You are loved.

 This is my second layout from the Websters Pages - Growing up girl paper kit (see previous post for what the kit contains).

This is the next layout to be added into my year album, documenting my families life through the year, alongside my project life layouts.

Documenting year on year can seem like an enormous task but really it's not. It is as difficult as you want to make it! It is a lovely project to look back on year on year and see what has changed or stayed the same!

Documenting the everyday is so important. If I look back at photographs of the past, I like looking at the details. The story behind the story. I like seeing how things have changed. How things are the same. I love the everyday.

I joined this range with some stickers from my stash and flairs, joined with some cord I had on my desk. Because the colours are muted, the range is easily combined with other ranges.

I stamped on the map print too in a pale grey ink that worked well with the vintagey paper feel.

The map print was ideal for the subject too... sending selfies to one of my besties in Australia!

Things that have happened lately.

Happy mothers day mum. One day early but I came. Since the events of last June the feelings I have for mum have changed. I am not sure if that's fair but it's how I feel right now. 
Maybe it's helped. I feel I have let go. I no longer need her back now. Not to say I wouldn't like that... but I don't need it. It's taken 13 years. 13 years. That's a long time. 

And then I love this. Scandal. Huck. Oh my. Hubba hubba.

And I've been contending with the worlds messiest desk for weeks now....

You & Me

Here is my first make for the Jones Crafts Design team! I got chosen to work with Websters Pages which is okay by me..... I love them! 

As you know I am an avid project lifer but can't do everything so my project life album is mixed with 12 x 12 layouts of important things I feel warrant a large layout. 
My project life album is usually mixed cards, I don't worry so much about using one range for a whole album... how could you do that?!! And I don't care about the mix match of page protectors/rounded or square corners etc... I just care about the memories! 

So here is one layout I worked on with the Websters Pages range - Growing up girl paper kit. It comes with 12 papers and 10 mini cards and 5 file folders.  The papers are beautiful and delicate and quiet vintagey.... not forgetting very floral and girlie!

They were perfect colours to match with these bright stickers and the instagram print I had of Emily and me in the cold!
