Project Life Week 14

Hello everybody !

I'm back with another Project Life spread share today. Summer is wrapping up for us here in the states as school starts in 9 days ! Yikes. I am sure looking forward to more quiet time and more scrappy time for sure. Well, let's get started.

Today I am going to be share with you week 14 of my 2017 album.

Most of these PL cards are from Studio Calico. When I start putting together a spread I first start with the photos. I look through the photos to find common colors. This week happened to have lots of red, pink, and green. Once my color scheme is established then I can move on picking out the cards. The title card had a lot of that red color and I liked the saying. I added the week number using those pink stickers and added a few embellishments to the card.


Typically I will start of my row of 3x4 pockets with at journaling card. This first one was a simply white journaling card that went well with the rest of the colorful spread. It talks about getting ready for Battle Of The Book competition. BOB for short. I added the big sticker letters to spell out BOB. Once I was done I thought it needed a little bit of color. So I ended up stamping some red stars underneath the BOB letters.

The next card has a smaller photo of our Sunday dinner. I added some journaling right onto the photo and then placed it simply on the card.


This is a photo of my flowers that I bought myself at Trader Joes. It is one of my favorite things about the springtime. I added a digital brush from Ali Edwards and added some journaling on the right hand side.


During this particular week we spent lots of time outside. We started out at Home Depot. We bought fruit trees, bushes, and flowers. This 4x6 photo is of my shopping cart at Home Depot.


To finish up this left side I have a photo of Maddie at the park. The next card is this fun cactus card. I added that geotag in the middle and added some journaling to the bottom. I really loved the green on this card and how it was a plant.


Let's move onto the right side. I start it out with a big photo of Noah on the swings. A big tip to take a similar photo is to get as low as you can to the ground. I think I sat down on the ground and then leaned back. And snap away and you too can get a shot like this.


Noah is still at that point that he loves to be tucked in and kissed good night. I snapped a photo of him all tucked in with his animals. I wrote down a little bit of my routine as I say good night.


Here is a close up of these 2 cards. This first one is of a quote of what I say almost every night. I added the words GOOD NIGHT. I also added that triangle chipboard piece that has a three on it. It represents the three of them. The journaling reads. " Good night Noah. Good night Teddy. Good night Fluffy. " Giving each one a kiss I say good night.


Here is a look at most of the right side of my spread. I kept with the red, green, and pink color scheme on this side as well. Most of my photos had those colors in them so it turned out great.


As I mentioned earlier we went to Home Depot and bought a bunch of plants, flowers, and trees. This is a photo of our carts heading up to pay. The journaling card next to it is talking about how a few of my neighbors get together every Friday to have brunch and catch up. This week it was at my house.


Here is the last photo that I want to share and talk about. This was a photo of that Friday morning. I had bought some fruit and muffins and also placed my flowers on the counter.


Thanks so much for coming over to the blog today. I will be back with more Project Life pages. Take care now.
