Oh, THERE you are!

Well, better way late ( like a year and a half) than never I guess! I have been working hard at....well, Life. That's not easy, let me tell you. Life can be a big fat nuisance. If you let it. BUT I have found a way (for myself, mostly) to make it a tad more enjoyable.

I give you The Writing With Light Project.

Now, I'm sure you have questions. Like "what the hell is this?" and "why do I care?"  Fair enough. But trust me, if you have access to a camera of any kind, you will love this project.

The plan? Take a photo everyday for a year. I know, I know. It's been done. But not like this. I'm not talking about a random photo everyday, or even photographing yourself everyday for a year as you watch the "magical" change. This project is an organized, thought-out process, which has a set of guidelines that encourage you to explore your comfort zone, then get out of it. It is (quite possibly) the best project I have ever imagined, and each month has been an amazing journey for my so-called "skills". (or, lack thereof.)

The guidelines are kept hidden until the month is over, then when I have moved onto the next month, I allow people to discover one of my ten guidelines. I can share with you that each month has it's own Color, and it's own Word which is spelled out in separate photographs. If you want to know the other's, keep your pants on and be patient, silly!:)

Pictures to come soon...I want to share it NOW, but leave it to blogger to not function properly when I really need it to. ♥

Since purchasing a new computer, I have had the enormous task of organizing my photos.


Although it has taken me a while to catch everything up, put everything into the right folders, add face recognition, etc...I have really enjoyed seeing how much Kain has grown, and how I have been able to keep track of that growth by scrapping about it. I wanted to share my favorite Kain layouts over the last year with you all. Enjoy!

Seeking PEACE

Scrapbooking from the Inside Out has the perfect emotion for the month of December: PEACE. It really goes hand in hand with what the holidays are all about, and it was so much fun creating with the kit for this month. I had so many different directions that I could go in, and I'm sharing one of those with you tonight!

This layout is all about seeking peace in my own life-I love the serenity that the paper brings. Although its such an emotional layout to create, it was easy for me to put my thoughts and feelings into words. I felt like the words were all I needed, and it was an important focal point for this layout.
Make sure you go to Scrapbooking From the Inside Out to check out this month's kit, it is gorgeous! I'll share more layouts tomorrow:)

Feeling Generous

For the month of November at SFTIO, it's all about GENEROSITY. I loved this kit, everything in it was warm and rich. (Why do us scrappers always use food buzz words to describe our favorite items?) Scrapbooking from the Inside Out is a monthly kit club that allows you to explore your emotions through scrapbooking. You are challenged to look into your inner world, and start scrapping all about YOU. It is a wonderful place to explore your emotions and meet wonderful friends. Check it out, and get in on the challenges- they might show you something about yourself you didn't know before! Here are some of my DT layouts for the GENEROSITY November kit.

Loss Layouts

Scrapping about Loss wasn't easy- but it helped in getting me to explore different kinds of loss, and how I felt about each of them.
