Project Life Week 19

Hi there!  I hope you all have had a great week so far.  I’m so glad to be back this week with my project life layout for Week 19 and also my layout for Week 18.  It felt great to be back in my creative space.  If you are here from The Mom Creative, welcome!  If not, hop on over to her site and check out all the project life goodness!

So let’s just jump right into it, shall we?  Below is a shot of the entire Week 19 spread.

I was definitely feeling more color this week!  I used the cardstock from the Clementine paper pack that was 50% off last week.  I LOVE this paper!  I included my usual picture and ticket stub from this week’s movie.  This week I enjoyed going to the movie with my friends Dawn and Kristine.  I got the “Tuesday” card from this shop.  I love their shop!  I bought the days of the week journal cards and badges.  My stuff came packaged so cute and just made me smile when I opened my mail!

I stamped “Note To Self” and “Week in Review” and then cut them out and added them to my paper.  I got the stamps from Nicole’s etsy shop.  I used a very old transparency that I had from My Minds Eye for the pictures of my dogs.  Loved adding something a little different.

I also printed off the cover of the book I read this week.  In It To Win It was written by my new friend Morgan Kearns.  When she told me that she wrote Romance Novels, I wasn’t sure what to think.  I bought the first book, Fade to Black, and was so surprised by what a great writer she is!  I read In It To Win It this week and have bought the third book, Out of Left Field, on my Kindle to read this week.  If you like romance novels I promise that you will love these!  They are not smut novels!  Her characters have lots of depth and she had wonderful plot development!  She did not ask me to plug her book, but I always want to support independent business women.  She lives here in our small, little town and is as real as they come!  LOVE HER!

Here are the pictures of my layout from Week 18.  Not as much color, but I still love them!

I used lots of paper clips and the Martha Stewart labels for my journaling.  Can’t get enough of those office supplies!

I loved this simple picture below of Skylar looking through my project life album.  I love that she spent a long time flipping through the album and then she said “Mom! I love your picture book!”  This is why I do project life!

Well there you have it!  Two more weeks done & documented!  Don’t forget to check out The Mom Creative and all the wonderful project life layouts that are linked up there.

I hope you all have a wonderful week!

Make it great!

Project Life: Week 18 in Pictures!

Well hello there!  This past week was crazy, but oh so good!  I’m spring cleaning this week and I am up to my eyeballs in dust & clutter. I did not do my actual project life pages this week as I want to finish spring cleaning my upstairs before I host my bunco group on Thursday evening.  I also ran out of a couple of colors of ink that I need to pick up this weekend.  I do however, want to share some pictures with you!

My ultimate goal in spring cleaning is to reduce the clutter, really get the house good & clean, and ultimately do this:

It feels so good to get rid of stuff that I don’t need!  Take a look at what my master bathroom looked liked after we took everything out of my closet.

I love that I stopped to snap a picture of my mess!  Project Life has really encouraged me to take pictures of real life!  I bought some new, non-toxic cleaning supplies last week.  I am trying to be more “green” and regular cleaning supplies are just not good for you!

Here are a couple shots of my craft room currently.  It is such a mess!  When I am completely done with the overhaul, I will post pictures of my organization.

Despite the total mess in my craft area, I was able to have some creative time last week.  It was teacher appreciation week at Hailey’s school and I made a cute, little school supply box for her teacher.  I got this idea years ago from the Eighteen25 blog.  LOVE their blog!!

I also bought these stamps from the very lovely Nicole!  You can see them in her shop here.  I can’t wait to use them on my pages this week!

I was thrilled to chaperone Hailey’s field trip down to Phoenix on Wednesday.  The entire 5th grade was responsible for running “Biztown”.  It was a functioning city.  We had business loans and paychecks.  Hailey was the CFO of the Wellness Center and she was responsible for paying all the bills, payroll, & making deposits at the bank.  She did AWESOME!

Skylar was home for a couple of days with a rash that ended up not being contagious.  After a couple days of Benadryl-induced drowsiness, TLC by mom, and saying “I hate itchy bumps!” a thousand times, we were good to go!

One of the days she was home she spent looking at my Project Life album.  She giggled, read aloud, and remarked several times “I love this picture book!”

And last, but not least, I enjoyed a morning wrestling with this furry one!  He totally cracks me up!  We have always remarked how Jack must be a human trapped in a dog’s body.  He has the most personality.  I’m pretty sure he is laughing at me here!

I hope all of you had a great week!  If you are here from The Mom Creative, welcome!!  If not, head on over to The Mom Creative and check out all of the Project Life goodness that can be found there.
