Project Life Week 11

I took a little road trip this past weekend and took my mother back to her house. We miss you grandma. Or should I say gamma (that is what Maddie calls her). We also attended for a short time a charity crop that we had signed up for months and months ago and it was so fun. It really turned out to be a great weekend despite all the driving. The getaway was exactly what I needed to recharge my batteries and get ready to pack up the house and move into our new home next week. We should be closing next Monday the 16th. So excited.

Anyways I finished up some of my project life weeks and have one to show you all. Now this is the one that I gave you a sneak peak on earlier. But it is all done now and I added two extra pages for the week. Here is side 1

 The first picture is of the kids saying goodbye to daddy as he was off to Wyoming to go and do his second interview.

Since the weather has been nice the kids have ventured outside and Katelyn rediscovered an old bone that she calls her dinosaur bone !!

The little picture and then the next picture were from Patrick's trip to Wyoming.

The next picture is of Katelyn and her worm. This girl loves bugs, and she is not afraid to pick them up, play with them, ect. She loves it !! Maddie on the other hand would not touch it.

Here is the first side of the extra page. Paul and Tona, I hope you don't mind this being posted.

This is some pictures that my inlaws sent to us from Greece. They are serving an LDS mission on the Island of Cyprus, Greece.  I used one of Ali Edwards long journalers and resized it to a 6x12 page. I printed the journaling on it and then printed the pictures to go on top, like a hybrid page.

Here is the second extra page.

This is an iphone picture that Patrick took while out in Wyoming for his job interview. They took them out to a job site at 3:30 in the morning so that they could experience what it was like. I asked Patrick to write about his experience that day and added it to the bottom of the photo. I think it turned out great.

Here is side 2

The first photo is of Katelyn's dance recital. Her class was through the community center, she had so much fun and I hope they have some of the same kinds of programs here in California. She is the tiny dancer on the very far right of the picture.

The next picture is of Katelyn's cereal bowl the morning on St. Patrick's day. The night before I had put some green food coloring in the milk and turned it green. The girls were so excited to find green milk in the fridge and came running in to tell me that we had a leprechaun come and change our milk green !! So fun. And of course they had to have lucky charms on St. Patrick's day !! The little picture is of Katelyn all decked out in her green right before school.

The next picture is of a drawing that Maddie did for me. She brought it to me that day and said that she had drawn it for the scrapbook, so in it went for the Picture of the day. So cute huh !! It is of Rudolph.

The next picture is of the first blooming flowers in our yard. I just love to see blooming flowers because that means that spring is coming and warmer weather.

That is it for Week 11 and I have one more thing to share with you today. Before I left for the weekend I was busy making two scrapbook layouts for the California State Fair. I have been entering in the Utah StateFair(and done really well) the past three years and thought that it would be fun to enter into the California State Fair as well. We shall see how this year goes and maybe I'll enter next year as well. It is kind of a pain because I had to mail my entrees in to the fair. I'm not sure it is going to worth it but we shall see. I think they turned out really cute, especially the first one. Here they are. Click on the picture to make it larger. What do you think ?

Here is the second one
It is late and I need to go to bed now. Thanks for looking. Take care now.

Your album is so incredible! LOVE your extra pages. The layouts for the state fair look great! You have a wonderful style - I wish we were closer and could scrap together - you totally inspire me! Glad your move is going well and things are heading into a good direction for your family. Life looks really great in your PL album! Keep up the good work. Now I'm off to work on my PL - you've given me more great ideas~
