2014 Project Life Title Page and One Little Word

Yes, I know... I've started my 2014 album before I finished 2013 or December Daily or Week In the Life and I'm toooootally OK with that... whenever I find a bit of time I work a little bit on those albums and I know eventually I'll be finished... but I'm so very excited to start a new year and I'm totally excited to have one of my FAVE scrappers, Shanna Noel, guest designing at The Lilypad... it was soooo much fun working with her designs. The BYOC is probably my most fave color scheme EVER and I've loved everything that's come out... I just wish I had more time to play with it all... but with hosting my family's Christmas, I didn't and only got to play with a few things this week in between cleaning the house and food prep...

sooo here's my title page for 2014... I did a lot to this spread... Shanna had these AMAZING templates and I had fun altering them a bit and making them "me"... she also had this really awesome hybrid mini kit, that I'm in LOVE LOVE with and had fun working with her on a little tutorial that's coming to TLP next week, I'll be sharing more about that next week :) I also had fun blending yummy digital papers with yummy digital journal cards... I think that's become my signature look to make my cards artsy... I think it's bringing back some of my creative joy that I kinda lost when I decided not to do full page layouts anymore and it definitely is more "me" to have that mixed media look to my cards... and my favorite thing was cutting up a 4x6 card in the middle so that I could have that awesome card dead center on my spread... I totally LOVE how it all turned out and seriously think it's my fave PL spread EVER!!!

I then decided I wanted to do a little art journal page about my One Little Word for this year... this gave me another excuse to play with more of the BYOC goodies, lol... I totally LOVE how this turned out, and I inserted it in a 6x8 page protector which fits perfectly in the 12x12 albums, YAY!!! Now I need to figure out what I'm going to put in the back side of it... I'm thinking maybe a 2014 calendar... that might be perfect for the beginning of an album... hmm...
