Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop - Project Life by Stampin' Up!

Welcome to the Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop!  I'm so happy you're here!

Our team decided to focus on memory keeping using Project Life by Stampin' Up! for this hop...and it was a happy coincidence to find that International Scrapbooking Day is March 4th...just two days away!

I've been on a roll...actually completing a TON of my memory keeping pages using the Project Life by Stampin' Up! products.  This system is seriously simple...SERIOUSLY.  I love that I can get the pages...and even books...done in a snap, and I love it even more that our grandsons adore pouring over the pages.

As I've collected photos and reminisced a bit...I found that I'm drawn to certain that have personal meaning for me.  The gotta catch that...spur of the moment photos...with something specific that caught my eye...something that would make me grab my camera or phone and snap away.

I wanted to do something different with those photos.  Something just for store away for myself. I wanted to do something girly...with gold and rhinestones and flowers...girly.  And I wanted something outside of the typical I did this...

a memory file...all girly and full of things that I LOVE!

Here's what's inside...and I can add to it as I wish...more photos or "pages" or both!  

And here's another cool thing...these Moments Like These cards are amazing...and seemed made just for these photos that I adore.  This is our grandson, Kenneth.  He has an imagination beyond belief...and I never know who I'll be spending time with.  Spiderman...a tiger...a dinosaur...or a Ninja Turtle.  Love that kid!

And this was the view inside a recent Stampin' Up! order.  A sweet reminder that these little guys had been here! 

And moments like finding these Lego super heroes...with displaced bodies and heads!  Love!

And last, but not least...the joy in our ordinary...the flour knees when they jump onto the counter to help with bread or cookies...or bare toes in the spring grass.  Joy...for certain

If you're hopping from the beginning you've come from the incredibly talented Steffi Helmschrott...and next up is the wonderful Susan Wong.  Click on won't want to miss it!

As always...
