Project Life | Week One

Did I mention that I love working with the paper kit? LOVE! I'm keeping January's pages very light & summery, since it IS summer here. Blues and greens are the colours I go for right now, and this is the Turqoise kit after all!

I'm still waiting for a date stamp to fill in the dates. The "start here" was cut from "Circa 1934 Borders" patterned paper by Cosmo Cricket. The half circle (far right, middle row), was cut from the paper that comes with the kit. I wasn't planning on getting the paper, but it was going to come with the PL kit. When the full kit wasn't available, my husband accidently still ordered the paperpack. But I'm starting to see that the paper might be handy...I also used it to extend the balloon photo that was printed too small by the printers.

"Summer" word-art is a freebie from Karla Dudley. The black "PhotographyFrames" was a digital freebie from Joanne Brisebois.

Just a collage of some close-ups. Since my digital album last year didn't really have any embellishments, mostly just words & photo's, I'm still quite focussed on photo's. That might or might not change during this project. At the moment I defnitely have more photo's than pockets!
"Flourish" is my one little word (Ali Edwards inspired) for the year. With that I quoted Isaih 54:10.

"Father, You never change, Your love for me always remains the same. The mountains may move and the hills dissapear, but even then Your faithful love for me will remain. Your covenant of blessing will never be broken. In you I relax, in You I am safe, in You I am free to blossom into all You have planned for me! I become complete."


  1. The scripture from Isaiah is beautiful. It couples with your one little word, flourish, quite perfectly. The font you chose for flourish is also a perfect fit.

    Total side note: love the close up of presumably your shoes.

    Going to follow because I look forward to seeing more pages.

  2. I'm visiting from the Project Life Tuesday link up. Your layouts are just beautiful! Since I live in the U.S. everything here is very wintery and it was so refreshing to see your beautiful summer layouts! I love the picture of the smile balloon and your mini calendar is a great addition!
