Yesterday I clicked "send" on my submission for the 2014 Project Life Design Team call. I submitted my layouts last year as well. I do it, not because I think I have a big chance of being chosen, but because I know I would regret it if I let the deadline slip past me and I did nothing. We shall see!
As I was pulling together my submission I decided to use my brand new Amy Tan Cut & Paste mini kit and whip out a couple new layouts. When I first received the Cut & Paste kit (it was free-ish; long story) I flipped through the cards and thought, "ehh." It looked just so-so. But, then as I started playing with it and choosing cards for my layout, and I ended up really really liking it. Go figure!
On the left page I included journaling from this blog post: my busy // my blessings
The font for "happy birthday anna" is called Mayonnaise. I used a Design F photo pocket page for the right side.
The following week's layout utilizes the back of the previous Design F photo pocket page. This was my first time using this layout and I quite like it!
Just a few random photos from the week . . . not much happened outside of the ordinary and I didn't take many photos until the weekend.
Family photos and General conference dominated the weekend. And I'm reminding myself - yet again - that I need to pull out my DSLR more often. iPhone photos are great, but I fall in love with my pictures (and their stories) so much more when they come from the big camera.

Project Life is a back to basics approach to memory keeping. I've been dabbling in Project Life since Becky Higgins released the first kit in 2009. I love that it is simple, streamlined, and keeps the focus on the photos and the memories. (The extra supplies & design-y stuff is totally optional.) Learn more about it here.
