Hello, I have something fun to share with you today. I've been soooo inspired by my creative and sweet friend Shahrul lately, she's been crafting up a storm lately. Lots of fun mini albums, hearts, fabrics, reds, pinks and more. Finally last week with 15mts till the kids got home from school I got to work. Pulling off anything red,heart, pretty, pink off my scrapspace and in my drawer and used some linen as the pages. There wasn't time to measure or make this perfect, this was pure fun and free which is always a favorite for me. I cut up some of the linen into pages and just added a little something pretty to each page. Later I will go back and add stitching around pages and thru some of the hearts. I'm hoping to add some pictures to this also and/or quotes and sentiments about Valentines/LOVE. This really was just what I needed and will do it again. Please stop by Shahrul's blog and see what she's been up too, just today she posted an altered paintbrush and it's gorgeous and fun! Thank you Shahrul for inspiring me and filling my world with COLOR and IMAINGNATION!! I couldn't get blogger to let me text under each picture, sorry for that. This is a busy end of week and I'm going to an all day crop at my church on Saturday which means PL will be late next week. Have a great weekend everyone. THANKS so much for all your sweet comments, they make my day!! HUGS!

Hello Project Life week 7!!! Wow, the days are just flying by now and will continue to fly. The kids are already counting down till the last day of school which isn't until June 6, can't believe it. Ok, let's get onto my PL page for this week. As you can see it's just a one pager, there wasn't enough pictures or stories for a double spread. I also wasn't feeling very creative and didn't have much time to work on this so short and sweet was the plan. Last weeks pages were so much fun and I still love looking at them and all the hearts/red going on so I did bring a little of that into this weeks too. The XOXO card is for Valentines Day, I wrote about our day on the back. Nothing special about this day, my car was in the shop, we went somewhere new for dinner and it was horrible so nothing good about this day. Also notice the first card with the hearts along the side, this is something I started last week and forgot to mention. For this month and hopefully for the year I want to include a LOVE card for my family each week, just a little note about something I noticed or love about them. It's my way of sharing my love for them and just a reminder for me to look for these things and jot them down. This idea came from a blog I read last year and really loved it. So that is it for this week's, you click on the image to see it better. Since this was a one pager kinda week it will be another one for this week so it will be easier and balanced out. I also want to give a shout out to all my PL readers, all of you are doing PL with your own stash and most of you not even using a core kit. WOW WOW WOW!! My hat goes off to you and how each week is uniquely made and takes time and effort. Now that I'm doing it this way too, it's amazing how you have kept doing this for a year and continue to for another year. Seriously, pat yourselves on the back and be proud. I just hope to keep up with you and for it to become easier each week. I had it so easy with the core kits, just slide in the pictures and do some writing and call it done. Now I plan and sketch and shift around photos and lots of cropping, etc. whew it is tiring but makes me more appreciative of the stories and my own personal touch to them. Thanks ladies, you are AMAZING AND WONDERFUL!!! Let's keeping cheering each other on. I will be posting a sweet little mini cloth journal I made inspired by my dear friend Shahrul, she's the one who inspired me to do those trees in December. Her blog is filled with reds/pinks/hearts right now too and I just had to play along. So come back in a couple days to see what I made. Blogger is giving me a hard time with pictures and the text, crossing my fingers this post works. Have a great day everyone!
