Note to Self

Hi everyone!! 
As I've been doing strictly Project Life for 2.5 years now, I'm finding my "process" change.  I used to do our spreads on a weekly basis, but now that Neysa is older and is busy with school/dance/playing with friends, I was finding that our weeks were getting kind of repetitive and boring. :)  So, I've switched to a monthly spread.  I do specific events (dance competitions, holidays, a friend's birthday party, etc. for example) together, and then I usually have a few pages of random stuff that we've done throughout the month that's notable, but not necessarily belonging to anything specific.
My very favorite part of doing it monthly is going back through my Momento app, and doing screen shot prints of the funny (or sometimes not so funny.) things that have happened that or that Neysa has said that I've posted in Instagram or Facebook.  Using the Design F protector, I cut them down to 3x4 squares and scrapbook them just as I would a picture.  I love looking back (especially since it's now the end of August and today's project is from April....) and re-living those moments. 
That's what it's all about, right??
Here's April 2015:
I am TOTALLY diggin' the flower card with the random petals stitched with Cape Cod Twine!
Timehop makes for some fun screen shots as well. :) 
I did another twine frame around the bottom right picture.  I really love how it gives it some dimension.
These doilies are FABULOUS for adding even more texture/depth to your basic cards. 

I'll be back September 6th with my very first PlanNerd post!  I'm pretty excited for that. :)
xoxo, Amber

Snorkle & Snuba

Happy Friday, friends!!
I'm up today on the Timeless Twine/Bella Creationz blog with a new PL spread from our trip to Hawaii last September.
I can't believe it's already been a year...  For those who don't know, Snuba is a mix between snorkeling and scuba diving.  You're tethered to a raft that carries the oxygen for you instead of in tanks on your back.  I wasn't able to breathe w/the respirators so I couldn't do it, but my husband was able to and had a BLAST!

I chose to keep this LO very simple as the pictures really speak for themselves.  The Cape Cod Twine was the perfect neutral with some color for this project. The banner was so fun to make!

I also used Days of the Week Journaling Cards, and the Hello Summer Stamp Set to add a few little pops of cute. :)
