So I'm Going to Try Something Rather New For Me. . .
For the last month or so, life was increasingly busy, and all around crazy. As a result, I seem to have fallen behind, like way behind, on my Project Life. I even considered just giving up on it, as I'm sure many who do PL have done in the past. However, seeing as how I just started it at the beginning of April, that seemed like the easy way out. It wasn't that I found the process too daunting or that I didn't have enough pictures, It's just that for the month of June all my pictures seemed to be lost in the mix somehow. I actually blame the fact that I got a new phone as the main reason I have very little to show for June. I went from an iPhone 4 to a Galaxy S4, and while I love it so much better than my iPhone, it took some time to learn how to operate a phone that runs completely different than my iPhone did. After thinking about it (a lot!), I came to the conclusion that I really do like everything about project life. I still create traditional 12x12 layouts, and don't think I'll ever give that up, but doing project life is something completely different to me - it's like the Cliff Notes version of our lives. So, because I like the process, the creating and the end product of project life, I've decided to stick with it. As for now, I've picked it back up starting in July, as well as trying to round up as many pictures as I can find for the month of June. Seeing as how there are onlyThis particular week was a challenge because, although it may not look like it, it was light on the pictures. When this happens, it's difficult for me to complete the spread because I have a difficult time using filler cards. I have no idea what the mental block is for me, but it just happens that way. For the filler pocket with the quote, I actually dug out something very old from my stash. I'm not sure who made it, but the quote came in a booklet. Each booklet is themed, and all the quotes are printed on vellum. I'm sure exactly how old it is, but I'd guess somewhere between 8-10 years old. So, I was really proud of myself for using it. :-) Here's a closer look at the left side of the page. . .
