Project Life Weeks 4, 5 & 6

I'm almost there!  I've been working feverishly to get caught up.  Just 10 days left and I'll be current.  Whoop.  Whoop.

Week 4:

The cute "a day in the life" die cut is a free download from scrapbook royalty Ali Edwards.

Week 5:
Stickers & embellishments:
THIS & THAT  by Lori Whitlock

I do want to share with you an idea to get more photos on your layout.  See that picture of Gracie playing in the snow (third from the left, bottom row)?  That is really 5 pictures grouped as one 4" x 6" image using Photoshop Elements (PSE) and a storyboard designed by the wildly talented Kerri Bradford.  Masking & clipping techniques are a bit tricky to learn and use (at least they were for me), but once you get the hang of it, you'll be tickled to be able to add so many more pictures of a single event (lord knows...I sure get tickled with it!).

Close up.
Week 6:

It is my vow to stay current!


  1. AWESOME pages!!! I have a question for you...I LOVE the quote you have at the top of your blog..would you mind if I used it for the front page of my PL book? I LOVE it! Your little dog is so cute and I love the snow pictures of him!! I also really like the pictures of the valentine cards and everyday things you included...awesome! can;t wait to see your next pages.

    1. Hello and welcome! You are certainly welcome to "borrow" Emerson's quote as did I. It's such a great quote, isn't it? Wish I'd said it. I'd be interested to see your creative take on it!

  2. Thanks for the quote, I always like to ask...
    I'm working on my title page tonight and hope to get it completed soon, I ran into a snag and now am diving into my stash of stuff to find my rub on butterlfies I wanted to include...I knew right where they were last week and now they decided to go misisng..ACK!!
