Project Life 2013.....Week 23 using August Gossamer Blue Kits

Back today to share Week 23 of my Project Life.  This week was just full of photos so it's a busy layout, including a few inserts.  
For my supplies, I lots of Gossamer Blue's August Life Pages kit items + some items from the regular GB kits.  
If you ordered any kits from Gossamer Blue this month, you'll definitely notice the travel theme.  We were not traveling at the time I made this layout but the travel items were still put to good use.  We were on the go constantly with the girls' Summer ball activities so I used the travel items to show our "on the go" activities. 
I had photos filling almost every spot this week so I used lots of embellishments, tags and journaling cards.
My main, dated insert which sets the tone for the week.  I used the fun car themed 4 x 6 cards that our great GB designers created.  Plus the "we are here" stamp is also from Gossamer Blue.  The Small Manila Parcel tag worked perfectly for that stamp.
Love how this mouse embellishment fit perfectly with sleeping Charlie.
Fun die cuts, tags and a paper clip from the Life Pages kit.
Some of the  3 x 4 inserts....
I liked this little discovery.  I typed on my Notebook Paper Labels then stuck them on my journaling cards.  I used a sticker from the October Afternoon border sheet to cover up the bottom.  Love that look. Note:  September's Gossamer Blue Life Pages kit will have something very special to use with my Notebook Paper Labels and my Grid Paper Labels.  You might want to stock up on a few. :)
More labels and the exclusive Gossamber Blue stamp set designed by Elle's Studio. 
Stickers for a small title combined with typewriter journaling + I love this journaling card paired with my vintage Airstream camper find.
Here I have an 8.5 x 11 insert which holds the girls' basketball and volleyball schedules for Summer League.
I typed a note about how strenuous this schedule was.  We weren't very happy that nearly 2 months of Summer was taken up with ball this year.
The back side of the insert holds a scrapbook page I did which uses a note from our lender that a vehicle we own was paid off.  I use a journaling card (not shown) to note all of the items we paid off this year.  Kind of an odd addition to our scrapbooks but a great way to show some hard work and progress.  I thought it fit into the travel themed paper by October Afternoon.  Love that piece of Travel Girl patterned paper.
That's it for this week.  Thanks for stopping by. 

New website......Gossamer Blue is working hard behind the scenes to create a brand new website.  It will have forums, galleries and all the links to the shop and main blog.  I've seen some peeks and I think it will be great when up and running.  Stay tuned.....

Sneak Peeks....the 15th is right around the corner and I have some fun peeks to share of what's coming to Gossamer Blue for September.  Lori hit this one right on the money so be prepared to love ALL the kits.  The Life Pages kit is fantastic and loaded to the brim with fun embellishments and papers.

I agree with all above. Always look forward to your posts, especially PL pages. Still can't wait to hear about your organization and that handy notebook I see in your new posts with the PL planner on it! Looks like it's working well for you. =o) Thanks for sharing and always giving us inspiration to keep going!

Good morning Mish. I just wanted to tell you that I just had tea and toast with you on my porch. Hubby is out working already and the girls are still sleeping. I grabbed the iPad a nd a nice cup of tea and sat on the porch soaking in the beautiful morning, the birds chirping, the cat milling around, and all of your scrumptious inspiration! THE perfect start to a Sunday! Thank you so much for all of the time and effort you put into your blog. It is the perfect place for me to get away when I can steal some relaxing time. Think I'll go work on cleaning my stampming area now ;)
