Project Life Week 7

This week was always going to be a bit of a challenge. I had my gallbladder out on Valentine’s Day which foiled any notions of going out to dinner, taking lots of photos, and using the Love theme kit this week. I didn’t have a lot of photos to work with, but added in some quote cards,  and cards from a friend (which were conveniently on PL cardstock) to fill it out.


The other big difference with this layout, is that I used a pad of paper and made my own cards. The paper is Hello Again from Carta Bella which happened to coordinate perfectly with some embellishments that Essie sent me. The quote card is from Elise Blaha and the love the journey came from The 36th Avenue. I felt the adventure quote was fitting given my surgery that week. I’ve blurred out my friend as I didn’t think she’d want her photo plastered over the internet.


I’ve also blurred out my wounds and hospital number. I decided to type my journal cards this week as I had a lot to say. Beneath the ‘I want to remember this’ card is four sides of journaling about my surgery. That card was a freebie from Polly Scrap Kits blog. I managed to squeeze in a Love theme card. Looking at this layout now I remember that I intended to use some of my bird washi on the journal cards to tie in with the card from Griffin.
