My Life IS a Project!

Honest!  It really is!  I know I'm here by God's grace and I know He isn't finished with me yet, therefore, I'm His project!  Some days I feel like His "pet project" and some days I feel like I've been put on the shelf!  That's just how life goes and that's okay because I'm still here!  He hasn't finished with me yet; I hope He doesn't any time soon!

I have a smattering of projects in my craft dungeon, some are high priority and some are definitely riding on the back burner.  I bet you can relate!  My crafty time is really limited right now with ball season in full swing. Well, let me tell you, Becky Higgins Project Life makes it so easy to create wonderful memory pages without a whole lot of time involvement.  My kind of scrapping!  Project Life offers a variety of page protectors and they do have some really cute card inserts, however, it's a lot more fun and economical to stamp and create your own!  I think it gives your pages a more personal touch.

I'm way behind on photos and scrap booking (I know I'm not the only one, don't laugh at me!) and these are some pictures of my daughters wedding six and a half years ago.  Yeah, yeah, I'm WAY behind!  That cute little blond bomb in the tux is my son, Daniel, he's now 10 and still just as cute!  Oh, and here's a fun fact for you!  Daniel and my daughter that's getting married in these photos, Rachel, were born on the same day 18 years apart!

For this layout, I used Happy Messages Perfectly Clear Stamps™ by Stampendous® and Hand of Friendship Perfectly Clear Stamps™ by Stampendous®.  I stamped the images on Neenah Classic Crest using Memento Tuxedo Black.  Next I colored the floral images with Copics and edged each piece with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Mowed Lawn.  This was incredibly fast, easy and fun!

Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you again soon!  Hope you have a wonderful day!

Hugs,
Lea
