project life blog hop with the practical scrappers and scraptown lady

Hello and welcome to the PRACTICAL SCRAPPERS and SCRAPTOWN LADY Blog Hop!  We thought it would be fun to combine forces and share projects with you that have our design teams’ takes on one of the hottest scrapbooking trends around:  Project Life.  

Whether you are a “Project Lifer,” are interested in Project Life, or just want to find out ways to use all those fantastic Project Life types of products and ideas on your own projects, we have a hop FULL of inspiration and creativity!  

We’ve got a fabulous prize, too - a $25 gift certificate to Scraptown Lady’s shop, which is stocked with awesome scrapbooking supplies!  What do you have to do to be entered in the drawing?  It’s easy!  

  • Be a follower of Practical Scrappers; and
  • Be a follower of Scraptown Lady; and
  • Visit all the blogs, starting with Practical Scrappers and ending with Scraptown Lady, and leave a comment at each blog along the way.   

We will be hopping until Sunday, June 30th, at 11:59 p.m. CST.  The grand prize winner will be announced on Tuesday, July 2nd!

I am guessing if you have been hopping along, you have come from Lanette's blog, if not, be sure to make your way back to the start of our hop.  

From time to time I have been sharing my Project Life pages here as well as the Chic Tags blog.  Here is a look at my Project Life spread from week 17.

And here are a couple of close up shots...




I love, love working on this project.  Yes, it can get frustrating when you are running short on time and I have learned that there will be some weeks that are very detailed and some that are plain and simple.  Both me and my kids have enjoyed looking back at our life from even a couple of weeks ago and I can only imagine how we will feel looking back as time goes on.  It is SO WORTH IT! 

There is so much out there geared towards making this a doable endeavor!  I hope you are enjoying our little project life blog hop and you are feeling inspired.  

One last thing...I have a little giveaway for one lucky commenter on my blog.  It is a  mini project life kit with some journaling cards, tags and some of my favorite little embellishments that I love to include on my weekly spreads.  I also have a small Studio Calico Project Life stamp set that I will pop in there.  Comments will close Sunday at midnight central time.  I will post the winner early next week, so be sure to check back.

Next up in our hop is Danielle's blog.  I absolutely adore her work, be sure to pay her a visit!

Thank you so much for stopping by!
