Project Life Week 37

Happy Monday everybody !

I am here with you today to share my Project Life Week 37. I worked on it last week and finished it up yesterday. I went with more of a simple approach this time and I am totally okay with that. It is done, documented and now in the album. All in all, I LOVE the stories that are in this week.

Here is a look at both pages.

I combined the August and September Studio Calico kits for most of this week.

I added the blue star and the letters to spell out SEPT to the title card from the Studio Calico kit. I also added the dates and a few enamel dots also from the kit.

I seem to spend a lot of time typing these days. Or at least at the computer. I am not complaining at all, I love it. I decided to take a photo to remember.

I added an Ali Edwards brush to the top of the keyboard. You can find it here in her digital shop.

Here is a look at a journaling card about making some extra pages for a PL creative team assignment. Also a photo of Noah writing his spelling words on the patio.

The yellow journaling card is from one of the SC kits. I added a few embellishments and a fun title to the card. This is one of my favorite things to do on my journaling cards. It adds that little bit of personal touch and also helps to remember what that particular story is all about.

Speaking of stories. Week 37, which was last week, I decided to have all the kids write their spelling words out on the patio with chalk for a little change of scenery. It worked and the kids loved it.

I have been binge watching season 8 ( I am almost done) of Supernatural on Netflix while I scrapbook, fold laundry, ect. It has been fun and I am trying to get caught up so I can watch the new season. Which is season 11 I believe.

I found a photo from online and printed it out.

A fun photo of Noah spelling his words out.

Let's move on to the second page. I did not take a ton of photos in week 37. So I used a Design F page protector and sliced off the last row.

The top photo was taken one night while we were outside enjoying the cooler temperatures. I layered two different digital brushes from the AM/PM set from Ali Edwards. You can find it here.  I used the PM Routine card from Ali Edwards Story Kit, the AM/PM kit.

I journaled about our newly PM routine as it has been evolving. It involves ice cream cones, a round of tag, swimming, swinging on the swing set, and catching the sunsets together.

Here are a few close ups.

One last close up.

Katelyn has been asking for an ice cream cone every night after dinner. I took a bunch of photos of Katelyn with her ice cream cone but this one was my favorite. A non typical non smiling photo.

The last two journaling card are both from the SC PL kits. I added a few embellishments to them and a few stamps and called it good.

One of them talks about not feeling the excitement of the new school season. The other one has a few High Fives from the week.

That is a wrap for week 37. Have a great day everyone !

Let's Hit The Road

Hello everyone !!

I'm back with you today sharing a few pages that were part of the Becky Higgins Creative Team inspiration for August. You can find all of the Creative Teams pages and inspiration on Becky's Blog Post Here.

Let's get started shall we.

Back in August, right before me and the kids went on vacation, I booked us a hotel room down by the beach in Ventura. It was kind of a last minute let's go for the weekend kind of a thing ! I love those kind don't you.

Here is a look at both sides.

I decided to stay simple. The title card is from the Midnight edition. Most of the other cards are from the September Skies edition.

The first day we drove down to the beach, parked the car and then started walking down to the water. The skies were not looking so inspiring at the time but we thought we would be safe. Well, on our way down to the water it started sprinkling, then a total downpour. We all got drenched ! Thank goodness for hotel laundry is all I can say.

After getting all wet we drove over to the hotel to check in. The rain continued all afternoon and we hung out in the hotel room. Eventually the rain did settle down and I took the kids down to the pool for a swim.

The next day was beautiful. The sun came out to say hi, and we were so grateful.

While down by the beach we happened upon some family sized bicycles for rent. We rented one for an hour. We had a whole ton of family fun, making memories. That is what it's all about. All the kids
took a turn driving and it was sure a great workout.

I printed out this 4x6 journaling card from the Stampin Up Moments Like These collection.

Here are a few close ups. This card is from the September Skies collection.

Noah thought he was super cool in the drivers seat.

A few fun filler cards also from the September Skies collection and a picture from the beach.

On our drive down we stopped on the side of the road to check directions. It happened to be across the road from an orange orchard. What's a girl to do ?!  Well you get your big camera out and go snap a few pictures of course.

I used Design A and Design G page protectors for this project. I am so happy that I got the chance to get these memories documented using Project Life.
