Project Life App : Digital Scarpbook Page

I am trying to figure out how to post these layouts without the blogger app.
I got a new phone and ever since I reformatted the SD card no more room for Blogger app😑. Was it a great app?
No. Was it useful enough? Yes kinda like oatmeal , not spectacular but the health benefits are what you need.😝 I am still editing pics with the sketch camera app.
Most of the colors came from the Inspirational​ themed kit and the Yellow Stripes from the High Five Edition. Well I hope this works

Project Life App : Digital Scrapbook Page

I believe I figured out a way to add these layouts. I have to post through Instagram on my phone first. Then add it to Blogger via my phone . If only I had more room on my SD card. Anyhooo....I finished Waiting by Ha Jin. I also finished Prey by Michael Crichton. (Author of Jurassic Park) and started on The Client by John Grisham, saw the movie years ago thought I would try the book.I used the High Five Edition . The photos were edited by Avairy app for the color app and Sketch Camera app so I could use them with the bright colors.  I miss traditional  layouts since school is out I will try to do my project life photo album.
