Hello, it's Project Life time again!! I had fun adding all kinds of things to this week's pages. The first thing you will notice is the SNOW, lots of SNOW!! Just when it was offically SPRING on the calender the snow came into town again. I have to admit it was magical and pretty all over again, kinda like the beginning of winter. Thankfully it's not and spring is just taking it's time coming this year. So we tried not to complain too much and make the most of it. So I went walking thru the snow and took pictures and some thru the window. That bottom right one on the left side is my favorite, love all the trees covered in white again. Sam of course had to built another mountain of snow to play on. My weekly card is stamped with a snowflake and the bottom yellow/green one almost was going to be my title card but figured the snowflake was more real for our week. The picture next to the weekly card is my wallpaper on my phone, finally changed from witner to spring, think I jinxed it and that's why the snow came, ha! I tried to add a little writing to each picture, love love doing this. More and more now I really want my words with the pictures not beside them, right on them even makes me happy. The other part making me happy this week is that Renee and I are in this week together again, hooray for that! We both went in for haircuts and our hairdresser took these for me, they came out sooooo cute!! Look how tall she is next to me. Our hair looked so pretty and now neither one of us can make our hair do this again, haha. It was a nice change of styles for us both, decided not to go short like we first planned. See the sunlight in the top right picture, LOVE THIS!! I never get tired of any sun type pictures, they will always be in my pages. Same with the one in the middle row of Sienna in a ponytail playing in the window. She was so sweet and building her own thing that morning, I was just watching her and amazed at how fast time is going with her. She also read to her brother and did so well with that also, they can be so cute together. I love the ages they are right now.
I did have some more journaling to include so I typed up a page and half to include in an insert for this week. Forgot to take the picture with it so will do that later to show you. Some weeks there is a lot I want to say and wish there was an easier way to include it all. I am happy with the pages though, it was nice to add the little extras to them. Now I am planning on what to do with our Disney photos, I might try to keep it simple and just one added insert and the rest into our first mini album. Thanks for the comments on that post by the way. I thought everyone would like that and seeing the kids that young. They love looking thru it and talking about that time vs. what we will do this time. Looking forward to it and just being together and a break from school/work/chores/routine we need it.
I hope everyone is doing well this week. Hope your weather is making you happy wherever you live. Today was the last day of school and we are officially on Spring Break now, YIPPEE!!! I will be doing another post on Sunday/Monday then that will be it for a couple weeks I think. Going to just enjoy being home with the kids and getting ready for Disney and babysitting. Take care everyone, have a great weekend and HAPPY EASTER WITH YOUR LOVED ONES!! Thanks so much for your visits and commetns they make my day!! HUGS!

DISNEY 2005.... a peek at the past

Hello!! I thought it would be fun to share my mini Disney album from 2005. This was our first time there with the 3 youngest ones and we have been there before with just Kristin. Each time has been so magical and special, it's the only place away from home that I don't mind leaving home for. This is also what got me started in scrapbooking, after being dragged to a Creative Memories party with my sister. I was hooked by the end of the party and she bought me this album and the little Disney kit to get started. I have LOVED telling our story since then. We are getting excited about our next trip coming up soon so I thought it would be fun to share this first album with you. I do have PL ready and will wait a couple days and do this fun post instead. Hope everyone is doing well, we are still getting snow and cold here so that makes going to Florida even more excited!! ENJOY!

Hello Week Eleven!! Why did you get here so fast, wasn't quite ready for you, lol. I had fun with this weeks pages,  a mix of everything. On the left is pictures thru the week and on the right is all about last Sunday and the warm, sunny day we had. It was so awesome having it finally be warm and spring like for the weekend. Now we are getting ready for more snow to fall over the next couple days and cold temps again. Old man winter doesn't seem in a hurry to leave us just yet, dang it.
I used some fun die-cuts that Linda shared with me, love them. Not much green in this weeks pages though, more blue going on. See the journal card in the middle on the left side. I bought a new roller stamp at Walmart, thought this was perfect for Spring time, came out so cute and fun. Need to go back and get the other 2 they had. So that's it for this week, nice and simple with a few special touches that make me happy. Thanks so much for the comments on my last PL post, glad everyone liked all the green. Hope your week is going well, we are doing good here.

With all this waiting we paused long enough yesterday to enjoy just being here, being together, enjoying the almost spring weather. I enjoyed scrapping with my church friends. Being excited about Nancy retiring!! Watching Summer give Sam a big hug when she didn't know we were watching. Eating too many garlic potatoes Rich made, so good! Thankful for a walk at the track, so needed this and loved it. Listening as Rich helped Sam learn a new card game. Watching Summer and Sam riding bikes for the first time this year, love when they play together! Wishing Renee would come out and play more.

Slowing down to appreciate the RIGHT NOW and RIGHT HERE moments is what I enjoy and what fills my heart with peace and joy. Waiting for all these new and excited things to happen makes me more excited for them, the waiting process is always fun for me. So all these things can wait for today again I will just enjoy WHAT TODAY WILL BRING!!

Happy Project Life again!! WOW, this week flew by fast again, wish I could slow it down a little. I love this weeks pages and had fun putting it together. As you can see there is a COLLAGE! Oh it was so nice to see this, this is for the DAY IN THE LIFE last Thursday. I took about 50 photos during the day and picked the ones I liked most and was a mix of our day. I matted it on a red paper and slid it in, love that it has peeks of red to match the color theme this month. On the back of the insert is the daily sheets for that day, I LOVE THESE!! I will be changing this DAY IN THE LIFE from the last day of the month to the 13th of every month instead, just don't like it at the end. So on the first left hand side is my weekly card, adding heart brads to this when I find them. My LOVE card to the family and a newspaper clipping about the year anniversary since the Chardon shooting, still breaks my heart. The rest of the page is mostly about SAM!! He's been a busy boy with his friend Colt, could have put one more of them in here but left it this way. The blank journal card is waiting for me to write still, I like the colors of this. Thanks to Linda who sent me some fun goodies for me to use, SOOOO NICE LINDA!! The collage also has Kristin in it, so happy about that. She's not into getting her picture taken but I snuck in a few. The right page of the week is a favorite too. I had to capture the way Lucky has been laying with Summer lately, usually turned the other way around but like this one too. Colt has been talking NONSTOP and is growing way to fast. Summer and I saw a gorgeous and HUGE moon one night, couldn't get pictures but wrote it all down so won't forget, LOVE THIS! We are rocking to Taylor Swift RED cd, getting ready for her concert next month. The last photo is a little peek at our hearts on the door. THis is the worst LOVE month we've had, need to make sure next year is better. I do love that Sienna and Colt loved when I gave them their hearts, Colt kept holding his and having me read and reread it to him. Sienna loved hers and made me some too. Now I'm ready to add some green to March's pages, so glad because I'm kinda tired of the pinks/reds finally. Have a great week everyone!

Hello Project Life!! Week 8 is on the right but I wanted you to see the whole spread together, I love seeing all the reds/pinks/hearts makes me happy! Nothing to fancy done and I like knowing all my stories got in there. Click on image to see better if you need to. I have started pulling out my green papers and some shamrocks stickers to use for March's pages, looking forward to mixing it up. I have been testing my settings and still can't get them to work, thought I had it but not working. Wanted to share my layouts with you from last Saturday's crop, I did 8 of them!! SOOOOO excited because I never get this many done at one time. Will keep working on the settings and try again later. Have a great weekend and thanks so much for the wonderful comments you've been leaving me. HUGS!
