Project Life - January!

Woohoo I said I was doin it and I am... got my Simple Stories 6x8 Album, got my Sn@p cards, got my Simple Stories pocket protectors and it's all happening...YAY!

Warning Photo overloaded post...lol!

So far so good... I am really enjoying the process of putting together a month at a time as opposed to a week at a time.  The Momento app really has been awesome to use and the pages are coming together quickly.  Here are the first few pages...

OK not bad but I was not entirely happy with the way the pages were looking.  The pages above were what did it... the left is ok but I love the right more.  I like the square photos better and a border helps to lift them off the background.  Check: square photos and white borders! 

As I am doing a 6x8 album, there is not a lot of room for journaling and not every photo I take has journaling to go with it... soooo I will utilise the 6x4 pockets for journaling a couple of days at a time, as well as the odd 3x4. 

And then some weeks I may just make a half page divider insert to hold all the journaling...lol! 

The month of January was a good learning curve and I'm eager to start the month of February making a few changes as I go.  I reckon it will June before I find my style and I'm ok with that... this is the first year of paper for me, so I'm being very forgiving and not worrying too much that the pages are not perfect.  This is real life after all *wink*

How is your PL coming along?

Have a great day!

A Photo-a-Day April!

Have you ever participated in one of these?  This is my first and I have to admit I'm having a bit of fun with it!  One of my nieces posted on instagram the #PHOTOADAYAPRIL by @FATMUMSLIM challenge and I thought why not. 

I have been having a blast playing with photo editing apps for my Project Life photos but I don't want to go too far with the editing of those.  So a photo a day is perfect for me!  I can see how creative I can get photography wise with the prompt for each day using my iPhone only, then indulge my app playing....FUN! FUN! FUN!  You can see all my photos here: INSTAGRAM FUN or you can just click the tab at the top of this page ;)

And the apps I use the most... Nostalgio for cool multi photo layouts, Phonto for adding text to images, Camera+ for most of my editing and Pixlromatic+ for really niffty filters, effects and borders. Oh and instagram of course...hehehehe!

If you have never tried a Photo a Day before...all I can say is dooooo iiiiiiit! So much fun!

Have a great day!

What's a girl to do.... seriously!  I love google reader, it's the only reader I truly love... and I've looked at few recently now that Google is putting Reader to bed.  Anyway while surfing the net I found a post on what to do and one suggestion was to sign up for Bloglovin and then another RSS reader... something like feedly. 

Well I am lovin Bloglovin it looks just like reader...woot woot and I've gone for RSSOwl as a feed reader only because it has a similar interface like Google Reader...hahaha!
