Here we are Week 25 - June 15 to June 21 2015, mind blowing that it's nearing the end of June & the ending of school for the kids! I am a broken record when I say that this year is moving fast here, but the school year went even faster.
Full view here of wk 25 - as mentioned before I switched this year from the 12x12 album to the 9x12 & it has felt great to switch - it totally works for me and highly doubt that I will go back to 12 x12.
What happened this week - First thing that pops up in my mind is garden loving, but then date night, organizing, planning, dealing with migraines, watching Ava paint are all here. Written in but not seen is ... walking the dog, talks with Ethan about everything under the sun + I am totally in love with his outlook on life at only ten years old, trips to the store, drop offs and pick ups. LIFE stuff.
These weeks have so much packed into them it seems, but it's not necessary to have it all jammed into my PL don't feel like you need to put it all in - but sum it up. I am - picking and choosing the ones I want to tell each week and that is good enough and to be honest it would feel very boring if I did always add in the "same old same old" each week & after five years of documenting that could be seen.
Really it's all bout our lives & the "here and now" so I run with that I know from experience now that our next month may not look like the before so I know how much change happens in these books - It's AWESOME!
I love using parts of what is going on around us, I used "Bring on Summer" from Ali Edwards digital set and made it into a 3x4 but then when Ava was painting I tried out a little on my own and loved how it added to the Summer meaning super bright colours and then added the "go see do" wood veneers with martha stewart glue pen.
My love for Elise's stamps is no secret by now & they have become a go to for me, but this time I used her digital set she is still selling as a set found here. In photoshop I added the "hers" & "his" in white on our dinner plates. LOVED using white and digital set was super easy to try out different phrases without committing until I was happy with how it looked.
That xo card above is a beautiful mess kit - I subscribe monthly to their kits and have been very happy with the kits so far. "hello there" wood veneer added on top.
That wraps up week 25! Looking forward to ending this part one album of the year that means only one more week in this vol. and we move onto vol. 2 - I love splitting up the albums and have done that after my 1st album it was far too packed and hardly closed and yes once I get more time in the world I have plans to go back and split that one too. It's also a nice break to the year I find when I look back.
Supplies used : Studio Calico kit, tiny attacher, Martha Stewart glue pen,Becky Higgins date stamp, Sharpie marker pen, Avery labels Ali Edwards Digital brushes, Elise Cripe Digital set, Sunshine edition, wood veneers, sewing machine to sew up the page pockets.
