project life :: week 13

first off, my thoughts and prayers are with all the runners, families and bostonians. what is this world coming to where something as simple and freeing as a foot race is a target?makes me sick.

this is week 13, i am currently working on week 14 too. this week also includes a "day in the life." 

i feel i say this every week, but what a busy week we had, never feels overwhelming in the moment but putting the layouts together each week makes me relive all the fun. i love project life. this week includes a lot of school related events, including denton's report card. so i included a journal card from the bridgeport design, i relayed a cute story about d, enthusiastically calling europe, "syrup!" so because i usually miss including his writing, i made sure to this week. i asked him to write his name and draw himself, instead he drew our family. love that. they had an egg drop contest at school, and i added studio calico stickers from the march kit on that picture. 

i decided to do a "day in the life," on march 29th. d had had a sleep over with his best bud the night before and then he went 4-wheeler riding that afternoon, it was good friday, just seemed like a good day. i wasn't as time specific as i have been in the past, i just did a brief summary on the events, morning, afternoon and night. i also made my own template and it was an 8 x 10 inch. behind "day in the life," is d's report card. in case you don't know "day in the life," is a prompt from ali edwards for project life. it just is a reminder mostly of what your daily routine is like this point in time. i am trying to remember to do one a month. 

this is the back side of the journaling of the "day in the life." i mixed both small and large pictures and added on little statement of what event was going on. 

for the journal card this week, i combined a journal card into the week title card. i found some cute envelopes at michael's, recollections brand. inside the envelope i journaled on a becky higgins grid card and just slide it into the envelope. i used alphabet sticker that i also found at michael's, they were from snap, simple stories, to write out thirteen. i used a button, "this week," that was from ormolu. on the picture of Denton and james planting seeds i used a rain, rain go away card that was also included in the march studio calico kit. lastly, on the two images of the boys finding their easter baskets, i used a shrinky bird from darcie's heart and home. the little wooden bunny on james's picture was on the clearance bin at paper source in charlotte. LOVE THE PAPER SOURCE.

so that's it for week 13, i hope you are having a good week. 

project life :: week 3

i was still on a disney high this week so a few more disney moments crept into my layouts. 

i made the week 3 by cutting down some of the seafoam cardstock, i printed the days of the week on it. used two different designs of washi tape for adhering the little typewriter picture down. the 3 button comes from a series from ormolu. LOVE ormolu. 


this week d had a field trip and for him the best part of any field trip is the best ride. i used a ali edwards' brush from designer digitals from the friends writing at the top. for the summary card i used the 4 x 6 from the seafoam kit and handlettered the 14-20 then colored them in with my copic markers.

on this side, i added two postcards, one from disney and the other from a former student who went to london over the holidays. a picture of me with all my BLING! and the coolest thing for me this week was getting a text from a friend asking if i wanted to go to see the miranda lambert, dierks bentley and lee brice concert, only hours before it started. umm hell yes i want to go! so the concert pictures went down the center. i wrote on them with a white gel pen. the open pocket, i added in some confetti, plush little hearts and an S charm that my friend gave me while we were in disney. lastly, my concert ticket with an ali edwards brush that i stitched through. very fun week.
