Tag - February

I'm not a huge tag person but when I received a challenge from a friend in the US, I couldn't resist.  Tim Holtz on his blog is creating various tags throughout the year and I was challenged to create the February one.  I don't have a lot of Tim's products so I used what I had to hand.  I painted a brown tag white and stamped hearts with red ink.  I then made the rosette out of chipboard and scrunched up paper.

I then inked a chipboard heart and covered it with red stickles.  I added ribbon along the bottom with a heart ribbon charm and finished it off with a piece of Bazzill Just the Edge on the top and some mini alpha stickers.

Considering this is my first ever tag, I'm quite pleased with it and I had fun making it.

Project Life - Week 2

Week 2

We had some lovely sunsets this week so one of those featured in my album, as did a picture that my daughter drew.  On the reverse of the drawing I inserted a letter which she had written at school as part of her World War 2 topic.

On the next page there are photos of the first bunch of tulips I have bought this year, a fun games night and a walk that we did on the Sunday.

Week 3

Page one was of a trip I did to Chester Zoo with my kids School and my son playing on his DS.  I added in a picture my daugher had drawm and a piece of packaging I had received.

On the second page are more photos but I have had to pixelate some information out to protect the privacy of some friends.

The 'One Little week' insert is a download from Ali Edwards blog.

Project Life

 I am doing Project Life this year.  I thought very hard about whether I should go ahead with it as I feel as though I have so many photos and stories to scrap that I won't have time to fit this in as well.  But now I am into week 5 I must say I am totally addicted and love it!  I am already loving  going back through the album to read the stories of what we have done so far this year.  So here is my introduction page.  I am going to add in other pictures of the children soon.

I was very excited to get started on this project and had all my stuff organised and read to go. 

I bought some digital numbers by Ali Edwards here as I think there will be so versatile and added one into the pocket for Week 1.  Here is the full page spread.

The first page was the New Year celebrations in London and what we did on New Year's day.

The second page detailed how my daughters love to make cakes.  I added in some journaling and it was done.

Love it!
