Project Life – CASE-ing the Catty

Hello Again.

What have I learnt today? – that trying to take photos of Project Life pages in the evening does not work well!

I really wanted to do this week’s CASE-ing the Catty challenge but couldn’t get it finished until today so apologies for the quality of the photos. This week’s challenge was to CASE a project or take inspiration from the Memory Keeping section of the Catalogue.

I’d started earlier in the week with the colours form the Around the World Stampin’ Up! Challenge (check it out HERE) as I wanted to do a page of our son and daughter from when they were younger and the colours of Strawberry Slush, Pool Party, Basic Grey and Whisper White were perfect – though I rarely dressed them in traditional colours.

I was inspired to do this from page 24 of the catalogue and wanted to show their everyday life. What better way than pictures of them perched on their favourite couch, taking a bath and having a story read to them by their Dad. And all these pictures were taken on one day about 19 years ago!

I used cards and accessories from Project Life Everyday Adventure and the Playground Collections – they each had some of the colours I wanted to use. I also added a few details in Strawberry Slush, Pool Party and Basic Grey using the PL Day to Day,  Back to Basics Alphabet and Yipee-Skipee stamp sets.

I haven’t put my journalling in yet, but luckily I was usually good at writing on the back of photos at the time and even have a couple of Beth’s sayings from the time recorded!

I’ll try and add some better photos tomorrow – was keen to support the challenge before it closes!

ps Have updated the photos so it’s a bit easier to see what is in the photos now and the colours are more true to life.
