Project Life Week 8

Week 8 of Project Life
and it is still going strong...
this week I changed up my design a bit..
still the same amount of elements
just viewing it differently not to get too bored with  the look.
Here is my 2 page layout.

For the first page I placed my journaling pocket on the top sideways.. so you still can pull out all the
bits of extras in there.. I have my journaling for the week and some extra photo's with my weekly
collage photo and journaling on the backs of those.. The flair i got here.. from my friend Sasha Farina
she is on vacation so check back for her beautiful flair collections.

The stamps I used this week are from Unity Stamp Company.. those lovely flowers are one of the images I made in this February KOM.  the other stamps are Ali Edwards,
and some from Kelly Purkey.

The Chevron patterned papers are my design.. I have a dream...haha yet another to
come out with my own papers.. and I just love chevron.. love these bold colours too.
I might need to open a digital shop with my papers , once I figure it all out. haha

So here we are another week.. lots of fun playing with these images, stamps, photo's.. I love PL.
for more Project Life inspiration check out the Mom Creative

See you next week with Week 9

Project Life Weeks 5-7

WOW.. I can't believe I have not posted these weeks.. with my daughter being so sick on week 5 I was up to date but just couldn't find the time to take photo's.. so this is what I did today.. got all my
weeks done, journaling typed and took photo's of all three weeks.. not I am up to date and I am
just loving my Project Life.. and how it is turning out.
I know I usually do most of my stamping with Unity.. but with so
many wonderful stamps for this one project I thought I would
indulge and purchase some non Unity stamps.. I know
crazy... but I am being adventurous..haha
so here is Week 5
a week of sickness, doctors appointments, and more sickness.

that typewriter stamp is one of my new stamps in the February KOM.. I love it!!
okay so a little Unity.. it is hard..

Week 6
I was able to help out at Crop & Create for this weekend and got to meet
Kelly Purkey.. I helped her in 2 of her classes.. she is so wonderful,

Now Week 7
all up to date.. woo hoo!!
More Kelly Purkey Bright Idea stamps, KI memories  (click click flashback) stamps

there ya go.. 3 weeks.. let's see if I can keep up.. but for now at least I am still on top of it.
One day at a time...
happy day.

Happy Hour ...Valentines {be inspired}

Hello Thursday..
Happy Valentine's Day..
 I don't know about you but this week flew by..

Time just passed me by.. but I am not complaining..

We announced that we are doing a Unity {be inspired} Challenge..
combining 3 different challenge.. so you have a chance to pick
whatever you would like..
 We have a colour challenge.. the inspirational photo choices 
these are all picked by Angela Magnuson.. I so love this.
Then we have 2 sketches done by our very own
Unity Artista Joslyn Nielson.. she is AMAZING!!
have you noticed that we have our Unity stamps in the sketches..
how incredibly awesome it that.. tons of Inspiration just looking at it.

I think it goes amazingly well with this colour board.
Using lots of fun paint, book paper, and a ton of Unity Stamps..
