On our trip to New York we were amazingly lucky with the weather- the skies were vibrant blue as you can see with this photo of the Statue of Liberty. For this LO I used an embellishment I had with the subway map on it. It is stuck down very carefully so the tickets can be slotted in behind without sticking them down- in case I want to get them out ever.

special delivery

Over the Summer, when Prince William and Kate had their baby, Prince George, Nancy drew a picture and sent it to Buckingham Palace. In return she got a lovely thank you card in a special envelope postmarked Buckingham Palace.

the view project life seven

Another LO with a project life card slotted behind the pictures.
This LO is about the view from the gala dinner we went to in New York. It was held on the 40th floor of World Trade building seven in the New York Academy of Science.  We arrived before sunset so we had great views of New York by day and night. The pictures showthe Wollworth Building, the Brooklyn Bridge and Trinity Church.

This week the challenge at Scrap it With a Song is Payphone by Maroon 5. The line I used as inspiration is the line " even the sun sets in paradise." . I used an Instagram picture of the sunset on our summer holiday last year. The sky was amazing after a scorching hot day in Belgium.

best seats project life 6

This LO has a large project life card behind the photo mixed with some other journaling card items in similar colours.  When my children visit the cinema their absolute favourite place to sit is the back row, right in the middle across the aisle.

me and the ants project life 5

This LO only has one Project Life card on it tucked behind the paper and photos. 
The photo is from Twycross Zoo toilets. Yes the toilets. They have a mirror in front of the sinks as usual but the mirror is behind a leaf cutter ant house. So when you look in the mirror the ants are in front of you. I could not resist a photo.

Drenthe project life week 4

For this LO I used seven project life cards and placed them in a pattern across the page with a 3x4 photo in the mix too. I round the corners so it fitted with the cards. Three of the cards have added embellishments, one has the title and another the journalling

face paint project life week 2

I am trying to use up some of my Project Life cards and mini card papers because I am very unlikely to actually have time for a whole project life album. This LO uses three cards with a cut down picture of Nancy in her face paint

share the umbrella

This LO is for the latest challenge at Scrap it With a Song. This week it is Freiens by Aura Dione. I chose the line"sharing a raincoat in the wind" as my inspiration. I used a photo of two of my children sharing an umbrella in the rain- as close as I could get to sharing a rain coat in the wind. Nancy is wearing a rain coat as well to tie in with the lyric. This month the design team are all using digital images on our LOs as well. I used the little bear with a heart which I printed into coloured paper and then stuck onto foam tape.

BandQ chaos

This LO is for the sketch challenge at Sarah's Cards this month. Its a very simple sketch with lots of space which I love. I matted an instagram photo onto a Project life card- I love the cards but have not yet managed to project life my life- instead I use them on normal LOS but I do intend to try and use the technique for Journal My Christmas this Year.

the photo shows Arthur pushing Nancy on a trolley through the ailses of B and Q when we went yo buy a new toilet- such an exciting life I lead.
