Project Life Week 14

I finally found some time to finish another week in my PL album. Week 24 was a HUGE week. A beach road trip, shopping for clothes, tramp, and a swingset, and easter weekend !! Oh boy.  But I did it and I tried to go a little bit simple this week.

I absolutely loved the colors of this week. It was a lot of blues and yellows with a little pink thrown in at the end.



Used this brush

There was a playground right on the beach and the kids were in heaven. Having the water and a playground so close together.

Used this brush.


For this one I took a foldable journaling card and journaled on it first. And then added my embellishments.   I choose this card because I needed the extra room to journal about why we went down to Ventura and what we did while we were there.

The star is from October Afternoon 9-5. April sticker from little yellow bicycle. And the #2 is from Tim Holtz.

I used a picture that I took of the beach to journal on and I love the effect. So fun and simple.

This one I wanted to make sure that I linked the picture and the journaling card. So I used the arrow from Studio Calico and outlined it with my black pen to make it stand out. "THE VIEW" was awesome by the way !! I could have lived there, at least for a little while.

I wanted to do some traditional pages about our beach trip. So I ended up doing a 1 page and then a 2 page layout with some of the pictures from our trip.  I just love that the colors were similar and this is how it looked in the book.

Here is a look at the scrapbook page. I scraplifted it from Kelly Noel here. Although I added some things just to make it mine ! Most of the supplies were from my Studio Calico kit.

I also did a 2 page layout but it is in at the scrapbook store as my design team entry for the next term. On the other side of the 2 pager was a very simple layout I did about Easter Sunday.


I added 1 insert this week. I took Design C and cut off the other side of the 4x6's. Added the tab from October Afternoon 9-5.


Brush is from the Cobalt Digital Extra Elements. 

We went to a park on the beach where they had an actual zip line. The kids loved it and rode it again, and again.

In the middle of the two photos I added a journaling space by using a foldable journaling card. I printed on both sides and then added my simple embellishments.



Used the Ali Edwards Go Outside brush. Cut up one of the brushes and added ocean to the end.



Bought an IMac. My first one, although Patrick has his Macbook.

Bought the tramp for the backyard. An early Easter present to the kids.  Plus I couldn't pass up the  great sale !!

The easter bunny brought these two cuties for the girls. They HOP and WALK by themselves. They had fun racing them in the backyard.

Made a white boxed layer and reduced the opacity so that it was more transparent. Used this Ali Edwards Everday Journaling Prompts Brush.


All the embellishments from October Afternoon 9-5.

The wood camera is from Studio Calico, I inked it blue to match better. So simple and fun.

Noah got new spiderman shoes this week.  It is his current obsession.

Wanted to add some of the clothing tags from our shopping trips this week.

And that is it for Week 14. Now it is on to Week 15.

** Also, this week is my Brothers wedding. So I will be back next week sometime after all the festivities.  So excited to see family and see my brother tie the knot !! *** 

P.S. Thanks again for being patient with me and the old blog. Hopefully someday soon I can go back to the regular schedule. Until then, enjoy your summer.
