Bimini Moose Challenge - Anything Goes!

Happy New Year! I am sooo super excited to be part of the very first Pocket Scrapbooking challenge over at BIMINI MOOSE!

Our challenge this time is...
Pocket Scrapbooking - ANYTHING GOES

Our challenges will run for 2 weeks.
This one will close on Mon, Jan 19 @ Noon Eastern time - giving us time to pick a Top 3 for the post the following day with our Next Challenge.

For my project I wanted to create a title page for my first ever Project Life album. I am very excited about doing this type of album!! My girls love looking at pictures of themselves and this way I can get those pictures off my phone, or computer, and into an album. I also think I will be able to get way more journaling done - it's just so easy to forget all the little details if they're not written down right away!

I used the layout, for the most part, shown on the inside of the Core card kit, adding embellishments, pictures, die cuts, stamping and journaling. I love that I can add my 'old' stash supplies to this 'new' core kit to create a personalized album just for our family <3

I used my Cricut to die cut the word Happy with the Straight From The Nest cartridge and the 2015 with the Cricut as well.  I was actually looking for Hello, and after I glued on Happy I realized my mistake - but I hope it is a Happy year, so I guess that works, lol!

I used the heart stamps from Pretty Cute Stamps Any Better Than This stamp set and coloured them in with Distress Markers, and an Amy Tangerine date stamp.

For my album I'm using the Honey Edition album and core kit, but I plan to add lots of my own details and combine other cards as well. I just love all the bright colours in this kit!
