Project Life 2013: Week 25

It is so nice to be back sharing my Project Life pages with all of you!  I took quite a long break from blogging and Project Life.  The release of the new editions through Hobby Lobby really got me excited again to work on my weekly pages.  I’m not sure yet how I will be sharing my pages, but decided this week to just jump in with the current week.  It was quite the week with a forrest fire that started 5 miles from our house, Hailey’s interview for private school, and a trip to Bearizona and Flagstaff.

I used the Honey edition this week along with multiple journaling cards and accents from Finding Nana!  My love for all of Leena’s goodies did not diminish one bit while I was on hiatus.

Chris and I started taking guitar lessons together this week.  This has been something we have talked about doing since we first got married in 1997.  Better late than never!  I also put a picture of the fire from our back deck.  It was so eery to see all that smoke and the flames that close to our house.

Last Thursday we made arrangements to go see my friend, Heather in Flagstaff on her way through town.  We decided to stop at a drive-thru wildlife park, Bearizona, on our way up.  You can read all about our visit HERE.

Like I mentioned above, all the little accent pieces (smile, the memo circle, the remember tag, and 3 of the journal cards) came from Finding Nana’s shop.  I have all 3 sets of labels (Take Note, Daily Memory, and On the Road Labels).

I took quite a few pictures at Bearizona, so I included a flip-up protector in order to add the additional pictures.  This was definitely a picture heavy week with all we had going on and I had already scaled back on the dozens of pictures I took.

Well there you have it!  It felt so great to be back in my craft space, printing out pictures, journaling about our week, and telling our story!

Project Life: Week 10

It’s that time again! I had fun working on my project life pages this week with my sister who came up for the weekend.  It was fun to have a partner in crime.  I’m going to hop right to my pages this week as we are currently spending some time at the “happiest place on earth”!  So excited to have a few days away thanks to a fabulous military special on 3-day park hopper passes & my folks who gave us a ton of Hilton points!

Below is a view of my pages with an envelope insert that I included this week. Skylar had a really tough day on Thursday and I wanted to share some of my thoughts about it privately.

Here is a view without the envelope insert.

I kept it pretty simple this week. We left on Sunday for California so I knew that I needed to get it done & photographed.  Here is the left page.

My sister came up to Prescott on Saturday afternoon & we took all the kids up to feed the ducks. I took my good Canon dslr camera & just snapped away.  When I uploaded the pictures and saw this one of Skylar & Sam, I knew that I wanted to do another enlarged photo like the one I did here. I added a simple digital element by Ali Edwards. Here is a closer look.

Here is the right side of the layout.

Here is a close-up view of the flip-up protector.

Hailey worked on a project about David Crockett for several months and this past week everything was due & she performed her speech for the Living History Museum.  It was really neat & I was super proud of her.

Well there you have it!  As always I appreciate any comments & I’m happy to answer any questions you might have.  Gotta run as the kids are practically pulling me out the hotel room door to get back to the park!

I’m linking up with The Mom Creative and One Happy Mama.  Head over and see all the wonderful layouts people are creating!

I hope you all have a wonderful week!
