Project Life 2013 - Week 8 and 9

Week 8 and 9 were combined together because I didn't take a lot of pictures those weeks. And I am okay with this. I started Project Life as a way to document our lives but also because scrapbooking is fun and a creative outlet.  I don't want it to become burdensome so I am taking a no-stress approach to it.  I will continue to combine weeks if I don't have many pictures.  I am also not stressing that I was almost 10 weeks behind.  I will eventually catch up even if it is just me stuffing in photos and filler cards with minimal journaling.

Title card:  This week I used a 4x6 from Studio Calico's Front Row PL kit and the alpha from the scrapbooking kit.  I also used some of the awesome SC exclusive Basic Grey micro alphabet stickers that have been coming in our PL kits.  I LOVE those alphas and could use them in every color.  Right now I am hoarding them which is why you don't see them on many of my layouts.  Once you put them on a page they are gone, right?  I need to get over it and just use them!

Connor had his karate yellow belt promotion this week and I really went to town on scrapbooking the pictures.  I used paper from the SC Front Row Scrapbooking kit but also Basic Grety Fact or Fiction alphabet stickers and some stars from Twine and Ink that were in the Block Party kit.  The wood veneer is from Michael's Recollection line as is the quote card a couple of spaces below.

The most awesome, bright and happy washi tape is from Doodlebug Designs and I am so in love with it.  The bright happy colors make me happy.  I made sure to include a picture of Connor's beloved Skylanders in this week's spread.  He was playing a modified version of CandyLand with them. 

I think this is the first time Jordan shows up in the PL album.  I definitely need to work on getting more pics of my stepkids in the limited time there are here at our house!  Other small details include using more Studio Calico wood veneer (camera) and labels (night out pic).  The Hello card is also from SC's Block Party PL kit.

Thanks for looking and happy scrapping!
