Hey everyone! Today Allie and I are guest posting a scrapbooking Recipe Challenge over at Paper Lovers Studio. Head over there for a challenge and a giveaway! The 12 x 12 layout I made for the challenge is part of a Project Life spread, so I thought I’d share it here!

Along with doing my current Project Life, I’m working on a retroactive Project Life for 2011. Right now I’m on Week 10; I took most of the info from my blog post archives and from my Week 10 356 post.

Left Side: Jonas starts sleeping through the night, my mom and sister go fabric shopping with me (and Jonas), Uncle Nick can’t deny Eliza anything after coming back from Oregon, going out for Thai, and random bits from the week.

I just got a Rukristin Currently Stamp in the mail, and I’m so going to use it to head random bits all of the time.

Right Side: I had a lot of fun creating a page for the Recipe Challenge! I’m going to try to make my own watercolor patterned paper more.

This page is all about Jake’s brother Nick coming back from Oregon. He moved in with us for a few months in 2011, which was awesome and we miss, so I wanted to make sure that the big life change didn’t get lost in the page protectors.

How do you make sure big life changes stick out in Project Life?
