So the first Mini-challenge of Love-a-Thon was a Mix and Match post. The hosts challenged us to combine our bookish life with something non-bookish that we love, such as a hobby, passion, talent or fandom.
I thought I would share some of my finished Project Life® spreads from 2015 that included book events and photos of some of my books. I haven’t finished a whole lot of 2015 (as I’ve just started PL in Dec. 2015), but I thought this would be a little quirky thing to show you all.
Project Life® is a form of scrapbooking developed by Becky Higgins. Her website definitely explains it better than I’m about to. I describe PL as a cross between a regular photo album and traditional scrapbooking. To me, it incorporates the best aspects of both and mushes them together to create an easy scrapbooking style.
So without further adieu, here are my spreads:
This spread has a picture of my spine poetry from last year’s Love-a-Thon! I also received this awesome custom-made tote from my friend’s business Qustom Quinns that I love to [now] take to book events 🙂
This is another unfinished spread that’s lacking some journaling. I went to ApollyCon and met a bunch of wonderful authors, including the guest of honor – J.L. Armentrout. Pictured here (top down) are Tiffany King, Jay Crownover and Jeaniene Frost. The following spread is of the “afterparty” that took place after the signings for that day. I remember JLA was signing well until 5 or 6pm because she was so sweet and decided to stay for everyone still in line. This was the first ApollyCon so I don’t think they were expecting the turnout that showed up but it really was a fantastic turnout in my opinion. My mom came with me so it was fun to bond with her at a book event 🙂
Sadly these are all the spreads I have “done” right now. I’m way behind, but classes have been busy haha. I’m hoping to get some down time soon to work on these! I’m just about to start March 🙂 I’m also planning on ordering some more photos in different sizes from Persnickety Prints
Thanks for stopping by! I really can’t wait to see everyone else’s posts! Do you scrapbook at all or do Project Life®? Let me know in the comments below!! I’m always looking for inspiration and spend an inordinate amount of time on YouTube watching process videos.
Happy Reading [and crafting]!
