My mojo is on it's way back!

Well, this weekend I worked on a card for my grandmother and on weeks 6 and 7 of my project life.  

Let's start off with the card shown below, I used all things "Follow Your Heart" by Rhonna Farrer for My Mind's Eye.  The papers I used are from the BE AMAZING 6x6 paper pad found at HERE and the embellishments are found HERE.  I added a doily and some sewing pattern paper I had on hand and I love how it turned out!  Today's is my late Grandfather's birthday, the first since we lost him this past December.  We all think of him and miss him but I know it's especially hard for my Grandmother.  I think she will love the card, especially since it's handmade.
Now here is a look at my Project Life, I have decided that for the month of February I would put the main focus on my photos taken for the daily #febphotoaday project. This fun daily photo assignment is being hosted by Chantelle of Fat Mum Slim she lives in Australia.  There are thousands of folks following her instagrams as in over 10,000! WOW!  She has a list for March too so you should play along with us!

OK, on to my pages that I love! Click on any photo to see in a larger size. Sorry for the dark photos, it was a grey day and so my photo taking is not the best.
I have a video tutorial HERE showing you how to use the Cameo to create that Week 6 card above or at least one similar. I also used the Cameo to cut out that honeycomb pattern below and the tutorial for that one is HERE. *nothing like spotting a typo on a journaling card after you post it, ha! I think it will be an easy fix with some washi tape then a re-write with the correct spelling this time, ha~

Can't wait for the 6x12 protector pages so I can change the one used above that is way too big for that insert.  I didn't share the back of that insert because I still have lots of journaling to do on some things that I did that week that I didn't do instagrams on.  I might come back at a later time and add a photo when done to this post.
So all papers used on both pages are from the same line used on the card, those papers were too great not to continue using and I will have to order me a few more 6x6 pads.  I also have the BE HAPPY 6x6 pad, I find that I love using this size as the patterns in the paper are smaller and work so well on cards and in the Project Life cards too.

I won't always be using my cell phone photos, but for this months PL I am happy to use them.  I love all the fun apps that are out there to use with your photos, don't you!

Thanks for stopping in and let me know if you have any questions or need links to anything you have seen.  Sorry for all the excessive jabbering, lol.
