Project Life Week 47


Just a one page Project Life week.  That is definitely the exception.  I wish I had more of those but I guess my life is too exciting (yeah, right).

Project Life week 47.

The first small slot is a pumpkin sticker on a yellow PL card.

The second small slot has a picture of my newest pedicure – Christmas trees on my big toe.  It is almost Christmas!

The large slot on the top row has chip board banners that I put “week 47” stickers on.  I also put stickers that say “thanksgiving” in the little squares down below the banners.  Finally I wrote that we went to Greensboro the weekend after Thanksgiving at the bottom of the card.


The first horizontal slot is the last pic of Thanksgiving.

The bottom horizontal slot has a picture of Matthew and Abby on a sleigh.  It is attached to a piece of Christmas cardstock.

The last picture on the page is Tim and Camila at the mall in Greensboro.  I put a heart sticker on the picture.

That is all for the entire week.  Hip hip hooray.

God bless!



Project Life Week 46 (part II)

Hi friends,

I have finished up week 46 in Project Life today.  It is not a great picture.  I used a lot of bulky stickers and fun things that made the light reflect off the plastic when I took the picture.

Part two of PL week 46.

The first large slot and the first two small slots have a picture of Abby and I at her school for grandparent’s day.  Above her face I put a flower spinner that says “I love this” and you point it to what you love.  I pointed it to “girl”.  I put an “A+” sticker above a grandma sticker. I had to give myself kudos.  🙂  I also put a pencil sticker below where I documented about the day.

The rest of the pics on the page were about Thanksgiving.  Besides our immediate family we had our cousins from Charleston come.  It was an excellent day.  I love the bulky “family” sticker that I put above the first pic of Thanksgiving.  I also put a PL card that says “Thankful”.

Sorry for the shiny picture.  I hope you get the drift of what was happening.  Hope to see you tomorrow!

God bless!


Project Life Week 46

Hello dear friends,

I am scrapping week 46 today.  It is mostly of my hubby’s birthday.

Project Life week 46.

The first three large pics are of my hubby’s birthday.  We found these fun lotus candles (Saw them on Facebook and ordered them off Amazon.  Now they are at Walmart.) that we have been using on our birthday cakes.

The first small slot has a PL card that I put “week 46” on.  I also Brad’s name and age where the card has a space for it on the bottom.  Thought it was appropriate since it is the page where we are celebrating his birthday.

The next two small slots have pics that I found on my phone of Absey taking selfies.  Silly girl!  In the space on the last large slot I wrote about her taking the selfies.  I also put a sticker that says “crazy”.  I started it on one of her selfie pics and continued it onto the last large picture slot.

The last picture that I put on the layout is of a fortune cookie that I received.  I think it was more of a wisdom cookie.  It says, “What is right is often forgotten by what is convenient.”.  I had to use part of two slots because it is in landscape mode.  I actually have the real fortune.  I adhered it to the bottom of the picture.

That is all for today.  Hope to have more on here tomorrow.

God bless!


Project Life Week 45 (part II)

Hi friends,

Back again with more Project Life.  I am finishing up week 45 which means 7 more weeks for 2016.  Nothing to brag about.  😉

Part 2 of week 45 in PL.

The first picture is of Abby and I taking a selfie at her school’s Fun Run.  She is always happy when I show up and I am always happy to see her happy.  The first two small pics are of Abby walking and then running.  The right large pic and the third small one is of Matthew cheering her on.

The bottom right pic is on a cute piece of paper.  It goes on into the bottom small slot, too.  The picture is of Halloween costumes that I found for an awesome price.  I had to get some for nieces and nephews as well as grandkids.  I wrote costume bargains on the cute paper. In the small slot I put the piece of the picture on a PL card and I put acorn stickers on the card, too.  The last picture is of Matthew trying on a Scooby Doo costume once we got home.  I think I found out why it was so cheap.  Besides being after Halloween, a foot was sewn on backwards.  🙁

That is it for week 45.  Week 46 tomorrow?

God bless!


Creating Origami Flowers

HI friends,

I was gone a LONG time on vacation (to see family and friends) and then a friend returned with me and I showed her my area of the country.  It was a great time but I am excited to be back.

While I was gone my friends and I made some flowers out of paper for my friend’s daughter’s wedding.  They are going to make the bouquets and centerpieces out of these flowers.  I am going to show you a couple of pictures of the finished flowers (not bouquets or centerpieces – I will post them after the wedding).  I am also posting a YouTube video link so you can see how they were made.

A few petals put together into complete flowers.

Several flowers completed ready to be made into centerpieces.

see Youtube Video

I am looking forward to getting back on track and doing some fun scrapbooking and a few other crafts mixed in.

Hope to see you tomorrow!

God bless!


Frames, Frames, Frames

Hey y’all,

First I need to tell you that I won’t be on her for about a month.  Please keep checking back.  Let me tell you about the adventure I am about to embark on.  First my husband, son, and I are going to KC to see his side of the family.  We are having a mini family reunion for a handful of days.  Then, we are going back to the part of KS where I lived and where we shared the biggest part of our married life.  We are going to visit friends and more family.  Then, my hubby is driving home, my son is going to go hang with his grandparents for a bit, and I am flying to Washington to see my wonderful friend and her wonderful family.  Then, I am flying back to KS for about a week.  Then, my buddy that I first met in high school and I are flying back to my home.  She is going to stay for a week or so.What a fun time.  After that my son has prom and he will be graduating from high school.  Just in case you were wondering….he has already fulfilled all of the needed credits to graduate.  He is going down to help his grandparents get their house ready to move (and to enjoy their company).

On to my frames!

A little back history.  When my sister died I bought a lot of frames.  Most of them were aqua because she loved the ocean and beach.  I filled them with a lot of memories.  After her funeral I kept some of the pictures out but I put a lot of them away.  I have several empty frames.  After painting the scrapbook room I have been trying to organize, get ride of things that I don’t ever use, and get rid of clutter.  I was trying to figure out what to do with the frames.

I really do love them and they match my newly painted upstairs.  The obvious answer is to put pictures in them.  I did do that to one.  I put a picture of when Brad and I took two of the grandkids to the aquarium.  I have a cork board where I put quotes that I found that inspired me.  I am going to use the cork board for something else so two of the quotes I framed.  Here is the result.

All three of the frames clustered together. I didn’t keep them that way.

One of the quotes I really like.

The quote says, “It is what you read when you don’t have to that determines what you will be when you can’t help it.  It was a little too small for the opening.  I had a piece of aqua burlap that I trimmed down.  I then attached the paper to it.  Awesome!

Another quote that I love!

This really looks awesome in person.  The paper is glittery.  It says, “Anyone can find the dirt in someone.  Be the one that finds the gold.  Proverbs 11:27”.

I still have more frames but the quotes didn’t work for the frames.  I need to find more pics or quotes.  Or come up with another creative idea.

God bless!


Project Life Week 45

Hey, hey, hey (I want to continue and say, “It’s Fat Albert” – that was my favorite cartoon as a kid),

I am starting week 45.  I am moving on up (like The Jeffersons – I didn’t really care for that show much).

A fun start to the week.

The first picture is of senior toga day.  I was pretty surprised that Tim wanted to wear a toga but he did.  He looked up on the internet about how to tie it.

The first small slot is a PL journaling card.  I wrote “week 45” and all about the pictures.  I used a lot of color because of the picture with Abby and Matthew in front of the Troll movie sign.  We did go and we all enjoyed it.

The second small slot is a PL card that says “dream big”.  I used it because of all the colors.

The next picture is of Brad pushing the kids on the swing at the park (we go to the park quite frequently).

The last picture is of Abby talking to a friend at her school’s Fun Run.  I trimmed down a green piece of burlap and used the corner rounder on the corners.  I didn’t know if it would work well but it worked great.  I attached the picture to the burlap with regular adhesive.  Cute!  The only drawback is it was a little thick and a little difficult to get into the slot.

That is all for today!

God bless!


Project Life Memory Page


On Friday I added an extra page in September (the benefit of using a 3 ring binder is you can easily change your pages around or add pages).  Well, on the back side of the slots that I filled with the Angel Oak pics were a lot of empty slots.  I decided to fill those slots with memory pics.  Pictures that I have been sent or found on Facebook (however I came across them) that are older than this years book.  Most of them are much older.

My PL memory page.

The first picture is of my dad in his Air Force uniform.  He was at the house where he was born and raised.  I centered it on a PL card.  In the first small slot I found a card with stars and journaling.  I wrote about the picture.  I also added two “flags”.  One with stripes and one says love.  I then put a gold star on the side of the “flags”.

The second pic has my Uncle Gordon in it.  He was the local sheriff for a year.  I didn’t realize that.  In the last small slot I used a journaling card that says “details here” with a hand pointing up.  I wrote about the picture and I added a sticker that says “family”.

On the bottom row the first picture is of my mom and me holding my nephew Jaden.  The second small slot is a PL card that says “Hello Fine Fellow”.  I thought that was fitting.  I wrote about the picture on the card at the bottom.

The last picture on the page is of my dad’s mom.  We called her Mom.  The children are my two oldest brothers and my cousin. The third small slot has a PL journaling card that has a large & sign on it.  I journaled about the picture and then put a sticker that says “family” on the top.

That is it for this day.  See you tomorrow!

God bless!


Family Pics at the Angel Oak Tree

Howdy howdy,

Today I am going back to the month of September in my Project Life album.  One thing that I love about a PL album is that it is a 3 ring binder.  I can add a page if I need to.  Well….I needed to.  We took family pics at an old, huge tree and I forgot to print them off for PL.  I  couldn’t let that slip by so I printed them and added them to my album.

Some of the family at the Angel Oak.

I started off with a PL card that I thought was perfect.  It had a bird sitting on a tree limb.  It left a space to write so I wrote the date.  I then put a family pic of all the family that lives in SC.

The first small space has a PL card that I wrote about the day.  The second small space is a PL card that says “A Little Bit Crazy in Love”.  I thought that was appropriate because below it is a pic of my son and his wife.

The third small space has a card that has a lot of words about family all over it.  The last small card is a PL card that I put a chipboard sticker that says “family” on it.

The last picture on the page is of my son and his family.

That is it for this week.  Have a wonderful weekend!

God bless!


Project Life Week 44 (part 3)

Hello my  creative friends,

Today I am finishing up Halloween week (and a few other things happened in that week, too).

The last page of week 44. Another week bites the dust!

The first small slot on the page is a Halloween PL card.  I put a Trick or Treat sticker at the top and then added a few stickers of candy.

In the second small slot I wrote about the Halloween pics on a PL journaling card.  I also put a crazy jack-o-lantern sticker on the card and a sticker that says treats.

The first large picture on the page is Abigail, Amber, and Matthew getting ready to go door to door.  I went with them and Brad stayed home to give out candy.

The horizontal picture is of Matthew (Thor) and Abigail (a lalaloopsy kitty) in front of a wiener Halloween dog.

The last large slot (on the bottom row) is a PL card with a place for the date and journaling.  I wrote that it was 11/04/16.  I put a voting sticker on the card and how we voted.  It was Tim’s first time voting.  Afterwards I took him to school and his favorite teacher was in the office.  I took the opportunity to take a picture of them together.  I wrote about that on the journaling card.  I put an arrow sticker pointing to the picture on the card.

On the picture of Tim and his fav teacher I put a chipboard sticker that I have been saving for years.  It says favorite teacher and has an apple on it.  Perfect!  Tim didn’t have too many of those.

That is it for week 45.  Crazy!  Still in 2016.  Working my way through it – not giving up!

God bless!
