Project 52 ~ Week #40

Another great week and another week of band, band, and more band!  This has been our life for the past 7 years and it's the last season with Concord Marching Band.  Next fall will look very different, that's for sure! 

For this page, I used 2 cards from the Project 52 ~ Fresh Edition.  The cards I used to highlight our band activities are super simple, but I felt like they summed up the week very well. 



Have a great day!

Project 52 ~ Week #39

Happy Monday Friends!  

Once again I have a Project 52 page to share with you.  This time it's for Week #39 and I kept the cards pretty simple with lots of white space which really makes the photos pop.  I haven't taken tons of photos the last few weeks, but I have spent some down time watching lots of new TV shows.  So I decided that since that week in September was full of season premiers, I would document what I've been watching.  

Another spot on my page features a super cute photo of my daughter.  I haven't seen her since Labor Day weekend, so I told her I missed her face and that she should send me a photo.  I 💖 it!

I don't normally do this, but I used a combination of kits on this page ~ Currently & The Poet Society Card Collection.  



Have a Wonderful Day!

Project 52 ~ Week #38

Today I'm sharing my Project 52 page for Week #38.  It was a hot and steamy week with lots of band activity and not one but TWO college acceptance letters for my son ~ Western Michigan University & Indiana Wesleyan University.  So that was pretty exciting!

The kit I used for this page is the Bridgeport Childhood Mini Kit in the Project Life App.



Have a Wonderful Day!

Project 52 ~ Week #37

Each week has been a new adventure lately.  For week #37, it was all about hosting our band invitational & that made for a week filled with lots of prep and planning.  And then when it's over, you think you're gonna have lots and lots of time... NOPE!  Still behind and trying to play catch up.

My page Project 52 page for Week #37, I used the Project 52 Fresh Edition for my cards.



Have a Happy Day!

Project 52 ~ Week #36

The weeks are just flying by and I am itching to get back into my craft studio to create some pages with all the physical products I have stacking up.  However, with marching band season in full force, I am thankful for the Project Life App so that I can keep up with the weekly events going on.

I created this page with the Capture Life kit in the PL App.  There were lots of fun photo opportunities this week & I love how this page turned out.



Have a fantastic day!

Project 52 ~ Week 35

Hi Friends!   My Project 52 page for week #35 features the September Skies kit in the Project Life App.  As usual, we had lots of Marching Band stuff... even some retro uniforms for the Drum Majors.  I also moved my daughter back to college for her final year.



Have a great day!

Project 52 ~ Week #34

Hello Friends!  This page has been done for over a week & I thought I posted it already.  Then I looked and realized it was just sitting here ready to be typed up ~ oops!  My routine has been a bit off this week because my sweet pup had to have surgery last week for a torn ACL.  This is her second one in 16 months... poor baby!  This injury and surgery requires a lot of special care and months of rehab.  The good news is, she is doing very well... so I've very thankful for that!

The top two card on this page are from the Jade Kit and the "Not the Best Day" card is from the Project 52 Fresh Edition, both from the Project Life App.

Thanks for hanging in there with me on my blog.  I'm trying to carve out more time to work on my albums, but it's been hard.  However, on the flipside, I'm that totally involved parent for my son's senior year and having my daughter home for the summer.  So... no regrets there!

Project 52 ~ Week #33

Hi There Friends!  Today I have my next page from my Project 52 Album for Week #33.  This page is a little less band heavy and a little more... well... miscellaneous.  Haha!  Last week was the start of the school year for my son & his it's his senior year!  ACK!  When did that happen!

I used the Project Life App for the page with the Personal Yearbook Mini Kit and the Hello Lovely Edition.  I don't usually mix kits, but I couldn't find a card for the lower left photo that I liked.  I also used a few photo overlays from the Project 52 Edition Photo Overlays kit.



Have a Wonderful Week!

Project Life ~ The Solar Eclipse

Happy Day After the Eclipse!

Yesterday we viewed the solar eclipse with our favorite marching band.  It was so much fun watching the kids reaction to the event.  {Yes, they all had the specially approved glasses}.  I made my page using the Project Life App and a free Solar Eclipse download from Elle's Studio.



Have a Great Day!

One Little Word ~ August Prompt

Hello Peeps!  Last week I was able to get some time to catch up on my One Little Word prompts & it felt great to get back into my studio.  Fingers crossed that I can get in there again this week to create some layouts!

This month Ali Edwards challenged us to print just 3 photos ~ one about where we are right now, one about what we are celebrating, and one about what we are struggling with.   At the moment, this chapter is all about band; I'm celebrating a great relationship with my son; and I'm struggling to get into my studio.  The other big struggle is staying in the moment so I can enjoy each little thing during Matt's senior year. 



In addition to those 3 photos, I found several things on Pinterest meant to inspire me with my struggles this month. I printed those as well as my prompt card for this month, the August Actions card, and the August Reflections card.


I'm pretty happy with my pages for the August Prompt & excited that I carved out time to finish work on them!


Happy Eclipse Day!

One Little Word ~ July 2017

I know you didn't expect to see me again this week ~ SURPRISE!  This morning I finished my July Prompt for the Ali Edwards One Little Word workshop and I wanted to share my pages.

The prompt for July was to express your personal manifesto by creating a mixed media piece of encouraging reminders.  I started out as I usually do, with a printed graphics that I found on Pinterest.



Next I added my Action card for the month and my mixed media piece.  Since I didn't have any stencils and paint, I used an embossing folder and white ink.  Then I added my messages with alphabet stamps.


For the next page, I added my Reflections card and more positive messages form Pinterest graphics and another stamped card.


I love the prompt this month, but I'll be honest that the cards I made didn't really come out like I would have hoped.  However, they are done & I'm just going to be OK with that because it's the message that really matters.

Have a great weekend!

Project 52 ~ Week #32

This summer has been a whirlwind of activities for our entire family.  Matt had his final full week of summer and along with several band practices, managed to fit in a visit to Western Michigan for a trombone lesson and some flight lessons.

For this page in my Project 52 album, I used the Project Life kit called Honey.  It is in the App & I love the cute cameras on these cards.  I thought they were perfect to go along with the pictures from the formal photo night for band.


I'm hoping to get into my craft studio this week and create.  It's been months since I've had time to do anything other than my Project 52 album.  Wish me luck!!

Project 52 ~ Week #31

Hello Friends!

My page for last week centers around the band's prep and the Indiana State Fair track show last Saturday.  Each summer our band performs a goofy summer show, either at Cedar Point or the State Fair.  This year they dressed as carrots with the color guard as rabbits and performed the song 24 "Carrot" Magic.

The cards for this page were from the Awesome Edition card kit.  I love how the colors on the cards coordinate with the photos this week! 



Have a Wonderful Day!

Project 52 ~ Week #30

Hey There Friends!  We are still knee deep in Summer Band, but I did manage to take a few picture of other fun things going on ... like 4H projects, the 4H parade, a fun concert at the fair and a shopping day with my daughter.  We live in Elkhart County (Indiana) and have the second largest county fair in the country (after San Diego). In fact, our county fair is larger than most of the state fairs in the country.

I used the new Sandlot Card Collection in the App and love the bright colors.  I kind of wish there were more cards in this collection because they are so fun.  



Have a Fabulous Weekend!
