Tabbed Card-Project Life challenge-SOUS

Hellooooo fellow lifers.. 
Are you thinking about starting on your project Life album next year? you know its only a few weeks away right?.. Well, let us girls over at SOUS inspire you and help you get started..

I know when I first started making my PL spreads, I wasn't sure what on earth I was doing but its been a few months now and lets just say, I think I got the hang of it..LOL
I don't have the luxury of buying the ready made kits for PL, but I am lucky enough to be able to create my own cards using the Silhouette software, I can make them personal and original.. So much fun designing my cards with die cuts, digital elements and lots of free fonts to choose from..

Here is what my PL spread looked like in the Silhouette software:

Once I printed everything and cut the individual cards, my spread looked like this:
The colors are nice and rich , but this photo just doesn't do it justice.. living at the north pole has its disadvantages, like no sun all winter :(  So trying to take a half way descent photo is almost impossible..

how about some close ups:

for my tabbed card, I decided to go with a recipe card.. No exact measurements, but the steps on how I created my very first Pumpkin pie from scratch.. I sacrificed my Halloween pumpkin since I knew it would end up in the trash eventually :)  No sugar pumpkins available here, so had to do with what was available..

here's a pic of my pumpkin.. It stayed pretty for a very long time, since I didn't carve it this year.. just used it as a decoration in my living room..

I found this cute book which is a digi element and wanted to do some personal journaling on it..*I actually hate searching for recipes and then find one that calls for a boxed cake mix, those ready made materials aren't available here, so I prefer the "from Scratch" recipes..  You wouldn't believe what all I have to make from scratch..LOL

my week title card.. I decided to create a long card for this weeks spread.. came out really pretty, just wish I had used the outline print option (SIL software) on this card like I had done with the others.. I think the elements would of popped more.. 

and finally my ready made pie.. It was really tastey, only thing I will do differently next time is to make sure the pumpkin is a real fine puré.. 

and there ya have it, my PL spread for this weeks challenge..
