Project Life Week 30

Can you believe it?! Five months till Christmas?! Nope. I'm so not ready to even think about it! My youngest just went back to school 2 weeks ago! Okay now back to our regular scheduled program...

Here is my spread for Week 30! And yes, I do skip around. Until I am caught up, this is what works for me. =) I used a bunch of different manuf. products on this one & love it! I did decide to just use the Project Life kit by Becky Higgins: 5th & Frolic. This cut my time down by half I bet! Instead of using a 6x6 paper pad and taking too much time to decide the perfect paper to back this photo & that. 

Yes there I am! I'm trying to include more ME in my PL pages. This way, my girls know mom existed when they look back years from now! How often do you appear on your pages? 

Gotta love sparkly Thickers & sequins!

I did journal quite a bit on this spread. I feel the need to explain the moment/details so when our girls go back to look through, they are not left wondering what/why am I doing this? I used a bunch of tiny stamps too by Citrus Twist Kits. Love.

This corner photo I split, simply because it didn't fit. I like using the 4x4 photos I print on my PictureMate Show PM300 printer. They're bigger & because I don't have many PL page protecters to choose from, I make my pictures & PL cards work! Have you tried splitting a photo yet?

I love how my journaling card came out! My globe was cut out by my Silhouette and stamped. Now my youngest can pull card out by tab and read all about her first day & her new school. 

I miss creating my Project Life spreads. Time and the fact, my Mac was out of order for nearly a month didn't help any. I'm back & taking time for me. Including massages at my chiropractor's office  and yoga DVDS my husband had bought me. This body so desperately needs it. 

Have a great weekend!
