project life: week 24

**Updated with winner below**

Today is a very happy day (other than the fact that it's the first day of school for my boys, but we're not going to talk about that). Instead we are going to talk about Becky Higgins' new photo pocket and envelope pages. I'm so excited about all the new styles that came out recently! And I'm extra excited that I get to give a set away today!


To enter the contest, just leave a comment on this post by tomorrow (Tuesday) night at 10 pm central. Contest is open to U.S. residents only.

Now to share week 24... I saved this week until I could include Design J because I knew I would have lots of extra photos for our vacation week. I love the new styles that allow you to add inserts of extra photos without totally covering up the second half of your week since they are narrower than 12 inches. Check out this post on Becky's blog for a description of all the new designs.

So here's my layout all about our vacation including the insert.


left side:

right side:

insert front:
insert back:

And a few details:

**I spelled out the words on the mini-title card with the Stepping Stone Alpha stamp set from Studio Calico. The tiny letters that spell "of" and "the" are from a stamp set that was only available with a stamp class at Studio Calico last month.


**So many of you have questions about the letters and map stamp I used here. The letters are American Crafts Thickers by Studio Calico. The style is Abroad Everywhere. The stamp is a Studio Calico stamp set called Adventure. Unfortunately, I don't think either of these items are still available so if you really want them you may have to check ebay.



Don't you love my state of Utah card? I downloaded a set of cards that includes every state here. They come with a black background and white state so I changed mine up in Photoshop by adding one of the digital Clementine papers to the background and changing the color of the state with a color overlay layer style.

Okay, don't forget to leave a comment to enter the contest! I'll post the winner on Wednesday. Good luck!

**The winner of the giveaway is #72 kristy.lynn @ kristy.makes. Congrats to Kristy! I hope you enjoy the new products!
