Project Life: May 26 - June 1

This week went by so fast! We were all busy with projects and activities. I used the Blush Edition again this week. I did add the date using SN@P Simple Story Letters. They came in a pack of 8 different colors. I got them from Michael's using a coupon...I think they were about $2! I am going back for more! I'm actually getting use to my own handwriting. It helps because I am using Becky's Project Life Pens. I didn't think they'd be any different then any other pen/marker, but they seriously are! Smooth is all I can say. And I love, love, love the fact that they are housed in that nifty durable plastic container...it's the little things : )

I also love the different points on them. They range from 03-08. And they include blue, red & brown! Plus 2 Slick Writers for writing on slick surfaces (duh). Got these from HSN, bargain city!
For the first half of the week, I continued with the Blush Edition. I did add some Doodlebug letters on the Monday card & the Tuesday 4 x 6 picture. I find this adds a little pop to the story & a little jazz to a photo, especially the Tuesday  4 x 6. On Sunday I used my favorite templates EVER! I use these at least once a week when I have an abundance of photo's for a certain day. I got these from The Lily Pad. They rock and are simple to use in PSE.
I used the app Cycloramic for the first time ever...crazy! It actually makes your phone do a 360! It turns it by you placing it on vibrate! Insane, and so fun to use. We apparently had it on the wrong setting and it took a crazy picture of my friend & I....too funny! But if you have an iPhone 5, it is worth checking out.

These are the SN@P letters. Super affordable and come in great colors.

These are the doodlebug letters I used. They are so whimsical and fit the Blush Edition perfectly!
 I went to Google images and looked up the app, and then printed out the logo for it!

 


These are the Lily Pad templates...LOVE! For $4 you get 20 different templates with the white border.







The second half of the week was a whirlwind! The girls had their schools field day, which they call Maroon & Gold day...so much fun! And my best friends daughter graduated from high school...our old high school! Our Lady of Mercy Academy in New Jersey, I am sorry I had to miss the ceremony. But I was able to make it to the party on Saturday. I decided to end volume 1 of Project Life on June 1st. The next binder will start with Sunday, June 2 until the end of the year, December 31st. Since I had the back page of Design A left blank, I added some pictures of Maroon & Gold Day.




And the last page for this binder, Volume ONE of 2013! I'm not sure if you realize this...but we are half way through the year!


I will be linked up (as I am every week) with Jessica at  The Mom Creative Blog!

  2. your pages are lovely! i really like how you color coordinated them and i like that you used the collages to include extra photos in your layout. i think i need to start doing that. sometimes it is just difficult to get all the photos that you want to use into your spread! :)

    1. Thank you Brooke! The photo collages have saved my PL binder from getting too bulky.

  3. Those pens look like they write really beautifully, or maybe that's just your handwriting :o)
    Your pages look great. I think the final page is perfect....I cannot believe we are half way through 2013 already!
