Project Life

This week’s Project Life covers the week of July 16- 22… which was the week of CHA!

AND also a weekend getaway with the family.  So basically, ALOT happened this week.

There were many “extras” to add this week which made the layout super fun to create.  At CHA we handed out pins (and pens!) to everyone who came to our booth.  I included these in my Project Life, along with my CHA badge.   I included some memorabilia of our culinary adventures — particularly the fact that we enjoyed our hotel’s Outback Steakhouse *almost* everyday. 🙂

As I mentioned, this week was full with CHA and a mini-vacation with my family.  So, how do I fit it all in you may ask?  I use inserts!!!

I knew I wanted to include photos of some friends we met at CHA, so I made a “layout” on our actual CHA catalogue.   It was the perfect solution because it also included some memorabilia I wanted to keep (the catalogue).

On the back-side of the catalogue I included an 8.5 x 11 layout I made about our weekend getaway to a Holiday themed amusement park.   It was the perfect way to include everything in the layout.

While at CHA our April Designer, Lexi Bridges gave me a pack of samples for the newest October Afternoon lines.  I used both Make it Merry and Midway in this week’s spread, and I have to say, they both look GREAT with the Elle’s Studio Sweet Life collection (which is available 8/27!)  I also had a chance to use the new “Snapshot Detail” stamp (also available 8/27)… this one is fabulous for Project Life!
