It’s APRIL, people!
WOW. Just wow. The year is flying by. Earlier this week, I was afraid I wasn’t going to have enough pictures to fill the week in the album. Boy, was I wrong! I ended up with two inserts in addition to the usual weekly pages. Part of that is because I devoted an entire page + to Little Bit’s newest attempt to ride a bike without training wheels. Big Girl took pictures (I was at the grocery store and I have trained her well – SuperMan said she told him “Mom will kill you if we don’t get pictures of this.”) I think she likes that her photos are featured in the family album and I love the help!
Add to that the beautiful weather and some silly critters and I had a lot of stuff to share. So, get comfy, you’ve got a lot of stuff to look at here.
(and remember to click on any picture you want to see larger)
The first two-page spread: (you can see the other insert peeking through) I used a smaller insert (on the right) with 3 4×6 photos – it was just enough to capture the rest of the bike pictures.
Next, a close up of those photos:
I am having fun using up my “stash” and finding things to go together that weren’t meant to go together – like the Creative Memories’ pink die-cut and stickers to go with another scrap-pad paper and the PL grid journaling card cut down and stuck on top.
And then the back of the smaller insert and the front of the second insert: (Silly puppy shots)
And let’s all sing “Hallelujah!” for my new dishwasher! (hee hee)
The stickers on the puppy pictures were from a sheet from Jillibean Soup.
I made the journal card on the bottom right using my PL Digital papers from Jessica Sprague. Sticker on the picture of Little Bit reading was a circle I cut in half from October Afternoon and the label on the yummy dinner picture is a Martha Stewart label from the Staples collection.
Back of the second insert and the final page:
The polka dot paper is from My Mind’s Eye (I think I got the pad of paper at Michael’s) and the words on vellum are from an old Creative Memories pack I had. More Martha Stewart labels on the other pictures and a picture of the book I’m reading right now.
And close up of the last page:
The journal card is from Kate Teague (This Life collection) and I added the “This Story” to the top from another file in the same kit and dropped it on there. The paper flowers were more Creative Memories stuff I uncovered. The Happy Spring page I used as my week indicator came from Ali Edwards and I edited it to change the background color to match the journal card and then added the week, the paper flower and some glitter poka dots with a Gelly Roll glitter pen. The “Hello Spring” came from Sprik Space. I just found that blog and love the designs!
Because I thought I wasn’t going to have a lot of pictures for the week, I did a screen print of the audio book I’m listening to, the Daily Mile page to show my walks this week (yay, me!) and the poster of the movie SuperMan and I went to see Friday night. I like it, though. Bits of ephemera about our life.
Well, that’s it for this week – hope you liked it and thanks for stopping by!
