Project Life Album :: My Son’s 30th Birthday :: December 2014

It’s so tempting to use Christmasy colors when I plan out his birthday. So even though this fabulous paper has deer on it, it is not Christmas. What a big birthday. For both of us!

I love these photos so much for the late 1980’s. We had fun shooting them in the country where my grandparents lived and where I was born. He was my #1 baby and all we had for 10 years. #spoiled

More of the photos from his birthday and the photo shoot.

I look pretty silly in this photo, watching my son on his birthday. To me it looks like I have a sappy face. I was just happy to be sharing his birthday with him one more year.

My son had a nice birthday. Gifts he liked, will use and was happy with. That’s always a win.

Project Life Album :: #17DaysOfThankful (it’s my version) :: November 2014

For this project I decided to use the perfect pieces from the Take Ten Kits November 2014 kit. I love the colors! And the images! They’re beautiful and perfect for what I was going to do.

This started with me misunderstanding, as usual, something I knew nothing about. I thought I understood it but clearly I did not.

There are TWO things: 30 Days of Thankful and December Daily. I thought there was only one thing. I thought it started on Thanksgiving, hence the Thankful, and went all the way through Christmas. There was the December, too, so I thought the Thankful, the December, oh, I had it all mixed up! So, without realizing it, I went on with my planning. I counted and I came up with 40 Days. 40 Days of…Crazy, I decided.

So suddenly it was November 1st and everyone was talking about 30 Days of Thankful and I decided to jump right in- even though I was starting again on Thanksgiving, I wanted to do this along with everyone else. Until the 17th. So, I used the Collect app for this experiment. And I loved it! I love the clean look of it, which is typically the opposite of what I normally do. I love color.

Anyway, I decided to jump in on November 1st. And to go only through November 17th. So it would be 17 Days of Thankful. Why? because the 18th is my birthday and that would be a whole separate page. I would then take a break until Thanksgiving and start my 40 Days of Crazy.

Welcome to my 17 Days of Thankful! (just pretend it’s a thing)

 

This is the left side of my 2 page layout.

Here is the card for November 1st from the Collect app I have on my iPhone. It keeps an image for each day and you can make a note on it. The app collects it in calendar form, which I love!

This is an adorable metal coffee cup paper clip thingy! It was in the Take Ten Kits for November 2014. Perfect for my Day 1.

The Grateful and the Take Note card are both from the Take Ten Kits November 2014 kit. Beautiful colors and images!

My calico Chloe. I had to keep shooing her away cause she really wanted to just lie on top of my Project Life album! I don’t even want to think about the cat hair sticking to everything, the pockets, the static, ugh!! Shoo! Chloe! Get away! She was terribly frightened- can’t you tell?

The Good Stuff card is also from the Take Ten Kits November 2014 kit. Fabulous for my 17 Days of Thankful! Because the everyday stuff we are thankful for really is the Good Stuff.

This is the right side of my 2 page layout.

The Deer card and the Thankful card are also from the Take Ten Kits November 2014 kit.

Thankful. I really am.

Here is both pages of the 2 page layout for my #17DaysOfThankful. I had a great time with this project and I need a break until my #40DaysofCrazy.

Project Life :: Fall Birthdays :: September 2014

We have a few birthdays in September. Almost all of the photos were taken at night so the photos are a little on the dark side.

This will go into my Project Life album, a double side September 2014 layout, on the left.

And the other side of the September 2014 layout…

This will go on the right side of my 12×12 September 2014 layout.

LOVE this card from Take Ten Kits!! http://www.thestudio29design.com

Here are the side facing each other. The layout was very simple, I just added the birthday card and the letterpress card. And the gold stars I cut out myself!

The 5 of Us: Someone said we looked like a hipster family. (embarrassing)

A cousin wanted to take a photo of us because we all had our glasses on, which we didn’t realize. Kind of embarrassing to be called a hipster family at a party. It’s a great photo, though.

And the second photo is one of the 5 of us at my youngest’s birthday party. We don’t have all the same schedule so we have to make a date in advance to get together as a family. And the rule is now that we must take a family selfie. I love them.

These two 12×12 pages will face each other in my 12×12 album.
