First of all, I wanted to thank all of you for your kind thoughts and words after my last post. Depression is a scary and lonely place, and I’ve tried really hard not to let you all see that side of things because I want this place to be my happy zone, but sometimes things just have to come out. It’s still not easy going over here, but we’re making the best of the situation and working on some things that will make things better for us in the long run. Your comments on that post kept me afloat and mean more to me than you can possibly know. Now let’s get back to happier things, shall we?
This is my 2 page layout for Project Life. I think I’m getting a little better at embellishing and including little bits of life. I really want to get good at this. I thoroughly enjoy being able to scrap a layout in literally minutes.
Week 2 Page 1
I thought it might be fun to include a new recipe we tried. It was really good. We’ll probably put it into our regular rotation. I just used one of the fold in half journaling cards. I did my journaling on the outside “cover” and put the recipe on the inside. I love that this could become not just an album, but also a collection of our favorite recipes.
I also included some flowers I pressed. (Though sadly, not long enough, they kind of shriveled after I took the picture. Oh well.) I also cut out the cardboard cover from our copy of the new Muppets movie. We’re huge Muppets fans and spent our Friday evening relaxing in front of the tube enjoying some Blizzards from Dairy Queen.
This is my favorite bit from this week and something I’ll definitely be doing more often. If you have a barcode scanner on your phone you should be able to scan the QR code above to watch a video of Scrappy Dog and one of his favorite toys. It was super simple and if you’d like a tutorial on how to do it, leave me a comment below. 🙂
