Digital Project Life : Week Forty-Seven

Only five more weeks until the end of the year. WHA????????

I don’t know what’s harder to believe–the fact the the year is almost over, or that I almost have a whole year of Project Life completed! Still loving this project.

Week 47 was filled with some Christmas preparations (namely hanging outdoor lights) as well as the Thanksgiving holiday. Not too many photos this week either, I think I am taking it easy as I gear up for December Daily. Which starts Saturday. Goodness. I hope I am ready for all of this! I tried to put together some pages in preparation for it, but for some reason that’s just not how I roll with December Daily. This will be my fourth year doing it, and every year I create a page in the evening from scratch. I bought a bunch of templates, and even decided on my papers/color scheme, but the rest? It just comes together as I go! Thankfully that seems to work for me.

I have a feeling that this past week sort of geared me up for what working with the Seafoam Kit is going to be like. This was actually an Echo Park Halloween Paper Kit, but I really like all of the colors so I used it anyway! Didn’t have many embellishments, just the usual text boxes and brushes.

Left Side:

This side was my favorite side. (Sometimes I feel like my “b-side” is really dull. All of my creativity comes out on the left, and by the time I get to the right I am just too tired to get too crazy!!!) I managed to get only one photo on Thanksgiving. This happens to me at virtually every party I go to, I always get wrapped up in what is going on, and forget to take photos! But the one I did get tells the story of the day anyway. Whenever dinner is at Justin’s aunt and uncle’s house we ride four-wheelers and have a lot of fun outside. This year was no exception! This side also includes a couple of shots from my photo shoot with the girls over the weekend. I found a super cool red building, and it was 60 degrees for the last time this year, so I went for it. (Cranky baby and all!) Holly had a TON of fun modeling in her boots!

Right Side:

More photos from our park shoot on this page, plus a favorite from my iphone of Justin putting our Christmas lights up. I also got a shot of Holly going to the door to collect her kiwicrate on the stoop–she loves getting her own mail more than anything! The Week in Review Card made a comeback. (Doesn’t it always when I am light on photos?!?!)

Onto week 48–the week Marie turned ONE. Cute first birthday shots to be shown soon.

AND some shares from photo sessions this fall. I am still trying to finish up all Fall orders…when that’s done, I promise, there will be lots to see. Have a great week. See you Sunday for December Daily Post #1!!!!

  • libbywilko - I do love your A page but your b side is great too! Love the colours!ReplyCancel

  • Anne Marie - I love your blog! I currently do the non-digital project life and want to move to digital for 2013. May I ask what size pages you are doing and where you plan to print the pages?ReplyCancel

    • admin - Thanks Anne Marie! So excited to hear you are getting ready to jump on the digital bandwagon–you will be AMAZED at how easy it is! I make 12×12 pages, and this year my intent was to upload them to Shutterfly to put into a photobook. (They have an option where you can use your own scrapbook pages–I detail out the how-to on this post on the blog.) I probably will still do it this way for 2012–but I really think I am going to print them out and put them in a binder for 2013. I just love the look of extra inserts too much! I did a few pages as a “test” at and was BLOWN AWAY by the quality. I would recommend them very, very highly.ReplyCancel

  • Anne Marie - Thank-you so much for all of your advice! I like the idea of a binder as well – I like to add in pages as well…sometimes a little keepsake or a special piece of artwork. This is super helpful as I get started! Thanks so much!ReplyCancel
