Project Life Week 12 (April LPS Colour Challenge)

Today is the day I can finally reveal my Week 12 of Project Life!!


I've had this layout ready to go since last week and have been eager to share it with you, BUT I had to wait until today as I have made it for this months Colour Challenge over at Life. Paper. Scrapbook.

The winner of this months challenge will receive a place in the Mix it up with Amy Tan Workshop
Details from the Two Peas in a Bucket WEBSITE
Globetrotting fashion and scrapbook designer Amy Tan not only loves to mix up the undertakings of her never-boring career and the scenery through her lens, but her scrapbook pages and projects! In this mini workshop, Amy will teach you how to keep your creativity fresh and exciting by mixing up your supplies, photos and projects. With her eclectic and colorful style, mixer-upper-expert Amy will equip you with:

• 3 Chapters showcasing 25+ layouts
• 30 Mix formulas for your pages and photos
• 25+ minutes of video including tutorials and insights from Amy
• 48 helpful PDF pages that include tips and an in-depth look at each layout and project.
• Bonus cut files, a project planner worksheet + more!

Amy's carefree and relaxed approach to creating is contagious; you'll feel as though you're scrapbooking right alongside with her in her living room (with her beloved Buster and Bamboo at your feet!). Create perfectly-embellished layouts you love when you use Amy’s tips for mixing up your supplies. Give your layouts an unexpected twist when you vary the photos you capture. And finally, prevent creative ruts by changing up the projects you tackle. Follow Amy Tan’s lead and get ready to mix it up! 

Now onto my layout...
This was the colour palette we were given to use

And the layout I've created :)

I have used the April kit from A Piece of Cake designs for this layout. The colour combo of papers and embellishments worked well for this Challenge.

 Ive gone back to basics with this weeks layout using Design A page protectors. Weeks flow better this way for me, so I think I will stick to this and use the many other designs for extra inserts between the weekly pages. As usual we had a pretty quiet week, so most photos are of Leila! Crazy Hair which needed a cut, and nap times are still in force since their return recently! The Keep Calm quote was from somewhere I can't remember! Would love a notes section on the iPad that was attached to photos so I could remember where I screen shot things from!

LOVING this kit and all the extras it contained. The journalling cards are all pretty cool. So hard to choose which ones I wanted to use!
It was a busy end to the week with work on a weekend.. doesn't happen often for men but was a nice change.  There is a midweek insert to add in - once I finish it - that documents Leila's first haircut!!! She doesn't really have that much hair to warrant a proper cut, but it was getting so messy that it needed a tidy up! Oh and the ring was a spur of the moment, caught my eye, must try that on type of moment. No questions have been asked as yet lol

I didn't really add much else from my stash other than the black SMASH tape, Red alphas, Wood veneer arrows & heart, a Cherry Flair from A piece of Cake designs and the COFFEE DATE stamp from Give a Girl a... 

Head on over to the Life. Paper. Scrapbook blog to see what the other talented ladies have created! You won't be disappointed.

Project Life is a concept designed by Becky Higgins. It is a range that works anyway you want it to. You don't have to embellish your layouts or use any extra products like I do. You can easily record an album full of memories with just a Core Kit, bulk pack of page protectors and a 12x12 Album. I purchase all my core products from Craft House - Exclusive stockist for Australia and New Zealand.
