Project Life Week 38

Week 38
We are now into the beginning of bible study and I am so excited about what I will learn from the book of James! We have had great weather again I was blessed to be able to take Cole to the playground. He had a great time. We said good bye to Auntie Jenni as her new apartment was ready for her to move in to so now Cole can play in the living room instead of staying on the stairs only :) .
I can totally understand the love my sister has for her dogs when I saw the dogs so excited to see her when she came in the house. They didn't care what kind of day she had, they were just so happy to see her.

Thanks for keeping up with my updates, I'll be posting the next set within the next couple of weeks (i hope ;) )

Project Life Week 37

This week we had house guests as my sister and her 2 dogs stayed with us. It was awesome having my sister around just by herself, no hubby or child along. I really enjoyed her company and hanging out together. She is a fantastic person with a great sense of humor and so patient, I love her lots :) .
Bible study started this week as well along with Sunday School for Cole and he enjoyed himself at both. 

We ended the week going to the CALMECA Mexican Independence Day/20 yr. Anniversary of the organization. As my mom was the inaugural president she was asked to give a speech and she did a fanstastic job, we were so proud of her!

Project Life Week 35 & 36


Two more weeks in my Project Life project, I am thrilled to have kept up with it this far!

Week 35
We are settling in after camping and vacation. We have enjoyed phenomenal weather, nice and hot; Blake played his first Babe Ruth baseball league game this week and wrote and passed his Alberta Driver's Learner's License test. I used items for the core kit for this spread.

Week 36
The kids started the new school year this week and Blake received his government issued learner's license in the mail. I used items from the core kit and added a piece of Teresa Collins paper as well.
The 3 kids are in 3 different schools but so far it is not a big deal. They are happy and enjoying their schools :)

Project Life Week 34

Back with another Project Life update!

Week 34 was another 2 page spread as we were on vacation and celebrated a birthday as soon as we returned from our trip.

I included some packaging from my son's birthday gift and also some printed material from the hotel we stayed at on our trip. Again I added journaling directly to some of the photos.

Here is a close up of the right side:
I should point out that some of these photos were taken with my iPad3 :)

Here is the left side of spread:
My favorite photo here is the upper right photo as the kids are singing happy birthday to their brother :)

Tune in again in a few days for more Project Life layouts :)

Project Life 2012

So I caught up with PL and am now a few weeks behind. I have taken very few photos so I have the photos printed out but I have not put the layouts together yet. I have been saving receipts and such to include on the layouts since I don't have many photos.

Anyhoo, here are a couple of PL layouts:

Week 32
O.k. the left side is week 31 which I have already posted so week 32 on the right side. My family was gone camping this week and the Olympics were all over t.v. I adding journaling directly to one of the photos in PSE. The London 2012 image was printed from the web.

Week 33
Yes that's right, the rest of family returned from camping and I did laundry and we packed up for our family vacation to Chandler, Arizona. We had a FANTASTIC time, I love vacationing with my family!
Here is the right side of the 2 page spread, yes one of a handful of two page spreads in my PL ;)
More layouts to come, thanks for looking!

Tag You're It!

We played a round of card tag and a tag tag at Scrap Shotz and this is what I came up with.

Those penguins are just too cute along with the SC stars!

I have had this embossed paper for soooo long it was great to use it along with my embossing gun for this glitter embossed image.

Every Day Life...

I have always enjoyed taking photos of the events around our home in our day-to-day lives so I often have a bunch of photos that are not "event" based.
This is one of my favorite kind of layouts capturing a period of time in the life of our family, ordinary yes, but unique to us.

Happy World Cardmaking Day & Scrap Shotz Fave of the Week

I wasn't sure I would have any time for crafting today as I was hosting my side of the family for Canadian Thanksgiving but the guests came early and left early.
So I combined my Scrap Shotz Fave of the Week*Lift* with WCMD and created a card based on a layout I love by one of our Scrap Shotz members.

This is the card I created:
You can see the layout I was inspired by here .

Thanks for looking!

Have you heard of this game? It's a computer game that seems to be very addictive. I don't really understand the attraction as the graphics seem "old school" to me but in a nutshell you build stuff with blocks, anything your imagination comes up with. You just have to build your shelter before the monsters come out at night time.
The boys can spend hours playing this, one in particular would stay online all day if he could get away with it. Thank goodness for school and baseball to take up some of his time :) .

This is the first of what I am sure will be many layout topics about the game.

I cut the American Crafts "Chap" paper into squares to mimic the squares used for building in the game. The kids spent a lot of time playing the game while we were away in Arizona for Christmas last year. It's hard to tell but my son is Facetiming his friend on his iPod back home and they are playing the game together.

Thanks for looking :)
