Project 12 and the Throwdown

Good Monday morning, all! Our Monday morning is being brought to us by a snow storm which will accumulate 6 inches or so by the day's end. It's weird how some schools canceled and, of course, ours didn't. I really wonder what determines whether or not they should cancel...hmmm?

Anywho, just wanted to share a couple projects I finished this past week. The first is a double page layout for the Project 12 . Click on the link and you can read more about it. It will be fun to do this as I STUNK at keeping up with Project 365 last year. I feel apart around late May, early June, and just couldn't force myself to do it again. I still don't know what I'm going to do with the rest of the This is much easier and I'm liking that a Becky Fleck sketch is provided each month. I am going to just base mine on a monthly theme showcasing events/moments that I want to recall for the specific month.

Then I decided to help facilitate the use of my ever-growing scrap supplies by entering in to Memorable Seasons Scrapbook Throwdown. Each week a new "recipe" will be posted so we can "cook up" our I like this analogy to Bobby Flay as he's one of my faves on Food Network. Week one's challenge was the Wedding Cake challenge. We had to use something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue.
So this is what I came up with although excuse the bad picture because I didn't take it until late yesterday evening and no matter what I couldn't get the coloring right. I will try to take another one today if gets any brighter.

Something Old: 12 yr. old wedding pictures
Something New: Prima flower that I colored with Shimmerz Bed of Roses spritz
Something Borrowed: Pink Paislee sketch
Something Blue: Pink Paislee paper and the ribbon

That's about all I accomplished...oh, almost forgot that I did finish up my nephew's baby book that I started last year. I gave it to my sister at her baby shower and promised her pages for 3, 6, 9 and 12 months. Well, I can finally check that off of my to-do list because it's done! All I want to do before I hand them over to her to be placed in the book is add pictures for 3, 6, and 9 months as he's already that old....and already starting to WALK!! Can you believe it??? I can't!
Well off to start my day and figure out something for dinner. Wishing you all a fabulous one filled with lots of productivity! :D
