Happy Tuesdayyyyy my friends! The new webisode is up at SiSTV and I'm so excited because there is a segment that talks about Project Catwalk and JJ shows my minibook! Yeayyy! I feel so honored! Click here to check it out...
So it's already week eleven of Project 365! WOW! I've been having so much fun with this project - it's got me taking pictures everywhere I go! I now find myself stopping on the side of the road to capture an interesting sign or building. I'm snapping out the window of the car when I stop at stoplights - I'm seeing the world in a whole new way and it's WONDERFUL!
I've been getting some questions about what Project 365 is so I want to share just a little bit about it again with you. I know there are a bunch of "Project 365s" out there, but I was introduced to the concept through Becky Higgins blog. Click here to see her post about the concept. Project 365 was the January Creating Keepsakes Kit of the Month. Unfortunately, it is all sold out now - in fact it sold out in mere minutes, which left a lot of people disappointed. I was lucky enough to get one, but it was backordered and I just recently received it. Since the sell-out, alot of people have been coming up with their own versions of the idea, and it really is something you can do without the kit. The concept is just to take one photo every day and document it with a little journaling. Click here to go to Becky's blog post that talks about alternatives to the kit for creating your own Project 365. There is also a yahoo group for Project 365 that you can access here. The yahoo group talks alot about different ways to create your own version of this project. I hope this helps. If you have any more questions, please leave them in the comments and I will try my best to answer them!
So, on to week eleven's photos! Here we go:
Monday, March 9. I keep my scrapbook collections in these boxes, which Johnny absolutely loves to curl up in. I guess having a slightly wrinkled Romantic collection is a small price to pay for having a happy cat!
Tuesday, March 10: After over two months of waiting, I finally received my Project 365 kit! Yeayyyyyyyyy!!!! It's so exciting!
Wednesday, March 11: I learned how to fold fat quarters of fabric!
Thursday, March 12: Crossing the Mississippi River with downtown Saint Paul in the background.
Friday, March 13. I've used the same palette for many years and I don't ever clean it. I love how colorful it has become!
Saturday, March 14: My friend Christina and I attended a 12-hour crop at my new neighborhood scrapbook store! It was so much fun!
A full garbage is a sign of a productive crop session! (Note: Since this is the second photo for Saturday, I printed it 2x3 and attached it to the journaling card on the bottom of the layout)
Sunday, March 15: I worked all day on this double-page spread for Scrapping The Music. It brought back some great memories of my high school days! I cropped it to fit on a 4x6 photo, so you don't see the whole layout here.
And here is how this week's layout turned out all put together and embellished (click to see details)...
For Saturday's journaling, I used one of the tri-fold cards, so I could include a second picture and write a longer story...
On a completely different note, I want to say Happy Birthday to my beautiful mother today! She was born on St. Patrick's Day and her name is Patty - isn't that awesome! I LOVE YOU MOM!
That's about it for today! I will be back tomorrow with another update - take care and happy scrapping!
