February Project Life peek...

In Project Life layouts, each pocket is a mini layout that calls for little embellishments and little letters. I love it! Here I have documented my son, Jack, playing cricket (very Australian).  Sporting photos are notoriously hard to scrapbook. With Project Lift a whole page doesn't have to be devoted to just that topic.

Thanks for peeking in my album. Enjoy your weekend...

Studio Calico stash...

Hooray! My Studio Calico Neverland scrapbook kit (photo no 1) arrived at my house. Like many Australian SC subscribers it was delayed by 2 weeks in Australian customs.  I feared it would never come.

I love it. The prettiest paper is on top - don't you just love it? So feminine. I heart the alphabet too.

Also in the cute brown box was the add-on from the Studio Calico February kit Big Screen (photo no 2). I adored Front Row scrapbooking kit and the add-on Junior Mints so was delighted to purchase another one from this collection.  It is just as scrummy.

I can't wait to begin playing with the products. I now own my first mask and second Mr Hueys mist spray.  I will try to be game enough to use in on a layout in the next week or two. Watch this space. 

Hope you enjoy some scrappy time...

First Project Life pages ever!

I have joined the thousands (or is it millions?) who have turned to Project Life to record the precious moments of life.

I'm committing to creating a double layout featuring the month's highlights during 2013. Although PL is usually recorded weekly I don't think I could manage it without getting way behind.  I am using PL products that come in the Studio Calico scrapbooking kits and my own stash.

Pictured are my January PL pages...

Page 1 records memories like the hottest day ever in Hobart, Tasmania, tragic bushfires 50km away which destroyed 200 homes and my 17th Wedding Anniversary dinner.

Page 2 shares some party times for my mother's birthday and beach holidays.

What I have enjoyed about PL is that there are often lots of moments (such as my parents' birthdays) that I don't get around to scrapping. In PL I can record this type of memory in relatively little time.

Do you participate in PL?  If so, do you do weekly or monthly layouts? I would love to say hello.

Hope you had some scrappy time on the weekend.
