I did it! I started the project life program by Becky Higgins. I am going to use her #projectlifeapp to document a year in the life of my family. The first page is the most important. It is the title page and shows what we are all about in this family. Luckily I had the perfect photo to show my crazy family. It was a photo from the KISS concert in 2010. It was a time of starting over for our family and so that picture is appropriate for this page.

I used to be an avid scrapbooker. My daughter who is 13 now had about 10 scrapbooks before she was even 10. I bought every little gadget, gizmo, embellishment, paper, etc that was out there and the in thing at the time. Needless to say I was always broke from the amount of money I spent. About 3 years ago I got the cardmaking and stamping bug and decided no more scrapbooks. I had all the supplies I needed but then decided about a year ago that I wanted to advance further and use Copics etc to make my stamped images pop.. Well I weighted my options and went with the Spectrum Noir Markers and then pencil sets. I have all and I am in love with both, but I find myself using the pencils more often then not. Well I have heard and seen all this mumbo jumbo on Project Life and wondered what it was all about... Well it was a system that I liked but had no desire to sink money into. I have paper coming out of my ears as well as embellishments etc, and a QK SIlhouette that allows for die cutting etc, so I felt investing the money into this new system was way too much on my tiny little crafting budget. Well I was signed up for the Becky Higgins page etc on Facebook as well as her blog and low and behold... Project life iphone app! Just up my alley. The minute I downloaded it and started to play I was addicted. I ordered a few of the extra sets of layouts and cards and have managed to start a book of me which when done I will print out and place in an 8x8 album. Now that I have my BOM in mind and started I am looking in to the whole project life idea. I haven't taken pictures on my digital camera in forever. I tend to use my iphone more, but I am heading to Orlando Florida in March for a much needed vacation with friends and I plan on taking my camera with me. Between my phone and my camera and my friends I imagine that I will have an album done by the end of the trip. Here are just a few pages that I have done using the Project Life App by Becky Higgins......
Title Page Book of Me.
Birth page Book of Me
School page Book of Me
I know the android version is not out yet, but if you have an Iphone and want to start doing this then now is the time. Without this little app, I would still be sitting here thinking about that Book of Me like I have been for about 10 years now.

I haven't wanted to scrapbook in a very long time. The last one I did was for the KISS concert we took my then 9 year old daughter to four years ago. In looking forward to getting back into it once more and I am hoping that my Spring trip to Universal Studios will get me back into it.

From the moment I saw this digital stamp from The Stamping Chef I knew exactly who this was for. My good friend John's birthday is coming up in October and we have a little joke between us concerning 50 Shades of Grey. When I saw this stamp I ordered it right away and practiced up some colouring. This image I used the Spectrum Noir Coloured Pencils. There are 5 sets in varying shades so highlites and lowlites are easily achieved and they blend well together or over the Spectrum Noir markers. I didn't want to place the uncensored image on here because I am entering it in the Stampin Chef's challenge on their blog. The name of this image is 50 Shades Of Smexy.
Black Cardstock: Bazzill Basics
Satin cardstock: DCWV
Satin Ribbons: Unknown from stash
Colouring: Spectrum Noir Blendable Pencils
