Project Life Week 28

Another week done and in the book. This week was spent in Utah with my parents. Visits to the Dinosaur Museum, the Zoo, Wheeler Farm, and just hanging out. Visiting family and friends. Lots of good stuff. So I have planned a one page layout and two - two page layouts to add to this week. One of them I have done and I will share. But the others are in the works. Sorry for the bad pictures. It has been rainy and cloudy here.

Here is the first page :

The pictures are here :

The museum was hosting a pirate night. We went on a treasure hunt, earned treasure, and made pirate hats.

They have a magnetic wall at the museum that you can make your own dinosaur.

Pirate treasure.

Journaling cards :

For this one I found a tree clipart added it to the card. Put the journaling circle on top, added journaling and printed. The circle came from here. This site mentioned in the last post is full of free pdf's that can be printed or added to your journaling cards.

They dressed some of the dinosaurs up in pirate gear.

This card talks about our week at grandmas house. The journaling label can be found here. The getaway word on the label is part of a set of words found here. 

This one is a card on a sheet of pdf's that I sized to fit the journaling card space. Found on this page here. Added some free pirate clip art.

This is a 12x12 layout that I did about my daughter Maddie. The template with the questions on is from Cathy Z at designer digitals. Added the heart and the love you from Ali Edwards love embellishments kit. Used some Fancy Pants paper and stickers that I had in my stash.

I had found some free actions for photoshop and decided to try them out on these pictures of Maddie. Here is the link to the page where I downloaded the action. Never used actions before and still want to find some good ones.

The second page :

This picture is of Maddie in the corn field at Wheeler Farm.The brush is from Ali Edwards You word art. I just used some of the brush and not all and moved the pieces around to fit my picture better.

A picture of grandpa and Maddie on the wagon at Wheeler Farm. Added a circle tag from this website  that I printed out and then cut around the circle and added it onto the picture.

Iphone picture of the cousins together. Two live in Montana and three live in California. Just happened to be in Utah at the same time.

The kids had a major water fight in the hot tub one day. Maddie's face cracks me up, she is ready for battle.

The Journaling cards:

Tickets from the Zoo in the first slot.

That week I got a letter in the mail that said that both of my layouts received 2nd place in the California State Fair !!  See the orange on the card, yeah Noah was trying to "HELP" me !! Oh well, that is real life. It was all done and I was not about to do it again !!  Added the slip of paper that came with the letter on the journaling card.

I used the journaling label that is on the top from this page . Changed the color in photoshop. Added an outlined memory brush from Ali Edwards. Cut it up and seperated it and colored in one of the words. Love the look. I printed out the label and put in on my card. The word cousins is from Ali Edwards family word set.

Maddie with a messy hand at grandma's house. I think it was from raspberries.  Can't remember for sure.

Still am working on the two extra layouts to add to this week. Love how I can still do my layouts that I love to do and just add them straight into my album.

Plan on doing a post about some great links, freebies, and other great things that you can use in your PL album early next week. Stay tuned. Hope your weekend was great !!

This looks wonderful! I really like the circle tag you added--thanks for linking to it too.

I am Project Life obsessed now--LOL! Really, spending every second of my free (ha ha) time on it the last few weeks. Determined to finish this year up on time and make the most of next year's album week by week.

Looking forward to your post next week. Thank you for all the time and effort you put into sharing!
