Gathering Supplies for 52 Weeks

I’ve been reading the posts on Ali Edward’s blog on a Week in the Life of. I’m thinking about my album and I’m starting to figure out what I want to get.

Album 8.5 x 11

Page protectors

  • Pink Paisley Set (maybe) It has a nice mix of different types of page protectors.
  • 6 x 4 Page Protectors

Journal Cards

  • Going to make some that will fit the size of the page protectors 🙂

Stamps (I want to have a set of stamps that I’ll use specifically for this project)

Digital Elements

  • Pages that will fit the page protectors

Until I get my supplies together I’m taking pictures and journaling on 3 x 5 index cards.


Zetti Stamps Arrived & Creative Type Prompt #3

Actually they came last week. But, I finally had an opportunity to use them. The Prompt #3 at the Creative Type this week was to focus on a quote. I don’t think I followed the challenge correctly as it’s not really focused on type, so I’m not sharing my link on their site.  Not cause I don’t love their challenges…. when I created it, type didn’t come as a focus for me. I added it to the challenge 🙂 See what Zetti’s do to you?

Anyways… with the opportunity of a challenge I used the my pretty little zetti’s.

This is the LO:

It was the most profound realization I had about my son’s inner strength, when I read what he picked for his quote. It reflects his own self acceptance.
“You all laughed at me because I’m different.
I laugh at you because you’re all the same.”

I’ve been playing around with digital scrapbooking and I decided to take a little break from it and play with paper again. This is a LO of Casey and I. Photograph is from 2007.

Me, Right Now? Well Almost

So, i can’t believe it. I drafted something up. It definitely won’t be ready for the submission… not good enough to submit, but I will finish this one. I’m actually liking it…

Maybe me right now will be me tomorrow or this weekend?

Won’t You Say You Love Me Too?

This is a journal page I created for Jarred.  I created the layout in PS7. Printed it out on cardstock and color Barney in with crayons. I then went back and randomly stamped the 3 dot image using grape sherbert and edged the page with kentucky green.
