Project Life Tuesday ~ 21 May 13

Happy Tuesday, y’all!

Hope your week is treating you well – so far so good for us here.

It’s time for another update on my Project Life pages…

A little background

The Mom CreativeThis year, I’m doing my Project Life album digitally. I’m using Creative Memories’ Storybook Creator software and Becky Higgins’ Turquoise Edition (for the most part)  I’ve also purchased these nifty little overlays that allow my pages to look like true pocket pages (I’m loving them).

I’m planning to print my pages as a book – hopefully, it will all fit in one volume and take up less space on the shelf than the 2009, 2010, 2011 & 2012 versions which are 2 volumes (2 3” binders) each!

This week’s pages

Journaling reads:

We spent Spring Break at Mom’s house.  SuperMan came down for the weekend and then went back to work at Plant Jack for a shutdown. While we were shopping at Sam’s they had beautiful strawberries so we decided to teach the girls to make strawberry jam. We had such fun making it and by the time we were finished, we’d already had offers from friends to purchase the fruits of the girls’ labors!

Journaling reads:

A fun week and weekend ~ On Saturday SuperMan, Big Girl and I went to River Street for a few hours. We ate lunch at Spanky’s and walked along the river like tourists. On Sunday, the girls hunted for the eggs they’d dyed the day before ~ bittersweet as this might be the last Easer Egg Hunt they decide to do (they’re growing up!) The silly pictures I found on my phone after we got home ~ that’s what I get for letting them “play” on my phone while we are waiting in the restaurants. Later in the week, Big Girl and I got pedicures ~ her first since her surgery. Overall, a very relaxing and pleasant Spring Break week.

More pages coming soon – I’m on a roll!!

Making progress here – I’m into March with these pages.  The good news is that I’m catching up but that is partly because (the bad news) I don’t have a lot of pictures from Feb/March. I think it is because it was so cold and rainy during that time.  I just didn’t have the drive to take a lot of photos – and we weren’t doing much other than school and work!

Embellishments from the page above are from Creative Memories’ Cheerful Winter Digital kit.

Love how the blues and greens tied in with the colors on the pictures.

I decided to use the blurry cell phone picture of the girls because it was so cute – them cuddled up by the fireplace with their laptops.

Becky Higgins’ Turquoise kit for this page – kept it simple as the pictures were simple, too.

Love my sweet baby’s happy smile about her teacher’s blanket and capturing her sign language performance.

That’s it for my Project Life pages this week – what about yours?

This week’s pages

Still catching up from earlier this year, but making progress feels good.  These pages cover the end of January and the first part of February.

I used the January kit from The Lilypad for most of the elements on this page. I just love the pop of color and how it coordinated with all of the other blues and greens on the photos.

I’m also in love with the fonts – one was from Fonts for Peas from Kevin & Amanda.  (Pea Captivatingly is the bold font) And one was from the Digi Files from the Daily Digi, but I found it at The Sweet Shoppe now. I really like the handwriting script.

The last page documented Big Girl’s retreat weekend with her friends from church. She had such a great time – they got to meet Seth Condrey on Saturday night before the evening session.

That’s it for now – slowly but surely I’m making progress.
