Project Life 2016: Week 3

Ugh. I've been a crappy blogger again. So sorry folks. Summer craziness has just overtaken here, which is lots of fun, but it means less computer time for me. But, I do have more spreads of Project Life complete and ready to share. It's just a matter of getting on here and posting them!

So, here's the long over due 2016 Week #3 spread! I really love all the bright, happy colors in the High Five Edition. I've been making a point to try and use as many colors as possible from this edition on each spread and here I got a touch of them all!

Here's a closer look at the left side. I'm really happy I found these weekly title cards that include the calendar. Then, I don't need to worry about having a calendar card in the first week of each month as I have in the past and I like that they fill the pocket enough that I don't need to embellish them. The "This is my happy place" filler card is from the pack of specialty cards that coordinate with the High Five edition and I am glad I purchased them because they are so fun. I used one of my go-to techniques and added a little hand-stitching to the other filler card. It's a great way to create just a little more visual interest to a basic filler card.

And here's the right side! The photo in the upper left of this side is a favorite from this week because it's just so real. I was leaning with my back against the kitchen counter, still in my PJs, sipping coffee and both boys were hanging on my legs just wanting attention. It's such a typical moment that I usually ignore but, even in the midst of the craziness and my desire to just enjoy my coffee, I picked up my phone and snapped this shot. I also love the multi-colored sunburst patterned paper that came in the High Five 6x6 paper pad. I used it here in the upper right along with a postcard I received with a Kal Barteski order. Her handwriting goes really well with the other fonts in this core kit! In the lower right I've got the ancient KI Memories alpha stickers making an appearance again because it's like they were made to go with this core kit...just ten years ago!

So there's week #3! I am going to try and get the next several weeks scheduled to post throughout July because we will be out of town the majority of the month. Fingers crossed I get to it before we leave on the 9th. I hope everyone has a fun and safe holiday weekend!
