I am noticing a trend with my recent project life pages.. they are getting more and more simple.
Which is an ok thing.
When I first started.. my project life pages were more of a reflection of my actual scrapbook layouts. I do think they still are, but on a much simpler level.
This was my first layout using only filler/journal cards in the smaller pockets. Honestly, I found this alone simplified the process a lot! It was so much easier for me to just print 4×6 photos and add the cards along the middle.
..yeah yeah… I know, kind of the way the entire project life system was intended right? lol
Point of today’s post.. as much as I enjoy creating pages that are a bit more complex, it is perfectly ok to keep it simple every now and then as well! I need to remind myself that more and more as I try to catch up! hee!
..journal cards used are all from the most recent set, available in the dearest someday shop.
I am so excited for this weekend.. my girl and I are finally going to get around to making some terrariums! We found the most fabulous succulents last night.. and we just can not wait to get them into some glass containers!
Laine was actually all ready to go quite some time ago. For Christmas, my mom gave her a collection of fabulous glass containers.. fun rocks and items to decorate with and a selection of small plants and succulents. Oh, and her gift also included this awesome book.. full of inspirational ideas! She has been taking care of her plants since then.. but we haven’t got around to actually putting together any terrariums. Such a shame, I know!
..actually, that is a lie! I just remember that she has already made one! She did a great job.. it is a simple one with moss and a little deer figurine. So adorable!
Then, while we were in Edmonton last month, we found these glass containers at Urban Outfitters.. so we each had to buy one! Of course! ..and now we have even more succulents to play with, so we are definitely good to go!
Yes.. I think it is going to be a great weekend!
Last night after dinner, I whispered in my daughter’s ear.. “what do you think about going out to take some pictures.. just me and you?” ..and just like that we were running around the house, grabbing items to take.. changing clothes… and we were out the door within minutes.
We drove out of town.. following the setting sun. Watching for spots as we went. We ended up out at Saskatoon Island.. which was so peacefully quiet. We literally followed a rabbit into the woods and set up the shoot.
Seriously. A rabbit lead the way.. it couldn’t have been more perfect!
Here are just a few of my favourites from our evening together..
I just love how one moment we were on the couch settling in to watch The Voice (yes, we are huge fans).. and the next moment we were doing this. We talked, told stories.. laughed, there were even a few tears as she told me about some struggles. It was a moment that I would have liked to go on forever.
My girl is growing up, and it was bittersweet for me today as I took these images off of my camera.. it is so apparent to me in these pictures.
Yes, we need to have more moments just like this.
..thank you for following along with me on my facebook page today as I added these pictures one by one, I couldn’t help it! hee! xoxo
They are up! The newest set of cards.. perfect for project life! The day has flown, and this blog post is a little late.. but I am so so so excited to share this set with you.
..hope you enjoy it!
