Scenes from summer and Project Life update

Yeah, it’s busy ’round here.

Summer school is over. Christopher finished a week long bike camp and is so much more confident on his bike. We have baseball and music camp and firework watching and movies to see. It’s good. But I’m exhausted. We also finally got Christopher back into OT (insurance sucks, long story), and we also have him in a social group. Lots of taxi driving. AND we are in the market for a new van. Yikes. But all in all, still good. And we’re not even halfway through!

So, Project Life. I have not given up. I’m still managing to work on it semi-regularly, and am really only three weeks behind. It’s just too much to keep up with on the blog. So I’ve decided to not post them weekly (obviously). If I have a particular week that I love I may throw it up here, but there’s no way I can get all of the weeks up. Just. Too. Crazybusy. I love looking at everyone else’s, though, and I will still be checking everyone out.

So, off I go, back to the van. Someone has to go somewhere this afternoon, I’m sure of it.

Project Life-Weeks 14 and 15

Whew! Finally got a chance to sit and work on the photos that have been sitting on my table. It’s been a little bit of torture, seeing those pictures all trimmed and ready to go, and not being able to sit and play. So get ready for a long one, I have two weeks of pages to share.

First, week 14

Not much to say about these, pretty straightforward, pages. I didn’t have a ton of time for fanciness, which is why this project is so awesome. As simple as they are, I still love them.

Week 15

This was a busy week, with Easter, and my daughter’s play was this week as well. So I did an insert focusing on her show.

So that’s it! It’s been crazy around here, so whole I’m still a few weeks behind, I’m glad I was able to get a couple done. I have two kids home sick this week, and the school talent show to direct on Thursday. When that’s over and everyone is back on their feet, maybe I can catch up. Or just take a nap.

I’m linking up with The Mom Creative again, so go on over and check out some more, more caught up layouts!

Due to technical difficulties….

I realize it’s been a while. I’ve had week 14 sitting on my table, nearly done, for two weeks now, and week 15 photos printed and trimmed. Sigh. Sometimes life gets in the way. Been busy with kid stuff, school stuff, medical issues (nothing serious, just annoying). My house is a disaster and I’m sick of looking at it.

I’m still taking photos and am not giving up. In the meantime, I’ll be enjoying all of everyone’s pages at The Mom Creative and One Happy Mama. There will be a whopper of a post coming soon…

Project Life-Week 13

Wowza! Thirteen weeks in and still going strong. This week I discovered that what I dislike the most about this project is trimming all of my photos. It is the least fun part of this whole deal. Another thing I thought, maybe I’m putting in too many photos! This week, again, I included an insert. It was Spring break, so I had some more to include. Here goes:

BOTH PAGES, WITH INSERT

So there it is! I do still enjoy this, very much. I love looking back at the completed weeks. I’ve linked up over at The Mom Creative and One Happy Mama. Come over and check out all of the fun pages! If you would like to share your pages, please link up in the comments!

Here’s to another great week!

Project Life-Week 12

Week 12! I can hardly believe it. I’m so glad I haven’t given up on this project. Every week when I slip my pages into my book, and see how much I’ve done so far, I feel happy. This week I added a Design G insert, because I took a bunch of pictures of my son’s trip to Build a Bear, and wanted to fit them all in.

BOTH PAGES, WITH INSERT

So there it is, I’m pretty happy with the way these came out. Next weeks pages will cover Spring break, and then comes Easter! Lots of fun photos ahead.

I’m linking up over at The Mom Creative and also at One Happy Mama. There’s loads of inspiration over there, so come and see! If you have pages to share, please link up in the comments. Have a great week!

Project Life-Week 11

Well, I missed last week. So I’m a week behind in sharing. But I figure I will either catch up with two weeks or I’ll spend the year being one week behind. Either way, life happens, and being a little behind the pack isn’t going to make me give up or love this project any less. So, here goes…

BOTH SIDES

It felt a little strange using the back of the Design F on the right side, but I did have alot of vertical photos on my phone to choose from. And while I’m not totally in love with this week’s layout, I know every week is not going to be perfect, and it’s more important for me that I keep documenting. I know that when I look back at it later, I won’t be whining about this week not being as pretty as the others.

I’m linking up over at The Mom Creative and at One Happy Mama. Come over and see all of the fun, inspirational pages. If you have pages to share, please link up in the comments so I can come see.

My kids are on Spring break this week, so who knows what’s gonna get done! Have a great week!

Project Life-Weeks 9 and 10

Well, it was bound to happen, I missed posting last week. My week 9 pages were partly done, but life stuff got in the way and I couldn’t get it done and posted for Tuesday. But my friend invited me to a crop night on Saturday, so I knew I could use that time to get weeks 9 AND 10 done. It was great, too. Sometimes at crop nights I struggle with what I want to do and end up getting very little accomplished. This time it was so much fun to dive right in. So here goes:

WEEK 9, BOTH PAGES

I don’t have a ton to say about these, except I’m still having a great time. I did use a Design F sheet in week 10, and loved it. It was so simple. I finally got myself Photoshop Elements, so I’m looking forward to including more digital elements, as soon as I can figure out how to use them.

The Mom Creative

I’m linking up again over at The Mom Creative and at One Happy Mama. So much inspiration over there. Go check it out! If you have pages to share, please link up in the comments.

It’s another busy week over here, hopefully that means lots of good stuff for Week 11!
