Hello from New Jersey

Hello! It’s been quiet around here for a long time. I didn’t feel like I had much to say or share and so I went into hibernation. But now? Now I have lots of things to share, pictures to show you and recipes I’ve tried that I feel like I should share. And it’s all coming at you from our new home in New Jersey. Goodbye West Coast living and hello East Coast. I think once we get to know one another a bit better we’re going to be really good friends. Right now though my heart hurts and I miss Colorado terribly.

So for now while I get my bearings straight and get settled here is something that I have been loving!

One of my MOST FAVORITE new discoveries is the Project Life App by Becky Higgins. I’ve been feeling so far behind on my PL’ing this year because of all the packing and moving and things being in storage…which is where they still are. Then the new app got released and I’ve been a scrapping machine! I think that I am still a fan of doing everything by hand but when I’m this far behind I’ve found it super easy to catch up. I can’t wait to embellish all the digital pages though! Here are a few pages I’ve made using the app. Can’t wait to print them and get them in my album. Happy Friday!

Project Life–April Edition!

I’m on a roll (yay!) Pictured ordered for June & July, the month of April is finished and May is 1/4 of the way done. I’m having so much fun mixing and matching pieces that I have and creating layouts. Below is my April Cover Page, I used cards from a few different kits and some embellishments that I had at home. It was a crazy month here in Denver. We were packing up and getting ready to move, our friends moved back from Texas, we had a blizzard, it was 70˚and we got to sit on a patio and enjoy beer & pretzels at Lowry Beer Garden. We also went to a rugby game, blue man group and I threw a baby shower!  I purchased a bunch of embellishments from Archiver’s and some ladies in a Project Life Facebook group that I am in. I’m looking forward to trying out my new goodies! I can’t wait to get my pictures so that I can keep working. At this rate it seems almost possible that I could be caught up by the end of the month (gasp!) Then it will be on to creating pages for our travels this summer.
