So here's the full spread with one insert, I had extra pictures and decided to throw them all in and I'm glad because they came out GREAT!!! Now for some close-ups of each page...
On the left side, I picked out the date card since it matched the pool colors and added a title to it, want to do this more. The bottom right picture is before leaving for VBS, the only one I took of them. When they were little I would take it at the church but they don't like that anymore. I played with the journal cards again and did this cute arrow one that I LOVE! Look at those temps, HOT HOT HOT!!
Here is the front of the insert, MY FAVORITE THING THIS WEEK!! I love all the blues and collages about them in the pool. Click on the image to see/read better, I put titles on each collage kinda describing what each one is about. The journal cards add a pop of fun to the page I thought, notice my new purple/aqua paper tape and butterfly stamp both from Walmart and only $1, can't beat that price. I also added some SUNSHINE stickers to the collages just to show how hot it was.
This is the back side of insert and the right page of the spread. This one took some time because I had to many things for the pockets. Now for close-ups of these pages....
On this insert the top collage is my favorite because Rich took these of me and Colt. I love that he thought to do this for me, he didn't zoom in but I love them anyhow. The journal card with the tag stamped on it reminds me of summer right now. I included Sam's wings form VBS, he loved making this and it just fit in the pocket, still have to write a journal card and put it behind it though. The kids would come in and play on the Wii after swimming so I wanted to document that also.
Here is the right side of the pages. The collage of the sunset was even more beautiful then it shows, love seeing the different sky each night. In the upper right pocket is a list from a scavenger hunt we had at Walmart. It was so much fun to do this and we plan on doing it every couple weeks and even have different ideas for each time. The only rules I gave them was to NOT RUN and WE PUT EVERYTHING BACK WHEN DONE. Sam asked to sleep in girls room and was so happy they wanted him to. My new favorite colors this week are on the journal card with tape, LOVE THIS!
We did smores one day with the microwave instead of a bonfire, YUMMY!! Ended the week with fun shopping with girls photos, they were soooo funny today and it was great to be out with them.
So that's my pages for last week, hope you enjoyed them as much as I did. The week was filled with more artwork by me also, had so much fun and will share them in a few days. Working on a surprise for the kids next month, a new holiday tradition that started last year. Here's a hint... has to do with red and green and twinkling lights????? Can you guess???? Will be sharing peeks of that also.
Have a great week everyone and THANK YOU FOR ALL THE SWEET COMMENTS ON MY LAST POST WITH MY ARTWORK, MAKES MY DAY!!!
