Now, on to the latest Project Life Challege!!!

There are so many ways to incorporate this challenge in to your Project Life spread or if you're like me and were a bit shy on the photos for the week, it gave me a great jumping off point to fill my pockets ;)).
One of my favourite techniques is heat embossing and so I pulled out a couple of stamps and embossing ink and powder to add metallic gold to this spread. I stamped 'hello life' and 'the facts', both Ali Edwards stamps for Technique Tuesday and gold heat embossed. The 4x6 sheet with 'the facts' embossed is a snippet of one of my "to-do" lists.
Here's a close up of the 'hello life' card which is a 3x4 Project Life blank card that I stamped with embossing ink then covered with gold detailed embossing powder and heat set.

The top and bottom right pockets contain cuts from WRMK Metallic Sheets. The top left card was cut from Studio Calico "All that Glitters" paper. The numbers are Thicker Chit Chat glitter letter stickers, small alphas/numbers are Teresa Collins Basically Essential Alpha Stickers.

That's my PL layout for this challenge, I hope you'll join myself and the entire SOUS Project Life Design Team in this challenge! I'm looking forward to reading your comments and feel free to ask any questions regarding my process or layout as well!!

Here's the entire blog hop line up:

I'm a new follower. LOVE LOVE LOVE the name of your blog. Great PL page, I really like the notes card and all the little "notes" on what was going on.

I have to say...this is really clean and simple and I really like it! I think the metallic really gives it that punch without being overstated with a bunch of other stuff! Pretty!

xoxo! I also agree with Barbara, I do love your blog name, had just been thinking that too!
