Project Life 2013, Week 17

Hello? Is this thing on? It's been awhile...sorry for the long absence. I wonder if anyone is still out there reading this? Things have been busy around here and my regular blog posting was the thing that got put on the back burner. We enjoyed a nice family vacation to San Diego with Joel's Mom and Stepdad a few weeks ago and I've been busy getting things ready for our school's Staff Appreciation Week next week (I'm on the small Staff Appreciation Committee). I have managed to keep up with Project Life, just not the blogging about it. So anyway, I'm just going to pick up with the week I'm on and I'll try to go back and share the several weeks I've missed as I have time in the next few weeks.

So, Week 17...

I used a mixture of products from the Seafoam kit, from Studio Calico, from my stash, and lots of printed digital goodies from Emily Merritt at The Lilypad this week! Here's a closer look at the left side of the spread:

 On the left side, as usual, I used a Seafoam card for my "anchor" card, but added some numbers from the Circle Alpha Sticker set by Emily Merritt. I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the "week" word as well as all of the printed digi embellishments from the Thumbs Way Up kit, also by Emily Merritt. The "Live, Laugh, Love" card is from a Studio Calico grab bag. The yellow alpha stickers are from the Letters Snap Stickers by Simple Stories. The "Life is in Session" card is from the True Statements Cards No. 1 pack by Emily Merritt.

On the right side, I used several more of the printed digi embellishments from the Thumbs Way Up kit and that cool "Fun" card is from the Spring Break Cards by Emily Merritt. I'm not sure if I'm supposed to be posting this now or not, but you guys are also getting a sneak peek at that fun "This Rocks" card, which is from the new Ahoy kit that will be releasing Saturday, May 4 from Emily Merritt at The Lilypad! The multi-colored triangle card is from the April Studio Calico Project Life kit and the little alpha stickers are hoarded from various Studio Calico kits. At the bottom left of the right side of the layout, I used a Flip Pocket to add a few extra photos of a Saturday morning tidepool exploration on the North Shore at Ho'okipa. There's a little tab to make it easy to flip the pocket up where you can see the 2 extra photos underneath. Here's a closer look:

And a closer look at some of my other favorite details of this week's spread...

And that's it for Week 17! Feels so good to be caught up! I'll try to pop back in this weekend and share a few other weeks that I've missed since my last post. Let me know if anyone is still out there reading this - hopefully I haven't lost all of my readers with my long silence!!

Love it! Your sign/painting is wonderful as is your little succulent planting. Too funny bc my little guy just picked out a cactus to plant yesterday, and we did a succulent planting this time last year. Oh, and you're so brave! I'm too shy to do video chatting with anyone! Seems I'm just too old fashioned for this high tech world :)
