Project Life 2017 | Week 22


I knew this was coming. Another one-page Project Life versus two-page layout. This page went together very quick; we were just sitting here watching television in the quiet of the evening, not looking forward to tomorrow when Jeff heads out of town again for his out of town job. We - are doing ok. I - am still finding a groove, but, I'm getting there.

I have to be purposeful about capturing photos and I caught quite a few this week. Enough to tell the stories; tell what happened. For the page, of course. I used One Little Bird Designs digital kit Irving Park. What a cute kit this is! Loved working with it. Normally, I'm prone to change colors but I decided to keep it really simple and let the colors stay true and I think the embellishments compliment the photos well.

People. Salmon. So good!

Peace Like A River! Beautiful book. Reminiscent of To Kill A Mockingbird; it is that good!

Project Life 2017 | Week 21


Jeff was home for the weekend from his out of town commercial construction job. This is a totally new thing we're navigating. I haven't found my grove thing yet. I have an idea of what I'd like my week to look like but I haven't quite gotten there yet.


Since it was a three day weekend for Memorial Day we did a bunch of relaxing which was nice. Leisure making. Jeff did some honey-do's around the house, at his own pace: those book shelf ledges he hung on the wall for children's books for my grandkids. Knocked it out of the park on that one!


We made it out for a mini-date, dinner at Vinnie Van' their pizza. Sooo, good! Jeff put together two end tables that had just been delivered for our front porch (still loving!).

Three of the four of us visited Metro Diner for a Saturday morning breakfast. Ye-es!

Digitally, I knocked out these two pages quickly using mostly One Little Bird Design digital products. I am trying to use my stash (Read: I HAVE SO MUCH!) It's try you can hoard digital product too.

Project Life 2017 | Week 20


I took some time yesterday to complete my Project Life 2017 Week 201 2-page layout. I wouldn't say pocket page scrapbooking is my favorite way to scrapbook but it is pretty close to favorite. This was not necessarily an event-filled week but it was full. From Mother's Day to the culmination of a weeks worth of solid labor-intensive, back-breaking work from Jeff and with help from the boys, our front porch is complete.


It is gorgeous!


Digitally, I used thick days of the week abbreviated brushes. Love them. Plus, word labels. I've decided they are going to be my go-to digital embellishment. I love them, too.

Every day I came home from work I was welcomed with more accomplished on the porch. Giddy.


And, there it is. My porch. Sorry, our porch.
