Project Life Challenge!

This is so exciting as at the moment I’m so into doing Project Life.

If you have been reading my previous post you would have know that I have been working on my Project Life Album

and that I have completed 2008 and now I’m working on 2009.

I have always taught it is better to work on the recent photos as they are still fresh in your mind.

But I’m finding Project life is great because it is so quick…slip a few photos into pockets

add some filler cards with journaling and its done. So instead of spending hours or days on

one page..I’m completing 4-6 pages a day.

This has made working on past photos really easy.

But…..with this challenge I decided to do something recent, photos from Mothers Day…last weekend.

For Mother’s Day my boys decided to take me to Sydney Drag Way at Eastern Creek.

Some may say “ODD” for Mother’s Day…..but I really enjoy the Drag Races.

I love the smell, the noise and excitement.

Mother’s Day was Ladies Day – Free Entry and I received a beautiful “Rose” .

Unfortunately it wasn’t a great day…a bit wet. Unless the track is dry the cars can’t run.

There was also a lot of smoke haze around from the back burning.

It did stop raining and the track did dry out.

And I loved it……and the boys wanted to go home before me.

These photo’s I took were of moving cars going 180 – 200 k over a mile length course.

So here is my entry for Global Design Project #35


I have a mix of pocket page layout and a single page layout.

As the photos don’t have a huge amount of colour I added the colour through the back ground papers.

I wanted a “Grunge” look with a bit of colour….well, lots of colour.

I made and stamped my own cards for the pockets to tie it all together.

Hope you enjoy my pages as much as I enjoyed reliving a great day.
