Project Life 2016: Week 2

Welcome to Project Life 2016 Week 2! I totally love the way this spread turned out. Here's a look at the entire spread together...

And here is a closer look at the left side. I love the photo in the upper left of Liam and his classmates at school. It's wonderful that the teachers take these photos and share them with the parents because I want to document Liam's day too! And yes, Liam got stitches in his chin again as seen in the upper right. I made sure to keep the ER ID bracelet. Then, in the lower right I made an interactive pocket....

...I took a Design I page protector and cut the bottom pocket off of it and then glued it on top of my left side page protector. After it dried, I slipped the top "before" photo into the interactive pocket, put the comic book Pow! square on the backside and then placed the "after" photo pictured below in my page protector. I love the way it turned out!

Here is a better look at the right side. I of course needed to include a tribute to David Bowie this week and we, like the rest of the country, had to play PowerBall. I also love using up old supplies like the Cloud9 clear epoxy dots I used on Liam's swim lesson photo.

Week 3 is coming soon!

Project Life 2016: Week 1

So I am working hard on catching up on this year's Project Life before I go back to catchup on prior years. I've got Week 6 on my scrap desk right now so I feel I'm caught up enough to start sharing some of my spreads with you. Remember that I am using the High Five Edition Core Kit this year! 

So here's a look at 2016 Week 1!

And here's a closer look at the left side. This year, I am using weekly title cards from a:bloggism. Because of the way she designed them, I decided to try having my weeks go from Sunday to Saturday this year instead of my usual Monday through Sunday. I wasn't sure if I'd like splitting up the weekend that way but so far, it's been working out okay. I may switch back next year but we will see. 

And here's a closer look at the right side. I've had the bling martini glasses in my stash forever and I realize that champagne glasses would have been more appropriate but this was the best I could do and it felt really good to finally use them!

I'll post Week 2 soon! Promise!

Mother's Day Cards!

Happy Mother's Day to all the mamas out there!

I'm spending today being spoiled by my boys and also getting some scrapping time in! But, I wanted to share the cards I made for Mother's Day this year that I sent out to my mom, mother-in-law and grandma (aka Nana). 

I dug deep into some old kits and found one with lots of Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm scraps that I just couldn't part with. Those types of beloved scraps are perfect for making pretty greeting cards!

I hope you all have a wonderful day!
