PL Week 20: Chip Off The Old Block

Documenting the entire month of May 2015 in 2 days? Thank you Project Life!
Here is Week 22:

I love creating a cluster of pocket to scrapbook an event/holiday such as Memorial Day. We took my daughter to a few historical sights and out for ice cream.

Love scrappin' everyday life. We say "goodnight moon" every night :)

I wanted to participate in Paper Issue's "Chip off the old block" challenge. My daughter is a daddy's girl! I wouldn't have it any other way. Here's a few cards on the page to showcase their bond:

Have a great week!!

I Dig You

I loved the sketch over at Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge blog:

I used the Woofers and Tweeters stamps set with my favorite doggie (who looks JUST like my puggle, Jax).  I made a cluster of the 3 icons in this set and white embossed them on black for the background. The white layer is popped up for dimension.

Thanks for stopping by! If you're on the East Coast like me, enjoy the snow :)

Project Life {Week2}

Happy Saturday! I am sharing my Week 2 of Project Life for the "Pinspire" challenge at Paper Issues:

The "pinspiration" board featured these photos:

This worked out perfect for this week because we had our first snow of the year and our first snow day!! (I'm a first grade teacher.. we love snow days more than children hehe!)

I blocked off a 6x12 panel for my snow day pictures and used the Simple Stories "Snow Fun" mini set:

I really love how it turned out!  Other things going on this week:

My daughter is VERY into playing with her babies.. love seeing her imagination grow!

On the title card, I added 2 photos of Daddy showing her how silly you look with Mrs. Potato Head lips :)

My poor baby got the stomach bug last Thursday :(  Here's photos of her either sleeping or having quiet time. About the only things we did for 3 days!

More milestones.. first time out.. longest 90 seconds of both our lives LOL!... first pillow pillow.. probably one of the last times she'll let me rock her to sleep (she just wants to curl up on her pillow now), and some mini photos of favorite things.

I am also linking up at Lasting Memories for scrapbooking "moments captured". Project Life is certainly all about capturing everyday moments!  And another link up at Paper Issues called "Say it Aint Snow outside" lol!
I hope you are enjoying your weekend! 
Thanks for stopping by :)

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! I'm so excited to start another year of Project Life.   Even though I'm still working on my 2013 and 2014 albums, I'm starting 2015 and making a resolution to document the previous week each week. As I have time, I'll go back and do a past page. Almost 2 years behind, why don't I throw in the towel you may ask? This is why:

As I'm trying to take advantage of Elmo's hypnosis and photograph my Week 1 layout, my daughter wedges herself between me and the table and SQUEALS in delight when she sees a photo of her and her daddy. Printed out, embellished, and journaled for her to trace with her tiny finger. That's why.

Remind me of this reasoning when I'm, somehow, again, fallen 6 more months behind, k? Deal.

Here's my Week 1 page, minus cute 18 month old. It's one page because Jan 1st fell on a Thursday.

My girl really misses playing outside everyday. On a day where it wasn't so windy and brisk, we bundled up and went to the playground for a 1/2 hour. She was in heaven and even climbed the steps to the slide by herself for the first time (standing up).

I *had* to print out some of my favorite Facebook pics of my team winning the wildcard game. Cowboys fan here. Please don't judge haha. And I'm currently in love with using glitter paper. Everywhere.

My girl's favorite card apparently - her and daddy (and puppy) reading. And a photo marking her 18 month milestone :)

I was inspired to get started on this page earlier this week because of the new challenge at Paper Issues "Popping the Cork". I thought documenting the first week of the new year seemed appropriate! You also needed to use Elle's Studio products. I went through my stash and found this awesome PL stamp set, as well as 2 sets of journaling cards from the Love You More and Penelope lines.

I'm also linking up at Simon Says Stamp for their "Something New" challenge, since I scrapped the new year :) Thanks for visiting today! Hope to be back soon to share more pages. Have a great weekend!

Project Life: Week 13

Taking advantage of some 'me' time on this Sunday evening! Watching football and catching up on Week 13 of Project Life 2014:

Here's the title card:

 My girl (around 9 months here) reading her first favorite book (Touch and Feel Puppies lol).

A dinner with 2 of our favorite couples. Here are the girls: 

And our men lol:

I even did some stamping!!

And the reason for my blogging, my super sweet friend Sandi is on the DT at Stuck On U Sketches and encouraged me to enter their Project Life Plaid challenge :) Here's my husband's side of the family at our niece's birthday party.

Have a great week!

Project Life 2014: Week 9

The new school year is in full swing, my baby girl is now a walking, talking, into everything TODDLER, and I'm STILL trucking along on my Project Life albums (both second half of 2013 and beginning 2014). 

Here is week 9 of 2014 :)  I can't believe she was this little just a few months ago!!

I'm including a card for each  monthly milestone - here are her 8 month stats.

When I saw the challenge at Scrap and Play this month I knew I had plenty of material to play along!

Here is one of my fav pics of my girl and her dog :)

Thanks for stopping by! Happy Sunday!! :)

Project Life 2013: Week 30

Dusting off my blog, on this rare chance to have a day to myself this summer!  It's been a SUPER busy one - vacations, first birthday parties, sickness (who gets sick in the SUMMER?! apparently my daughter and I). I have been busy editing and printing pictures (thank you Shutterfly 101 free prints sale!) and ready to tackle my Project Life pages.  I am WAY behind, but I'm not going to let it get me down. I'm living life and making memories - isn't that what it's all about? :)

So........ I really wanted to play with my stamps (thank you YouTube inspiration.. loving Jen McGuire's videos for a quick fix when I can't get creative myself) and play along with Paper Smooches Anything Goes Challenge.

I decided to do a throwback PL page in my 2013 album, which ironically is exactly a year ago. And guess who was born a year ago just 3 weeks after my baby girl? Her future husband (a momma can wish right?)

I used the super cute A Little Lovin' set for the little frog prince. How adorable is he with the polka dot paper? Lots of gold for this royal!! :)

Here's how it looks on the whole spread:

And here's my own itty bitty at just 3 weeks old! Love her! And I love this burlap and blue together, even on a baby girl page.


Anyone else get crazy and have a yard sale this summer? My bestie and I do it together every year and have way too much fun pawning our junk treasures on others. This year, I even sobbed over parted with some of my baby items to make room for toddler toys.

And here's "me and my bestie" after we got caught in the rain cleaning up said yard sale :)  I LOVE this heart bokeh paper from Echo Park.

Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you are enjoying your summer as much as I am (and finding a little time to get creative!) Here's to more PL pages to share soon :) Have a good weekend!
