July Project 12

I have finally caught up on my Project 12 pages.  I even put together May (admittedly I haven't journaled yet!).  I will not bore you with a ton of pictures, but you can see them on my Picasa account. Each month a sketch is provided, and you are at your descretion to use it to create a 2 page layout for the month.  Here is July's sketch:

The key is to include somethings from through out the month...and journal!!!  It is a great exercise in writing for a purpose, and being concise (there never seems to be enough room).  I love my July layout, so this is the one I'll share.

I used the  Life's a Beach Cricut Cartridge for the Title, and "beach" embelishments.  The tickets are courtsey of the Caursol cartridge.  The georgous paper is Cosmo Cricut the Snorkel line. 

Here is my layout:

Top ten list update

I finally created the top ten words of summer Layout

I cut each of the photos and definitions into 3x3 inch squares.  The paper is from the Rustic stack (DCWV).  I cut the title at 1.25" with the Life's a beach font.  The definitions are distressed with wild honey, and tea dye.  I used gold pearl dust on them too.  I love it! I am considering it one of my best layouts.  The pictures do not do it justice, I have to figure out how to take better display pictures.

My "Uncle" Bernie and his wife had a tenth aniversy party yesterday (at our cabin in the woods). I took our new Olympus E3 camera to get some photos. I got lots of good ones, but really liked how this one turned out. I like how the boy in the middle is on the car, and the other two are standing. The band looks like they are all paying attention to each other, but the guitar player on the right is looking at the boys. It all just kind of happened, no set up. I blurred the edges a little for effect. I thought I'd share. Hope you like it.

In the last couple days I received phone calls from my mother and my husbands father. Both had lost one of their cousins. My poor father in laws cousin lost both her husband and sister on the same day. I had not sympathy cards on hand so I scraplifted this card to make some. They were very quick, and I liked the result. I used the DCWV luxury pack my secret Santa gave me last year. the ribbon is from Walmart, and the bkg is Kraft paper.  The sentiment on the inside is  the Happy memories text from Rubernecker.
Have a blessed weekend.
