PROJECT LIFE AND #2 GREEN PROJECT

This month is flying by, wish it would slow down. We've had great weather this week and so a lot of time is spent outdoors, HOORAY!! I'm showing a few of my Project Life pictures for the week and then I am posting my 2nd GREEN PROJECT for this week.
Here is my nieces coming over on the bus to play with Sam, they love coming over and playing.
That's all we did was hang out in the driveway enjoying the warm weather.
Isn't this gorgeous, probably my fave picture of the week. This was about 7:10 in the morning. Deb I think you will like this photo, thought of you when I took it. LOVE THAT SKY!!
This is what it looked like in the front yard, the sun was shining into the backyard and those big clouds from the above picture were moving in. I love seeing natures beauty each morning!!
Shopping for spring clothes and for field trips, they had fun shopping.
My favorite soup was on sale for a $1 a can, HOORAY!!  I eat this everyday for lunch, so yummy!
We grilled out to celebrate this WARM weather we are enjoying!!
Here is my GREEN PROJECT #2. I decided to do an art journal page for this week. On the right side is all my green acrylic paints with a little bit of gold sprinkled in. Click on the image to see better. On the right side is all my green watercolors mixed together, I like how it looked all mixed in. Came out just the way I wanted. On Friday I will post how my journal page comes out. Next week I will show you the full week and my pages for Project Life, I need to order more pictures and get it ready. It's mostly made up of collages for all the special occassions we had this week. I'll be back tomorrow with my #3 Green Project!!! Have a great day everyone!!

    1. I love this warm weather too, it's just right for us. The soup is good, have been eating it for almost 2 years now for lunch. I know kinda weird but it's how I keep track of what I eat.

    I loved seeing the photograph of the kids playing - chalking onto the driveway... brings back memories of when we used to chalk hopscotch games onto the pavements to play :)

    1. Hi Tracey,
      They were so cute shopping, lots of giggles and trying on SPRING clothes. They got the cutest things.

      I didn't know you liked green, how about that. You should jump in and do a green project with me.
