October Project Life

10 months down and I’m still not tired of scrapbooking! Today I’m showcasing 2 spreads from my album for October Project Life. First up is the standard monthly spread

I used cards exclusively from the Favourite Things Project Life core kit and kept the embellishments very simple. That’s what’s so great about Project Life – you can let the pictures do the taking and you can spend very little time making a spread which looks really put-together. I quite like that there’s quite a lot of explanation of some of the pictures in the first half of the month, for example I used a full-size group picture to document our day out at Go Ape and added a gold arrow paper clip to point to the description above. The second half of the month is dominated by my best friends which is unfortunately a bit of a rareity. I asked them to be my co-maids of honour and they in turn thanked my with the most beautiful bunch of flowers and really heart-felt card.

The second spread this month was devoted to our engagement party. My parents really wanted to throw a bit of a do to celebrate with our family and it just so happened that the best weekend for everyone seemed to be Halloween so we made it a fancy dress party. Now I LOVE HALLOWEEN. I love everything about it, but most of all getting dressed up. I put a bit of thought into our costume choice and decided it would only be right if we went as Frankenstein and his bride.

I love this whole spread! The title card is made up of a shot of our DIY photobooth sign and some halloween stickers which I think looks pretty good! I used a black and white colour scheme with some gold glitter because I couldn’t leave it well enough alone. The photos really do speak for themselves though – everyone made such an effort! In the 2nd picture above you can see Tee-Total Ken and Clean & Dust Barbie! Their costumes were absolutely fantastic! Special mention, however, goes to my betrothed for his Frankenstein face paint which he insisted on doing all himself. Just look at that skill!
