Project Life, Week Eleven

Cathy ZielskeProject Life, Scrapbooking11 Comments

The ice is finally starting to recede on the tundra where I live. The shot above was one of 49 photos I took last week. Do you know what’s funny? In this digital era, you all know that 49 photos in a week is a small number, right? Can you imagine, back in the early 2000s if you took 49 photos every week? (Okay, yes, some scrapbookers absolutely did!) But that would be a couple rolls of film every week. Even I didn’t do that with regularity. But 49 pics in this day and age? Pfffft! That’s a paltry number. So I only made one page for this week’s Project Life contribution.


This page features very few extras. I kept trying to layer in some digital art, but it just looked forced and crowded. And yes, I made the week’s high about me. Well, me and Margie.


I very much get into a pattern in my life. That pattern does not include a lot of socialization. True, I am an introvert and I am super grateful for my quiet office and my lack of social obligations, but man it is good to get out and hang with people you really love and appreciate.

    My PL project is sadly lagging … and the year is still fairly new. I have GOT to do better at documenting the week, or I will forget the good stuff!!

    And my life is plenty full of the good stuff, if I just slow down and pay attention. Thanks for the encouragement, Cathy.

    OK, I’m going to ask. What is BDB? I feel like I should already know the answer, but alas, I’ve got nothing.

    Fun page! I love that you’re sharing how many photos you took each week (or at least you have the past couple of weeks or so). 🙂 It’s funny how our perspectives change. Two rolls of film a week… people would have thought you were a professional photographer! 🙂

    Hello Cathy, love seeing your one pager again. Not sure how you do it so well but glad you do. Lots of good stories/memories all wrapped up into this one page, between the pictures and journaling you ROCK AT THIS!!
    I didn’t realize Frozen was still at theater’s. My daughter and I love that movie, saw it when it came out and just bought the dvd and watched it again and will a few more times I’m sure. The Let It Go song is number one on my playlist right now too, yes I’m dorky but hey it keeps me smiling!!
    My PL is way behind, feel so bad I let it go, hoping to catch up soon. Love that your counting pictures!!
    Happy Spring and have a great weekend!

    Hi Cathy! I am using your templates. Is there a way to change the color of the thin lines around the “boxes” – I would love to have the journaling framed by a color matching to my pictures!

    Yes! In PSE 11, if you double click on the little fx that appears on the PHOTO layer, it will bring up the Style Settings palette. In the lower right there is a small grey box displaying the current color of the stroke. Click on that box once to bring up the Select Stroke Color color picker. Pick a new color (you can also hover your mouse over a photo, for example, to get the Eyedropper Tool and select a color that way, too). Then click OK and OK again and voila, you have changed the color of the outline.
