Project 52 ~ Week #36

The weeks are just flying by and I am itching to get back into my craft studio to create some pages with all the physical products I have stacking up.  However, with marching band season in full force, I am thankful for the Project Life App so that I can keep up with the weekly events going on.

I created this page with the Capture Life kit in the PL App.  There were lots of fun photo opportunities this week & I love how this page turned out.



Have a fantastic day!

Project 52 ~ Week 35

Hi Friends!   My Project 52 page for week #35 features the September Skies kit in the Project Life App.  As usual, we had lots of Marching Band stuff... even some retro uniforms for the Drum Majors.  I also moved my daughter back to college for her final year.



Have a great day!

Project 52 ~ Week #34

Hello Friends!  This page has been done for over a week & I thought I posted it already.  Then I looked and realized it was just sitting here ready to be typed up ~ oops!  My routine has been a bit off this week because my sweet pup had to have surgery last week for a torn ACL.  This is her second one in 16 months... poor baby!  This injury and surgery requires a lot of special care and months of rehab.  The good news is, she is doing very well... so I've very thankful for that!

The top two card on this page are from the Jade Kit and the "Not the Best Day" card is from the Project 52 Fresh Edition, both from the Project Life App.

Thanks for hanging in there with me on my blog.  I'm trying to carve out more time to work on my albums, but it's been hard.  However, on the flipside, I'm that totally involved parent for my son's senior year and having my daughter home for the summer.  So... no regrets there!

Project 52 ~ Week #33

Hi There Friends!  Today I have my next page from my Project 52 Album for Week #33.  This page is a little less band heavy and a little more... well... miscellaneous.  Haha!  Last week was the start of the school year for my son & his it's his senior year!  ACK!  When did that happen!

I used the Project Life App for the page with the Personal Yearbook Mini Kit and the Hello Lovely Edition.  I don't usually mix kits, but I couldn't find a card for the lower left photo that I liked.  I also used a few photo overlays from the Project 52 Edition Photo Overlays kit.



Have a Wonderful Week!

Project Life ~ The Solar Eclipse

Happy Day After the Eclipse!

Yesterday we viewed the solar eclipse with our favorite marching band.  It was so much fun watching the kids reaction to the event.  {Yes, they all had the specially approved glasses}.  I made my page using the Project Life App and a free Solar Eclipse download from Elle's Studio.



Have a Great Day!

One Little Word ~ August Prompt

Hello Peeps!  Last week I was able to get some time to catch up on my One Little Word prompts & it felt great to get back into my studio.  Fingers crossed that I can get in there again this week to create some layouts!

This month Ali Edwards challenged us to print just 3 photos ~ one about where we are right now, one about what we are celebrating, and one about what we are struggling with.   At the moment, this chapter is all about band; I'm celebrating a great relationship with my son; and I'm struggling to get into my studio.  The other big struggle is staying in the moment so I can enjoy each little thing during Matt's senior year. 



In addition to those 3 photos, I found several things on Pinterest meant to inspire me with my struggles this month. I printed those as well as my prompt card for this month, the August Actions card, and the August Reflections card.


I'm pretty happy with my pages for the August Prompt & excited that I carved out time to finish work on them!


Happy Eclipse Day!

One Little Word ~ July 2017

I know you didn't expect to see me again this week ~ SURPRISE!  This morning I finished my July Prompt for the Ali Edwards One Little Word workshop and I wanted to share my pages.

The prompt for July was to express your personal manifesto by creating a mixed media piece of encouraging reminders.  I started out as I usually do, with a printed graphics that I found on Pinterest.



Next I added my Action card for the month and my mixed media piece.  Since I didn't have any stencils and paint, I used an embossing folder and white ink.  Then I added my messages with alphabet stamps.


For the next page, I added my Reflections card and more positive messages form Pinterest graphics and another stamped card.


I love the prompt this month, but I'll be honest that the cards I made didn't really come out like I would have hoped.  However, they are done & I'm just going to be OK with that because it's the message that really matters.

Have a great weekend!

Project 52 ~ Week #32

This summer has been a whirlwind of activities for our entire family.  Matt had his final full week of summer and along with several band practices, managed to fit in a visit to Western Michigan for a trombone lesson and some flight lessons.

For this page in my Project 52 album, I used the Project Life kit called Honey.  It is in the App & I love the cute cameras on these cards.  I thought they were perfect to go along with the pictures from the formal photo night for band.


I'm hoping to get into my craft studio this week and create.  It's been months since I've had time to do anything other than my Project 52 album.  Wish me luck!!

Project 52 ~ Week #31

Hello Friends!

My page for last week centers around the band's prep and the Indiana State Fair track show last Saturday.  Each summer our band performs a goofy summer show, either at Cedar Point or the State Fair.  This year they dressed as carrots with the color guard as rabbits and performed the song 24 "Carrot" Magic.

The cards for this page were from the Awesome Edition card kit.  I love how the colors on the cards coordinate with the photos this week! 



Have a Wonderful Day!

Project 52 ~ Week #30

Hey There Friends!  We are still knee deep in Summer Band, but I did manage to take a few picture of other fun things going on ... like 4H projects, the 4H parade, a fun concert at the fair and a shopping day with my daughter.  We live in Elkhart County (Indiana) and have the second largest county fair in the country (after San Diego). In fact, our county fair is larger than most of the state fairs in the country.

I used the new Sandlot Card Collection in the App and love the bright colors.  I kind of wish there were more cards in this collection because they are so fun.  



Have a Fabulous Weekend!

Project 52 ~ Week #29

A bit Wednesday Welcome to my blog!  Today I'm sharing another page from my Project 52 Album.  Last week was Band Camp for the entire marching band, so it was a very busy week for the whole family.  So this leads to lots of band photos, lots of band themed pages, and zero time to scrapbook anything other than my Project 52 in the PL App. :)

This week I used the Better Together kit from the Project Life App.  I thought the arrows and music notes were perfect for this page.



Have a wonderful day!

Project 52 ~ Week #28

Hey Friends!  Welcome to my blog and another weekly page from my Project 52 album!  This week it's all about band... and guess what?  Now that band has started... a lot of my pages will be all about band. It's what our family does starting in July... well, at least for one more year.  This page officially marks the start of Matt's senior year of band.

I used the Project 52 - 2016 Edition for the cards on my page.   



Have a Wonderful Day!

Project 52 ~ Week #27

Hello Peeps! I hope your week is going well and you are finding time to enjoy all that summer has to offer.  Last week we enjoyed lots of time with family and then I ended the week with our marching band seniors on their Senior Leadership Weekend.  What a blast & a great group of kids! However, it is a little bit bittersweet that my son {and youngest child} is a senior this year... I think it's going to be a pretty emotional year in band.  Band has been part of our family life for the last 10 years and this is it ~ what on earth will I do with all my spare time next year??

For my Week #27, I used the Coral Edition kit for my title, filler and journaling cards.  On the filler card at the bottom of the page, I may add some sort of embellishment or stamp once I have it printed. So far, I haven't printed any of my pages for this project so I may send them off this week.  I'm going print them as 12x12 pages and then I will cut them down the middle with my paper trimmer and display them in a 6x12 album.  I'll post some pictures once I have that done.



Thanks for stopping by today!

Project 52 ~ Week #26

Hi Friends!  I hope you had a sparkly 4th of July holiday! We had a house full of company, so I'm just not getting last week's page posted.  I used the new Dream Catcher kit that was part of the last Project Life App update.  I added the date to the title card and changed the ink color to white.


Have a Fantastic Day!
