Paper Issues: We're LISTening

I thought it was fun that the new issue at Paper Issues is about "Lists" at the same time I am starting the "Lists With Friends" projects. You can read more about that on This Post.
A few of the design team members have projects featured on the Paper Issues blog, but I am not on this issue. I do plan on linking up some older pages though and creating a new one.
Layouts like this one...
where I used a pre made journal card to list some of my favorite things I loved at 40.
And this one...
which was actually a scraplift of another scrapbooker at the time. Not the idea, but the overall design.
And the last page I will probably link is this one...
a page I did back when I was on the ScrapGal design team. I had to share a technique and I came up with using mists and border stickers to create a large pocket. The actual page is only 8x8 and is in an ongoing album I have for layouts with lists about Mike :)

I think my new layout is going to be about the fact that I have an actual notebook for my lists! And that in addition to my notebook, I also use a dry erase board, calendar and post it notes for more lists.
I am the list Queen in these parts!

So if you would like to join in and have a chance to win a $20 GC to the Paper Issues Store, make sure to link up your "list" projects old or new by January 19th. I will have a blog post on the PI blog next week and hope to feature someone I know :)

  9. you inspire me so much, Mary Jo!
