This week was half full of bike riding and half regular summer activites.
Here is what the first page looks like.
I added the sticker and the camera to the title card. Just ads a little something extra.
The pictures :
I guess I forgot to photograph the first one of Katelyn on her bike. This was one of the first times we had the girls try riding without training wheels. Katelyn was really too scared to do it before now, and we didn't want to push her.
This one is of Maddie. I put two 3x4 pictures on a 4x6 and printed. The brush on the side is from here. I simply used the part of the strip that I wanted and erased the rest.
The two girls on their 2 wheeled bikes. Brush from here.
Now for the journaling cards for the first page :
I love this first card. It is more like a filler card than a journaling card but I love it. I used the blue bike patterened paper for the background and added the washi tape on the side for some color. The wood people are from Studio Calico. Then I stamped "Enjoy the ride" onto some patterned paper and added it onto the card.
The other side of the filler card is a picture of Noah on his "Queen car" as he calls it. It is one of those motorized cars that goes less than 1 mile an hour !! But he loves it. So he had that out that night while we were busy with the girls and their bikes.
For this one I started with a journaling card from the clementine kit. The strip of patterened paper was perfect for these pictures. Then added the word bike and called it good.
The other side is a picture of Patrick and Noah. He is pushing Noah on the trike, it is sometimes hard for him to ride it by himself.
Here is a look at the second page of week 28.
The pictures :
This is of Katelyn riding by herself for the first time. With daddy right by her side.
Noah had to have his own goggles, since both of his sisters had some. Brush from here. For this one I pulled up the picture in photoshop. Added the brush to the photo and from there I made the brush the exact size that I wanted it to be. I do this a lot and it works perfectly. After I had the brush the size that I wanted I moved it onto a plain layer and printed it out on cardstock. Ta - Dah !!
Here is Maddie being her crazy self on the tramp. They were playing with the water on the tramp and of course had to have their goggles on.
On afternoon we spotted a HUGE grasshopper in the garden area, actually on of the tomato plants. Katelyn was determined to capture it. But she was too afraid to grab it with her bare hands. So for the next hour her and Maddie discussed and attempted to capture the poor grasshopper. Well as you can see she finally did it and it lived in the bug catcher until the end of the day.Katelyn is definitely my bug girl.
Here is a look at the journaling cards :
I love this LOVE paper. I just cut a strip and put in on top of a plain journaling card. Added the washi tape and arrows.
Patrick has been watching reruns of the big bang theory in the afternoons/evenings. I used this really cute freebie. You can find it here.
The first journaling card I think turned out so cute. I used the "envelope type" card (which was from my studio calico kit) as a tag holder. The wood banner is from My Minds Eye. I added the butterfly and then the letters to spell out BUGS.
I added the tag (Again from my studio calico kit) and the ribbon.
Here is the other side.
Simple and easy.
For the last journaling card I used a freebie that I have had for a while. I tried to locate the link for you but was not able to, so sorry. On this one I placed the photo onto the journaling card and resized it. Making the picture the exact size that I needed. I journaled on the card and printed that out. Then I added the picture and placed my embellishments. Super easy.
And that is it for week 28. I do have week 29 all done as well. I know right !! I will hopefully get that one blogged in the next couple of days. Enjoy what's left of election night everyone. Did you go and vote ?
