Project Life: June 2014

This spread covers the beginning of June....lots of lazy mornings, play time, dance recitals and backyard picnics.

I used a variety of papers, cards and embellishments from the Gossamer Blue July kits.  I used several of the Crate Paper Open Road playing cards because I just love them so much, as well as several journaling cards designed by Peppermint Granberg.

Keeping with my "simple is easier" method for this Summer, I added quick journaling throughout my spread and occasionally on my photos.  There aren't a whole of words here, but I feel the pictures tell the "story" and I am super happy with that!

I cannot even begin to tell you how much of a difference it has made to print my photos the size of the pockets I'm using.  It takes all of the guesswork out of "what should I put in this pocket" and makes my spreads come together so quickly and easily!

I used the words/theme on the journaling cards to dictate my journaling since I really didn't have much else to add to the photos.  And I love that I just went with the flow and documented those thoughts rather than trying to make the cards match my photos.

Easy peasy!!
