Today I want to share with you my March 2012 project life layouts.
(I am playing catch-up on my Project Life)
This month in our life was busy so I had four layouts.
I used a mix of the honey PL kit from Becky Higgins and an Echo Park collection called Springtime. I also used various letter stickers, die cuts, and Ali Edwards stamps.

On this layout we visited the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History so I had a lot of pictures. I created 4 - 4x6 collages to help me include all of the photos. I only used one journaling card for this layout so that I could include most of the pictures.

On this layout we left the museum and headed over to the Fort Worth Stock Yards. Once again, lots of photos and collages and only one journaling card.

The final layout for March included spring flowers, my spray painted mason jars, and time spent outdoors.
Here is my video for the spray painted mason jars.
I used my Silhouette Cameo for this month and made some frames and arrow cuts. These come in handy for the collages.
I am going to keep going and will have some more 2012 project life to share with you.
If you are behind with your project life, I am proof that you can catch up!!
See you next time.

I have some Project Life layouts to share with you today.
This layout covered new years, a sleepover for Emily, and my birthday . I also added in some pictures of me and Andy having a lunch picnic (in January!) and my winter wreath that I made.
January 2012 page 2.
This page was dedicated to Emily's 10th birthday. I used some Ali Edwards stamps and letter stickers.
Here is February 2012 page 1.
This layout covers us meeting our nephew for the first time who was born on 02.01.12. I also captured some fun shots of Emily, another handmade wreath for Emily's room, and a trip to Barnes and Nobles.
I used the Echo Park Be Mine collection kit for these two layouts.
February 2012 page 2.
For this layout I made three collages so that I could get in all of the pictures that I wanted to include without taking up too many pockets.
It feels so good to have these two months complete.
I am going to keep working hard to finish my 2012 album.
I will share more as I complete the layouts.
Thanks for looking and see you on the next post.

I finally brought out my Smash journal and added some new things to it.
I don't reach for this that often since I started doing Project Life. I still save things to add to this album and finally decided to spend a quiet Saturday afternoon adding some things to it.
For this layout, I used pictures from our recent trip to the library on a rainy Sunday afternoon. These pages were perfect since they already included a library tag and books. I saved the library receipt and printed these pictures from my phone. I captured the stack of books that Emily checked out and a picture of her looking at the books on the shelf.
I layered a couple of October Afternoon paper scraps, some washi tape and a stamp.
For this page, I kept is very simple because the notes speak for themselves. When my husband, Andy, cooks he will sometimes leave these fun notes on the door coming into the house from the garage. Emily and I will see them when pulling in and it always makes us laugh. These are definitely the types of things that I love to keep and a smash journal makes it perfect to keep these fun notes.
I used a Smash pad journal tag to record my journaling.
For this page, I wanted to play with some new stamps and inks that I have bought over the last month.
Sometimes it is just fun to get out your supplies and play.
I used a some new stamps from Prima and a new set from Stampin Up. The inks are also from Stampin Up.
I had fun making a mixed media type background.
I layered some October Afternoon paper and ephemera and some rub-on's and called it done.
Here is a YouTube video that I made if you would like to see a flip-through of the entire journal.
Thank you for looking!
See you on the next post.
