Project Life 2013 - Week 24

Aloha! Thank you so much for the sweet comments on my last post - it's great to know there are a few of you out there actually reading these posts! ha! And please, if you happen to stumble upon my blog and like what you see and you also blog your Project Life layouts, leave a comment with your blog address - I'm always on the lookout for inspiration!!

Ok, so moving right along to Week 24 - June 9 - June 15, 2013:

I really love this layout. I mixed and matched cards from the Seafoam, Jade, Midnight, and Honey kits along with LOTS of Emily Merritt printables this week. I also mixed in little embellishments and tags from Studio Calico and Elle's Studio here and there. Here's a look at the left side of the page:

That Sunday label on the top right 4x6 card with the 2 instagram photos from our Twin Falls hike is from the Days of the Week stamp set by Evalicious. Pretty much all of the printed 3x4 cards on both the left and right side of the layout are from the Hey There collection by Emily Merritt. And just because I think it's a really cute story (and you might not be able to read it), the journaling on that speech bubble card reads: "Joel was trying to explain the concept of ethnicity to Dean (b/c he seems convinced that Mario is Japanese". After, to gauge Dean's understanding, I asked him if he knew what his own ethnicity is. His answer, without hesitation: "English and Hawaiian". Yeah. I think we totally nailed that lesson."

The right side of the layout is more of the same really. I love the top right photo that I took of Dean's Andy Warhol-inspired portrait of Buckminster Fuller he created at his first week of Art Camp. We saved the original painting to frame, but simply taking a photo of it worked perfectly to include in Project Life!

Some stats, because I think it's fun when Elise Cripe does this, so I thought I'd start as well:

Ratio of photos taken by Jen to photos taken by Joel: 8 to 3  
Ratio of Galaxy S3 Phone Photos to "real camera" photos: 10 to 1

I will be sharing a link to this post on The Mom Creative blog.

OMG, so many things to love about this-love Joel's pic of you trimming in your bikini top, Dean's new haircut definitely makes him look so much older and can I tell you how much I love him running in his undies (that sounds weird)...but it's something my kids NEVER did. I remember when I was a kid eating dinner in mine so that's why I love you capturing that.

Great pages!
