Project Life Week 43 (Part IV)


This is going to be a day of fun for us.  It is my daughter-in-law’s birthday.  After she gets off work we are going to a movie.  Later in the evening we are eating at Kobe’s.  I think there will be a few pictures taken.  🙂

A fun time with fun people.

The first slot has two pictures (divided by a border sticker) of Matthew riding the big tricycle at the pumpkin patch.  The first small slot has a picture of Absey Doodle on a trike.

The second picture on the top row has Matthew in a Spiderman costume that is MUCH to small.  He loved it thought.  I put a vellum saying on top of the picture (and I added a spiderweb sticker in the corner).

A close up of Matthew’s pic.

I love the saying, “Between the innocence of babyhood and the dignity of manhood, we find a delightful creature of a boy”.  So sweet!  I think it matches the picture perfectly.

In the second small slot and on down into the bottom left slot is Abby with her trophy from soccer.  I mounted the bottom part on a pink PL card.  I found a vellum quote that says,”Pretty in Pink” and put it on the card.  It is perfect because her soccer uniform is pink.  I added pink bows to the top of the vellum paper and I put a sparkly soccer ball to the side of the  vellum paper.

The third small picture is of Abby putting her coaches hat on his head.  The story behind it was a girl was being silly and knocked the coaches hat off.  Abigail didn’t find the humor in it and picked it up and placed it back on.  She adored that coach.  He was a great one.

The last small slot is a PL journaling card.  I wrote about all of the pictures.

Finally, the last slot is of my niece on the dance team at her college.  Such a pretty girl!

That is all for today.  Hope to see you next week!

God bless!

Project Life Week 43 (part III)

Hello scrapers,

Today’s Project Life is a three year old tradition for me (and my daughter-in-law and two of my grandkids).  We go to a pumpkin patch that has a lot going on.  It has been a good time all three years.

Holiday Farms with family

The first picture is of Abby on top of an American flag hay bale.  That girl is so patriotic so it is the perfect prop for her.

The second large pic is a selfie with the four of us.  I put it on a PL card and added a cute farm animal sticker.

The first two small pics are of the pig race.  🙂  I put a pig sticker on the first one.

In the third small slot I put a PL card and put all that was happening.  I added fun farm stickers around the words.

The last small slot has a picture of both kids next to a giant measuring stick.  This picture is taken every year and shows how much that they have grown.

The first picture on the bottom row is actually two pictures.  I left a space between the two and added pumpkin stickers.  The pictures are of finding the perfect pumpkin.

The last picture is also in the pumpkin patch.  I added a sticker that says, “what a great day”.

A fun day was had.  More about it tomorrow.

God bless!


Project Life Week 43 (part II)

Hola friends,

Another day in the life of my family.  I am hoping to change my PL album next year – again.  Instead of breaking it up in weeks I am planning to break it up by months.  I am trying to do that this year by posting what month it is when the new month rolls around.  I also mark when a new week rolls around.  That is what I think that I will do away with.  It is more of a hassle.  We will see when I finally get to it.  🙂

Layout 2 of week 43.

I used a journaling card and put mainly candy corn stickers and a pumpkin sticker around the edges of the card.  I also added a soccer ball because a bit of the layout has to do with Abby’s soccer game.

The first small slot has a picture of Abby’s team gathered in a huddle talking strategy.

The second and third small slots have pictures of when Brad and I went to the Bluffton Art and Seafood Festival.  I took a picture of the tent telling where we were and then of my favorite food place (not seafood) where dumplings are sold.  I always buy them whether I am hungry or not because they sell out.  Tim loves them, too, so I get some for him also.

The rest of the pictures on the page are from Holiday Farms.  This is the 3rd time that Amber and the kids went with me there to enjoy the day and pick out our pumpkins.  I think I wore the same shirt last year.  So strange!  More to follow on the next layout from our fun filled day.

God bless you and your lives!

Project Life Week 43 (A Lot of Layouts)

Hi friends,

Continuing on with PL for a few days.  I was in a car accident a few weeks ago.  It was really bad but God is good.  I am alive and healing.  I am going to go on vacation in a few weeks.  I am not sure if I am going to get to post for a bit but I will be back.  Hopefully I will make a YouTube video or two while I am gone.  🙂

First layout of PL week 43.

I took Matthew to get his hair cut.  I also took the kids to the beach for them to show Flat Stanley a good time.  The 2nd large slot has a picture that my friend sent to her son’s school to show where Flat Stanley had traveled.  She put it on Facebook and I saved a copy of it.  The bottom right picture is also a Flat Stanley picture (Abby on the beach with Flat Stanley).

The first little slot is a PL card that says “Hello”.  I put Week 43 in green and white alpha/numeric stickers.  The second small slot is my sweet Matthew snoozing in the van.  The third small slot has a PL card with a picture of a sandbox and it has the word sandbox printed on the side.  I put the word “God’s” above it in alpha stickers.  I always call the beach God’s sandbox.  The last small slot has a PL journaling card where I wrote about the pictures.  I put a brad of a pair of scissors where I told about Matthew’s haircut.

The first large pic on the bottom row is my niece in her princess dress.  She was the princess at the local high schools homecoming.  I put a clear acrylic PL card over the picture.  It has a cute saying on the upper portion of the card.

That is it for today.  More tomorrow!

God bless!

Project Life Week 42


A fun week with Project Life. A fun but short week.  Only one layout for this week.

Week 42.  Short and sweet.

In the top left and bottom left pictures I have pics of Flat Stanley.  He is a story book character that one of our friend’s son sent us to have adventures with.  If you haven’t heard about him then look him up on the computer.  It is really fun.  In the top picture the kids and I are holding Flat Stanley.  In the bottom picture we made him a place to stay in Abigail’s doll house.

There are three pictures of our front door decorated for Halloween.  It wasn’t hard to do and turned out really cute.  I did learn a lesson.  Never use masking tape on the door like that.  It was very hard to get off.  Brad had to help me and it was difficult for him, too.

The bottom small slot has a picture of Matthew with a library book.  He is quite the character – just like Flat Stanley!

The second small slot has a PL journaling card.  I wrote about the pictures and put a sticker of a silly pumpkin on it.

The third small slot has a PL card that I put alpha/numeric stickers on that say Week 42.

That is it for week 42.

May God bless you and your loved ones!

Project Life Week 41 (part II)

Hello Laddies and Lasses,

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!  A great day to be alive!  And it is a Friday?  How great is that?

Last part of PL week 41.

This page mostly has the kids at the playground when I was watching them.  The top small slot is a PL card decorated with di-cuts and stickers.  The third small slot is almost the same as the previous layout.  It is a fall colored PL card with metal adhesive leaves on it.

The last picture is me hooked up to take a sleep study.  I had been talking to my friend, Terri, about it.  She had a sleep study previously.  I sent her a picture of me looking oh so cute – yeah….

In the last small slot I have a PL journaling card.  I wrote on the top about the park and the bottom about the sleep study.  I divided the two with a border sticker.

That is it for this layout.  Week 42 next week.

God bless!

Project Life Week 41 (part 1)

Howdie Howdie!

Another week of PL is upon us.  In this week we start off finishing up our evacuation due to Hurricane Matthew.

Enjoying cousin time before going home from running from a hurricane.

This is a new PL week so I started off with a PL journaling card.  I put alpha/numeric stickers to tell that it is the 41st week of the year.  Underneath that I wrote about what was going on in the picture beside it.  I also “x”ed what day it was using the calendar provided by the journaling card.  Below that I wrote about what we found when we got home.

The right top picture is of the cousins at a fair.  We left the following morning.

The first small picture is of our fence.  A lot of the post were hollowed out.  The picture below that is of where our fence was blown down.  Work for Brad and Tim. (I even contributed a bit.)  I mounted the blown down fence picture on a PL card.  I journaled about it on the side and put a sticker that says, “Living on the edge”.

The second small picture is a fall looking PL card with metal leaf stickers adhered.

The third small slot is a picture of a booth at the fair.  It has hat pins (there was also jewelry) made from bullets.

The last small slot is of a few Halloween decorations that I found at our new favorite thrift store.

The last picture of the page is also mounted on a PL card.  I wrote about it on the side.  It is of a tree that was bent sideways.  It is at the outlets in Bluffton.  There were so many trees destroyed in the area – especially on Hilton Head.

That is it for the start of this week.  More tomorrow – I hope.

God bless!

Project Life Week 40 (part II)


Finishing up week 40 today.  Can’t wait to get our painting at our house started and finished.  The house put back together.  Company visiting.  Us vacationing.  Getting ready for graduation.  Watching our youngest graduate.  So much to look forward to.  Now….I just need to breathe.

How we spend our time when we evacuate.

The first picture is really fuzzy.  We drove by where the skate park is here in Bluffton.  The National Guard was setting up to help however they could.  There were a lot of soldiers on site.  Pretty awesome!

We went to a park in GA with my niece and her friend.  We took a lot of pictures.  Diego even got to go.  Fun time.  I wrote about it on a PL journaling card on the second row.

The last picture is of my cute toe nails.  I had fall leaves painted on them.  I had blingy shoes, too.  I got a little pampered during this evacuation.

That is it for now.

God bless!

Project Life Week 40 (part I)

Hi my faithful few,

Back to Project Life today.  Twelve more weeks until LAST year is finished.  I am always on catch up.  🙂

Evacuating for a hurricane – this KS girl never thought that would happen.

The first pic is before evacuation.  It was a pretty nice day.  I was wearing my shirt that said, “The beach is calling and I must go”.  Brad and I went.  Beautiful!

The second card on the top row is a PL journaling card.  I journaled about Hurricane Matthew and about evacuating.  I adhered a bottle top that had October printed on it on the card. I also wrote the week number.

On the second row I put pictures of us getting ready to evacuate (of course we had to take our pup.  The right half had one picture, cut in half, of our home.  I wasn’t sure what it would look like when we returned.

On the bottom row was a picture of Tim in the car waiting for us to leave.  I wrote the date with a slick writer on the picture.  The last picture was the three of us standing in front of our house.  We really didn’t know what to expect but it all worked out fine.  Praise the Lord!

Many blessing to you all!

Tough Little Guy

Hi friends,

This is the last layout that I have for Matthew’s album.  Then to finish up Project Life for the year.  I have enjoyed this album.  My youngest grandson will be turning 5 in a few months.  I see another album (for all of my grandkids) in the future.  Before that, PL and Tim’s scrapbook(s) for high school.

This boy pulls my heart strings every day (as do all of my grandkids).

On this layout I used one of the pieces of decorative paper from Matthew’s album.  I matted the right picture but adhered the other picture right onto the background sheet.  After that was adhered I adhered the matted picture and had it butt right up against the other picture.  I had a cute suns and clouds sticker that I put at the top of the left picture.

The word little was already on the paper (it was to be put beside another page that had another word on it to make a two page layout but that isn’t how I chose to do it).  I used alpha stickers to put “tough” beside “little” and “guy” below the word.

I then used a strip of paper that I had been saving for a long time.  It says, “the world is mud-licious and puddle wonderful”.  I put it just above the top right picture, leaving a space above it to put a tag.  On the tag I wrote, “Happy 4th birthday” and then the date.  I adhered it with a brad in the shape of a star.

That is it for today (and for this album).  I have already organized the album in chronological order and it is lovely.  I hope that he loves it some day.

God bless!
