Hi everyone! I’m really excited to be on the blog today with a Project Life spread. If you’re like me, sometimes you just can’t squeeze all the pics you want in a traditional layout. That’s the perfect time to kick it Project Life style. A Project Life spread doesn’t have to chronicle a one-week period. You can use that style anytime you want to work in extra photos.

For my assignment, I used photos from my son’s first birthday party. He was born in March and we had a St. Patrick’s Day theme for his party. Most of my photo had lots of green with bits of red in them. So, I browsed through the Fancy Pants Designs Brag Pads to see which cards had something related to birthdays or parties or St. Patrick’s Day or would just generally coordinate well with my photos. The Brag Pads are PERFECT for Project Life because they fit right into standard photo pockets.
For my title, I used a St. Patrick’s Day download from the Fancy Pants Designs home page. There are so many fun downloads, totally free, that mix and match well with any collection. This download said: So Lucky. It was perfect!
To play on the St. Patrick’s Day theme, I perched a top hat from the Swagger Ephemera Pack on a March calendar printed from the internet.
On the right side of the spread, I used a number card from the Trend Setter Brag Pad. To emphasize the theme of a first birthday, I used a large black number one from the TS Ephemera pack, with arrows pointing to my son with this “smash cake,” a cupcake with a #1 candle.
Here’s a complete look at the right side.
Thank you and can't wait for you to share your Project Life spread with us!
