Love Day Photo Shoot

Happy Saturday everyone !

I thought I would pop in and update the blog with some love ! We are having a fun girls weekend while the boys are off camping. I stayed up WAY too late last night trying to play catch up on my 2015 Project Life album.

Today I wanted to share with you some pages about our Valentine's Day Photo Shoot that we did back in February.  I know, I know. It's June but I have a few layouts to finish in my PL album. Plus who doesn't love a good photo shoot photos to play with !

I have to say that it was super fun to create this layout, no rules, no specific products. I am happy to say that it is now done and I can move on to something else.

Here is a look at both pages.

Here are a few close ups of the first page.

I used a combination or products for this one. The gray card is from Amy Tangerine Plus One kit.
I used a lot of the Crate Paper stickers. The red LOVE acrylic is from ColorCast Designs.

A close up.

I used some of the cards from the BH Gold Kit and boy do I love them !

On this card I told the short story of my "Love Bug".

Lets move onto the second page. I used another card from the BH Gold Kit.

I asked the kids to do some funny walking down the tracks and I got a few great ones. These three are quite the characters.

This heart overlay is from the BH clear overlay card pack. I LOVE it and thought it went perfectly with this layout.

One more close up. The photo of these two only took about 15 tries.  Siblings, oooyyy !

That is it for me today. Thanks for coming everybody.

I am off to go paint some pretty girls toenails and then see what else we can find to do before the boys get home.

Have a fabulous weekend everybody.

Project Life Week 21

Hello Everybody !! 

Wow, has it really been that long since I have blogged ?!!! 

I am truly sorry about that. The end of the school year was jam packed and then summer came. 
I have definitely been more busy creating than blogging. But I hope to catch up slowly. 

I thought I would share my last week I have put together, week 21. 

I created this one using the NoelMignon kit for June called Happy Go Lucky. It was jam packed with lots of fun goodies. 

So let's go, I've got a movie date with the kiddos today !! Did I mention Summer is here. 

Here is a look at both pages together. When I was looking back over the photos from this week I noticed that I had a lot of fun photos out in the yard. I decided to go with a green color scheme with a few other colors thrown in. 

I just had to tell the story of how the kids call Dr. Pepper "Mommy Juice". Now let me say that yes I drink a glass here and there, but I certainly do not drink a ton !! But my kids try and steal a sip or two. 

I added that story on to the first journaling card with the arrow on the bottom. 

I kind of went with a simpler style for this layout. I just love how all my photos turned out and wanted the focus to be on them instead. Cause you know I love me some good photos !! Lol. 

Moving on to the other items on this page. One of my favorite photos from the week was the small 3x4 photo. I was out taking photos of my blooming flowers and a humming bird came around and I managed to stand real still and get a shot ! If you look close you can see it. I added a digital brush to the photo from Ali Edwards and puffy triangle sticker. 

The bottom photos are of my growing squash plant. Here is the link to the brush.

The next photo is a scene that happened a lot towards the end of school. Noah requested me to bring his scooter to the bus stop. So I would leave it on the other side of the gate for him, he would see me and run to the gate and off he would go !!

Let's move on to the other side. 

I took some fun photos with my 50 mm lens that week and I love how they turned out. 

Next is Bob the minion. Is it safe to say that I might have a little soft spot for these little yellow guys ?!!! They are so cute. They came out to Build A Bear and it didn't take much convincing for me to agree to let the kids get one. Plus it was their good grades present. 

The journaling card that has the hearts on the top tells the Minion story. The picture next to it is how Noah keeps Bob's clothing in his room. He kills me !! Love it. 

The last story was about how Katelyn was awarded with being on the Principal's List. She kept a 4.0 all year and was awarded her certificate at an Ice Cream Social at school. The photo of us next to it was from that day. So, so proud of that girl. 

Well that is the end of week 21 folks. Thanks for coming. I hope to catch you all up on all of my pages here soon.

I share a lot on there. 

Have a Great Day.
