Project Life: June 23-29

I changed it up a bit this week. Still using my beloved Honey Edition, I chose to print all pictures in black and white to make a bit of a statement. Now my printer is a bit off...cause they do look a bit green! Lol! I tried adjusting, but so not worth the aggravation. I figure in 20 years it won't make a darn bit of difference. Don't stress over the little things. I did take Jessica Sprague's class on a Photoshop tricks. Each Friday for the entire summer she has a video, pdf & digi goodies. I really like her style of teaching. Everything I know in PSE, I learned from her. Let me tell you I was clueless!!! It takes anywhere from 5-10 minutes and voila, I've learned another trick. I used week's 1 lesson, "Extracting Patterns". Didn't know when I'd ever use this, but guess what? I used it this week...go me! I extracted the little red camera, (that I absolutely love!) and used it on my Sunday picture & Thursday's journal card...oh yeah, I'm on fire! Ha, well I find I have to use what I just learned several times or "poof" it's gone from my memory. But like I said, she has the directions written out, clearly! I print them all out and keep them in a binder very close to my desk! I still turn to my original class I took with her for the basics....especially when my PSE resets itself : ( Here is a link to her class Baker's Dozen.
OK, back to Project Life. Awesome family week! My sister came to visit, lots of playing in the pool, Japanese take out with my son, it was all good. Except for Paulina getting an ear infection, it was a pretty darn good week! I used Cathy Z's new item at AC Digitals. I'm a sucker for her clean lines. It was just a few simple saying, that yes, I probably can recreate my self. But it is so nice just to pop it on the page. I used it for Wednesday's picture of my 2 girls in the pool. Here is the full spread:

A few close ups...

This is the end of my volume one for 2013. So I did a last page with some pictures I didn't use the month of June. Can you believe we are half way through the year??? Yikes!

I am linked up (as usual) with Jessica at The Mom Creative Blog!
