Project Life 2013 - Week 39

Welcome to Project Life 2013 - Week 39 (September 23-29)

Keep on chugging...keep on chugging.....

Left side of layout. Design L.
 
The title card is from Ali Edwards For the Love of Life Journal Cards, re-coloured with the Redstar Bold font.
 
I didn't add anything to this page. It felt right just the way it was. By the way, yes, that is Violet looking at a Boom Crane in downtown. There's a new big building going up and she was fascinated by it. Also playing with Lego, my Mom canning pickles, another walk in the beautiful fall weather and the leaves on the ground.

Right side of layout. Design D.
 
For this side, I used the journal card from the PL Honey Kit with Times New Romans as the font. More photos of everyday stuff, like Violet helping Keith go through all his WarHammer paint that he got from a friend, my sister Sam's truck in the bottom of a lagoon, my 9-week pregnancy photo, playing Killer Bunnies and 2 photos from our Date Night.
 
The blank space I have is actually 2 journal cards in the physical album that are taped together so that I can include the journaling and the receipt from our date. Kind of hard to do that in the digital layouts. Lol.
 
Keep on chugging.....

Project Life 2013 - Week 38

Welcome to Project Life 2013 - Week 38 (September 16-22)!!

Keeping up with my catch-up post a day so far (finger's crossed)

Left side of layout. Design Q.
 
The title card is from Just Jamie with the Times New Romans font. The quote card I found online (I have a *thing* right now for quote cards). The middle 4x4 is paper from the PL Cinnamon Kit with Lord of the Sith Shadow and Times New Romans font. And yes, that is me with an 8-week Baby Bump. Font is A Yummy Apology.

Right side of layout. Design L.
 
Not too much on this side. 2 texts with Keith (I seriously married the weirdest guy sometimes...), Violet let me put her hair in pigtails and I decided to add a Digital Brush on top of the photo from Ali Edwards Heart Today. I also used another of her digital brushes (the arrow with "love this" where Violet's sitting on Daddy's shoulder) which is from Arrow Sentiments. The journal card is from the PL Cinnamon Kit with Times New Romans as the font.
 
Come back tomorrow for another layout. Finally getting caught up!!

Proejct Life 2013 - Week 37

Welcome to Project Life 2013 -Week 37 (September 9-15)

This week was Week in the Life, and although I'm not finished my actual album yet (!!!), I did a quite layout for this week in PL. No photos, just a card for each day with what I was grateful for and some filler cards to fill up the spaces.

Title Card: Ali Edwards Embracing the Everyday
Overlays: A Vegas Girl Days of the Week overlays

Left side of layout.
 
The Title Card is from Ali Edwards Embracing the Everyday. Each day of the week is from A Vegas Girl Days of the Week Overlays. I decided to stick with the same thing this time around just some uniformity. The filler cards here are from (from left to right): PL Cinnamon Kit, there's a blank space for a card that is in the binder, but I don't have digitally, and a quote that I found online.

Right side of layout
 
Same setup over here, just used a card from PL Seafoam Kit, another blank space for one I don't have digitally, and another quote I found online. Both layouts are Design Q.
 
Come back tomorrow for another layout!

Project Life 2013 - Week 36

Welcome back to Project Life 2013 - Week 36 (September 2-8)

I kind of fell off of updating the blog with PL for the last couple weeks. I have kept up with doing the physical updates, but finding good lighting in my house to photograph the layouts is almost impossible.

So I've decided that although I'm doing this physically, I do set it up digitally so that I can do all my typing and word-art where needed. So I'll just post my digital layouts that will basically look the same as my physical layouts. Win-win for me!

I will be posting a layout a day (except for the weekend) for the next couple days to catch up.

Onto Week 36!

Left side of layout. Design C.
 
The title card is from Ali Edwards For the Love of Life Journal Cards, re-coloured (instead of black) with the Janda Happy Day font. The "Love" stamp was a freebie from Persnickety Prints. The "Loving Life" journal card is from the PL Cinnamon Kit with Times New Romans typing. 
 
This week was busy, but in a good way. A trip to the city, Violet getting to ride Mars (my sister Sam's horse) and a beautiful sunset that I captured from my work parking lot. And playing with Violet and a bubble wand.

Right side. Design Q.
 
Nothing really special on this side. My 6-week pregnancy photo, current craving of Mint Chocolate Ice Cream and some scenery photos.

10 Things Right Now - Violet


1) You are so very happy most days. You always greet Mommy in the morning with a big smile and exclaiming “Mommy!” and always have morning hugs ready

2) You’re doing awesome on the potty training front and even starting to tell Mommy or Daddy when you have to go.

3) You love building things with your Lego and build all sorts of towers all over the house and when you’re done, you proudly show Mommy and Daddy.

4) You love taking showers with Mommy and exclaim “Sha!” when Mommy says that she needs to take a shower. You’ll gladly hop in and play in the water while Mommy cleans up and just love it in there. And say “All done!” when we’re done

5) Your vocabulary is growing by leaps and bounds. You ask to holds “Hands” at the table before we eat, as well as for bedtime prayers. “All done!” is a favorite of yours. As well as “Tah” for your Teddy Bear and “Wa” for anything to drink or playing in water. “Tickle” is also a favorite when you’re trying to tickle someone. “Papa” is for all your Grandpa’s whom you run to when you see them. And "Nummies" for when you're hungry.

6) Your not a big fan of socks and only wear them if you have to wear shoes. Of if the floor is cold. Otherwise, you’re barefoot all the time.

7) You also love to help Mommy find your clothes for the day and go into your pants drawer and pick out pants for you to wear while Mommy grabs a shirt from the closet. And you’re learning how to get them on.

8) Still have a love of shoes and will gladly put on anybody’s shoes that you can find. And when Mommy says that we’re going somewhere and to grab your socks and shoes, you run to your room, grab a pair of socks and then run to your shoes and try to put them on.

9) You love tickle fights with Daddy and squeal with glee when he comes to get you. You also love to play hide-n-seek with Daddy and hide in the laundry closet and then scream in joy when he finds you.

10) You love playing with your cousins and Mommy hears shrieks of joy when you see them coming to the house to play with you.
