Project 2012 : May 21-27

This time, last year.

A week of rare Swansea sunshine.

As I reminder, I am sharing pages that I was “current” on last year, before I started blogging. For 2012 I used the digital Clementine collection and more of the year is available here.

I really like how bright and sunny this page is, full of outdoor photos and fun. However, if you look closely, you may notice that they are all from one glorious, fun-filled Saturday. A whole layout from one day? Totally OK with me.

The photos from earlier that week fit right in—blooming flowers and pints outside. Summer days at their finest.

I also included a couple other small memories from the week. First of all, how can you not be amused that my library book was due in 7874? Somehow, I doubt they would honor that. I really like the look of the matching patterned paper with a strip of color on the bottom. I should do that again.

I also wanted to add a small reminder of the Egyptian (post Revolution) presidential elections. I spend a lot of time in Egypt and we have a lot of friends there, so this was kind of a big deal in our lives. Plus, I got to use a google doodle. I LOVE GOOGLE DOODLES. I believe there is 3 or 4 in my 2012 album, and that was limiting it to the ones I can’t live without. This is the only one on a 3×4 card, and I think I will definitely be repeating this as well. These make great 4×6 filler cards too, if you are looking to finish older weeks—the doodles are archived by date here.

I think that I have mentioned before that committing to a weekly PL has actually made my life more interesting, because I seek out more (free) community based things to do. The Olympic torch relay falls into this category. I grabbed a few friends and we sat out in the sun for a couple hours. That would be PL worthy in itself, of course, but it is fun that there is a little bit of history incorporated in. The journal card is from this set by Paislee Press. These are my go to cards when I have already used several kit cards on a page and don’t want to introduce more color/pattern craziness. The remember brush is (who else!) Ali Edwards.

The right hand page is dedicated to a birthday BBQ and Eurovision. Since starting PL in 2011, every album has had a Eurovision card—definitely part of my UK life.

My friend Ros lives in China now and I miss her lots. On the other hand, China would be an awesome place to go visit, so I can’t be too upset.

Something I have always enjoyed about scrapbooking is seeing how my style changes. When I started weekly PL in 2012, I very intentionally kept it simple because I wanted to stay on top of it. The purple dot card is very typical of PL 2012 style—cute card, typed writing, done. To be honest that is pretty much PL 2013 style too. But, having more time and found my groove, I do tend to embellish a bit more this year; some washi tape here, some stapled sequins there. I could add some embellishment here, but I won’t. It is done and I move on….

    I adore how you did the card for your library receipt – it looks great, and that’s such a fun memory to preserve. What a cool idea to include Google Doodles! I never would have thought of that, but it looks fantastic and is such a creative way to reference current events. It’s interesting (and wonderful) that PL has inspired you to seek out adventures. I think it has for me, as well, or at least sometimes I motivate myself to go do things by thinking about how much more interesting my photos will be that day. 🙂

      I can definitely relate to finding more interesting things to do! I really like the library receipt too—one of the nice things about blogging last years PL is that is reminding me of things that I want to copy from myself 🙂

    The torch relay and BBQ look like so much fun. I agree with you. My life seems to be more interesting now with Project Life. All of a sudden, I’m finding so many interesting things to do! :o)
