Project Life: February 16t -March 1st

Hello everyone! Here are my next 2 weeks of Project Life. I didn't post last week due to my back going out...not fun! I was out of work for a few days and couldn't do a thing : (

But let's dive into week 8: February 16-22. I used all core kits from Dear Lizzy. I mixed and matched as usual. The "hello" sticker is from Heidi Swapp's new line. The button is from Crate Paper's line "Love Notes". I also used a bunch of sequins that I ordered from Happie Scrappie. She has wonderful stuff in her shop and she is super talented. It does come from Singapore, so it took a few weeks...but well worth it! I even saved the beautiful stamps from the package.

We did get more over this winter...but I won't bore you with my complaining. At least it was pretty and I got to take a few cool pictures of the ice. I used Heidi Swapp letters, a rub on from Studio Calico & more sequins.

Later on in the week, prior to my back injury, I made my husband some muffins. Baking is the only type of cooking I actually enjoy. He does 90% of the cooking (love him)! I even included the recipe on a 3 x 4 journal card and tucked it behind the 4 x 6 card.  I also added a journal card of the video games my girls are currently hooked on. I thought that'd be cool for them to look back on.

I also included this week a little card from Starbucks with my favorite latte.

I finally got the KIWI EDITION!!!! Looked forever and finally found one in Philadelphia at Jo Ann's! My girlfriend Rupai was in the neighborhood and picked it up. She used a d40% coupon, PLUS an extra 15% coupon! Whoo hoo! Then we split the wound up costing $7! Bargain city people! I am so in love with this kit! I wasn't even going to get it, but I must have been on Pinterest and saw a PL layout and that was all it took. PS, I have converted my friend Rupali and she is now a Project Lifer too! Yay I now have a partner in crime : )

Below, I enlarged a picture to 6 x 8. My husband took the girls to Peace Valley Park to play snow football. I was still laid up in bed. That is why there are a lot of filler cards and not much journaling this week.

I did manage to have a drink with my husband. For Christmas my best friend got me a 3 month subscription to The Julibox. Its like a monthly club that has alcohol. It comes with the bottles and a bunch of recipes, super cute! I used a Crate Paper button and washi tape and a wooden house from Freckled Fawn.

Finally got back to work on Thursday. We went out to eat at a local pub. I love Easter because it is the return of orange peeps! My hubs surprised me with a package!

This weekend the girls journaled. Friday Natalya had a sleep over her best friends house, so she journaled her night. On Saturday, Bryan took Paulina to Pawsibilities, a no kill cat shelter. So she journaled the experience. I LOVE having them write their thoughts down. Even though they keep their own PL, this is truly a family project.

That is the past 2 weeks. We are getting ready for yet another snow storm on the east coast in the US. Hope you are keeping warm in your part of the world!
I will be linked up with Jessica over at The Mom Creative Blog. A TON of inspiration on her Tuesday share!


  1. Great pages! I love the ways you added text to your pages.

    1. Thank you Anita. I use PSE and would be lost without it!

  2. We have snow at our house too (in Arkansas). :) Love that you split a kit with your friend! I wish some of my "real life" friends would do PL! That would be fun. :) I'm visiting from TheMomCreative. :)

    1. Hi Jenny! I'm thinking of making a post about "sharing" kits. I have 12 physical core kits that I would love to do a swap with other women.

  3. Love how colorful your pages are. Congrats on getting that awesome deal on Kiwi. That's always a happy moment. :o)

    1. Thank you! I LOVE color and I am in love with the Kiwi. Now I am patiently awaiting the Strawberry kit to make an appearance in a Michaels or AC Moore!
