Chloe decided she was thirsty before dinner and helped herself to water. On the table.

Project Life Album :: Thanksgiving 2014

This is my layout for Thanksgiving!

Each of us cooks for dinner. It didn’t start out this way but as time goes on and the kids get older, they take on helping make the dinner. The one time all year that all of us cook.

My husband and son make Apple Pies, my other son make fancy Pigs in a Blanket with pesto and gouda, my daughter makes my mother’s Sweet Potato Rolls, and I make the turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, cranberry and orange sauce, and peas with basil. It is a delicious dinner.

This is the left side of my 2 page layout.

This wood piece is from the Take Ten Kits November 2014 add-ons!

I love it!!

This is the right side of my 2 page layout.

Typing out our menu made it look fancy. 🙂

Typing out our Thanksgiving menu made it look fancy. 🙂

And here are the 2 pages side by side, the way they sit in my 2014 album. I like the way all of the browns make it look very November and very Thanksgiving.

This was a very simple layout that didn’t take much time at all!

Project Life :: A Week in the Life :: September 2014

This was my first A Week in the Life layout! It was fun choosing a ‘theme’ and I decided that I wanted to try the ‘sherbet colors’ look that using the Rhonna Designs app for iPhones gives. My life isn’t perfect and I’m not into making it look like it’s perfect so I knew this would be interesting. But my life is also a little slow since my kids are just about grown so it was going to be, as all of my Project Life layouts are, All About Me.

My entire color inspiration came from the A Week in the Life card! I just loved it and I didn’t even know the card was in a set I had.

Sherbet-y colors! Yummy.

The first part of my A Life in the Week:

Sunday: The first day of my week. It was about cleaning up party messes. And my cat Chloe, I tried to make it look like it was all her fault, but it wasn’t.

Sunday: My husband congratulates me with a balloon from his birthday. Apparently, I rock because I get to renew my driver’s license through the mail.

Monday: I ate ice cream that I’m not supposed to and I think that’s photo worthy.

Tuesday: First day of Autumn was spent doing lots of chores instead of my list because I was without a car (smog). Ugh.

(I still haven’t finished everything on this list, 2 weeks later)

Tuesday: My son’s artwork was chosen to be used for this Touming Magazine 7″ vinyl. Very exciting!!

And the second half of my A Week in the Life:

Wednesday: I celebrated the First Day of Autumn today since I got my car back. I pulled this shirt out of my ‘get rid of’ bag and decided to wear it and I tackled my huge list. P.S. At the end of the day I remembered why this shirt was in the get rid of bag: it sucks. The collar is limp and it’s ill-fitting. It goes back in!

Classic me motto: Do it anyway. And, yes, I Instagrammed it. My husband and I made these paper feathers. I cut and painted them, and my husband sewed them. I think they came out pretty cool.

Thursday: I went to our pharmacy, cleaned up and decorated for Fall while my husband worked.

Friday: I packed up more of my Creative Memories products that I sold online. At this point, I just want to get rid of what I won’t use! Off to the post office I went. Saturday: I did some things around the house and then went to mass. I heard this reading today and it meant a lot to me on this afternoon. Now if I could just convince this for others…

Saturday: After mass, I went home, helped my son get ready for the dance and I drove him out there. And then in a few hours, I drove back out, picked him up and took him to In and Out for after-dance food. And I sold more of my items so it was a win-win day, week…all of it. My life may be slow and boring but it’s MY slow and boring. And I won’t bother you with another ‘Week in My Life’ again for awhile. You’re welcome!

It was fun, colorful, new, and I had a great time documenting every little bit. Yes, it’s only two pages- I told you my life was slow! 🙂

Take Ten Kits :: Project Life :: Shopping :: August 2014

 I had the perfect shopping cards both large and small from Take Ten Kits for my shopping layout!

Even though we didn’t get his school clothes from Target, we are constantly going there for various items- it’s basically across the street from where we live.

 

My cat Chloe is looking at my Project Life album thinking about the scrapbooking stuff she needs.

My mother. Oh, how she loved shopping. Her favorite place was Loehmann’s by far. She passed away last year and this was the perfect place to keep the card that she passed down to me, and then my daughter. My daughter’s $250 prom dress was only $37 after she used the card and coupon. My mother and my daughter were very pleased about that!

My friend and I went out to an antique show on their opening day and we were very excited. It was pretty fun and then we went and had lunch afterwards. And on the tag, I wrote about the whole month of August, not just about the photos.

 This layout wasn’t too fussy and didn’t have a lot of embellishments but the graphics were so great it didn’t need any!

Take Ten Kits: only $10 a month without commitment! Opt out any month.
