Project Life Week 14, 2012

Edited for questions: The Kraft cardstock that I use is from Papertrey Ink. And for the question about my Project Life process, please see this link that is on left sidebar. I've highlighted some posts that should be super helpful.

I'm back today with Week 14 of my Project Life pages. Becky Higgins has a post today too with lots of Project Life inspiration from the Design Team. Be sure to check out her blog here. Over the weekend we had a celebration for my upcoming birthday, Jordan's 8th grade graduation and Mother's Day. I set my album out on the dining room table and one by one the family started thumbing through the pages. Everyone who looked at my PL album was just amazed that I had photos from every week so far for 2012. They encouraged me to keep going and commented over and over how much of a treasure these albums will be. So if you're struggling to keep up just know that Project Life is worth the time. You can do it!

Here's the full 2 page spread of Week 14.
The left page.
The right page.
And now the 4 x 6 inserts. Charlie carried home a turtle one day while on a walk.
Jordan was checking bird nests for tiny eggs.
A new Spring hanging for the front door.
My freckled face reds.
Charlie got fixed and some surgery on his foot.
Strawberry Shortcake on Easter Sunday.
And now the 3 x 4 journaling inserts. I have to stay that this week was very detailed. I had been missing my scrapbooking so I took my time on each inserts, just getting scrappy and having fun. Here I have a Week in Review insert + a small photo of all the new baby calves. I ended up typing my journaling and cutting it into small words for a lot of my inserts this week.
A few vintage finds and a new kit for the shop. That little stamp from Banana Fish Studios is a new fave. It's stamped on a tag from my shop.
Track results for the girls and a trip to the donut shop. Washi tape, Sassafras paper and more small words.
Hunting trip with Charlie and a chocolate bunny for Josey. More Washi tape, chipboard letters and stamps.
Thanks for stopping by. If you have any questions about product I used, just leave a comment and I'll reply back in this post.

Coming soon:
More fun Washi tape and a new Summer mini album kit for the shop, my Papertrey release projects for May, more Project Life weeks to blog, some vintage finds from recent junkin' trips & more.

Around here:
It's the last week of school for the girls. I can't believe it's here already. It's our busiest time of year but it will wind down and then Summer activities will start up in June. If I can get through this week of graduation activities, school events and track meets, I'll be a happy camper. I'm hoping to finish some projects and do a little more regular blogging this summer. Wish me luck!

Today:
I've been informed that no one has any clean underwear. So before I head off to orthodontist appointments it looks like I'll be doing a few loads of laundry. And then tonight I'll be giving my sarcastic tour of the laundry room so that the family gets reacquainted with the washer & dryer and how it works. Somewhat similar to the tour I give of the kitchen cupboard where all the cups are stored....when everyone drinks out of my glass. And the tour I give of the linen closet that stores all the toilet paper rolls...when I find no squares to spare on the toilet paper roll. Reminders are good. Have a great day everyone!

Happy MAM (Monday After Mother's) Day to you! The laundry thing is to let you know how much you're needed. My kids said, "Mom, if you died we'd have no clean clothes and would only eat waffles & makky cheese, cuz that's all Daddy knows how to make."
Guess I'd better start the laundry & get groceries today :)

Great pages! Thank you for keeping me on track. I have not fallen behind yet and all my stuff is in our crawl space because we have our house on the market. Monday is always scrap day and then I quick put it all away. We have been lucky no one has requested to see the house on a Monday. I also brought my album home for Mother's day weekend and my family loves it. Love the end of your post today. So true.

Michelle I love your pages! Can you tell me the kraft paper u are using? Mine seems so dark compared to yours, i LOVE the light and whimsy look of your pages!

Also, i'm sure you've already covered how you tackle your actual photo's for project life can you point me in the right direction? I would love to know your process, print at home? Specifically how you do your collages and smaller pics. Are they all backed on white cardstock, or printed along with white borders included :)
