warning : LONG post ahead. ;) i've got a giveaway, some PL resources that i've come across in the last week, and my last week for 2011!! my first week for 2012 will be up over at 2peas TOMORROW as part of my new class. thank you all for the kind words + excitement over it - i can't wait till it goes live!
first up - a giveaway!! i'm planning a giveaway for each month of 2012 as a way to share some of my favorite PL products. to enter, just leave a comment on this post. i'll draw a winner on 1.20.2012.
here's what you can win :
week 52 // december 24-31 : christmas eve. christmas. new year's eve. and a whole lot in between. when i sat down to plan out my week, i decided i did NOT want to do an insert. so i edited. a lot. i also used the back page of the album to finish up the week. it worked out well.
lots of christmas eve / christmas day here. i couldn't resist adding the cinnamon roll wrapper - a totaly christmas morning tradition here.
i had to use the 1925 sticker from this crate label sheet - it's the year our house was built.
for christmas afternoon with family, i went with a photo collage. except the pic of matthew + the boys is from christmas morning, because i apparently missed snapping a photo of him at my grandma's. oops.
and the back page. i'll add ben's zoo name tag to that top pocket when i find it. ;)
you didn't think i'd close out 2011 without a little confetti did you?? =)
i am SO glad to have this album. even though there's a handful of weeks still missing, i love what it's captured. it's been an amazing experience - it's really made me rethink how i take photos + tell stories.
*how to recolor a journaling card by marcy penner (LOVE doing this!)
*FREE photo templates from paislee press - awesome for printing multiple small pics on a 4x6
*another free printable - 100 bits of life for project life - an awesome list by jessica of the mom creative of little things that can help round out your weeks. she also has a PL linkup on tuesdays - a great place to share your weeks + get inspiration!
happy saturday!! i've got a work/clean/catch up sort of day in front of me. not my favorite, but always worth it in the end. =)
(project life is a system created by becky higgins to take the stress of of scrapbooking. for me, its a reminder to pick up my camera and capture the everyday. you can learn more about how i use project life here, and you can find all of my project life updates here.)
