Project Life Week of October 9-15, 2011

My Project Life Week 4 post will be a bit delayed because it's going to be posted with an assignment later this month. Today I'm posting a Project Life week from back in October 2011. It's really fun to go back and look at the weeks gone by in my albums. It wasn't that long ago but the Fall colors were so pretty and vibrant compared to the dry, brown signs of Winter that are here now.
Looks like we were knee deep in volleyball, enjoying the beautiful Fall colors and we celebrated our anniversary this week.
I remember this moment where Jordan was smiling so big and was surrounded by her teammates. She had just scored 8 serves in a row and the other team called a timeout to break her concentration. Good times.
I used some pretty background paper and a manila tag from my shop for a simple title insert.
The leaves were from a Studio Calico kit.
Beautiful Fall colors that I'm really missing right now. Charlie is now enjoying playing with all those dead gourds that I threw out in a nearby pasture.
Love to put numbers on my inserts whenever possible. Here I show that Jordan's team got 3rd place in their league volleyball tournament.
A text message and some simple journaling done with my vintage typewriter.
New shoes for basketball season + a cute little photo of a kitten that Jordan found on her iPad.
And some collected items from volleyball games + an anniversary card from my folks. These were just stuck in a page protector...I need to go back and do something with them.
Have you set your album out for your family and friends to see? Do you look back on the pages? I love going back to the albums as the photos and stories bring back such good memories. If you've completed a full year or more of Project Life albums, it's fun to look back at photos one year prior to the current date. So for now we would look back at last Jan/Feb and see what Winter was like then compared to our 60+ temperatures we're having now.

Okay, that's it for me today. Now I get the joyful task of preparing my business documents for taxes. Yay me! Bring on the Diet Coke & calculator! I'll be back soon to show you some of the Valentine cards I've been tweeting about. Have a great weekend everyone.

For Sale:
Huge lot of Amuse rubber stamps here.

Michelle,

I love your layout from last Fall. I ADORE those fall colors. I was inspired from you and so many other Project Life bloggers out there to start my own blog. Please check it out when you have the time. I would appreciate any input you might have. I do need to fix my pictures, I am working on that....

Thanks
Toni

Love that you are finishing up your pages from last year - it inspires me to do the same! Wondering if you still have your Amuse stamps for sale? The link is not working - every time I click it tells me the page cannot be found??? I'd be REALLY interested in checking these out because I LOVE the old Amuse wood stamps! :) You can email me directly at mystampbiz at comcast dot net or let me know how to look at the link. Thanks Michelle- your blog is a great inspiration to me for Project Life & PTI! Dana
