ECT | Life Album | August

EACH MONTH SEEMS TO BE BLENDING INTO THE NEXT. WOULD YOU AGREE THE YEAR HAS SAILED BY FAST, WE ARE HEADING TOWARDS THE DECEMBER BREAK WITH GREAT SPEED, WHICH MEANS THERE ARE STORIES TO TELL AND SHARE.
THE ESSENCE JOURNAL CARDS ARE A GREAT WAY TO ASSIT YOU IN DOCUMENTING YOUR STORY. THEY ARE JAM PACKED WITH A VARIETY OF BLANKS, FILL IN THE BLANKS AND LOTS OF PROMPTS IF YOU NEED A STARTING POINT, AS YOU CAN SEE FROM AIMEE'S LIFE ALBUM SPREAD. MY PERSONAL FAV ARE THE QUOTE CARDS AND YOU CAN SEE THESE SPREAD THROUGH OUT EACH TEAM'S PROJECT
WHAT WILL YOU DOCUMENT NEXT MONTH? WILL YOU BE CRAFTING A GREAT LIFE- WE HJOPE SO AND WE HOPE IT'S TERRIFIC
ENJOY,

This year I have been a little lax with my Project Life. Last year I was really strict on myself until Mog came to live with us and the wheels fell of the wagon. Looking after a kid fulltime is HARD. REALLY HARD.  Week 46 (This week) was Mog’s 4th week with us and I was finally beginning to find my grove. I got the hang of filling all the compartments in her lunch box, I discovered new dinners (other than fish fingers) that she liked to eat and we finally got to swim lessons on time.  This week was as good as it gets, even if it was all about Mog.

From a design point of view I kept it simple, I have nearly 30 weeks to catch up on and sometimes it’s better to just get something done. 

I recently devised a new system for storing my Essence PL cards and it made putting together this layout a cinch. All my journaling cards and filler cards are Essence along with the Scallop pattern card from the bebe line. I highlighted this card by using a few other strong geometric patterns such as the triangle washi tape and the rainbow pattern paper. I’m really happy with the way this layout turned out, it’s clean and simple (a la the Essences style), but has great pops of colour (totally my style).

Ah, my Life Album is still my favourite form of memory keeping. 
This week was a bit of an up and down. Not much happened in the way of events, and so I journaled a bit more than usual. It was a completely mundane week of dog washes, vet visits, to do lists, creating, health checkups, and expensive celebration breakfasts (although I can't remember what we were celebrating!). 
The beautiful muted colours of Empire Bebe really tied in well with the week.

This week's Life Album has been my favourite so far. Just look at the Essence Empire Bebe range teamed with Paislee Press. What a winner hybrid combo, if you ask me. We didn't do much, but it was more than enough for me. Window shopping for birthdays, wish lists for birthdays, healthy hamburgers at our fav joint for family time, some brotherly love (my boys that is). It all just seemed a pretty cruisy week topped with some beautiful colours and of course white. Oh and not to forget a hair tutorial. My kinda week.
