drum roll please . . . i'm doing project life!
but you know i do so love elise blaha cripe. and her seafoam edition is so pretty. i contemplated buying it to scrapbook with, but you get oh so many cards and i couldn't imagine using them all. maybe just the extra paper pack then? i was living in pl purchasing limbo. but then a little birdie gifted me with the set and a selection of 12x12 slotted pages and well, it's kinda funny actually, but i appear to be doing it. i just may have entered the ranks of the project lifers. what is the difference this go round? maybe the coordinated set gave me a jumping off point so it was less intimidating to get started? possibly size does matter? maybe i just needed a lesson in perseverance? who knows! but i think i might actually like it. i think i might actually do it. for real. i'll keep you posted.
details on my cover page: all three photos are instagram (i'm dorissander if you want to look me up). the three aqua cards are from elise's seafoam core kit. the arrow (really an upside down house with the chimney cut off), heart, and house are maya road from my december jbs mercantile artisan add-on. they're all embossed with ac zing embossing powders. i was embossing happy that day. the gold dotted vellum is dear lizzy. that picture behind it is the one that is in that spot when you open the album to the first spread. i was going to leave the window clear to see through it, but i didn't like how the flip side looked, so i double printed the photo and put it in both spots. cheater! the cutie paper bottom left is amy tan. the little stickers (cosmo cricket) by the mailbox read, "live in a way to make happy memories." oh! and how cool is it that my new house number is 1302 and the year is 2013?! way!
