Project Life Week 11

Hello all! I'm back with another week of Project Life in the books. I am skipping week 10 for now, I'm waiting on a couple pics to finish. I will post it as soon as it is complete. I just finished week 11, so that I will show instead. For week 11, I used greens for St Patty's Day. I love how it turned out. The papers I used were just a clearance Basic Grey set from AC Moore called Origins. It worked out that even my "Pi Day" shirt (that I forgot to wear) was green.

For this week I used a mixture of the Origins line, as well as anything else green I could come across! Green labels from October Afternoon and Martha Stewart, green tags from Chic Tags, green washi, one of which is October Afternoon, a small green baggie, green alpha from Thickers, a green 4x6 card from my new Studio Calico Project Life kit, you get the point! I also used some non-green items, like alphas from Lily Bee, Jillibean Soup, and Basic Grey.

I had one two inserts this week. One is of St. Patty's Day, and the second is a paper from Hannah's school, that I wont show. I included the tags from the silly hats and necklaces I got the kids, the front of our napkin, and the grocery receipt.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed what you saw and got some ideas.

Project Life Week 9

I am so in love with the Pebbles lines! This week I used Seen and Noted. I love how it all turned out! I'm getting alittle nervous though, I need to get the rest of March and all of Arpil in the first album if I have any hope of keeping it to 3 again this year. I realistically can not get it to 2. It would be nice, but I am not willing to cut back any more to get it that way. I only had 1 insert for this week, and it was my daughter final play schedule, so I wont bother showing it.

It was a mixed week, my daughter and her boyfriend celebrated their 1 year anniversary, and Steve and I lost a long time friend suddenly. Mostly the overall week was pretty blah, the girls and I tried to keep Steve busy. Like I said, I used Pebbles Seen and Noted line this week. I had the paper, the sticker sheet, the journal cards, and the prompt cards for it, I also used some Elle's Studio tags, Martha Stewart label stickers, a Project Life title card, Fancy Pants, Making Memories, Basic Grey and Oh Snap! alphas, I cut a label from the October Afternoon Farm Girl paper, and of course used my Tiny Tim stapler!

Here are some close ups of some journal cards.

I have most of my week 10 done, waiting on some pictures for the insert and a couple others, and I am completely done with week 11. I may end up posting them out of order. Thanks for taking a look and for your comments, its nice to hear

Project Life Week 8

Its time for me to catch up. I am not usually this far behind. I just finished week 8 which was pretty big with my MIL's 80th birthday party all of us children threw. I used paper from the party figuring it was a major part of my week. The kids were also on winter break, for Hannah that meant fun, sleepovers. Megan had rehearsal almost every day that week, it really cut up her days. So, this week had music paper, Stampin Up!, 7 Gypsies, and Chloe's Closet from Making Memories. I also used Project Life journal cards, an index card, a grid card, and a small bag. My alphas were from Thickers, Basic Grey, Jillibean Soup, October Afternoon, and Lily Bee. I included some washi, a Elle's Studio tag, musical notes I punched, and October Afternoon tabs.

I loved the lips glasses. I found them on clearance (after Valentine's Day) while shopping at Party City for party supplies. The girls happily posed for picrures.

I saw the "ikea" journal card a long time ago on www.neibuhrchicks.blogspot.com and had to make one for myself. I love her work.

I have many inserts for the party. The first insert is of decorations and my receipts.

The back side of the front has the last of the decorations. The second is of guests, family/children, children w/spouses, grandchildren, Sweet Adeline's, and neighbors.

The third has our place cards, the invite, and more misc pics.

The back side of the fourth has all the speakers and some journaling. The fourth is of us unwinding at the bar area after the party. The kids enjoyed Shirly Temples!

The back of the fourth has more unwinding and her opening her tv at the house afterwards. The fifth is all of my notes of questions, set up, foods, names/phone numbers of those i needed to call, decorations, layout etc.

The sixth is the word puzzles my SIL made up and Hannah wanted to keep hers.

Project Life Week 7

This was a fun week! Valentine's Day week. As per my dear friends suggestion, I am keeping track of my michievous kitty Chance. If I had started from his arrival into our home his numbers would be extremely higher! December alone would have put him over the top!. Other than Valentine's Day itself there was not alot going on, just everyday stuff. That's what I love about Project Life, I would have never made a scrapbook page about my excitement in seeing my daffodils starting to pop up, but now I can share things like this. For this weeks spread I used "Fourteen" by Crate Paper. I also have 2 inserts to share this week.

I used mostly "fourteen" for this spread, I was ecen able to use the back side of the cut up card sheet for journaling since it had the grid design on the back. I included things like label stickers from Jillibean Soup and Martha Stewart, journal cards from Project Life Clementine kit, tags from Elle's Studio, alphas from October Afternoon and Basic Grey, tabs and stickers from October Afternoon and Basic Grey. My friend made me a beautiful 3x4 card that I added a vellum arrow to so it pointed to the hubby and I, which was from the "true love" line by Basic Grey. The heart sticker came in my Studio Calico kit.

The inserts are just of Valentine's Day. I found the straws with lips in the dollar bin at Target and had to have them, so fun! And Steve even participated in our picture silliness. I used Design J, and Design C cut in half. Sorry the pics are dark. Its dark and rainy here, but I wanted to get them posted. I will be featured in www.michellebostinelos.com/blog blog hop on Saturday so check it out. Maybe I can even get another week finished to post by then.
