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: Weeks 23 through 27

Hello all my Project Life friends!  It’s good to be back sharing my layouts of our weekly life with you.  I am still doing project life, but I am a few weeks behind.  I’ve had these layouts done for awhile but have not had many moments to sit down and blog.  I was finally able to photograph several weeks worth of layouts and wanted to share those with you today.  Just to forewarn you, it is picture heavy so I will try to keep it light on the words!

Week 23

I added several of Ali’s digital overlays to my instagram pictures and I loved using several of the flair buttons from Finding Nana.

Week 24

As you can see, week 24 has a black and white theme going on.  Honestly, this is my least favorite layout in my project life album so far.  I’m not going to re-do it, I’m just going to move on and remember that I really like my layouts with more color.

Week 25

On Thursday of week 25 we were notified that Skylar’s Adaptive Bike was finished (you can read about it here).  Just a few moments later we got word of the loss of one of our dearest friends.  I shared my personal journaling of finding out about his death in our layout.  I placed it under a flip-up protector to keep it private.

Week 26

I used a lot of Ali’s digital overlays this week.  I love adding them to enlarged photos and she has so many really great sayings that are perfect for this week’s pictures.

The picture of Skylar in her mask cracked me up and the saying “This is so you” was perfect for that shot!

The cloud and bicycle journaling cards came from here.  The “enjoy the ride” card came from this awesome set.  And the “ride with me” flair button was again from Finding Nana.  I LOVE her flair buttons, just in case you couldn’t tell!

I will also be including a separate insert including pictures, details, & thoughts about the funeral of our friend.  Honestly, I have just not felt up to putting that together yet.

Week 27

The “love you” card came from this set that I linked to earlier in the post.

If you are still with me, you deserve a gold star!!  Thanks for checking out my layouts.

If you are here from The Mom Creative then welcome!  If you aren’t, you should head over HERE and check out all the awesome layouts by other Project Lifers.
