I have been trying to play catch up this week in getting my photos and stuff together for recording the first month of Project Life. I have found a couple of things that I need to improve on for sure. I need more photos to have a variety to document and I need to vary my photos in a weeks layout. It ended up that the first week is documenting Weight Watchers and not much else even though I had new purchases from 2 peas and SimonSaysStamp, we had a family Christmas get together at Rose and Chucks and other things occured.
I have been participating in Pretty Paper Party at http://www.Shimelle.com and loving it. I haven't been as active as I would have wanted because 2 days after the start of this class, John's mom passed and we were busy with the funeral and wake. I generally just didn't feel it and wanted to respect my feelings of sadness at Mary's passing. She was a lovely lady, mother of 9, grandmother, great grandmother and great-great grandmother. Her husband, Harold, passed 2 years prior and they are now together in heaven.
So now I will show the page I have done for several of the topics in Pretty Paper Party:
I made the ribbon roses using a technique that Shimelle shared in one of the Glitter Girl episodes. I will be using this technique again. I also used a doily cut from my Cameo that I cut in half and used on the flap of a vellum envelope that contains hidden journaling. The journaling talks about my vanity ( I didn't realize I had any) and how I am not thrilled with any pictures of myself, thus the filmstrip and camera washi tapes.
