Project Life 2013.....Week 13 using My Mind's Eye

Hey all, TGIF!  Here's hoping that the Kansas weather calms down a bit.  Our blaring weather radio and my phobia of tornados is playing havoc on my sleeping.  We also had to cancel a big bonfire the girls were going to have because of the weather.

On to Project Life Week 13 though.  This was a fun week because I used mostly My Mind's Eye products for my spread.  I love those 12 x 12 pieces of patterned paper that you can cut into journaling cards.  Here's my 2 page spread.
This was Easter week so the pastel colors fit right in with the theme.  
I got this week's photo scrapbooked in record time due to the everything coordinating. 
Still loving the weekly dated insert.  I added a small Instagram + some ombre letters + date stamps.  You can see in the top left corner that I added some scribbled circles using the fun water soluble pencil in my Art Journaling Kit. I love the softness that the watered down graphite lends.
Here's a photo of Josey with her p-corn.  Always a slang name for everything, this time popcorn.  On the right I had an extra slot so I embellished a 3 x 4 card with a stitched on butterfly sticker then added some enamel dots.  Love that.
It worked out perfectly that the 5 & 7 on this insert was prominent.  I circled those letters then added some more of the graphite pencil + water to highlight the 57 degree temperature.  
My right page was mostly about Easter decor and the dinner we had with my folks.  I'm always looking for fun spots to add journaling and here I typed right onto the photo in the blank spot of a dinner plate.  Just run your photo through your typewriter. 
Here I used the Phonto app to add text to my photo of Swig Sugar Cookies.  This recipe was popular on Pinterest this particular week so I tried them out for Easter dessert. 
Another fun week in the books.  Well, it looks like I'm being talked into heading into town.  The girls want to show me the pool they want + they think they're starving with no groceries in the house.  

Be sure to check out yesterday's post as I've added some new items to the shop.  Have a great weekend everyone!!

Hi Michelle!

I'm a spanish girl from Spain and I read you everyday. I have recently discovered scrapbooking and you are my main inspiration. I love your creativity and the soft colours you choose, specially on project life. In fact I have started my own project life because of you, so I want to thank you for all the beauty and ideas you share. Thank you!
