Favorite Five on Friday

My five things today, lets cut to the chase...

1. I would like to share a link to a give away that I was directed to yesterday on another scrapper's blog, if you share this giveaway on your blog and so forth you are entered into a contest, who doesn't love contests, lol.  I need all of these flair buttons, they are too cute. I'm just now starting in on the game and I need to stock up.

So go check it out the Greatest View Giveaway....


2. Stephanie Baxter posted on her blog her plan for her Project Life 2012, using a variety of products.  She is using the new Studio Calico Handbook that should be coming out soon and a lot of their other products, I especially love their roller date stamp, I want that one so bad!!  She has some SNAP items from Simple Stories and even some of Becky Higgins new release items.  

I am really considering my options for next year, I hardly do any 4x6 photos for my current book and I feel like some of my spreads are just wasted space and it can get a little time consuming trying to fill it all.  

So go check out Stephanie Baxter at Life In Paper and Glue and read all about her plan. 


3. My oldest daughter will be a senior this year and she is really into instagram, aren't we all? I want to do a journal type project life book for her senior year.  Just capturing all the random things and the important milestones that she will have, so I am really thinking I will go this route.  I love the idea that Shelley at The House of Smith's posted on her blog. She decided to simplify her project life.  She uses a lot of instagram and this just seems like the perfect route for me to accomplish this book for my daughter.  I love the page protectors she is using.  She also gives you a link to Followgram which is another way for you to see your instagram feed on your computer, I have a different way but I am totally switching to this one, this is the only place I have found that shows the actual date you took the picture.  Yes, you read correctly the date.  I hate how instagram only shows the weeks or days or hours or minutes....drives me insane when I am looking for a specific day for my kid's pictures.

So go check out and read Shelley's blog post over on The House of Smiths


4. This is not at all related to project life or crafts but this is on my wishlist, it's actually on the top of my wishlist...I really really want this.  But it's sold out right now.....

It's a case for my iphone that looks like a Rangefinder, lol.  Be still my heart....

You can find it here on the Photo Jojo site.


5. Lastly my favorite quote of the week....

I tend to tickle my husband and he hates it... admittedly I do as well.  So I don't know why I do it to him....lol

Great picks! Love the Instagram idea. I just started using it but have been thinking about ways to document the photos. Will check out Shelley's idea. Thanks for the links! :)

Love your picks! I'm totally addicted to instagram, which helps this year while I'm doing PL, but even though I won't do another year of PL next year, I think I will continue making a month in review page with my insta-pics :-)

I have been doing project 365, which is a small photo with journaling. Simple and to the point.
As for the Iphone cover/lens you love, we bought it for my daughter for her birthday and she LOVES it.
