Week Two!

I really love how this week turned out visually! I had a lot of fun playing with my new Ali Edwards brushes!

Potty Training!

I added the weather feed from Tuesday--one of our last unusual days--if you skip to next week you see we got our first snow storm!

We had a 3 man band, playing Peyton's favorite song "Tonight Tonight" !

I saved the fortune cookies from Colin and I's lunch date!

Peyton colored on the walls while Colin vacuumed, haha!

Our first snow storm!

I'm also using PL to jot down the funnies Peyton says! This week I put in her new favorite saying ' Its magic!' 

and then a Silly quote from when we were all trying to go to bed. It was so funny and random of her, we were cracking up, and I didnt want to forget it!

If I don't add them weekly, then I want to do a large spread of all the funny things she says either weekly or biweekly!

Week One!

Week One is done! 

Here it is!

This week my sister and my mom came up to visit, so our week was jam packed with fun! I added a few little extra page protectors this week.. 

Our photobooth strip from the mall, I backed it with cardstock, slipped it in an 8.5x11 page protector, cut off the extra, and then stapled up the sides.

Then I took a sheet of baseball card protectors, and put our photos from the photobooth on my iMac, as well as some pictures of Peyton on the carousel. 

I bought a new page protector at Hobby Lobby (heavennn!) In those I slipped in pictures from Peyton playing at the childrens play place in the mall after a long day shopping!

I love how the extra page protectors are smaller and sandwiched in the middle, just to add a little extra and not take away from the whole week!

hehe Love my little cheesy girl.

& Thats it! I am loving project life so far! I just bought a bunch of new brush sets from Ali Edwards and I can't wait to use them in the upcoming weeks!

Hobby Lobby Goodies & Our Title Page

Project Life is in full swing! I am having so much fun with it! This week I have been doing my PL stuff a day at a time. Taking a picture and a story each day and doing it at the end of the night. It has been working really well for me right now and I'm hoping to keep up with this system. I'm sure some weeks I'll have to just collect and do it all at the end of the week though.

Hobby Lobby Goodness

I ran into Hobby Lobby today, and mannn I can just get lost in there. Today I picked up a 12x12 storage box to keep my loose papers in as well as my stamps and ink pads. Its not the prettiest thing, but it was only $6.99 plus a 40% off coupon, and it will work great!

I also am planning on doing a PL style album for my daughter, as well as for my wedding. So while I was shopping I picked up some papers, stickers, and some stamps.

Title Page

I think I have redone my title page 203823x by now. Buttt I think I finally have it just how I want it!

The top row has a picture of all 3 of us from this summer, and then next to that I used a page from a paper set that I have. I typed our name out on a neutral looking page of scrap paper and then punched a hole in the top. I tied my bow with leftover twine from our Thanksgiving turkey. (haha)

In the middle, I have individual pictures of the 3 of us ( I am thinking about redoing Peytons picture, I know I have one of her cute smile that will work!) and then I also added a little piece of paper with all of our ages at the beginning of 2012!

The Bottom row, I used the same piece of paper as from the top, and then a neutral piece of scrap paper to print 2012 on it. I used some funky scissors to cut it down the middle, and then added a strand of adhesive pearls.  The last picture on the title page is of the three of us from our wedding. I looove that picture :)

I'm excited to update later with week 1! I love how its coming together!

Core Kit is here!

Yayy ! Its a few days late because of the holidays but my kit is finally here and I'm ready to play! I have all these ideas bouncing in my head of how I want to start setting it up, and how to include Christmas, and then a fun page for New Years! I can't wait to get started!

I ordered the Amber kit, Design A and Design D page protectors, as well as some extra 12x12 page protectors !

My Album is here !

Project Life supplies are heading my way! Today my album arrived! I ordered an American Crafts Faux Leather D Ring Album in white.

I'm not completely sold on it, and might switch it out later on. It just feels like thick cardboard, and there are some glops of something on it. I do love that it came with some 12x12 page protectors already though!

 I'm not extremely picky so it will do. I'm just not sure how long it will hold up for. I think next time I'm gunna just get a more expensive one that I know will last me years and years :)

Amazon says my PL stuff should be here tomorrow, so I'm crossing my fingers! Hopefully I'll get to see it before I head out of town for Christmas!
