Project Life Week 23

Just a reminder that I am skipping week 22. As you might remember that I mentioned that I took a total of 3 pictures that whole week so I decided to just skip it and move on.

Now onto week 24. This week was about our trip down to San Pedro.

THE FIRST PAGE :

School's out and its time to hit the beach !!  


THE PICTURES :

On the way down to San Pedro me and the kids spent the day in Disneyland.

Brush is a freebie from Vegas Girl found here. Changed the color of the brush to match my weeks colors. The arrow is from Ali Edwards found here.


Spent our mornings poolside and this is what my view was like. Not to bad huh !!

Brush from Ali Edwards found here.


THE JOURNALING CARDS :

LEFT SIDE : Used this cute journaling card freebie from Persnickety Prints. Found here. Changed the colors of the card to match. Added the butterfly from Studio Calico.

RIGHT SIDE : This is what Noah did most of the time while he was in the pool. Just hung out on the step and splashed.


LEFT SIDE : Quote from Katelyn while at Disneyland.  Arrow from October Afternoon 9 -5.

RIGHT SIDE : The sun is from Studio Calico. It is a mistable which means you can mist it or ink it to change its color. So fun to play with. Added the chipboard peice on top from MME. And under it all is some travel transparency.


THE LAST PAGE : Aquarium/Beach.


THE PICTURES : I guess I didn't save the other two pictures. Oh well.

This beauty was in one of the many tanks at the little aquarium in the town of San Pedro. 


Took some inspiration from Ali Edwards on this one. Sticker over the text is from My Minds Eye.


I also did a layout for a design team assignment that I will put in the middle of this week when I get it back from the store. It has some more pictures and journaling about our trip.

THE JOURNALING CARDS:

LEFT SIDE :  All these little swim/beach stickers that I used throughout this week are from Echo Park.

RIGHT SIDE: Noah was so funny when he got into the sharks head. He had watched the girls go first and act like they were being eaten by the shark so when it was his turn he was ready. He looks scared right ?!! 


LEFT SIDE :

Cut a strip of paper for the top of the card and then added a thin layer of washi tape. Added the stickers and the cute little starfish from Michaels.

RIGHT SIDE : Journaling about the beach.


And that is it for week 24. I've got 25 half way done and will continue to work on some more so that I can share it with you soon. 

If you haven't checked out Becky Higgins site lately you should. Last week was their birthday celebration and she has some WAY cute journaling freebies for all us. Yeah !! They are all so cute and are going to make an appearance in my album very soon.

Here is the link LIFE QUOTE CARDS

Also is anyone taking Becky's Class over at Big Picture Classes. I really, really, really wanted to but just couldn't do it at this time. I hope she does it again so I can participate next time if the finances are available.  Let me know what you think if you are !!

Now I am off to catch up on some of my t.v. shows. I just love fall. Fall brings all my favorite shows back on t.v. And some new ones to check out as well.  I have also been watching reruns of Supernatural on Netflix. I started from the beginning and am now on the beginning of season 3, the beginning of the "War". Wow !! Crazy stuff. Anyways, take care everyone.

Love the shark photo :) I've added weeks together when I only had a few photos in one of my weeks and that worked fine too. Thanks for sharing your week with us.

I ♥ ♥ ♥ your pages every single week.

You add such cute embellishments, but it never looks busy or overcrowded. Your pages always look neat and clean but adorable.

Thanks for sharing! :)

Your pages are incredible. Agree with the other commenters. These are professional quality. Wow. I'm working on mine and need to look at YOURS for inspiration! I love Ali, too. Great style. I found you on Pinterest. Isn't it awesome to be pinned? (Not that I would know, but it must be!) Thanks for taking the time to share! Keep it up!

Forgot to say I'm doing PRL and I'm loving it, the community of people who all love the same thing, the inspiring videos make you think about what you are doing of in my case Not doing.

Love the inspiration from the forum and the gallery. I bet you see a lot of PL posts from other blogs with their pages from class in there too.

I was lucky enough to get birthday money that paid for my class. Hope she does another one so you can join that one.

Thanks for you feedback about the PRL class. I really wish I could have done it, because I know that I would have loved it. Hopefully next time if there is a next time. Thanks for letting me know !
