#myselfiescrapbook in two versions

For #myselfiescrapbook version 1, my Heidi Swapp Memory Planner, Studio Calico monthly kit leftovers, and Artful Leigh Creative Etsy Shop card set called "Artsy Girl" 

I am loving this #myselfiescrapbook idea, that was started by Jennifer Lake @ SunlightandAir and Julie Gagen @ See their websites for more info. Free downloads from Jennifer's site are provided by Little Lamm Co. and Alex Hunter Designs, thanks girls! 

I have had this creative idea floating around in my head for awhile. I had been thinking, for about the last six months, on how to incorporate my style, pocket page card ideas, and get more me, on my family's pages. For the last three years I have done Project Life, and wow has it ever been a blessing. All the good things I have to be thankful for are so much more apparent when I keep up with my albums. BUT I usually have a stack of photos of me left over each week, that didn't make it into the album, simply to get more family memories in. My kids are about to leave the nest and I can see I need to soak up every memory, and record, for the days when they no longer live with me! So the idea came to me to start digitally producing my own cards, and maybe they could help some other girls get more of them in their family albums. 

Along came #myselfiescrapbook and I was like "PERF!" Two birds, one stone, eh? 

So why the two versions, you ask? Oh well, I had already planned to use the Heidi Swapp planner for "My" album, to record my writing, Bible Studies, friend pics, all the things that got left out of the family book. 

Cards: Artful Leigh Creative,  embellishments:Studio Calico 

Then to add #myselfiescrapbook to the main family album, I chose to use Becky Higgins 6x12 page protectors as inserts. I already have lots of them in stock, and I like the size, it's just right! This is an example of a few of the cards I designed and of course I had to do an Artful set first, :)

Thanks for joining me today!
