I am so excited to have finished up another week of PL ! It's been done for a few days, but just haven't had time to photograph and blog about it until now.
By the way, Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers, grandmothers out there. (even though I am a day late).
I have to apologize about the recent bad photos of my layouts. I know they have never been great, but lately I have noticed that they are just horrible. UHHH !! So I really need to work on that, maybe try a different photo taking spot or something. Anyways. Here goes Week 11.
A little run down. Grandma and Grandpa were still here for half of the week, so lots of them in the first part of the week. Also had a birthday party.
HERE IS THE FIRST PAGE :
THE PICTURES :
Grandma and Grandpa went and visited Katelyn's school and then brought her home.
Made a journaling block and made it sort of see through by reducing the opacity of the journaling block. The Today you brush from here.
The kids love to read to grandpa and grandma or get read to by either one of them.
Katelyn loves to ask Grandpa to get the kite out and go flying. I used a transparency from My Minds Eye - one of their new lines - and put it over the photo. Also took so of the lyrics from the famous song and put them on the picture before I printed it.
THE JOURNALING CARDS :
LEFT SIDE : Journaled about them going to the school. Also needed more more so I continued the journaling on the back side. Great way to utilize space.
RIGHT SIDE : Used another picture of the kite flying activities.
LEFT SIDE : I hate to admit it but me and the MAC are still having printing issues !! ACKK ! I know. So it resulted in small text on this card. I had already but some of the embellishments on the card and did not want to redo the whole thing. So I am going to forgive and forget.
I used one of the chipboard kites My Minds Eye.
RIGHT SIDE : Maddie wanted a picture of her and her GAMA. She is so cute. She can say grandma correctly now but still calls her GAMA.
As I mentioned earlier, we had a birthday party for Maddie. I choose to use one of the templates from Cathy Z, click here to find it, and change it up a little bit to suit my needs. The template allowed me to save some time and it still looks great.
HERE IS THE INSERT:
THE SECOND PAGE :
THE PICTURES :
Caught Noah playing with the water. The heart tag is from Studio Calico, but could easily be duplicated. Want to remember to do it myself. I put a strip of one of the filler card underneath the hearts. The banner is from My Minds Eye.
With this picture I wanted to capture a little bit of what we usually do if someone is sick. Take temperatures and get red boxes.
Wanted to be a little playful with these overlays from My Minds Eye for a while now. Printed my journaling onto patterened paper and then put the overlay on top. The favorite stamp is from Heidi Swapp. Buttons are from My Minds Eye.
Some of my favorite boys. Out enjoying themselves.
THE JOURNALING CARDS :
LEFT SIDE : Saved the bag from Trader Joes. Lemon and hearts from Jillibean Soup. Washi tape.
LEFT SIDE : Tag from Maya Road.
RIGHT SIDE : Thickers and used my new heart punch and some patterned paper. The arrow stamp from My Minds Eye Oh Happy Days stamp set.
That's it for Week 11. I really like this week. Clean, and simple. Going to keep this theme for a little while so that I can try to catch up. How is everyone else's album coming along ? Good I hope.
Did anyone else catch Becky's video chat this morning ? Kind of fun. Had it on while doing this and that.
So super excited about all the new plastics that are coming out soon. Can't wait.
I have been working on finishing up a layout for my design team assignment. I will try to share tomorrow. Take care everyone.
