Project Life Overload (Weeks 15,16,17)

Happy Friday people!

 It's another beautiful rainy day here in Perth...I love the rain so much! It means I don't have to make excuses to myself for spending the day inside, drinking tea, NOT doing the washing  and getting my craft on :)

I'm having a bit of a Project Life-fest today, after printing off three weeks worth of photos during the week. If there was ever any proof needed for how fast time is flying, then this is it. Three weeks? NO WAY! I've just included the highlights...hope you don't mind :)

Love this photo...such a great reminder of how much my boy is growing (like he doesn't remind me almost daily!)

Week 15 is not my favourite. I've used Cosmo Cricket Circa 1934 papers and embellishments as the base, and they are not my usual colour palette. That being said, though...I love having such a great variety of papers in this album. It keeps me interested (and I am very easily distracted!)

Week 16 is bright! I've used Echo Park Little Girl Collection Pack as a base this time...this seems to be how I'm going to roll with Project Life...pick a paper collection and use it as the basis for my week. I'd like to be using all my bits and bobs, but the honest truth is that I have LOTS of paper collections, and not a lot of time to be searching for matching embellishments.

 Week 17 I went for white minimalist :) which is a look that I LOVE.

Week 17 was a pretty crappy week for me. It's kinda weird that it was, because I had lots of reasons to be happy, but just couldn't seem to find my happy place. Some weeks are like that, I guess :)  

The bit I love most from this weeks spread...

I found this quote in a Sussan catalogue that came in my letterbox, and immediately cut it out. Inspiration really is everywhere :)

If you've made it this far...thanks for reading!
