{Project Life} Week 7

{Title Card}
There was a lot to document this week – 12 on the 12th, Valentine’s Day, my mom’s birthday, and a party for a friend of ours who is going overseas for work….  A lot of little pieces of memorabilia to keep, too.
{Left Side}
I really only have one “normal” page this week.  I included a photo of the super cute Valentine’s cookies I ordered for Marley’s class, a photo of my hubby and his girlfriend Dakota (who thinks she’s human rather than canine), a photo of the book I read in 2 days flat (The Hunger Games – awesome!), and a photo of all the boys together at a party for our friend who is going overseas.
I used one of the 6×12 page protectors by Becky Higgins to wrangle some of this week’s memorabilia.  Marley won 4 tickets to the Atlanta Zoo so I made a color copy of the 4 tickets and included those in the album.  Also included – a sweet card from one of my friends and Marley’s Valentine’s card from my mom.
{12 on the 12th}
Just as I did on January 12th, I took 12 photos on February 12th – a day in the life kinda thing.  I took all 12 with my camera on my phone.  So much easier for this kind of project.

I printed each photo as a 4×4 square image and arranged them in a We R Memory Keepers page protector.  I made the journal cards on Picnik using the same process I used to make my printable charts.
{Valentine’s Day layout}
Another We R Memory Keepers page protector here.  I included a photo of Marley handing out Valentine’s at school, as well as a photo of my gift from Mark and a picture of the two of us.  The 6×8 space was perfect for the card my hubby gave to me.  I filled the final 4×6 space with a journal card that I embellished.

I used chipboard letters (M for Mark and K for Kirsten) to show M + K = <3, and threw on a few heart stickers around my journaling.
{Mom’s Birthday layout}
Thursday was my mom’s birthday and I surprised her by inviting her friends over for a card night.  She had no idea 🙂
{Birthday journal card}
I used this really cute PNG file from Plucky Momo‘s Celebrate You kit to create a 6×8 journal card for mom’s birthday layout.
We had a great week, and another one coming up.  My daughter’s 10th birthday is the 22nd with her party on the 25th, so you can bet that next week I’ll have several more pages to share!

  1. You had so many things to celebrate this week. So fun.
    Love your heart cookies. So lovely to look at.
    Love your photo of you and the hubby making the heart with your hands. I keep thinking I need to get my hubby to do that with me. It’ll take some convincing 🙂
    Lovely pages this week!

  2. Oh my… is Marley curling her eyelashes?? I was scared to curl my eyelashes until I was at least 25! Hahaha! Kids grow up so fast!
