Right Now Challenge: Week 16

Happy Friday, everyone! Praying you all are having a great week and that your weekend ahead is great, too! ;) Jotted down a few things I wanted to remember this week. Here they are!

  • Jack: “Mama, I want to broom the floor.” He totally meant SWEEP. ;)
  • Caylin: “The cursive letter Z is SO stupid looking. No offense letter Z.”
  • Luke LOVES to roar now. Michael and him will roar back and forth and it’s just the cutest thing. He’s got a great roar and loves lions now, too. ;)

Have a blessed day! XOXO!

Project Life Tuesday

Happy Project Life Tuesday!

For this week’s page spread I went back a week just because I wanted to share my pages with the OHDEERME embellishment kit last week. These are the pages that come before the ones I shared last week. :)

PL1

Here’s a shot of both pages. I used DESIGN A page protectors (my go-to page protectors) and also I used the super cute 6×8 DESIGN 4 page protector, too for a little insert that I’m going to talk to you about in just a bit! ;)

I used the Confetti Edition that I designed as well. Also scattered throughout the cards you’ll see some older scrapbook label stickers from October Afternoon (I can’t get enough of those – they are PERFECT for Project Life!) and of course my Project Life date stamp and my Tim Hotlz tiny attacher. :)

PL2

Here’s the left side. :)

PL3

Here’s a close up of this 4×6 card. Luke had these SUPER adorable monster PJs that I got him late last year. He LOVED them and wore them ALL of the time (at his request) and well when he outgrew them I was so torn. I wanted to keep them in his little baby box that I have for each of my kids, but then he got this big chocolate stain on the top and I thought hmmm … I could totally just cut out a couple of these monsters and put them on a 4×6 card and so that’s what I did. Honestly, his baby box is a bit full (can we say I have a hard time letting go of my babies things?) and so this was the perfect way to incorporate this sweet memory and these sweet jammies. ;)

PL4

I ALMOST thought about redoing this 4×6 card because I was a bit too energetic when I stamped the date and so it’s messed up a bit, but that’s REAL life and so I just left it. I can’t stare at it too long though! Hahaha! Moving on! ;)

PL5

Another close up of the left side. :)

PL6

This is a 4×6 photo that I just put some stickers on and some alphabet stickers from a Studio Calico Project Life kit a month or so ago back. Yep, that guy’s name is “Wally.” Wanted to remember that. That’s Jack’s little friend. ;)

insertfront

This is the front of the insert that I included this week. Once every year I love to do a little “currently” type thing for my kids and I ask them the same questions. So for Caylin, I thought it would be a neat idea to use this little 6×8 page protector and include a “currently” card, a recent photo of her and a few other little goodies about her.

insert3

The green “hello lovely life” is from my Confetti Edition. I actually just cut it out from a 3×4 card and then paced it on a plain 3×4 card using some foam squares for a bit of dimension. All little embellishments are from Freckled Fawn. :)

insert4

Here’s a close up of the little “currently” card and the “REMEMBER” card is from my edition as well. :)

nsert-back

Here’s the back of the insert. She wrote her name on one of the lined 3×4 Project Life cards and then I included this sweet little post-it note to me on it as well. The little wooden heart is from Lawn Fawn and the epoxy heart and stamp are from Freckled Fawn.

insertback2

She also drew this little piece of art for me to slip in and then I included a picture of something she is loving right now – Pikachu! ;) I’m thinking I’ll do the same for both Jack and Luke, but mix it up a bit with what I include since they can’t really write their names just yet. It’ll be a sweet way to look back on them this year though, I think! :)

PL7

Right side. :)

PL8

I was sure to get that RIGHT NOW card in there and also, of course, I used a photo template from my friend Tracy to get those three pictures on that 4×6 photo. :) Love how you can add a little title or caption, too!

PL9

I took a picture of a sweet note Caylin wrote to me on some of her school work and included it on this card. I have a thing for printing my Instagram photos out 2×2 and then putting them on 3×4 journaling cards. I just love it. :)

Of course I had to take a picture when my Confetti Edition arrived at my doorstep for the first time! Eeeeek! I thought that sticker was appropriate for more than one reason! Ha!

PL10

Well, that’ll do it for today’s Project Life Tuesday! Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a blessed day!

XOXO!

Right Now Challenge: Week 15

Happy Friday, friends!

Taking a minute out of this busy day to post the things I wrote down for my Right Now Challenge this week.

Ok, so I’ve got:

  • Me: “Jack, you are going to make some lady so lucky one day.” Jack: “I already do, Mama. YOU.” So true. ;)
  • Jack: “Hey Daddy, your belly is like a bouncing ball with a trampoline on top!”
  • Luke loves cars now. He always has a little car in his hand. It’s so cute to watch him “zoom” them around and play with them.

That’s it for this week’s list! Hope you have a great weekend ahead!

XOXO!

  • The Right Now Challenge is a challenge that I have given myself to jot down some of the simple, everyday moments that happen in my life. Every Friday I post what I’ve written down for the week to hold myself accountable and also to get these little sweet, tidbits into my memory keeping. You can find out more about what I started this challenge HERE.

Simon Says Sneak

I was SO excited to be asked to be on the Simon Says Stamp blog again to spotlight my new Confetti edition! You can see some pages that I put together for my Project Life album using my cards over on the blog today HERE.

Here’s a sneak peek! ;)

Have a beautiful, blessed day and thanks to my friends at Simon Says Stamp for sharing my pages today!

XOXO!

Project Life Tuesday

Happy Project Life Tuesday!

I’m sharing some pages today and using the April OHDEERME Embellishment kit to snazzy them up a bit! ;) I love how the Freckled Fawn kits are PERFECT for adding a bit of depth, texture and embellishing to Project Life pages without being too overwhelming and there’s always plenty of goodies left for other projects, too!

Here we go!

both

Here’s a shot of both pages. I used DESIGN A page protectors and also a DESIGN 4 page protector which is a 6×8 page protector with 4 3×4 slots. I recently got some of them and LOVE them! They’re so cute to add to the middle of your pages. Not sure why I get so giddy about them, but they are just the perfect little size to include from time to time. ;) The kits that I used are: my Confetti Edition (yay!) and I also used a couple of cards from Cathy Z’s value kit.

You better believe that I took a shot of me with my kit before I opened it! Ha! I’m a dork, but it had to be done. ;) The circle photo and the four square photo pictures are both photo templates that I LOVE from my friend, Tracy. Told you I ALWAYS use them. Hahaha! ;)

closeup3

Here’s a close up of the circle photo. Also, can we just take a second to say just how delicious the frozen lemonade at Chick-Fil-A is? YUMMY. Ok, carry on. ;)

closeup2

This little 3-d embellishment that I included in the middle of this 4×6 photograph is from the April kit! It has a little geotag graphic in the middle of it. Super cute!

closeup1

My daughter made me this little “love bug” as she called it the other day. I used a piece of the paper from my 6×6 Confetti pad, cut it down to 4×6 and then stuck this sweet piece on it. :)

insert1

Here’s the front of the insert I used. I wanted to just put some photos of the little egg hunt we had last weekend in it.

insert3

Those yellow letters are in the kit as well and are super cute and versatile! Love the font and the color! PERFECT for Spring/Easter pages and photos! The “hunt” stickers are some SUPER old stickers that I have from way back. It’s time to start putting the goodies I still have to use! SO proud I busted them out and used them! Hahaha! ;)

insert-closeup2

I made a little banner lift thingie for the insert. Just took a strip of yellow cardstock and folded it on the side of the page protector. Stapled it using my handy dandy tiny attacher (LOVE that thing) and then placed a super cute green heart epoxy sticker that’s in the kit directly on it. Done!

insertback

Here’s the back of the insert. Just some more photos and one of my 3×4 cards with some journaling on it about the day. :)

Here’s the right side. :)

right-closeup7

I love this simple photo of Luke. :) I just took an older label sticker that I had (once again from WAY back – I think it’s October Afternoon) and stuck it to the photo and folded the little bit extra over the side. Then stapled it and wrote a little something on it. The wooden butterfly embellishment is in the April kit, too!

right-closeup6

Here’s a close up of that for ya to see. ;)

right-closeup4

I really just created my own little filler card for this 4×6 slot. The yellow polka dot paper is from my Confetti 6×6 pad (LOVE me some yellow AND polka dots) and then the felt embellishment is one of four that comes in the OHDEERME embellishment kit this month. Love how sweet and whimsical it is. Such a great embellishment! It would be perfect on a layout or card, too!

right-closeup2

Couple more cards from my kit and a sweet photo of Luke’s Easter egg bucket. He was so proud of himself!

right-closeup1

Lastly, this sweet rhinestone image sticker is in the kit as well. It’s SO much cooler in person! Love it! Such a unique embellishment!

Well, there you have it! Those are my page shares for today! I skipped two pages ahead of what I WAS going to share just because I HAD to use these sweet embellishments in the kit on these pages with the Easter egg hunt photos, etc. I will post the two previous pages next week here on my blog for Project Life Tuesday! I hope you’ll be back then!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to follow me on Instagram! You can find me there by searching: imonehappymama.

Have a blessed day, everyone! XOXO!
