February 2017 Project Life

Happy Saturday!  Woot woot!!

I wanted to pop in and share some progress on my #the100dayproject.  I'm soooo glad I decided to do this project because it's totally helped me catch up with the year in a manageable way, and allowing me to stay true to my memory-keeping style.

Today I'm going to share my February spread with you.  It ended up being 3 pages and I used a ton of the With all my Heart collection from Pretty Little Studio:




It's so much fun seeing it all come together!

Have a happy weekend!

Some Jillibean Soup Shares

Good morning!  I wanted to pop in and share a few projects that I have had on the Jillibean Soup blog recently.

The first is this layout based on a sketch challenge designed by Summer Fullerton:

I also created this card by backing a lot of kraft circle tags with the new Souper Celebration collection:

And finally this layout created for our team up with Page Maps...loved digging into my Healthy Hello Soup stash to create this one:

Thanks for stopping in - happy hump day!

A Few More NSD Challenge Layouts

Good morning everyone!  I wanted to pop in and share a few additional layouts that I made last weekend for some NSD challenges.

The first one was for a Felicity Jane challenge - use blue, stripes and stamping.  I'm so in love with my Felicity Jane kits and I really love how this one turned out.  I roughly lifted a layout from Annelie Maddock to create this one:

The second one was a combined challenge - a sketch challenge from Paper Issues and another challenge from Hip Kit Club to use pink and fussy-cut florals.  I used some of my Bella Blvd stash to create this one:

I couldn't participate in as many challenges as I wanted to last weekend because I had to write a paper for grad school (yuck), but I am happy with what I was able to whip up!

Thanks for stopping in!

Project Life || January 2017

Good morning everyone!  I wanted to pop in and share a Project Life spread that I had on the Pretty Little Studio blog this past weekend.
As you are aware, I have been participating in #the100dayproject and it has gotten me back on track and is helping me catch up on all my missing PL spreads.
  
I decided to use the Ain't Life Grand collection for the majority of this spread and I love how bright and colorful it all turned out.  I really wanted to use happy colors to highlight the happy news that we got in January - that we are expecting our first child!  :)
Here's a look at the whole spread:
And a closer look at each individual side:
Thanks so much for stopping in!!

Exciting News + National Scrapbooking Day

Hello!!  Happy NSD!!  I'm popping with some exciting news this evening.  I don't usually share a whole lot about my personal life here, but I'm excited to share...and come September, you'll notice a new subject in my scrapbooking projects:
We are so excited that Baby Girl Benjamin will be making her appearance in just a few short months!

And with that news, I share a layout that I made for the Elle's Studio NSD challenges.  The challenge: scrap a big moment...so I scrapped the picture we took the day we found out that BB (Baby Benjamin) is a girl!  I used the older Cienna collection for this layout...and it was the perfect collection to use.
I'll be back to share more of my NSD challenges later in the week...happy weekend!
