C & P - East Coast (Photo Heavy)


My friend Heather and her son Conor came for a visit last month.  Our last photo adventures are HERE when we visited the Mitten State.  It's amazing what a few months of growth in toddlers means.  They played and played and played.  It was AMAZING, especially for us mommas who were happy to have them entertain each other. 





We had a couple of adventures.  We went to the Baltimore Zoo and it was FREEZING, but the who cares.  We spent Saturday in the Capitol, it was 60 degrees!  It was the best day in a long time around here with all the snow.  The kids had a fabulous time.  Well Conor I don't think knew what to do with a very pushy Parker.

Project Life, Plus One style

Jen Chesnick- Project Life- American Crafts2

Happy Friday, stopping in to share another Plus One project for American Crafts.  I worked up a Project Life spread, and if you know me I don't do them very often.  I love the color combination of Plus One.  Hot Pink, Teal......Fabulous.  I also used lots of the script Thickers they are by far my favorite piece of the collection.

Here We Go Plus One Mini Album + Kerri Bradford Files

Jen Chesnick- Here we go- American Crafts

Last week I shared I was the Guest Designer for the American Crafts Plus One week.  Here is the mini album I created for that post.  I used an older Amy Tan cut file to create the camera album.  I lined the backside with cardstock to make it thicker.

I printed out my Instagram photos from our trip to Spokane on my Selphy.  I chose with border and they roughly printed around 3x3 instead of 4x4.
