Had fun putting together this week’s layouts with another kit from the digi files–did I mention how much I love the daily digi? I have so many new kits at this point I literally don’t know which one to use each week, let alone what I truly have on hand. (This is, in my opinion, the only disadvantage to digital scrapbooking–I can’t see it all without opening up one too many windows in Photoshop!)
This past week was very, very short on pictures. At one point I wasn’t even sure I was going to have enough, but then I remembered I had taken some photos with my iphone. Love, love, love my iphone. (It’s quickly becoming into the necessity of life category for me…I used to think it a like to have versus a have to have, but now I am not so sure. I would probably be willing to eat bologna and cereal for as long as I needed to in order to keep my iphone!)
Anyhow, I was suffering from a lack of energy and a lack of willingness to even want to deal with writing anything down. I don’t know if I was just burnt out, or if the novelty is wearing off–but it has been really hard as of late to come up with the ambition to work on my PL album lately. Is anyone else going through this?
A few things about this page…don’t you just love the date circle? I stumbled upon this collection at the Sweet Shoppe and just about went nuts. What a great resource to have for labeling! What you may not even realize (I sure didn’t until I opened them) is that you get a layered psd file for each cute tag/circle/etc. I can customize the heck out of that circle with colors and such–LOVE LOVE LOVE! I also am loving digital washi tape. And for the first time I threw on some flowers, which back in the day were my absolute favorite thing about paper scrapping. The Week in Review card is back too. Here is the journaling for week 18:
Sunday was a day at The Farm for the girls. We celebrated Jenna’s wedding shower and enjoyed seeing lots of the extended family. ~ Monday Mom was so burnt out from WITL the week before that no picture was taken, or memory recorded! ~ Tuesday Holly was home from school so we all braved the chillier weather and went to the park. Marie rode the swings! ~ Wednesday was pretty uneventful. Mom spent a large part of the day trying to catch up with her Digital Design class. ~ Thursday a bad storm came through town, making it dark as night in the middle of the morning. Holly had a haunted house in her room with battery-operated candles! ~ Friday was a girl’s night out for mom. A few friends, a few drinks, and a little bowling. Very fun and something to do more of! ~ Saturday Holly was off to the farm to get more dresses and hang with Grammie and Grandpie. Mom, Dad, and Marie enjoyed a quiet house and a BBQ with our neighbors. It was a super fun time!
I was a little tag crazy on this page I can see now! My favorite thing about this page is the princess picture–the girls in our neighborhood are just too cute with their imaginary play. I know that this will be wonderful to look at and remember years down the road.
I am still working on putting together my Week in The Life album. And getting ready for Disneyland in three days. And taking care of a daughter who may have strep throat. (First test negative, but her tonsils are huge so we see an ENT tomorrow.)
