Jeaunes is Thankful for this Beautiful Life!

Friday, March 21, 2014


Hi there ladies, I really hope everyone in the Northern hemisphere is having an awesome spring and are excited for the summer!  Here in South Africa, we have really been having some crappy weather with LOTS of rain!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But enough about the weather, today I am here to share another two single Project Life inspired pages with you!  The pictures were take on the same day, but some were taken in the morning and the rest were taken in the afternoon, after Jonathan was bathed and changed.

Here is the first page, the right hand side.

These pictures were taken in the afternoon and early evening, after we bathed Jonathan and changed him into this blue and white outfit.  

I included a Project Life card here which I embellished with a felt heart cut from my Cuttlebug, some staples, buttons and bling.

The journalling on this card reads:
"Thursday - our last day in hospital.  After your bath that morning, mommy dressed you in the blue & white babygrow.  Even though it was "newborn" size it still seemed too big for you.  these were some of the first pictures mommy took of you being awake."

I used bits and pieces of the Vintage collection from Simple Stories to finish the page off with.
And now on to the second page!!!!!!!!!

This one is so far my favourite and I had tons of fun with this page!!!!!!!!!!

So, dear Mr Tim Holtz (huge fan over!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) was in South Africa during March and I was lucky enough to be able to attend his class.......  One of the awesome things he bought us and that we worked with was his brand new 1" distressing ink pads, and oh my word, they are stunning!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  So what did I do when I got home, you guessed it, used the mini distressing ink pads!!!!!!!!!!! 

I covered cardstock with old book paper, and did some stencil work with Tim Holtz distress ink on it.   Once this was done, I included some chipboard elements, a rub-on and some die-cuts I had lying around.  

For this card, I cut a piece from the Echo Park Fall collections, added some die-cuts and stitching.  

So that concludes my Project Life pages for this week!  I hope you enjoyed them!  But wait, I am not done...........................
