Project life | Week 17

Really enjoy project life.  It fits for me right now, It's as quick as
you want it to be or as complicated.  Below is  pic of my week.
 I pulled out my silhouette cutter this week as well.
I cut out the hello real life, my bitty kitty's name and the 
word love on the page below.  The top left I printed
a map I found online of the Boston bombing manhunt
since it took up most of the news this week. 
 The top left is a project life kraft edition digital journal card
I thought the mustache was soooo cute.  I journaled about how 
many miles I did this week on the treadmill.  I was really
proud of myself this week, hitting the three mile mark twice and
2.8 miles the remaining two times.
 Another moment this week was that Richard got a
iPhone and he texted me.  That is a big step for him.
I used a wood chip bubble on the pic of his text message.
To the right of this pic is a place card I made with some 
scrap paper, a little bit photo love and a wood heart.
 The right side has my title card, a few other pics and two
journaling cards.  I didn't have enough pics this week so
I journaled more than usual.
 My title card has number stickers and a flower
I made from gathered fabric that i sewed together. 
The favorite word title cut with my silhouette.
I watched a you tube video on welding words &
cut it out myself. Was a lot of fun.

We babysat Pepper this weekend. 
I used letter  stickers on the pic for the title
stapling her name and Saturday on the
bottom left was stamped using a Citrus Twist
stamp I received in my kit this month.
Over all love my week.

China | Page Four

Finally finished this page this morning.  It took me the entire week to get it done. But love how it turned out.  I know Tommy would prefer not that I put his pics on the web but tough, I am proud of my layout and want to share.  Only 26 pages to go!!

Project Life | Week 16

Been keeping up on my Project Life these past couple of weeks.   
Week 16  
I again didn't do a full digital side as I had a lot
of little tidbits to use.

 A closer look at the left side is below.
I did utilize a lot of digital titles/journaling
on my pictures this week.

The homemade title is digital  and the goodness
is stickers.
 I was one picture short so I made a little placement card
out of red polka dot paper, stamped with a studio calico stamp,
added some washi tape and a little camera sticker I found.

I like the versatility I have with using digital elements to add
titles or  journaling.


 The right side is above.  I again used thickers for the 
numbers on my title card which I have done each week.
The pink heart is a heidi swapp product placed on a place card
from the blush edition project life kit.
I used letter stickers on the picture of my budda hand plant.
Had some fun with my meatball title and I stamped the
date with a date stamp.

Below I used some letter stickers on Pepper's pic, sewing across the
stickers to keep them in place.

Project Life | Week 15

Decided this week to do all traditional week with no Digital page.


I did have fun making an april journal card for one of the pockets
that I share on my facebook page.

Cut out the Friday frame from Ali Edwards 
Hello Life Boxes found at Designer Digitals with my 
Silhouette.  Ali has a tutorial on her website
on how to make a cut file from he digital files.


I did a little more digital words on the photos
along with chipboard stickers.


Still enjoying the creative time documenting
my life.

Hunter | Grad Pics

Its no secret that I am a busy person and I love photography and life art.  Its also no secret that with my busy life, I only have a handful of really good friends.  Not by choice, just by lifestyle.

One of my longest friends is Debbie or Debbie Sue as I like to call her. 


She has always "gotten me".  She NEVER ever asks for anything and I always know I can count on her if I need something. But like Debbie I NEVER ask.    So I just say "when do you want me to take hunter's grad pics?"

Last weekend was the day.  He is such a handsome guy and I got a few " good ones"   Enjoy them!

Project Life| Week 10-14

With working on the wedding book, I got a few weeks behind on project life. 
I had some time this weekend to get all my thoughts/pics
into my book.

Week 10
 I did a digital right side and traditional left side below

Week 11

 I had a an insert this week along with a fun door hanger
from a hotel we stayed at in LA that I cut up
and stuck in the book.
 Again I did traditional side on the right above
and Digital side on the left.
 Loving bright colors and obviously SPRING!
 Week 12 above with another insert from my women's
handgun class.  I used a shamrock as my title
slot this week and since I was playing catch up I did
one week
 I am trying to hand journal more, even though I hate my
own writing.
 Week 13 above.  Target practice has been a constant
these last few weeks.  Makes my husband happy.

Week 14 below
sorry little blurry for some reason
I am still mixing digital words on pics coupled with
chipboard and thickers. Also digging through stash
to find little do-dads like the good time sticker

The title card is from my citrus twist project life kit.
I found a felt bunny sticker, used some old chipboard that
I sewed across for the yum and a Heidi swapp heart that 
I sprayed with spray ink for the bloom heart.
I made homemade ricotta for my lasagna and thought the arrows
were fun to mark the process.  As always I seem to always have food
pictures as Richard likes to see them in my book.  

This is my third year and I am still loving the process.
