Another month, another Project Life spread!*
August was AMAZING! So much happened this month that I’m not really surprised that it totally flew in. At the beginning of the month I flew off to Alicante for a girls holiday which was so much fun! I have a whole spread on that which I’m not going to share here for fear of retribution, so I’ll let your imagination run wild instead. Other than that boat-load of fun, Ian and I came to the conclusion that we want to see more of our beautiful country so we’ve decided to go on as many adventures as possible by only driving 3 hours from the house. This month we ended up in Pitlochrie where we went to a weird garden, had tea with SO MANY pensioners, wandered around the cute town and bought a lovely bottle of gin.
Another big life even for us happened – we signed our lives away and bought a house! I opened a bottle of fizz when the deal was officially done but really these past 2 months have been all about making one crazy decision after another. Case in point – there is also a picture of me feeling very overwhelmed whilst trying to pick out my kitchen cabinets. Not a sentence I ever thought I would say…
Finally, we rounded off the month by celebrating the fact that I’ve been noising up this planet for 25 god-damned years. I’m just as surprised as you that no one has yet to mow me down in the street with their car, but hey-ho I live to sew another day. Ian took me to my favourite restaurant, Number 16, and then my mum hosted a small get-to-gether at her house for my friends and I which was just the best fun! We chilled in the hot tub, ate tapas, drank a lot of sangria and played bingo. I’m a very lucky girl ><
My title card is really basic (again) with a gold foil accent, black cork letters and a pre-printed chalkboard sticker. I used scrapbook papers from a Creative Retreat collection which I unsurprisingly found at TK Maxx ages ago and cut down into 6×4 and 4×4 cards. I have 2 different page layouts in this month due to the overhand from July but I quite like the interest it adds. I’m still on a bit of a spending ban which means no new embellishments sobs but the good news is that I’ve re-discovered my love for little letter stamps! My favourite thing to do recently is play about with image size and I quite like sizing down Instagram photos so I can fit a few of them on a card along with a bit of journalling.
Another month done and we’re well onto the next one. In September I have ANOTHER holiday (poor me) and also a trip to Arran with Ian’s family planned as well as the usual nonsense. Can’t wait!
