After three of four weeks of posting 6-10 days late, here I am at Week 43 posting four days before Tuesday. Here’s to being motivated! (Or here’s to having free time again. Or maybe it’s here’s to having a house full of people that go to bed at 7pm on a Saturday night so what else am I going to do but scrapbook?!! It’s really any or all of the above….)
This week came together so easily. Bought a new kit that I really loved working with, and had a lot of great photos of the girls enjoying the fall. We even had our first show of flurries this week too, but I couldn’t get a picture of it to come out with my iphone. I was going to notate it somewhere here within the layout but I just ran out of room. I have a feeling that next week will be just as fun/fast to put together–it will be Halloween after all!
I am back to posting big this week. I loved the page too much to make it little:) For the first time I used a 4×6 in it’s entirety in the title card spot–love that. And the subway words brush? Love love love! I have quite a few of them, even one for Halloween next week. I love everything Karen Lewis does, so if you’ve never seen her work I urge you to check it out.
The rest of the page is made up of impromptu leaf parties, Holly showing off her birthday shirt, and a picture and description of her party. Come to think of it, her birthday party was actually part of week 42 wasn’t it? Oh well….it doesn’t matter! I can’t keep everything straight anymore…and years from now, when I look at this, I am sure I won’t remember that my “Project Life Weeks” ran Sunday-Saturday!
This page shows some of the fun Holly and I had at the Pumpkin Patch today, us at her preschool’s “moms and muffins” event, plus some random going-ons at the house. We subscribe to kiwicrate.com, and I have to say I highly recommend it. I Love everything they send and Holly is super excited to get the green box every month with the crafts inside. This month it was shadow puppets, and she had so much fun putting on a show for us with them. (And I am once again impressed with the low-light capabilities of my camera–love how this picture turned out!)
An every day thing I captured were the cookie wafers she always leaves after she eats Oreos. I was getting ready to clean the table and realized that I had never taken a picture of what she doesn’t eat…and since my camera was sitting on the kitchen counter I grabbed a shot. Too funny, and something that I know I would forget if I didn’t get a record of it.
The biggest hit of Holly’s party, and just around the house shenanigans, is Justin’s Halloween mask. This thing is SCARY looking in person, and Holly just loves it! At her party the kids just loved to be chased round and round the yard and in the house–I can’t wait to see the reactions when Justin wears it Wednesday night.
That’s a wrap folks. Off to upload some pages to Shutterfly and watch some TV from the week. Hopefully this week I can begin posting about the 30+ photo sessions I had in the months of September and October, I have so much to share!
