A few weeks ago when I ventured off of the strictly Clementine path I had been using for my Project Life album I was a bit scared it would cause me too much angst each week when I actually sat down to put the pages together. But exactly the opposite has happened!! In fact, I have started to treat each week as a challenge and have slowly been going through my digital scrapbooking folder trying to use kits I have never used before. (I use charm parks of entire fabric collections for the quilts I make, so why not do the same with a scrapbooking kit right!?)
Some of the kits (like the one I used this week) are not even my style anymore, but I figure if I use them only once it will justify the expense. This week’s kit is Loopty-Loop from TaylorMade Designs, a kit I bought in 2008 when I first started. Definitely much darker than I scrap with currently–but I still like how this week’s pages came out. (Even then I had to have me some polka-dots!) Somehow I had these pages done by Saturday morning this past weekend, which I completely don’t understand given the week I had….perhaps I was so worried about falling behind that I squeezed in every little moment I could!
Here is the Left Side:
This page had a lot of journaling about Marie’s bout with the Chicken Pox, our trip to the park last Sunday with the neighborhood girls, and a snippet about Holly’s tiara. I don’t know where that tiara even came from, but she wears it all of the time. The funniest part about the whole thing is that the tag is still on it–and she refuses to let me cut it off. She claims it’s an earring.
I took some photos of Marie on Monday before the spots came on strong, which was fortunate or the poor baby probably wouldn’t be seen in this week too much. (While she is healing and feeling so much better, visually it does still look a bit scary.)
Here is the Right Side:
This side tells the story about Holly’s love of birdwatching, Marie’s love of her lie-down fisher price toy, and pictures of two of Holly’s favorite games right now. She loves to play doctor with her animals (thanks to Disney’s new show Doc McStuffins) and she loves to paint rocks outside and have them be “cupcakes.” Such an imagination my girl has!
