week 24

happy 4th of july! (4 days late, yes, i know.) i have been doing a lot of canning again lately, so i seem to at least have a pattern with canning and my project life completion and blogging. i will have some pictures and recipes to share with you on the projects page if you are interested.  hope you had a great holiday. we had a soggy but celebrated 4th here in SC.


went to a pressure canning class in week 24, very fun. up until that point i only knew how to do hot water canning. little denton and i had a special date night. and well, the canning got out of control. james went to see his first movie in the theater. 

lots of fun in this week's layout. i used the weather studio calico wood pieces on the picture of the boys playing in the rain. the remember on james first movie theater experience is from ali edwards edge sentiments vol 1. the card that is cut in half is from echo park papers available at michael's. the "dream" is also from a echo park paper card that i just cut the dream word art out of. in the t-ball picture (although its a little hard to see) i used ali's ihearttravel collection above denton's head, it says awesome. this was their first t-ball game and denton was awarded the game ball for standing out as a good player... proud mama. 

i cut down a journaling card from the studio calico project life card to make the note on the green bean canning. the funny faces picture has studio calico alphabet stickers on it.

d and i had a special date night. we wen to a tie dye class and had ice cream afterwards. i played up the special date night all week. it was so sweet when we were leaving he opened my car down. not sure where he learned that but it was cute none the less. 

the week card was made from an echo park paper journal card. i added the stripped washi tape to it and the 24 from ormolu.  the journal card with the orange star is from the clemetine project life collection. i used it last year. on the image of the snapping turtle i used precision pens to write on the picture. the morning card is cut down from the studio calico project life kit. and lastly, on the image of james "playing" t-ball i used photoshop to create a ez label look.
