Welcome to Project Life 2012 | Week Ten.
I have to tell you that I really enjoyed working on this particular week yesterday. There was something about going back over it yesterday, seeing the notes I’d jotted down and the photos I’d taken in the midst of a tough week that really helped me take a deep breath of perspective.
It was also a gentle reminder that time and life are marching forward and that today is what I choose to make of it.
Here’s a look at my Week Ten spread:
The left side:
I used one of the Clementine folded cards opened up for longer journaling about an adventure that Chris and Simon took to the police station.
This is the back of the die-cut vellum quote from last week.
Used word art from my Moving Forward digital brushes and went big right on top of a photo of myself. Some of the word art included in that set is now available as a new clear stamp set called Saying Hello: Scrapbook.com | Two Peas.
Used my Silhouette to cut some more vellum (loving that) using my Hello Life Boxes Vol. 3. I also had to sneak that cloud vellum paper in again and a piece from that My Mind’s Eye Be Amazing chipboard set.
“Be true to yourself” is a sticker from Cosmo Cricket called Tiny Text. I don’t think it’s available anymore. I love how the die-cut “love” box frames Simon either way the insert lays.
Top right photo with Simon and Katie includes a digital brush from my This One set. The gratitude card can be found in the Life Sentiment Journal Cards Vol.2 set and was printed on photo paper. Letter stickers include an awesome orange set from Bella Blvd (Simply Simona Orange) and two from American Crafts (Amy Tangerine Goodness and Hollyday Silver Elf).
Next to the gratitude card I included a print out of a text conversation from my iphone with Chris about Simon’s reading this past weekend.
In our kitchen I cleaned out two shallow drawers and organized the contents dedicating one for Simon’s stuff and one for Anna’s stuff. This is a favorite place to sit (the laptop can usually be found in this location) and I love having a very specific spot to corral some of their little treasures that tend to live in the kitchen area.
“Sunday” is from my Today Textured Word Art was added on top of my photo in Photoshop. I put together a simple video on how to copy, cut and paste a word art file to add text in the middle just like I did above:
Hope you guys are having a great week.
