The proposal. It was spectacular. I loved every second of it, and I’m so glad I was able to photograph my future son-in-law proposing to my daughter in San Diego. I used Anna Aspnes’ Ocean Cove ArtPlay Palette, and this is when I officially switched over to her FotoInspired Templates in this year’s albums.
This week marks the beginning of our epic vacation to San Diego. It was an amazing trip, and I have soooo many layouts from our stay there. It was magical. I used Anna Apnes Beach or Ocean Cove ArtPlay Palettes on this week’s layouts. I can’t remember (oops) and I’m too lazy to pull it up in PS to look. Still using the standard Project Life templates here.
This week I used Anna Aspnes’ ArtPlay Obsession. I wanted to highlight my One Little Word prompts for March. I think this was the last set of prompts that I did for my year. But whatever. I’m not going to beat myself up about following rules, or forcing myself to do prompts in a class. The important thing is that I kept my word alive this year. Namaste certainly has become my way of life these days. A little too much so, I’m afraid. It’s crazy looking back on how little Brielle was this far back in the year!
I used Anna Aspnes “Home” Art Play Palette for this week’s layouts. I also used the standard Project Life Templates (with my own twist on the smaller squares). A lot of fun memories in this week, the best being to go with my future son-in-law to pick out my daughter’s engagement ring. That was a really cool experience. We were all in the know about her pending proposal, but she was completely clueless. It was awesome! I love using social media in my layouts as well. Especially with everyone all over the place these days.
This week’s Project Life pages features my daughter Chloe’s 15th birthday as well as Valentine’s day. It’s crazy to see what was going on in our lives back then. Jesse was still together with his girlfriend, Mady. They’ve long since broken up. That’s what life’s all about, though, right? We can’t have only the fantastic memories, some of them can be a bit painful to look at when we review the past. I try to include all of it when I’m documenting our Project Life.
I used Anna Aspnes’ ArtPlay Palette and was still using the traditional Project Life layouts early on in the year, along with some of my own personal tweaks.
Another one of Anna Aspnes’ great products over at O’Scraps: Art Play Palette “Radient” as well as Katie Pertiet’s calendar card. I had planned on using those more often, and somehow I didn’t. It makes for a lot of work to match the layouts I’m doing. I prefer other week embellishments that Katie has created over this one, although it looks great once I get it how I want it in my layout. Lots of fun with Gabbi’s birthday this week.
Another great Art Play Palette from Anna Aspnes: “Bask”. I love the bright, happy colors in this palette. It goes great with our tragic experience of the superbowl this past year with the Broncos pathetic loss. My son and daughter-in-law had their photos in Times Square’s “Make Love, Not War” campaign. That was pretty cool. Brielle is growing like a weed. More fun in our crazy lives!
