Project Life Open House Week

Well hello again !! I know it has been forever since I have posted here on the old blog. A lot has happened in our lives recently that has been keeping us very busy. More on that to come.

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving week/weekend. It was more like a holiday week here. Patrick had the week off and his parents came down for a visit. It was fabulous to have them here in our home. 

I wanted to share another PL week that is now done. It has been done for a while now, but haven't had a chance to share it yet.

Instead of doing a normal week I filled it, and an insert, with a very full and fun day. My brother got married this past June and we had an Open House at my parents house to celebrate with all our friends and family. So I had a ton of pictures from that particular day but not very many from the week of. I love how it turned out !! Seriously. In Love. Anyways, sorry. I will get on with the sharing now.

Here is the first page :

The title card. I wanted to make a big point about this being the open house so I used the big letters and put the date at the bottom.

Pictures :

This was the party scene in my parents back yard the night of the party. I love this shot because you can get the whole picture of how the party looked.

Party Decor.

Here is a look at the journaling cards :

The card on the left hand side is one of the foldable journaling cards. I needed a bigger space to tell the whole story of what happened that week.

The card on the right hand side is a simple one. I wanted to include a card about the colors that we used for the party. 

A simple journaling card and a picture finishes off the first page.

I had so many pictures that I included one insert. Here is a look at the first page.

Journaling cards:

The first journaling card I added the letters down at the bottom. The quote bubble came from my Studio Calico kit. I simply added the bubble and then worked out where to put my journaling. Printed it and then added my embellishments.

The right side. I used some patteren paper, I forget where I got that, and added the word "Photo" from Ali Edwards.  The pink letters are from October Afternoon. The arrow is from Studio Calico. I wanted to make a point to have people notice the photo of the kids at our homemade photo booth.

Here is a look at the other side. Icluded are more pictures from the photo booth, and people.

Here is a closer look at the journaling cards.

The card on the right is from Becky Higgins Blog. Under Free Stuff. Here is the link. Look under Project Life. Although I colored the card to fit my needs. Also added the heart from Studio Calico.

Here is the last page of this week/day.

Pictures :

Tiki Torches.

Chocolate fountain. Well, more like a Chocolate blob fountain. But boy was it tasty.

For this picture I used photoshop to put my text on and then added this Arrow brush from Ali Edwards. Find it here. I then took the arrow and moved it onto another layer, which I turned black. That what when I printed it out the arrow was white. Once printed out, I just cut out the white arrow and attached with the Tim Holtz tiny attacher. I love the look of it.

The wooden people are from Studio Calico.

Sorry for the brief post today. I need to play catch up from our week staycation !! As always, If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask. Take care now. Until next time.
