Wow. How did it get to be April already? This year is just whizzing by.
Since it is the start of another month, that means it’s time to share last month’s Project Life spread. I love using the Project Life method to help me capture every day memories and to have a place to put the “stuff” I love to keep, but I just can’t do it weekly anymore. I’m finding that monthly is just the right pace for me and I’m still having fun making my spreads. And that’s the most important thing, right?
I used the Hey Girl! collection from Basic Grey for these pages. I was pleasantly surprised when I looked through the papers at my JoAnn store. I loved the patterns. I loved Basic Grey years ago but they haven’t been on my radar in a long time. All three of the paper collections currently out in JoAnn stores are really nice. Especially when you get them at 50% off!
This month had a little more going on, though I was so busy I generally forgot to take many photos. I forget photos when it’s boring, I forget photos when it’s busy. I guess I just like that in between spot best! Anyway, my schedule changed significantly this month (more on that eventually…I have a layout in the works!) and I’m trying hard to balance work vs play and figuring out when I really need to just chill and do nothing and when I need to spend time crafting because it helps to re-energize me.
This month I added a photo I found on Google showing the new Pope in the Cistine Chapel. Since I have stood in the Cistine Chapel and was not allowed to take photos, I really wanted to include this print. It’s such a stunning room. I also picked up the last Twilight movie to finish the collection. I only read the books a year ago so I wasn’t in on the whole craze while it was happening. I enjoyed them more than I thought I would but I just don’t get what all the fuss was about.
I do have one added insert this month. (This page protector is from Martha Stewart’s office collection at Staples.) My nephews came to Florida for their Spring Break. Things were very low key this year as none of us wanted to hit the theme parks. Been there, done that. Now that I live down the street from the theme parks again, there just isn’t an urgency to go all the time. So we just hung out and the boys had a good time anyway. Unfortunately, my schedule did not allow for an extended visit, so my photos are very limited. Can there be anything sadder for a scrapbooker?
This month I also included two cards from a friend, a fun order from Two Peas, a new cracker discovery and the moon rising. All in all, good times.
I hope you had a great March too!
Thanks for stopping by today.
