Project Life Blog Hop: February

This year, my former Becky Higgins Creative Teammates of 2014 are getting together for a blog hop each month. I'm using these monthly blog hops to recap the Project Life spreads I worked on over the past month. This month I have just one spread to share, but it's a favorite and one I completed for my 2010 album.

I love how this spread came together, more specifically the journaling. As I've said previously, I find a lot of the details for my journaling for past years by searching my email from that timeframe.  For this particular spread, I took those details and let the prompts from one of Peppermint's kits to lead my journaling.

Project Life 2010 Summer

DSC_1844.jpg

At the beginning of the year I set a goal to work on a 2010 album alongside my current album for 2014. Everything went smoothly through March, but then I jumped to September and had a hard time going back. I finally made time last month while Beau was out of town to get back into it, which mostly just meant forcing myself to close out my 2014 Lightroom library and open up 2010. Sometimes the first steps are the hardest. Once I had the 2010 photos on my screen again, the stories started jumping out of the photos, ready to be written down.

Completing this spread really reminded me of why I'm going back and documenting 2010. Our lives have changed so much in just 4 years and Ephram won't remember any of it.  Even I will have a hard time remembering it someday.

In this spread I used several of Ali Edwards' digital brushes to print onto journaling cards.  The 'storm' word art came from a free download she shared several years ago.  The 'around here' and arrows are from her new prompts.

In July 2010, Ephram turned 4 months old and I started capturing his smile on camera more frequently.  I knew I wanted to go big with that photo of him sort of sitting so I tried out a Design E page in this spread.

Since I had already picked out some journaling cards to use with the photos from this page before deciding to use the square format of Design E, I cut them into 3x3 squares and stapled them together to form a large 6x6 square.

The 'celebrate America' is another free download by Ali Edwards and I printed it on the tag by running it through the printer the same way I do with journaling cards. Super easy!
