Project Life Week 13

Hello Project Life. Hello Spring Break. Hello Trip to the Zoo.

For week 13 I decided to fill the whole layout with pictures and stories from our trip to the zoo. I really didn't have enough regular photos to fill up a whole week anyways.

Here is the two pages put together.

For some reason this week was really, really hard to start and get going. But once I did, it just flew by and put itself together. 

Here is a look at the first page.

A friend and her kids came with us for a day of fun. We drove up to the Fresno zoo. The kids had such a great time looking at all the animals. I just noticed a mistake, Ha Ha. Katelyn pointed out that I spelled Ouch wrong, oops. I was going back and forth with oops and ouch and I guess I got a combination of the two words !

Checking out the bears.

Brush found here.

These 2 seals were the hit of the day, the favorite. The kids sat and watched them swim for the longest time. There was an area that had clear glass that allowed you to see them swimming underwater and so I snapped a picture.

I used one of Al Edwards Memory Lifelines on this photo. Found here. Then created a circle in photoshop and reduced the opacity to make it fade. Also added the word favorite from Ali Edwards new I heart travel brush set.

This first journaling card is from the Studio Calico kit. Used the wood @ symbol from SC as well.

The journaling card is from the midnight core kit. My poor Maddie girl got her hand stuck in the in gate coming into the park. Noah was playing around with the door and slammed her hand in the gate. We had to find the first aid station and get some ice because it turned colors and swelled up.  Good news though, she was fine by the end of the day.

The hello sunshine square is from a SC kit.

Here is the second page.

All the kids had fun pretending to be eaten by the hippo.

Brush is from here.

Added some journaling on the side of this photo of the cute monkey.

Added a brush and then the arrow from the stamp set from the SC kit.

They have a great petting zoo right in the middle of the zoo.

On the way home from the zoo we stopped for dinner at this little store/restaurant. They had so many fun things there. A treehouse, lots of antiques, lots of old toys, a boardwalk walkway all around the place.

I used on the of the SC project life kit journaling cards to one side and an instagram photo on the other.  

I love this stamp/frame from the SC PL kit. I sized a photo of Katelyn and put in the frame.

Maddie looking at the map, picking where we were going to go next.

The first journaling card is from the SC kit. Added the letters from the kit also to the banner.

The second card is from the seafoam kit. Added some washi and some stickers.

That is it for week 13. Working hard on week 14. I'm halfway done, yeah !! Feels good to get some weeks in the album. Although I am so far behind I am not to worried, and just enjoying this process of documenting our lives.
