Project Life Tuesday

Happy Tuesday, friends!

Here are my Project Life page shares for the day, too! I’m just posting a bunch on my blog today! Ha!

both

I used DESIGN A page protectors (as you know they’re my go-to) and I used cards from the kits: Midnight and High Five. Oh, and I used a card from my Confetti edition, too!

Here’s the shot of the left side.

The wooden “dream” embellishment is from Freckled Fawn. LOVE them.

That’s my friend Tracie. If you haven’t listened to the Scrap Gals podcast, you MUST! You can find out more about it HERE. They’re a hoot! Chipboard heart from the August Freckled Fawn kit!

I love including little pieces of memorabilia here and there. These movie tickets are an example of just that. I never like to include TOO much because I’m a bit OCD about my albums being TOO full, but tickets are perfect to just staple onto a card.

Yep, we’re the dorks that take a selfie in the movie theater. Come on, you know you do, too! ;)

Here’s a shot of the right side. I included the little hand prints of my kids in this week’s spread since that’s when I did them. I just love it and it’s SO easy to do. If you missed that blog post where I talked about that – you can find it HERE.

Included a photo of the books that my daughter is reading right now. She’s loving these and I’m loving the fact that she’s loving reading. :)

Photographic proof of Jack’s biggest, best fort EVER! ;)

This “right now” card is from Liz Tamanaha. You can find it HERE. The little “now” epoxy sticker is from the August Freckled Fawn kit.

And there you have it. Those are my pages for today! I hope you are having a great week and documenting life along the way! Have a great rest of the day, friends!

Luke @ 2

Sweet Luke just turned 2 earlier this week so I thought it would be a good idea to get down some little tidbits about him at 2. :)

Watching: Paw Patrol, Blue’s Clues, Bubble Guppies and Toy Story (1, 2 & 3)

Loving: Dancing, his little laptop, snacks, naps with Daddy

Wanting: hugs, yum-yums, tickles, a big boy cup with a straw

Eating: granola, bananas, applesauce, pretzels, baby carrot sticks, chips of any kind (his favorite are barbecue) and his most favorite dinner is spaghetti

Playing: basketball, cars (he’s zooming them all around the house), balloons and blocks

Singing: ABCs, Blue’s Clues songs, “Bye, Bye, Bye”

Asking: “yum, yums, please” and “Paw Paw” aka: Paw Patrol

Negotiating: Thankfully  he’s not negotiating for anything … yet ;)

Wearing: Toy Story t-shirt, Marshall t-shirt, cozy shorts, “ip ops” and his little backpack

Looking forward to: his next birthday. He LOVED blowing out the candles and so we did it 3 times. Hahaha!

And this is how he smiles.

Sigh. I love him. Like A LOT. :)

Fully & Fearlessly

Like my new life’s motto?

Who doesn’t want to live life like that, ya know? It’s such a great reminder and I am so glad that my sweet and talented friend, Christine Herrin (you NEED to check her out if you don’t know of her just yet – she is SUPER talented) created this custom design for me using my new motto.

Fully & fearlessly. Yep. I have to remind myself sometimes and sometimes give myself a kick in the butt, but those words speak to me and my heart so much.

Now you go out there and live “fully & fearlessly” too, ok?

We’ve got this!

Happy Wednesday, friends!

Project Life Tuesday

Happy Tuesday, friends!

Last week I was out of town at the Young Living convention in Dallas (SO much fun!) so I wasn’t able to get a Project Life Tuesday post up (whoops), but I did work on these new pages for #myselfiescrapbook that I started a few months back and so I wanted to share them today, even though they aren’t technically Project Life pages. ;)

I used lots of goodies from the August Freckled Fawn kit. They were perfect!

album1

The heart chipboard (bottom right square) and the K letter sticker are in the kit! The “fave” wooden chipboard piece isn’t in the kit, but you can get it at Freckled Fawn HERE. I just love the font. SO pretty!

album2

The little epoxy smiley and the super cute camera paperclip are in the kit! Eeeek!

album3

The wooden star and the heart epoxy sticker are in the kit as well. I want to take a moment to remind all of you Mamas to get IN the picture with your kids! I know if you’re like me you aren’t the biggest fan of being in FRONT of the camera, but it’s important. I’m working on it and well – starting to love it! All of the selfies I’m taking for this mini album is helping it grow on me! ;)

album4

This is just a piece of polka dotted vellum that I cut to 4×4, slipped into a plastic pocket and then added the little camera epoxy sticker from the kit to the corner. Easy cheesy.

album5

album6

album7

The gold arrow sticker is awesome and yep, in the kit, too!

album8

I’m a big fan of acrylic embellishment pieces and this little orange camera piece is just the cutest! I kept it simple and used it just on a white piece of cardstock, but it created a cute page for my album!

album9

Another one of those beautiful script wooden pieces.

albumnew7

I used another heart chipboard from the kit and the gold, glitter hearts are actually from a diecut glitter washi tape that is in the tape. SUPER cute! Goodness!

Well, there you have it. Totally not Project Life pages, but still a super fun share on this Project Life Tuesday! I’ll be back next week sharing some Project Life pages. Gotta go and get some black ink for my printer and get going on that! ;) I hope you are having a great week, friends!
