Project Life Week 28...Summer in full swing + documenting the loss of a loved one

Hey there, Happy Weekend!  It's hot, the pool is cool & we're going to enjoy this long last weekend of Summer as much as we can.  

Today I have Week 28 to share of my Project Life.  We had our annual swim party and bonfire with lots of kids.  I didn't take too many other photos for the week so the party photos were good fillers.  
I used lots of the Simple Stories product from some previous Gossamer Blue kits.  Love those warm, Summery colors.
Lots of 4 x 6 photos on this side so I used 3 x 4 filler cards to add some color.
Loved this main, dated insert.  That little Simple Stories postcard was a favorite.
Here I posted a photo that I took last year of my Uncle Bob.  He passed away during this week of my Project Life.  I wanted to post a good photo of him before he got too ill.  Loved this one of him and my aunt with the girls.
This quote 3 x 4 card made it's way onto a 4 x 6 insert.  It was perfect for Jordan's "swiggle" line.
Here we have a photo Eric took while in Denver on business + the weather report.  Hot!
A fun filler card from Simple Stories + a fun photo of Charlie. He'll do anything for a snack.
Party photos of the kids....
More party photos......the girls will love all these photos of them and their friends when they're older.
I have an insert this week that I used to hold the papers for Uncle Bob's funeral.  It was such a lovely service for such a kind hearted man.  I wanted to tell some stories of Bob so I used a piece of vellum to add some typewriter journaling.

It was a sad time for us to lose Uncle Bob.  We will miss him so much......and this is why I scrapbook.  To remember the moments....document our lives....share our stories....take the photos.  Love this hobby so much.
