MM and Project Life

This week's Mojo Monday challenge I thought I'd do something cool and wintery.  I wanted to branch away from my urge to create Valentine's Day cards.  I have had this paper for a while and I'm so glad I had a chance to use it.  I love the different shades of blue. 

I used 3 snowflake brads instead of the 5 on the sketch.  I actually forgot about the other sketch element until after I had finished, so I just left it out. 

My wonderful news today is my Project Life kit showed up.  I was expecting to open the door to a solicitor, but there it was.  Ah, the shouts of joy and gladness when I saw my box and pulled it inside. For those who don't know, this is a new kit from scrapbook guru Becky Higgins (Creating Keepsakes).  Last year she did a kit called Project 365.  It was wildly popular.  The idea was to take a picture a day for an entire year.  Also to write a little blurb about each picture and each day. Project Life gives you a little more freedom in that you don't have to keep up on a picture a day.  You can customize it to your needs.  See Becky's blog for more info. Becky's Blog Here

Here's a shot of everything inside.  I've already started taking pictures for it!  Yipee!
I love the idea of recording the little things, not just the big events.

Here's my picture for today.  This is what I'm listening to in my kitchen lately.  Tell me if you're doing Project Life too.


  1. Your card is just lovely. The project life sounds pretty neat. I like the idea of recording the little things also.

  2. I like this idea, I've been taking a picture I day, but haven't decided what to do with them. I am heading over to Becky's site right now!
