this week, studio calico & basic grey teamed up for a fun collaboration - melanie bauer and i each used the same set of products (the SC 35mm kit (now sold out) + basic grey pb&j 6x6 pad, pins & tags and diecuts) and completed a week of project life. you can pop over to the basic grey blog to see mel's week - and you'll also want to stop by the SC blog, because there are fun giveaways both places. =) i also couldn't resist using the studio calico adventure and good stuff stamps on my weeks - they seen much ink and it was time to fix that!
week 19 // may 5th - 11th : ben's birthday! gardening. oreo moon phases. swinging. guitar practice.
i used the same format that i used for alex's birthday - i devoted most of this page to the event. BIG photo, bit of wrapping paper, and other photos and stories from the day. some of these will make it on to their own LOs, but i love having it all together in one place in my PL album.
diecuts and tags, baby. they're my favorite. so is this photo of ben. i cut the "nine" using the bebas font. and the little bag from 35mm was a perfect place to add more journaling. the pb&j die cuts are actually embossed - hard to tell in the pics, but oh so cool in person!
i just collaged some of the baseball pics from the week - they add up so quickly! trying to keep this project life, not project baseball. ;)
happy thursday! we just got back from school - i had some pto business for next year to take care of. the boys are a SMIDGE bit grumpy about having to come with. now i'm contemplating groceries. we have no bread, no apples, no carrots. i forgot how quickly we go through food w/ everyone home!
(project life is a system created by becky higgins to take the stress of of scrapbooking. for me, its a reminder to pick up my camera and capture the everyday. you can learn more about how i use project life here, and you can find all of my project life updates here. if you want tips + tricks to use the supplies you already have in your stash in your PL album, check out my 2012 : captured class at 2peas.)
