Project Life: July 28th-August 17

I am playing catch up here! The past three weeks have been super busy. That is why I have not had a minute to blog. But I just got back from vacation and I feel like I have a little energy. So here goes:
The week of July 28th through August 3rd, I used the Blush Edition. Since August is the busiest month around our house, I didn't embellish or decorate too much. And if you notice there are a few day that do not even have journaling. But the pictures are printed and the stories WILL be told : ) I did find time for some sketching that week. I was really trying to practice my eyes. I used my olloclip for a few close ups. that really helped with the iris. Here are a few pictures.

 I do love using my Sn@p letters for the title card. For $3.99 you get 7 sheets of letters. Plus I use a 40% or 50% coupon at Michaels!

The week of August 4th through the 10th I used the Rain Edition. This is the first time I am using this edition. I thought I would use it for spring. For some reason the green, blue, purple color palette reminds me of springtime. But I was surprised to find that the palette works for any time of year. I really love the change! It is not my normal colors I would choose. But the cool tones suited the week and I love the overall look of the layout!

Once again, nothing fancy. This is why I LOVE Project Life. I get those memories in, even on those weeks where I don't have time for the creative "stuff". I did use a button from A Flair for Buttons. I love her buttons on Etsy! So many to choose from!

 This was ay favorite week of the year so far!! We took a week long vacation to Cape May and stayed at a house that was absolutely gorgeous!!! I used (to my surprise) The 5th & Frolic Edition. This is an exclusive from Michaels. I had NO intention on getting this at all! But once I saw it....whew, that was all she wrote! I love the soft colors...once again, sooooo not me! I love vivid, bright, rainbow colors! But this suited my beach pages perfectly. See, this is why I have over 10 editions! It all depends on the pictures and the mood for the week : ) FYI, I can justify ANY PL purchase, lol! Anywho, here is a look at last week. I journaled very lightly, only because I am making an intense album of the week with almost 200 pictures. But I did want to document the week for Project Life. I am still debating on the format for the album. Once the pictures arrive from Shutterfly I will decide.

My favorite picture of my husband with the girls!

We searched for shells and other treasures. We boogie boarded, got stung by jelly fish, visited with lots of family. We ate funnel cake, cheese fries & ice cream! We watched sunsets that tok our breath away! We made memories that will last a lifetime!
