Project Life Week 6

Hello everyone !!

While we are currently on vacation I am taking some down time today to get crafty and blog ! Yippee, right !

Week 6 | 2015

This one has been done for a while, waiting for me to finish up a small insert. No, the insert is not done but I am going to share the week with you.

Here is a look at the title card.

I started with a card from the BH Dazzle Mini Kit. I love it because of its little bit of gold accents. I added a few pink accents to go with the sunset photo and to tie in to the other side of the spread.

The girls had a birthday sleepover over the weekend. The boys camped out in the loft and had so much fun. They watched Star Wars ALL night and had popcorn. I got to scrapbook all night, listening to the sounds of light sabers.

Also I started to buy more fruits and vegetables. I snapped a photo at the grocery store and I love it.  Most of the cards and some of the embellishments are from the Studio Calico PL kit.

The last thing is the series of the sunset. We watched the sun go down and I took some photos. I added three photos down the right side. I also added numbers to show the progress of the sunset.

A close up of the journaling card.

Moving onto the second page. A fun photo of Noah at the grocery store. As the journaling says, I am sooooo going to miss this.

A look at the right side. The big photo is just about a daily ritual for the two of them. Katelyn can do her math homework by herself but I always have Patrick look it over and the two of them talk about it. I love that he can actually look at her homework and walk her through it. Me, not so much. I have to stare at it for about 30 minutes to figure it out ! Ha Ha.

A closer look at a photo and a journaling card.

One last close up.  Me and Maddie made daddy a love package and surprised him with it at work.

That's a wrap for week 6. Now I am off to get some scrapbooking done. Deadlines are coming ! Hopefully I can share another PL week with you soon while I am here on vacation.

Have a great rest of your weekend.

Summer Nights

Summer is in full swing around here. I can't believe we are in the middle of July already.

One of the things that I love about Summer are our family swim nights. They usually will take place on the weekends, but during the week is fair game as well. I have an insert to share with you today all about this topic. 

Typically my Project Life Spreads are weekly. Every once in a while I like to throw in an event or themed/story insert. It is definitely something that I enjoy. The matching of colors, the longer stories I can tell, the same themed pictures, ect. 

Here is the front side of the insert.

The Studio Calico Project Life kit is one that I have purchased monthly for many, many years now. I love the variety and lots of fun embellishments that I get to play with every month.

I chose to go with some yellow, blue, and you will see I threw a little bit of pink in the mix on the other side. I also added some gold accents here and there.

This summer card is from the SC kit and I added some gold paint using a silk screen from a Ali Edwards craft your story kit.

 I really wanted to stay simple with this one for a few reasons. One being time, I still have a few holes in my 2015 PL album to tackle. But in the end I am super happy how this turned out.

Another close up and a photo.

The "currently" acrylic piece came in the SC PL kit, and I have been thinking about how to use it until this project came up. How fun is it though, right ?!!

I added an Ali Edwards brush underneath it.

Let's move onto the second page. Sorry, this one didn't want to photograph real well.

I added a 4x6 journaling card to tell some more of the story. The " Story " word is part of the Ali Edwards silk screen.

I added two filler cards to this side of the insert.

The circle wood veneer is from Colorcast Designs. You can find all of her amazing stuff here on her website.

Here are a few photos

I added a brush from this newer brush from Ali Edwards.

One last close up before I wrap up.

Thanks for coming today everybody. I have to go now, I am off for a mini road trip down by the beach.

A few days later the kids and I are going for a long stay at my parents. I am excited for some exciting adventuring, summer style.

Until next time.
