Happy Project Life® Tuesday!

Hope everyone’s week is going well! Here are the pages I’m sharing today – I’m truckin’ right along, trying to get all the way caught up and end the year good to go and start fresh in 2015. :)

I used my go-to DESIGN A page protectors. The kits that I used are: Kiwi, Blush, Honey, a card from the boy themed cards and the Plus One mini kit.

I also decided to do something different this year with our Henry the Elf adventure photos. The last couple of years I have just slipped the photos into the page protectors, but this year I decided to create some 8.5×11 scrapbook pages to document his adventures. I figured I could do 4 layouts with 6 photos on each and then just use two 8.5×11 page protectors and slip them in there. Here is the first layout that I made with photos 1-6.

I used goodies that I had on hand (from LONG ago) and then also used some goodies from the December OHDEERME Embellishment kit from Freckled Fawn. The today stamp, gold stars, gold doodle border (below HENRY), arrow clip on the first photo and the joy and tree stamp are all from the kit. I just LOVE the kit! SO fun and cute! You can see more of what came in the kit HERE and see how to get your own kits in your mailbox every month HERE. LOVE these kits!

Here are a couple of close ups:

Caylin’s Cure Fundraiser Prize Winners

new-caylinscure

I’m so happy to update you all on our Caylin’s Cure Jerry the Bear fundraiser that Caylin and I did last month to celebrate Diabetes Awareness Month and to give back! While we didn’t reach our goal of $2799 for 10 bears, we did raise half of the money needed and so we were able to purchase 5 bears! We are so excited to donate these bears and see the kids’ faces light up as they play with Jerry, interact with him and learn with him. So THANK YOU to everyone who donated, spread the word about our fundraiser, shared it, prayed about it, etc. We can’t thank you enough. Our hearts are full. :)

This past weekend I placed every donor’s name on a ticket for every $5 that they donated and put them all in a bucket (you can see the little video on Instagram if you haven’t ready). Caylin drew the prize winners and I’m excited to announce them below. I will be sending out emails to you all in the next day or two to get your shipping addresses and get you all set up to receive your prizes. Thank you again for opening up your heart and your wallet and helping Caylin and I do this. We are SO grateful. These Jerry the Bears are going to do SO much good and you had a hand in that!

Caylin and I are going to be donating all 5 bears to the Child Life department at the Vanderbilt Eskind Diabetes Clinic (where Caylin goes). There the bears are going to be used to help newly diagnosed children. The Child Life department also puts on Camp Sugar Falls, which is a day-camp experience for children ages 6-12 who have been diagnosed with Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes. We are THRILLED to be able to give the bears to the wonderful folks at Vanderbilt to help so many children. THANK YOU!

Ok, and now on to the prize winners! Yay!

Right Now Challenge: Week 50

rightnow-graphic-2014

Week 50! Happy Friday!

Here’s what I wrote down this week:

  • Caylin, “I really need to tell my Barbies that they can come to me to get their hair done.” Um, ok. LOL!
  • Luke is saying so many new words lately. Here are some of his favorite things to say: Pup (Puppy), Hi, Bye Bye, Jesus, Mama, Dada and Jack. He’s still working on Caylin. He also makes the sounds when you ask him what these say: sheep, lion, puppy, cow and snake.
  • Caylin was watching one of her ballerina Barbie movies and said she’d be right back. Next thing I know she comes walking in with tights on, her neon pink tulle skirt, pink top and pink princess crown necklace. Then she proceeded to do ballet just like on the movie for the next 20 minutes. Too cute. ;)

That’s what I’ve got for this Friday! I hope you all have a lovely weekend!

Make it a good one! XOXO!

Happy Project Life® Tuesday!

You all having a great week? I hope so! I can’t believe it’s already the 9th! Where did this year go? Sigh. I am slowly, but surely getting caught up with my PL pages, so I’m excited about that! Hoping to get all of the way caught up so I can start 2015 up to date! We’ll see if that happens, but either way, I’m still loving this style of memory keeping!

Here are the pages I have to share today:

I used DESIGN A page protectors and no inserts this week. The kits I used were Strawberry, Kiwi and the Playful mini kit. There’s also a We R Memory Keepers card in there, too.

Right Now Challenge: Week 49

rightnow-graphic-2014

It’s Week 49!

Here’s what I wrote down this week:

  • Jack: “What do people do in the wild, wild West, Mama? Huh? I wanna know!”
  • Caylin: “How do you like my mermaid pose? I’m a mermaid on a rock”
  • Jack lost an eyelash and I told him to make a wish and he said, “I want to be a police!”

There you have it! Hope you have a great day and weekend ahead! Make it a good one!

XOXO!
