Project Life 2013 and cover

People who know me or who have been reading this blog for a while know that I've been a scrapbooker for many years, but this year I decided to start doing Project Life. I was finding it hard to find the time to commit to traditional layouts and what really matters most to me is recording the stories, housing my favourite photos and being a bit creative in the process. Project Life fits this brief perfectly. I'll be posting some of my weekly spreads over the next little while to record life here and also have an emergency backup online! If you find inspiration in my pages to apply to your project or to record more in your life, that makes me very happy! :)

This year I am using a Seafoam core kit and other digital freebies that I find online. My style includes lots of photos and journaling, some stamping and washi.

Here is my front cover page for this year.

Happy Easter!

Easter. It is such a special holiday. One that for many is about a long weekend, hot cross buns and chocolate eggs and I have to admit that those things have their perks. ;) But this year it has been about more.

The joy of seeing my daughter open small gifts on Easter morning and of her gathering coloured plastic eggs into a pink basket with the neighbors chickens watching on. (She really is the cutest thing I've ever seen!)
Making hot cross porridge as I can't eat the buns at the moment.
Visiting a Catholic Church service at 3pm on Good Friday, full of story and meaning.
Acknowledging the cross and thanking Jesus for His gift. Watching families do the same together.
Celebrating Jesus resurrection at church on Sunday. Feeling moved and getting teary as a song was performed.
Walking along the pier with my family and taking some gorgeous photos.

Tonight I am grateful for my husband and daughter. For my parents. For this place where we rest and holiday together and for the gift of life that I find in Jesus.

Even when I live my life below what I know I should, he continues to bless me and to love me. Even when life takes on challenges and I am focused on them rather than my blessings and my place in Him, He remains faithful.

I am grateful for Jesus.

My gorgeous girl

I can't get over how cute she looked today, all rugged up to feed the neighbors chooks (who visit the beach house) and pat the horses.

Wonderful Warburton

Sunrise from Mount Donna Buang, just after seeing one of two lyrebirds

We spent the weekend away with my family in Warburton to celebrate my mum's 60th birthday and it is a beautiful place. It was a full weekend- there was cycling for the boys (and chasing Toby and my brother up Mount Donna Buang before 7am), relaxing, playing, wading in the Yarra River, reading, eating, hiking to La La Falls, early morning walks to the park and plenty of time admiring the garden and birds from the comfort of our deck. 

Going away as a family was one of mum's birthday wishes and it was a great idea. I think that Tilly especially loved playing with her cousins.

Thank you for sharing the weekend with us mum and dad!

Here are some of my favourite snaps that I took on the weekend.

Amazingly, Tilly fell asleep when I was carrying her back down
