Right Now Challenge: Week 29

Happy Friday, friends!

Here’s what I’ve jotted down to remember this week:

  • Luke loves to say, “What?!” now. He says it A LOT.
  • Luke can count to 12. Every time we walk to go upstairs we always count the stairs and so he’s memorized the numbers and loves to say them with me.
  • Caylin is reading so many books nowadays and I love it. Her favorite are the Stink books and Judy Moody. I love that I found her reading in bed one night. Makes me super happy!
  • Jack made a lego “ship” the other day and said proceeded to tell me all about it for about an hour. Then he asked me to take a photo of it so he could remember it forever. Yep, it’ll be in my Project Life for sure. ;)
  • Luke loves shapes and colors. He’ll say the colors “blue” and “green” and when you ask him to say a shape he’ll say “blues clues!” He loves a Blues Clues DVD about shapes and colors. ;)

That’s it for today! I hope you all are having a great day and staying cool! It’s SUPER hot and humid here in Nashville. Goodness! Have a great weekend!!

Project Life Tuesday

Happy Project Life Tuesday, friends!

Y’all having a good week so far? I hope so!

Here are my page shares for today!

I’m using my go-to DESIGN A page protectors and cards from the High Five Edition! My new favorite! ;)

The little label stickers are super old stickers from October Afternoon. I hoarded them, like A LOT, and so I am trying to be sure I bust them out and use them on my pages because let’s face it – I love to put little labels on photos and cards. :)

This little sticker banner label is an old sticker as well from Bella Blvd. :)

The little acrylic heart is from an older Freckled Fawn embellishment kit. Love that I’m able to have some leftover to use down the road and on other projects.

The digital photo template I used from the top photo is from Tracy Larsen. You can find this one and more HERE. LOVE them! You already knew that though. ;)

Another older October Afternoon sticker and that chipboard is from an older Freckled Fawn kit as well! I love using up some older products, especially since I continue to buy some! Hahahaha!

Quick and easy child hand print card

From time to time I will include my kids’ hand prints in our Project Life album. I usually do this once a year and it’s SO easy and takes like hardly no time at all to do. This was my first time doing all three kids’ hands and even with a toddler, a crazy almost 5-year-old and an almost 10-year-old, it took only about 5 minutes to get all of the cards done.

All you need to do these is either some of the Project Life solid white 3×4 and 4×6 cards or you can just use white cardstock and cut your own cards. Then you need some acrylic paint and some foam brushes.

I placed three dollops of each paint (we used three different colors – one for each child) on a paper plate and started with Luke. He did NOT like having his hand painted at all and it took two times to get his hand print just right (the first take had one of his fingers bunched up). ;) The great thing though is that the acrylic paint washes off so easily so it’s quick clean up!

Jack and Caylin were much easier and it took no time at all. I just painted one of their hands, pressed it down onto the card and let them the cards dry for a few hours. That’s it!

Then I stamped the date that we did it on the card and wrote their name and age. I just love how simple and fast these are to do and I know I’ll love to look back on their little hand prints one day. Heck, I already do love looking back on them. ;)

So take a few minutes this week to do a little hand print card of your child or children and slip it into your Project Life album. You’ll love having that extra lil’ bit of their childhood in your Project Life. It’s just the sweetest.

Happy Monday, friends!
