Project Life: Week 2

Two down and 50 to go!  Project Life Volume 1, that is!  I successfully completed Week 2 and really had fun doing it.  It all came together really quickly.  I kind of find each little slot is its own little layout and they are pretty simple and fast to do.  Now that I have a system....although who week the old system may not work!

I do need to learn a better way to photograph through page inserts.  The glare, the glare, the glare.  I tried to elevate one end a bit to reduce the glare which helped a bit but the photos could use improvement.  And I don't want to take my things out of the inserts for photographing...that would probably be the best way but I'm not going to bother with that, I don't think!

Anyway, here we go...week 2...the left side:
A sweet photo of my little lady, Taylor with a little <heart> you done with an Ali Edwards brush that I converted to a cut file and cut with my Silhouette.  I love those hand drawn rectangles!
 A couple of pieces of coordinating ribbon stapled to just add a little something to an otherwise flat journaling box. 
 And the right side:
 A little cut out rectangle from the Silhouette Store with some burlap and a button on top.
 And this is a transparency from the O'Snap kit I purchased last year.  I will leave this unadorned and unbacked (apparently my own made up word) and next week will try and put a cute photo behind it so you can get a glimpse of it.
This was so much fun.  I'm pumped.  50 weeks to go... *sigh.....

Happy Crafting!
