Project 52 2013: January 2

Project 52 2013: January 2

Well, doing a double-page a month seems to be taking me as long to do as four double-pages did. But, at least I got it posted before February ended, right?

For this page I used:
SNU Embellishment Templates: 8.5x11 Pocket Life 6301
STI Pocket Life: New Year
SNU Pocket Life: Snapshot Journal Cards
KSC New Beginnings Zip Kit
VRA Basic Brights Paper (retired)
and my own photos.

Journaling reads:
"Life quiets down, adjusting to Mom gone, lots to take care of... Time with Terry & Ali... Mass for Mom... Hard Yoga work & dizzed... Winter Watercolor class... Learning to make manicotti... Dear friend Conkie, family & friends...
Sad view of shore & devastation... Two year cancer diagnosis anniversary... Art class with Margie... June's First Anniversary. Dinner with all the girls... Terry has surgery & my first "awake" stitches... Skyping & more skyping... Snow & bitter cold..."

    I love the way you made it look almost like a quilt! Great LO!
    I love your template and the sunny bg color! Your photos and journaling are always great. I love your title, too!
    First.....I'm so glad the two year cancer diagnosis has passed, Marilyn and I know how scrapping about it helps you cope with that awful thing. LOVE the stitching around your photos - it just makes them pop so beautifully. What terrible devastation - my heart goes out to everyone living through the clean up and the re-start of their lives. Di is right - your layout does resemble a quilt and I am really liking the new format! I was getting worried if you were going to make posting before the end of February, but you did it! You go girl! I know how much you miss your Mom, my friend and I'm glad to see you scrapping about those feelings - she's smiling down at you I know and loving that you are remembering her.
    Wonderful two pages Marilyn, you are always so good at making your photos 'talk' to us... I love matching up your words and your pics... I know it is hard adjusting to a new life now where you get to focus on you so I especially enjoyed seeing all the little things that highlight your days now :-) the new Pocket Life pages are wonderfully put to use this way, looking forward to seeing your year :-)
    I agree with what the other's are saying. Your layouts are always interesting!
    Wonderful phots and I love all of the little embellishments. Perfect touches.
    Great colors and embellies
    Your second page of the spread is just as fanatics at the first. Popping colours, photos and nice placement of embellishments for finishing touches.
    So glad you are jumping in to the project too!
