Project Life Week 9

Spring has sprung here in Florida with temperatures ranging from the mid 60's to the 80's and azaleas and dogwoods in bloom. After such a wordy Project-Life last week, I wanted to keep it simple this week. You can click on the picture to view the credits.

I got creatively stuck putting together page 2. I knew I wanted the math story (in the upper left corner) along with that great smile picture as Kylie holds her math worksheet. And I wanted the Dr. Seuss pictures (lower left corner). But I couldn't figure out how to tie in my remaining stories from the week. I tried different pictures in the other spaces.

I normally use the Amber edition of Project Life. But recently, when they came back into stock, I purchased the Clementine version. On Sunday night, I started pulling out cards and fell in love with that dotted card on the middle row, far right. After deciding that, the rest of the page came together. I was running out of time on Sunday and decided to write out the blue journaling cards rather than use my digital version in Photoshop and type it out. Overall, I'm pleased with how it turned out.

As you know, I pick 2-4 pieces of Kylie's schoolwork/artwork to keep out of the piles and piles she generates each week. This week, I put her math worksheet in an 8.5x11 page protector. On the back, I included a write up on the "holding her pencil" story.

I also put some of her work onto 12x12 white cardstock and write a few notes using a stamp I bought at my local craft store. This week we decided to go to TN for Kylie's upcoming birthday. She got so excited that she started making invitations and drawing pictures of her party like this one.

Kylie enjoys her Highlights Puzzle Buzz magazines. She works them from cover to cover. She and I had so much fun making this checker board. Kylie made the red squares and told me to draw the black ones around them. We sat close to one another taking quick turns until the board was done.

So that's it for another week!

Love your pages, so fun!!! Where did you get the months for your title card for me the week?

Wendy and Karen said...

Wow! Thanks everyone for your comments. They mean the world to me.

Abby, the title card is just a regular date card from the Becky Higgins Amber Edition of Project Life.
