Project Life Tuesday - Week 33



The Mom Creative

Welcome to Project Life Tuesday!  Every week I share photos of a layout I've been working on, either in my family's weekly book or my son's baby book.  I started using the Project Life system in 2010, so this will be my fourth full year!  I used to be a very traditional scrapbooker who would spend hours on a single layout to document one or two photos.  Thanks to Project Life, I have become much more practical and I'm able to record a multitude more memories.

If you're looking for inspiration on what others are doing with their Project Life, you can check out my board on Pinterest and be sure to link up on The Mom Creative!

Project "Get Caught Up on My Album" has officially begun, which is why you see a LOT more digital stuff here than I usually do.  In the name of git 'er done, my mouse and I have been hard at work in Photoshop Elements.  Here's what I have so far!

Since this week featured my 30th birthday, I decided to go a little more GIRLY than I usually would.  I used pops of pink and florals to give these pages of feminine touch.

I used the Amy Tan Cut & Paste kit for this layout and I love how the teals and subtle neutrals played off the colors in my photos.   And can we please talk about how cute my baby is with those balloons???

Insert H:

I added a Design H insert (which is basically a Design A cut in half) to this week to capture the photos from two different events - our rain check zoo date with some friends and the day when my children got to meet Baby Gabbie for the first time.

Nothing really overly complicated here, folks.  Just photos and a journaling card!

I really went for it and played with the pink on the flip side of this insert.  I mean, how often do I get to use PINK in my scrapbooking?  After Gabriella was settled into her new home, I brought over the lasagna I made for Mom and Dad and introduced her to my three sons....giving her three solid options for a future husband.  They are all so different and uniquely wonderful so I am confident she will be able to choose one of them to marry someday so this precious girl will be my daughter-in-law.

Just kidding.

Maybe. 

It would be kind of cool, though.

This page is all about my birthday!!!  My co-workers were kind enough to treat me to an evening of dessert fondue at The Melting Pot on my special day.  Plus, I got more Project Life goodies as a gift!!  Go me!!!  The last couple photos are from a visit to my parents' house the next day where I got to see my sister and snuggle My Prize.  I sure miss that darling baby!!

So, this is about as far as I am caught up right now and I have exactly ZERO free time to scrapbook soon.  I hope to be back on PL Tuesday again next week, but I guess we will see!

    1. Thanks Linda! It's probably going to stick out like a sore thumb in my otherwise boy-dominated scrapbook, but I don't care. It was fun to do something girly!
