Time for Catch Up! -Project Life:Thursday (ok Friday) & Winner & Another Giveaway..

Hello my Blogger Friends!

So pretty looking out there into my New York window today although it is freezing at least there is no snow falling for right now even though yes you guessed it. MORE snow/ice/slush  tomorrow but for today I will enjoy the sunshine!

I am feeling awesome today so much so I ran me a 5K on the treadmill and actually beat my time I had before!  So I guess the meds are doing its job. For today I will have 2 posts this is my Project Life post and later on I will post some layouts I worked on for some challenges that were on Studio Calico.

So lets get started. For my layout this week. I was inspired by 2 things. The first was Ali Edwards (LOVE her) as she shared a way of documenting her thoughts in her album and so I ran and purchased what I needed here. 

The second thing that inspired me was a Movie I watched. My friends & Family giggle at me because I love Bollywood movies I LOOOVE then I could watch them all day long if I could! Ha.. This one that I saw was called : We Are Family . Lets just say it had me in tears,laughing and just oh wow.. :A Bit about the movie :

A divorced mother of three children who adore her, Maya (Kajol) runs a well-organized and happy household -- that is, until her former husband (Arjun Rampal) brings his new career-oriented girlfriend, Shreya (Kareena Kapoor), into the picture. When an unforeseen turn of events forces the two women to live under the same roof, Maya must make some unconventional choices for her family in this Bollywood tale directed by Sidharth Malhotra

There is a twist in this story but you'll have to watch so you can see what I meant anyway. After watching it I once said Lord thank you for my family & just felt so blessed to have my little circle it is so beautiful to me and so I wanted to capture that on this page :

 FYI : Layout size is 8 1/2 x11 

As you can see I just used some strips of patterned paper to create my accents I used my punches and dies in order to create this background (yes still using my scraps from my Studio Calico) I am so happy I have used EVERY little bit of it Ha.. Now I only have a few quarter or less of pages left which I plan to use on cards.

For the journal I used again my Hero arts Envelope Patterns I LOOOVE this stamp so much! ha.. Then I took my Papertrey Ink- Dot Basic and added a touch of dots. I like the unique background it created.

I add finished the page but felt as it was too plan that is when I started to add the embellishments at the end of each strip. Using my little goodies I've been stashing I let them be free and do what they were meant to be used creations Ha.. So how about you are you using those goodies that you have been stashing?

COME on trust me it feels good to use them sure it makes your hands shake a bit but once you put them in place guess what you will get the BIGGEST Smile ever.. come try it..
