am thankful.

A Selfie Challenge: Project: #myselfiescrapbook :: Prompt #2: Let’s See Me/From Where I Stand + Prompt #3: One Look: 3 Ways :: 2015

This has been such great fun for me!

You can find this fabulous project here: Sunlight & Air blog:  www.jenniferlake.com

I’m using bright paper from Messy Box and a few other papers from my stash. I’m also brightening up my photos a little to match. I’m 52 so filters are important to me. hahaha. No, seriously.

I decided to put my #myselfiescrapbook pages in a Project Life album that I’m just putting projects in. I didn’t want to make a whole other 4×4 album. I’ve been scrapbooking for 15 years and my kids will have to deal with my scrapbooks at some point.

…..     …..     …..     …..

This weeks page includes This week includes 2 parts of

Prompt #2: Let’s See Me/From Where I Stand

The first part is a photo revealing your whole self, not just hands, face, hair, shirt or whatever. Also somehow, I also have From Where I Stand on either side of the Let’s See Me photo- so it’s little mixed up but came out okay.

Also on this same page on the bottom row:

Prompt #3: One Look, 3 Ways

Top pockets: Prompt #2: Let’s See Me

I couldn’t resist using this wood frame that I stamped #selfie. Stamp is by Take Ten Kits. You can find them here: http://www.thestudio29design.com

Bottom pockets: Prompt #3: One look, 3 ways. I did 3 earrings with a dress but the jean jacket took over the photos. However, the earrings also matched the navy printed long dress.

I used tiny alphas on clear squares on a label.

I’m having a lot of fun with this project. My Project Life albums are about what I like about life, not necessarily a photo journal of our family life. With one child away at college, and the other away in another city there aren’t much ‘family’ photos or events- but when there are, I catch them all!

Here are the left and right side facing pages: Prompts 1, 2 and 3 plus the tab I made.
