 A lot of people have asked about the size photos I print. I use the Collage feature in I change the size to 1800 x 1200 (which makes it a 4x6 photo). I try to put as many photos as I can on one 4x6 partly because I hoard my ink and don't want to print full photos of everything, and partly because I like my filler cards and want them to be able to be seen in my scrapbook and not completely covered up with a photo.  So the sizes of the photos are just from me messing with them and seeing what should be bigger than another, etc and making them all fit as best I can on one 4x6 print. This week I printed 3 of the 4x6 photo sizes. Normally I just print 2.

Here are my Week 3 pages (3 pages this time instead of 2):

Good Times Card has dates of Mon - Sun for that week.

Seeker girl card (love that artwork)

List (using the Twist for this challenge) - 5 things you may not know about me:
1 - I love the aroma of brewing coffee, but don't drink it
2 - Crowds terrify me
3 - I can be Claustrophobic
4 - I won't walk over anything I can see through: grates, docks, etc.
5 - I can't sleep without wrapping myself up like a mummy in my green blanket.

Middle Row:
You're weird. I like you. (Love this card!)

Friday's Photo a Day "nature."

Love card - includes a heart die from My Creative Time.

What I Love List (using the TWIST for this challenge.)
1 - My Family
2 - My Retired Life
3 - Camping
4 - Planning with Tom
5 - Our Pit Bull Babies

Bottom Row:
Bike card that says Adventure def: a mission with a positive outcome and some cool stuff along the way.
I included a tiny photo Tom took Saturday. They are building a Hardees in Swansea. That's the town 10 minutes from where we live. It's very surprising that any big food chain is coming this close to North. Yay!

Quote Card - this is a $22,000 pool table we saw Saturday during our shopping trip to Columbia. That's a lot of money!! It was really pretty though. They also had a $5,000 juke box. Those 2 things would be super cool in Tom's mancave - when he gets it built. If we only had that kind of pocket change. LOL

Top Row:
This is Life card.

Kati and her Kitty cat. She commented that I didn't have any photos of her child in the family scrapbook. LOL

Middle Row:
Picture of Tom with our 2 babies both crowded onto his lap.

I played around with Art Journaling in a spiral notebook last week. I'm no artist, but it was still fun.

Last photo is our dining room table with a puzzle Tom is working on his end, and the one I'm struggling with on my end. For Sunday's Photo a Day "Today is.." Puzzle Day.

Bottom Row:
Life According to Me... Tom, Kati and I all wear some type of Vivo step counter. My sleep graphs tend to show strange spikes in movement randomly during the night. I just thought I'd share one of those graphs with you. You would think that peek represented me getting up and going to the bathroom or something, but no, I slept good that night. I have no idea what I was doing that made that activity spike like that. Guess I was having a dream I was running or something. LOL

Do What Makes You Happy!

That's my Week 3 Photos and Journaling.
Long post - I know- but thanks for hanging in there until the end.

Be sure to link up your Project Life pages (past or present) into our challenge.
Hope you'll also take the extra twist and include one with a LIST of some sort.
Remember, everyone who enters will receive a FREE digi file and one lucky entry will win a FREE cut file from KaDoodle Bug Designs.
Good luck!

:) Janis

  1. Your PL layouts are amazing Janis! I love them all and love the twist for this week. I am going to try to get myself together and play along. What filler cards are you using? I love them, they are so cute and fun! I know some you make yourself too. Hugs, Brenda
