Welcome to Katie’s Project Life® 2013 | Weeks 23 and 24 .
While I’ve been playing catch up, I have come to find that there were definitely weeks where I just didn’t take any photos. I played around with the idea of just doing one week per side, but I really like having the two page spread when I look back through my album.
I really love Liz Tamanaha’s “You are so very loved” card that was included in a Studio Calico Kit a few months ago. I used that pink and the green from Anna’s skirt to pick out my other embellishments for the week.
The “Summer Joy” card is from Ali’s Oh Summer I Love You So 3×4 Cards
To fill the other side of the spread I used Kal Barteski’s heart stamp from a Studio Calico Kit + The same pink Memento ink + Kelly Purkey’s black number stickers to create some very simple journal cards to document 8 things I loved that week. It was super quick and simple and I will definitely be doing it again for the weeks where I don’t have many photos.
This was such a fun and happy week for me. Simon and Anna had their last day of school for the year, Peter was getting ready to graduate from the University of Oregon and we had a bunch of family in town.
I love love love Jenni Bowlin’s gold rub ons. They go on so smoothly and they look so great!
I used Kelly Purkey’s Real Deal Label Stickers a few times on this spread. They are awesome when you want to add some short journaling to photos.
I included a photo of me and my dad from when I was a baby to celebrate Father’s day that was happening that week.
Peter’s mom and sister were in town and we all had a girls night and did some face masks.
We used Boscia’s Black Luminizing face mask, it looks funny but we all loved it. I continued to use it through the summer to get my skin ready for the wedding and I highly recommend it! One bottle has lasted me forever. Three cheers for finding a good beauty product!
Even though I still have a LOT of catching up to do, I am thankful for this project. I’m still learning about what works and what doesn’t for me, and the process is so fun. I’mh oping I can bust out a few months in the coming weeks so I can be all caught up and ready to tackle December Daily™.
