Project Life Week 5

I'm back !! I'm sorry that I have been missing lately. Still slowly getting over whatever I had. Plus trying to plan 2 birthday parties, a move, Valentine's day, ect. It's Craziness around here.

I do want to share my week 5 with you today. It has been done for a few days now. I tried working on it here and there while I was sick, and it was really hard to get motivated and creative when all I wanted to do was lay down. But it is done and I even managed to get my A Day In The Life Insert done and in my album.

Here we go.

We have spending more and more time outside these days. The kids wanted to get out the chalk, and they spend a while creating fairies from the Tinkerbell movies.

Brush from Katie Pertiet

I have been promising the kids that we would make cookies. I am trying to get me in the album as well, even though I was still in my gym clothes !!

 You can find the hashtag brush here.

Mmmmm. Cookie dough.

I had fun with this card. It is a filler card from the Seafoam kit. I did my journaling, tilted it and spaced it out so that it fit into the white space. Added the brush month and the date is a stamp.

The girls had a Young Authors Night at school where they were able to show us their books that they wrote and illustrated. It was so neat to read their books, they were so proud. I forgot the big camera so I had to settle for the iphone.

I had these two photos that I wanted to make sure they were together so I fit them into 2 3x4 cards. Added a digital tag before I printed it out so that it would tie them both together. 

This card is a filler card from the Seafoam kit. I added the letters from jillibean soup and then doodled around the edge. The stars are from Studio Calico.

I did kind of participate in Ali Edwards A Day In The Life for January. Next month I will take more photos. But I did make an insert this month.

I used Ali Edwards Day In The Life Template for the first page. You can find it here. I also made a collage for the back side. Printed them both out on my 13x19 paper through my printer.  Here is what it looks like in photoshop.

Here is what it looks like in the album. I used one of Becky Higgins 6x12 page protectors. Next month I will probably add a tag to the insert. But for now it will be okay.

The other side.

The second page.

Maddie and her 100 mask from school. Used this brush for the word school.

Took this photo with my iphone at the park.

The weekly house photo.

The kids love to talk to Grandma and Grandpa on Skype.

Journaling cards. The first one is an instagram of our loft. We have walls now !! Sorry about the shadow, didn't realize it until I was editing the photos.

The second card is talking about Maddie's 100 days of school party. I used some Thickers and stamped the grid pattern onto them.

I took this photo while on my run this week. I took the kids with me. Didn't have time that day to get everyone to the gym so I got everyone on their bikes and we went for a few miles. I ran and they biked. I journaled about how Katelyn asked if I was running or jogging. I had to stop and wait for Noah the whole time so she thought that I was going so slow ! Also Noah said "I love bike riding/running." At least they loved it !! Might have to do it again, well maybe not.

The second one is a foldable journaling card. I journaled about the Super Bowl. 

Here is what I did to the inside. Nothing exciting, but again, I was not feeling up to creating. I added some photos from the game.

The backside. I added the Super Bowl logo.

That is it for week 5. I have been waiting for my Studio Calico Kit to come in the mail, but nothing yet. So I will probably start week 6 and hope it comes soon. How is everyone doing with their albums ?

Well, I have to go finish up planning a birthday party this weekend, and make sure Valentine's is all ready to go ! Have a great week everyone.

Mindi, I hope you are feeling 100% soon. My husband was home sick last week and is still slowing coming back to life.
As always, great layout. I especially love your slanted journaling card. I do not have the patience to do that, so I will have to settle for my handwriting.

I got my SC PL kit today, so as soon as my boys are in bed I am going to put last week together. Have my photos already printed.

Take care!
