card creating update

it's been over a month since i shared any new greeting cards with you guys!  i actually haven't created any in a while, but i realized that i hadn't shared these most recent cards here on the blog.


project life: year 30 - may

yes!  i have started back on project life.  for the past couple weeks i've taken 3 or 4 days to work on it and now i'm only 1-1/2 months behind. :-)

today i am going to share my album and the little bit that i have for may.  since my birthday is on the 30th that means i only had two days to put in for may.  i actually did 2 full 12x12 layouts and one project life spread for those two days.

later this week i'll share all of my june layouts with you, so be sure to check back!

just a brief explanation of what i did on the 30th and 31st... on my birthday i went with my parents to tulsa for a bit of shopping.  we had a great time even though there were thunderstorms off and on all day.  but then that evening, just as we were leaving town we ended up in a really bad storm that ended up producing a tornado just behind us!  it was definitely the scariest thing that i have ever been in.  i'm so thankful that it was a small tornado and that it didn't produce too much damage.  then on the 31st i went to rogers with my mom for a day of shopping and then that evening i met up with friends for dinner and some froyo.  i really had a great two days celebrating my golden birthday.

i'm going to use this layout to complete one of my scrapbook challenges in my 31 before 31 list.  this will be for the "journaling" challenge.  i rarely include that much writing on a layout, but the tornado was such a memorable experience that i really wanted to record it.

i may add another 12x12 layout to the may section as i do want to include my 31 things before 31.
