Every{day} Life has begun

This year Nicole and I have decided to do a Project 52 instead of a project 365.  Gina Marie Huff at Weeds and wildflowers has made a new collection which will work perfectly for this project.  It is called Every{day} Life.   This year she is doing a collaboration with Cinzia Loosemore and it is fabulous.  I look forward to the new series.



Here are Nicole’s first 3 weeks.

Nicole's 2010 365-Photo-A-Day Project is Done

Nicole and I finished our joint effort. Her 2010 365 book is done.  It is surprising how well it worked, creating a 365 book while living 1/2 a continent to an ocean away from each other.  You just got to love the internet. Here are her book covers.  All we need is a final edit and off to the printers it will go.


Her back page is a list of the cities she was in each day during 2010.  Unbelievable!!


For the covers, I just used the Sweet & Simple Pages - March '10 - ¾ templates since they coordinated so well with the pages.


Happy scrapping.

365 at Jessica

Are you ready to start your 365 project for 2011?  Carina Garner at Jessica has started a 365 series, Design 365, with all sorts of goodies.  I used her DESIGN 365 - Calendar Masks  for this recap of my January 2010 page.  You can find it here.

Life on the Go

Nicole was in a different country every month last year.  Oftentimes, she was in more than one country each month.  The other day she told me that a common rule of thumb regarding jet lag is that it takes one day for each hour difference in time zones traveled to recuperate.  I figure she will catch up from 2010 jet lag some time next June. But then again, she will travel even more this year. Oh dear.

To make this page I made a very versatile template from Splendid Fiins at Jessica


The travel elements are from a darling kit by Cosmo Cricket. Joy Ride Candy Candy can be purchased at the Cosmo Cricket store at Jessica


Thanks for stopping by.
