Embrace the Everyday


I’m including as part of my project life journey a series of layouts, under then heading Embrace the Everyday. Its literally going to be photos of our everyday goings on where journaling isn’t always needed.  Not only will it be fun to look back on, but hey, I get to play with pretty paper, so that can’t be bad.
The layout I want to share with you, is actually a page from my filofax! … I know, not the most exciting thing in the world. But I love my filofaxes, I'm addicted; I have one in my handbag, and this one, which is the one I keep at home; it’s the one that I write my daily to do lists, birthdays, menu plans, shopping lists etc.

The layout was based on this sketch

 

As you can see I kept pretty much true to the sketch. The title was cut on my trusty silhouette, as was the bunting - I don't think a day goes by without me cutting something on the machine. I know it's certainly helping to make me feel more creative.

I have a head full of creative ideas swimming around me at the moment, and that’s in no small part thanks to Julie Kirks, blogging series. I still have posts to catch up on, but it’s amazing, do check it out, and although she's reached her target for her chosen charity (which I think is the one of the best charitys going) :) ...  she can always use more money for them.  So do pop by and look, you won't regret it.

  3. A great idea for a page! I've pinned it for future use if that's ok?! I have lists, notebooks, diarys, menu plans to run my everyday life ... but not a filofax!!

  12. What a super LO Sandra and that background was perfect for the subject.

    Thanks for the comment on my post about e-readers...nothing will ever convince me that they should 'replace' books - it is lovely to flick though a book and just the process of turning a page has something about it...but they are convenient for travelling (there's no way I would carry 2 large paperbacks to and from work LOL).

    Look forward to seeing the photos of hand over of the album.

  14. I absolutely LOVE this page Sandra. The colours, your background paper, everything about it :) Well done! You were asking about all the 52 card challenges. Here is the link so you can see them all; http://koolkittymusings.typepad.com/kool_kitty_musings/52-card-challenge/
    Iron Man 3 was great btw - would thoroughly recommend it!

  15. I thought you must have had a Silhouette! I've seen a lot of wonderful titles around lately, and your layout is the one that pushed me over the edge - I have now sold my Cricut, nearly half of my cartridges and I will get a Silhouette when we are settled in Aus with some change to spare! This is a brilliant page - just love, love love it!
