Good Memories

Other than slowly working on Project Me, I have been working on other projects. I still have to start my scrapbook of my summer vacation 2012. I think the summer vacation album will be the last 8x8 album I will make for myself. They are a lot easier to do, but there is is not enough room for the details I want to add.

These Project Life photo pockets are meant to be easy, but for some reason I take forever to fill them. There is great inspiration online; I never run out of ideas. My favorite part of this is the spread of the golden gate bridge in the middle of the page.

Reminiscing

Here is another one of my favorites. For Mike's birthday this past year, Brian planned a rock climbing trip which I blogged about on Michael Sarshad's Birthday Celebration. It was super fun. I like this layout because I tired to have it resemble the rock climbing wall. Thanks to Diana, I have a picture of Martin and me at the top of the wall. Good memories.

Recent Birthdays

There were a couple of birthdays this May. My Godsister and Martin's Mom. The two cards below are the ones I made for them. I can make two cards from a 12x12 pattern page. It worked out well that I made one birthday card and one graduation card for each pattern. The designs do not overlap. I ended up using the pink embossing powder on all four but it worked will with the patterns and designs. 



There was a birthday in April, that I had not gotten to share. It was a card for my former Chinese School Principal. I do not think I blogged about the brunch I had with my old classmates, but it was fun catching up with everyone.

New Album in Gallery


Quick teaser on a new album I recently finished for my Godfather. He requested an album for his father's 80th birthday. I was very excited to so this because it allowed me to do something different than 'about me' pages. These pictures were also all scanned, so I was pleasantly pleased with the quality of the photos. I even received positive feedback from the party attendees.  You can see the full album in my galleries section.

Graduation Congratulations

Lots of my friends are graduating this year. That list includes myself even though I consider my time has past. The ceremony was last week so I guess it did not feel official until now. The first card below I made for my former roommate Roxi. She just finished Pharmacy School - clearly she is the smart one. The second and third one was for my cousin Joyce who just received her Bachelor Degree in Communications. I had to make one for my Mom to give to Joyce too.

15 More Months

It is official; Martin will be staying for another 15 months. There is lots to do before he starts work, but I am sure we will be able to take care of it all. I am just excited to create more great memories with him like the one below. I am selecting a few of my favorite layouts from a recent album I made. I really like the flocked pattern paper. Sometimes, it is difficult to work with brown. I really like the brown-blue combination. The stitching on the blue circles adds a bit of detail.

Life Goes On

Things aren't perfect, but I guess they would never be. This past week and weeks leading up to it, was filled with busy work and stress. But everything is calming down again. As my title goes, 'Life Goes On'. As I have mentioned, I have been working on Project Me. While most people are doing weeks, I am just doing whatever days are filled with memories. My pages are simpler than most others, but this already took me awhile to do, so I guess it is best I keep them simple.
