Project Life Week 19

Hi friends and family (and scrappers and crafters),

I was on a long vacation and then when I got back I have been dealing with a health issue called BLOOD PRESSURE.  I am in the process of figuring it out.  Meanwhile I want to start scrapping and blogging again.  I have a new You Tube Video that I recorded in KS.  I will put the link in a few days.  I always have such fun with my KS family and friends.  I really enjoy scrapping with others.  Honestly, I get more done on my own because I don’t see them often and I really enjoy chatting.

May celebrations.

May celebrations.

The first picture is of what my youngest gave me for Mother’s day.  It is a travel  cup (he picked it out and it has flowers printed on it).  Inside are a lot of different chocolates.  Then he put some flowers (fake) in the cup, too.  I used the flowers in a wreath that I made.  So awesome and best of all I know that he thought of me when he picked everything out.

The top small slot is about the pictures on the top row.  I also put a sticker that says May flowers and had a flower on it.  The second small slot is declaring week 19 with a clear disc and gold numbers 19 on it.  I also added a birthday sticker to the PL card.

The last picture on the top row is a collage that Amber made on Facebook of Ben and Matthew.  Both of their birthdays are on May 11th so she has them together on the day Matthew was born and through various stages.

On the bottom row is Ben in a Krispee Kreme hat and glasses, nose , and mustache disguise.  He is sitting at the table with his Krispee Kreme donut cake that he has every year because it is his favorite.

The 3rd small picture is of the donut cake and the spiderman cake that I made for Matthew.  (And a few presents).  The 4th small pictures is of Matthew with a mask on  that was from his card from us.

Finally, the last picture on the page is from Matthew getting his picture taken earlier in the day at Portrait Innovations.

Whew!  What a day they are having!

Hope to have more tomorrow!

God bless!

Project Life Week 17 Part II

Hi friends,

This is the 2nd part of week 17.  I love this page.  It is mostly of Matthew.  But the photo on the top row on the right is of my KS granddaughter, Lily.  Her parents had a “turtle day”.  My husband did this for the boys so it is a tradition that Jake chose to continue.  I put the picture on a PL card and cut a turtle out of a page of reptiles that I had.  I then wrote Family tradition at the top and Turtle Day at the bottom.

The first picture is of Matthew at Abby’s school.  The first small picture is a PL card with a sticker that says May.    The second small slot is of Matthew in front of the library.  After the library we went to the smoothie shop.  He was already eating almonds.  On the way out he found the perfect dandelion to blow.  I took a lot of pictures.  I have pictures of his dad doing the same thing.  I think that is why I thought the pictures were priceless.  In the bottom small slot is a PL card that I put a sticker on (that I cut in two).  It says, “Rough and Tough Yet Oh so Sweet”.  That is Matthew!  I added a sticker of a smoothie to the PL card.

The grandkids have fun!

The grandkids have fun!

That is it for the day!

God’s blessing on you and yours!

Matthew Loves to Swing

Another Matthew page before going back to PL.

Matthew's favorite thing to do is swing!

Matthew’s favorite thing to do is swing!

I had the photo that I bought at a scrapping store, of the swings, for a long time.  I didn’t know how I was going to use it until I found out Matthew’s love of swinging.  He and I go to parks a lot and that is always his first stop.  He never gets off until I quit pushing.  He loves to swing on his own, too, but his favorite thing is to be pushed.

I used a blue piece of cardstock and then attached the swing photo – leaving a slight gap between the photo and the edge.  I then figured out which photos I wanted to use and how I wanted to layer them.  I left another gap between the photos of Matthew and the photos of the swings.  I then attached them all and trimmed off the edges.  The last step was using border stickers between all of the photos to add definition.  I LOVE this page!

That is all for the day!

God bless!

Bubbles at the Library

Hi my creative friends,

Today I have a fun layout of Matthew at the library.  Once every few weeks or so, after reading and crafts, the library has a bubble machine put out a massive amount of bubbles.  Matthew loves it!  One of the pictures that I took of him is my absolute favorite!

It's bubble time!

It’s bubble time!

I used five different pictures and it was from a couple of different days at the library.  I had a small piece of bubble paper that I used for a mat on the top right picture.  The bottom left picture I matted on velum.  The other pictures I didn’t mat.  I did layer two of them.  After adhering the pictures I got out my scrapbooking sewing stuff and found all of my sewing stencils that looked like circles and ovals.  I punched holes of different circles using a needle and putting a pad behind the paper.  I then sewed the circles using a metallic blue thread.  I used washi tape to tape the ends onto the back of the page.  It has been awhile since I have sewn on my scrapbooking pages.  I really enjoyed it.

The other thing I did that I haven’t used in a long time is used my label maker to journal on the page.  I really love this page.  My favorite picture is the bottom left one.  It shows his joy.

God bless!

Project Life Week 17

Hola!

Another week of life and another week recorded in Project Life.  This week’s is awesome because it is actually a one page layout.  My favorite!

A fun week at the Turner household.

The top left picture is my KS granddaughter with her first tooth lost.  Her parents didn’t know that it was loose yet.  Surprise!  The top right photo is a picture of Abigail before her first soccer game of the season.  I added a soccer ball brad to the photo.  The bottom right picture is of Brad playing with the grandkids.  I put it on a piece of decorative paper and added a sticker that says “grandpa”.  The bottom right picture is of Brad on a hike.  I added a sticker of footsteps and wrote hiking on it.  I also added the clear disc that has the gold number 17 on it to the picture and wrote the word “week” around the perimeter of the picture.  The small slots have a picture of Abby playing soccer and of the kids swimming.

That’s it for week 17.  Can you believe it?

God bless!

All Boy :)

Hi friends,

I have a Matthew page.  I have had these two pictures that are black and white.  My youngest son was in a photography class last year and he took and developed these pictures of Matthew.

My cutie grand boy.

My cutie grand boy.

I used one of the pages that came with the photo album.  The lion’s mane was an orangish red.  Matthew’s favorite color is orange so I decided to mat the photos with orange cardstock.    I left them both square cornered and then I attached them to the background page.  The bottom pictures corner was barely touching Matthew’s face in the top pictures so I ended up rounding that corner of the mat.  It made a big difference.  I had a cute piece of cardstock that has a saying about boys.  I matted that on orange cardstock to and put that on the page.  There was a corner of the mats that were on the background page that was left exposed.  (I covered the rest of them up with the pictures and with the saying).  I used that exposed mat corner as a journaling box.  I had a lion sticker (that came with the scapbook) and was just like the lion on the bottom of the page but smaller.  I added it to the top of the layout.   It turned out super cute.

Thanks for taking a peek!

God bless!

Project Life Week 16 (part IV)

Hello friends,

My friends are here and I couldn’t feel more blessed!  Hope you are all having a great week!

Final page of week 16.

Final page of week 16.

The first two rows are of my KS grandkids having a good time together drawing on the sliding glass door.  The last small slot is a PL journaling card that I wrote about all of the pictures on.  I did add a few stickers to make it fun.  The bottom row is Matthew at the library.  The first picture on that row is one of my favorites.

Week 16 is finished!  So excited to be getting this slowly caught up.  I am going to be gone for a few weeks soon.  I want to start getting on track before I leave!

God bless!

Project Life Week 16 (part III)

Howdy friends,

It is really the dog days of summer here.  I keep my hair pulled up off my face and neck.  I don’t think it looks very nice but I can’t stand how hot I am with it down.

The last bit of prom pictures.

The last bit of prom pictures.

The first pic is Tim and Camila with Brad and I.  The next one is a close up of them that I really adore.  The first small slot is of the place where prom was held.  The next two small slot is them in front of the hotel before they went in.  The last small slot is in the hotel checking into prom.  The bottom left slot is a card with prom stickers all over.  The final slot is a PL  card that I wrote about the day on and added the tiara sticker.  Prom is over now but there is still a little more for week 16.  I will show you tomorrow.

God bless!

Project Life Week 16 (part II)

Hola,

Another day in the life of the nutty Turner family.  More prom pictures today.  They have to be good – the couple is as beautiful one!

More prom pictures - and they are so cute!

More prom pictures – and they are so cute!

These are all pictures of Tim and Camila.  First he is putting the corsage on her wrist.  Then they are on the deck of her parent’s house.  Finally they are down their street in a nice setting.  I don’t know if you can tell but Tim had a pinkish right eye.  It was bothering him all day.  The night before he was skateboarding with his friends and got something in it.  We worked all day trying to get the pink out.  It did help but not completely.  It was fine the next day.

The only thing besides pictures was one PL card that I wrote in cursive Tim -n- Camila and added cute prom stickers.  Love this page.

More tomorrow.

God bless!

Project Life Week 16

Hi friends,

I have a fun week ahead.  My friends are coming to visit and then on Friday we are leaving for DC.  Christian March on the Mall of Washington.  SO AWESOME!

More exciting news – I am onto week 16 of PL.  It is a few pages long but not near as long as the Disney week.

First page of week 16 of Project Life.

First page of week 16 of Project Life.

The first picture is the back of my head.  I had it done before we left for Greensboro to take Tim to prom.  Had to wash that gray out.  I replaced it with a lot of colors – red, blonde and PURPLE.  I really love it and think it is fun.  I Put it on a PL journaling card and journaled below the picture.  The top right picture is Ben and Abby eating out.  They are really having a good time.

The first small slot is a PL card with stars on it.  I added a gold clear disc with the number 16 on it and wrote the word week in gold.  I added a few more gold stars.  The second small slot is a PL card that I wrote about what was going on in some of the pictures.

The bottom left picture is my poor nephew Jep who broke his leg.  He looks so miserable.  He is such a sweet boy!  The bottom right picture is the start of the prom pictures.  Tim is putting the wrist corsage on Camila.  They look SO nice!

The third small slot is a PL card that says “ADORBS”.  It is so cute and pointing right at the prom couple.  The last small slot is a plain PL card that I added stickers to.

More prom on the next page(s).

God bless!
