Project 52 - Week 2 My Memories

Woo Hoo! I am writing this after attending the My Memories Workshop (9 pm to Midnight EST.)  I'm glad I don't live in the Eastern time zone any more. Otherwise, this post would be late! As it is, I completely forgot about taking my picture and scrambled to get one. It actually turned out pretty well. One of the topics was using page builder templates and designer templates. I used a page builder template sampler for today's photo. And I did not know you could change the background papers in the designer templates. I'm going to have to give that a try! I used the Candy Fairway and the Princess Diva packs just for something different.

Thanks Lisa J. for a very informative workshop!

Project 52-1 My Memories

I've completed the first week of Project 52. Whew! Granted, I don't always remember to take a picture, but its getting a little better.

Today's page kind of encompasses what I've been working on. The sheets at the top right are census sheets. The genealogist in me is in a scramble to get them entered into my database and everything up-to-date BEFORE the 1940 census is released. As you can see, I can and do multitask!

Project 52-1 My Memories

I have lots of ideas for photos, if only I could remember them, or remember to take the picture at least. This picture was taken while it was still light enough to get a picture of the dusting of snow. There's a bit more now, and if I don't see any more this year, I won't be sad. There is sure a huge different between having a yearly average of 40 inches versus an average of 8 inches. This snowfall will close schools for Friday. If you saw some of the roads the buses travel, you would understand. I don't like driving them in nice sunny weather!

I used Candy Fairway Pack (Pepmint) a freebie in the My Memories store. The shape is a little more involved than what you see, and is filled with another Candy Fairway paper. The snowflakes are from Winter Dreams.

Project 52-1 My Memories - Bye Tweety!

It's a sad day when I can no longer get the size refills for my little address book. It's time to replace it.

Project 52 - Day 4 - My Memories

This is actually beginning to be fun. I've been waiting for my DH to pull out his iPad so I could get a picture of him with it. He's a very low tech kind of guy, but had been eying the iPad for a few months.  He bought it the day after Christmas. And he tries new stuff on it.

The page was done with the Refresh mini kit by The Brown Owl that I picked up on the January Blog Train.

Project 52- day 3!

Okay, three days into this and I am questioning my photo subjects. Ah well.

Younger daughter blew into town yesterday for a hair appointment today. She had several inches chopped off . That about says it all!  I took pieces of a couple kits from the January Blog Train "Refresh."

Speed Scrap Sunday - My Memories

This is from yesterday's speed scrap over at the My Memories Facebook page! I missed last week's and even forgot to look for the directions. Older pictures are a little closer to hand these days.

Project 52 - Day 2 - My Memories

Day 2 of Project 52 - I almost forgot to take my picture. The paper and embellishments are from Princess Diva. The word art was done by me and I used the lace pattern from the left.  Kind of silly, but fun.
