Week 16

I'm back with another project life update!!  This week was very low key as Savannah was still getting over her stomach bug.  We got some nice weather so we got outside a lot this week!!  We were able to capture one of Camden's obsessions right now with going to get the mail every single day.  I love Project Life!!

My favorite picture of the week is Sawyer getting into the pantry.  He is getting into everything!!  

For this week I used the Kiwi Kit.

Until next week!!

Week 15

This week was a very low key week as Savannah was sick from Wednesday to Sunday this week. We ended up canceling a trip to PA over the weekend and she was out of school Thursday and Friday.  The boys did make it to the playground with Daddy on Saturday so they enjoyed having the nice weather to play outside in.  We also got a video of our little guy crawling.

My favorite picture of the week is Sawyer in the swing since he loves the swing right now.

For this week I used the High Five Edition.  It was fun working with this kit as I'm a huge fan of all of the bright colors!!

Until next week!!

Project Life Week 13-14

I'm back with two more weeks to share with you!  I enjoyed using both of the new kits that were released last week and this current week!

Week 13 - March 23-29, 2015

This week was pretty low key.  We got some nice weather so we were able to get the kids outside and it was awesome!!  I was able to capture some artwork that Savannah and I did together, a decluttering session (with Sawyer's help) and some pretty cute pictures this week!

My favorite picture for this week is Camden's face in the bottom picture.  He makes that face all of the time and I'm so glad we have it photographed.  I'm sure he will love it when he gets older!!

For this week I used Heidi Swapp's Favorite Things kit which was a lot of fun to work with!!

Week 14 - March 30-April 5, 2015

This week started out slow and then toward the end of the week we got a little busier with Easter on the weekend.  We had more nice weather and our resident photographer was still testing out some lighting and such so we got more cute pictures of the bigger kids this week.  

My favorite photo of the week was Savannah's close of with her face in her hands.  I love this photo not only because it's cute, but she has marker on her hands.  This girl is so into coloring and drawing right now and she has marker on her hands almost all of the time.  

The kit I used this week was the Cathy Zielske Value Kit.  I loved working with this kit!!  I have been a fan of her digital products for a long time and use her brushes quite a bit so I was so excited for this to be released!  Remember this is for sale this week in the digital project life shop!

I'm still working on a page for Easter using another kit that I have from Lori Whitlock so that will be documented!!  Until next week!

Project Life Weeks 8-12

So I have been slacking at keeping this blog updated!!  I do stay mainly up to date on my weekly pages which is good, but when it comes to blogging them I just can't get into a consistent routine!!  So anyway without further ado here are the pages for the last 4 weeks!!

Week 8 - February 16-22, 2015:

This week was a special week since our oldest turned 5 and our baby turned 6 months.  We had well baby visits for those two and some snow so my husband got to work from home or have days off because of the snow which was awesome!!  The kids loved playing in the snow!  I also took Savannah on a little shopping trip to get her some much needed clothes and spend her birthday gift cards.

My favorite picture of the week was the one of Camden in the snow.  He is so hard to get pictures of these days since he is at that age, so I love when we can get a cute natural smile of his!!

For this week I used the azure kit from Becky Higgins.  I enjoyed using this kit and loved all of the butterflies!!  I also used a card from Baby Kit for Him for the stats for Sawyer's 6 month check up.  I used a brush from Cathy Zielske and some Ali Edwards  brushes as well.  I love both of their brushes!!

Because this week was a birthday week I ended up doing another layout with our birthday kiddos.  I used a Lori Whitlock birthday kit for Savannah's pictures. I love her kits too, such bright vibrant colors!  For Sawyers pictures I used the Boy Themed Cards which is another favorite of mine from Becky Higgins!!  

Week 9 - February 23-March 1, 2015

This week was a lot of snow/ice and just normal routine.  We had a fun day at a local school open house on Saturday, but otherwise just routine normal days.  

My favorite pic of the week was the picture of Sawyer in his little bear hat.  This captures him so well.  He is such a pleasant baby and loves being able to go out no matter how much he has to get bundled up and I just love his cute little hat!!

For this week I used Maggie Holmes Edition and more Ali Edwards brushes.

Week 10 - March 2 - 8, 2015

This week was more snow!!  Blah!!  I also documented a passing of a wonderful man this week and some more firsts for Sawyer.  I love that Project Life allows me to capture these little firsts until I can get caught up with the kids baby books!!  

My favorite pictures of the week are the three of Sawyer.  I mean how cute are those smiles?!?

I used the Heidi Swapp Dreamy Edition.  Loved the light pastel colors of this kit.

Week 11 - March 9-15, 2015

This week was spring break for Savannah and my mom was on vacation so the kids and I spent the week with my parents.  Wonderful week!!  We spent time with family and just relaxed.  

My favorite picture of the week is Sawyer cuddling with my mom.  We don't see her as often as I would like so it's always special when she gets some time with the kiddos.  

This week I used one of my all time favorite kits the Aqua Edition.

Week 12 - March 16-22, 2015

This week was the week of St. Patrick's Day.  We had a great week with some good weather in the beginning of the week and then snow toward the end of the week.  We went to the local St. Patrick's Day parade as we do almost every year since Savannah was young and had a great time.  

My favorite picture of the week is the black and white picture of us walking in our neighborhood.  

This week since it was St. Patrick's Day, I purchased Lori Whitlock's St. Patrick's Day kit.

This week Sawyer also turned 7 months so we ended up taking quite a few pictures of him with some studio set ups that Rob (Buddy) was testing out for photography.  I love these pictures.  He is so cute!!  He also had his first solid food of graham crackers. He did awesome! And yet another first documented by Project Life!!  I used the Boy Themed Cards for this layout as well.  

And that's all for now!!  I'll be back (hopefully soon) with Weeks 13 and 14!!

Week 7

Week 7 was another pretty typical winter week for the beginning, but the end of the week ended with a birthday party for our sweet Savannah.  We spent a lot of time indoors at the beginning of the week cleaning and getting ready for the party and guests started arriving on Thursday starting with my mother-in-law.  My family came Friday night and everyone stayed through Sunday.  We live about 6 hours from family so when they come we host everyone for the entire weekend.  Talk about a full house!  11 people in all, but it's wonderful to have family here.

My favorite pic of the week is Savannah with her cake.  Poor girl is so shy she didn't want anyone around when she blew out her candles or anything so everyone had to leave and her Dad was able to snap this picture of her.  Happy Birthday Savannah! Can't believe she is 5!!!!!

For this week I used the ready set go value kit which was really cute and one of my favorites for this year.  Remember it's on sale this week!

Until next time!! I have a special spread for next week and I'm hoping to catch up with weeks 8 and 9 soon!!

Project Life catch up! Weeks 4-6!

So while I have been keeping up (mostly) with my project life pages, I have not done a very good job at actually posting them on this blog.  It is such a busy season of life for me with my kiddos, but I do like to share my pages so here they are.

Week 4: January 19-25, 2015

Our week was pretty typical for a winter week.  It was cold here so we were stuck inside.  All three kids were starting to come down with a cold so everyone was sleeping  a lot!  I didn't realize until after I completed the page that the page on the left was pretty much sleeping.  My kids are not great sleepers so I knew we were in for something since they all were sleeping a lot!  Sure enough all three kids got hit with a nasty cold at the end of the week and over the weekend.  Poor babies!!  Also my baby turned 5 months so we took his pictures and documented some of what he's up to these days.

My favorite picture of the week was the black and white of Sawyer sleeping.  My husband (he's the better photographer) has captured each one of our kids sleeping close up and I love them so much!!

For this week I used the desktop edition, which I loved using.  I loved the orange in this kit!!  I also really like to highlight some photos on my pages so I started with a template A design and modified the right page to highlight the picture of my littlest man.

 Week 5:  January 26-February 1, 2015

This was the week of sickness around here!!  Blah!  On Monday Savannah complained of an ear ache so I took all three kiddos to the pediatrician.  Our pediatrician is about 45 min away so I asked them to not only check her but check the baby too so we know if he had any ear infection so I wouldn't have to bring him back in a day or two if he didn't get better.  Both kids were positive for ear infections and they were concerned with Sawyer's breathing so we started breathing treatments with him every four hours.  My poor munchkins!!  Anyway, then for the weekend we were in need of an outing so we went to Chic-Fil-A to play and get groceries etc.  It was a good way to end our week of sickness!!

My favorite picture is the one on the bottom right of Camden and his boxes.  This boy is obsessed with boxes and mail and right now it drives me crazy, but when he's grown I will have this phase of his documented and I love how that one picture tells his story right now!

For this week I used Be Bright themed cards.

Week 6:  February 2-8, 2015

This week was finally a little break in the cold and we were able to get outside!! YAY!!  We got the baby swing out for Sawyer for our swing set at home and the big kids loved pushing him and Sawyer thought the swing was great! Camden also started pedaling his bike on his own!  YAY!!  On Sunday, I had to work for a little while, but got out early and so we were able to take the kids to the playground to get some more fresh air before the weather got cold again.  It was awesome getting outside for just a little bit!

My favorite picture of the week is Sawyer sticking his tongue out.  It's his current finding and now he loves to stick his tongue out.  He will smile and a second later, out comes the tongue!!  I always have a ton of pictures of Sawyer, but he's so cute and doesn't move so he makes for an easy photography subject!!

For this week I used Noted themed cards.

Well that's what I have for now.  I am still working on weeks 7 & 8 and hoping to finish those up this weekend as they were big weeks for us with birthday party for Savannah and Sawyer turning 6 months already!  Until next time!!

Week 3

It's Monday and there are some new digital goodies coming out today!!  This week I used the Journal Themed Cards found here.  I enjoyed using this kit and the journaling pages which are 6x8 are really cute too.  I actually used a journaling page and clipped it to the clipping mask in the picture of my son with his boxes.  There are also a few other kits coming out including the My Story kit which I'm so excited about!

This week was another ordinary week around here.  It was school for my oldest and my son's co-op school started again this week after a break for Christmas.  Our golden retriever, Daisy celebrated her 9th birthday this week.  We finally had a Saturday off together with nothing to do so we took advantage of it and went to a local indoor kids gym, did some shopping and went out to lunch.  Fun family day!!

My youngest got his first bath in the big bathtub this week and I love the fact that with one picture and some journaling I can tell the story and have it documented with little fuss!  In fact, I look back to my Project Life albums from the past years to see when the big kids reached certain milestones or when we went somewhere etc.  I just love this project so much and how it's such a great documentation of our lives!! So without further chit chat here is week 3!
