MKPLxSU Blog Share: Memories In The Making


I hope you didn't think I'd forgotten about my little blog! I was having a bit of a break over the Christmas/New Year period, but now I'm back and ready to get straight back into blogging.  What better way to start than with a Blog Share with the Memory Keeping with Project Life by Stampin' Up! team? We are a part of a Facebook group with a focus on scrapbooking using PLxSU products.  This month we are showcasing a brand new collection, called Memories In The Making.  You can find the collection in the new Occasions Catalogue.

One of the things we did over the holiday break was go home and visit my family in country NSW. My hometown is on the Murrumbidgee River, and this summer we decided to do a River Float. This pretty much involved gathering as many lifejackets and inflatable devices as we could find, jumping in the river at the boat ramp and floating along (hopefully as a group!) until we reached the beach further down the river.

I didn't actually get to float this time, I was a driver.  Someone had to meet the floaters at the other end and bring them home!

The title was made using the alphabet stickers in the Accessory Pack. The 'FUN' banner was also from the Accessory Pack, I simply cut one of the 5.1 x 5.1cm cards that said 'FUN FUN FUN' into thirds and used on third on the layout. I sometimes struggle to use those tiny cards, so this was a perfect way to use one.

I ran out of space on the main journalling card to write the names of all the people floating, so I decided to use another of the tiny cards to include this detail. I adhered it to the photo using some of the washi tape from the Accessory Pack.

So there you have my layout for the month. How did you spend your Christmas break?

There are several other blogs for you to check out this month:
