Project Life 2013- a snapshot

I have mentioned before how I really like the concept of Project Life and adapted it for my travel album, but was a bit overwhelmed at the thought of doing the actual PL and documenting day by day and all the minutia. A friend of mine has tackled that challenge and I applaud her.
I was inspired, but knew there was no way that I could do that this year with everything health wise that was going on, so opted for the less challenging version of doing it by the month rather than day or week- a snapshot of 2013 as it were. I also don't feel too far behind as we are only in Feb (well if only for a day or so). I have started on my January & February layouts and will post them as I finish tarting them up. At the moment they are bare bones and look a bit bland.

but to prove that I have actually started, here is the cover page....very simple, but I may yet go back & add to it as I feel stronger....or not.

These are the main colours I will be using throughout

Basic Grey paper, MME tape, Authentique sticker

Heidi Swap Sticker, cardstock, Echo Park sticker, Making Memories sticker

Daisy D's rubons, Cuttlebug diecut, Prima paper

Happy Birthday Fee

Happy Birthday to my dear friend Fiona!!

Keeping in touch

Just a note to keep in touch. It's been 3 weeks since my operation and 2 since I have been home and I have had lots of time to check out all sorts of creative blogs and Pinterest (I am an addict) and so now the creative juices are flowing, but the ability to "do" anything is not as I have limited use of my right arm/shoulder/neck at the moment. So that is really frustrating after all those times when the mojo went missing before. Ironic - right.

Well I am madly stacking up ideas for when I am able and in the meantime am doing some therapeutic paper cutting. I think they call that baby steps. Hopefully I will be back soon with some creativity to show you, but in the meantime I look forward to checking out yours.

Note: The card posted on 12th Feb and the one being posted on the 27th Feb were created before the op.
