This morning she dressed herself in “layers.”  She had on her hoodie, over a shirt, over a tunic, over a dress, with jeans under.  She wore this to school.  She’s worn a cape and a headband with kitty ears to school before so I don’t find this very strange at all.

Project Life 2015 – Title Page, Week 1 and 2


Couldn’t decide if I wanted to go completely digital or paper so decided to stick to hybrid.  I purchased the Project Life 52 digital kit so that I can use it both digitally and print for when I need/want to create a paper page.  My title page was printed and so was the first page of week 1.  The rest are done either with the Project Life App or with Photoshop.

I also used a journal card from the Project Life Maddie Holmes kit, Winter Theme Cards from the Project Life App, and houses from Far Far Hill.

In Love With Project Life Kits

An update on my kits.  I couldn’t find the box for the Amber edition so it’s missing from the photo.  The two smaller kits on top were recently purchased this week.  I haven’t opened the Super Cute kit yet but will be using it for my kids toddler years.  The Foil Kit, designed by Heidi Swapp, is so beautiful.  My 7-year-old created a cute card for her substitute teacher, who’s last day is today (her real teacher was on maternity leave), using a journal card and embellishments from this kit.  She ended up using all the diamond shaped embellishments.  She loved them so much.  I had wanted to take a photo of the card but had already sealed it.  The best part of the card was not the journal card and embellishments, unfortunately, although they were pretty awesome.  The best part was her drawing.  She told me, “Tape the photo (of her with her sub-teacher taken last month) up high because I’m going to draw [teacher’s name] and me holding the photo.”

There are new PL kits coming out in the next few months and I’m really excited to get a hold of them.  This is what happens when you follow PL groups on Facebook.

Apple Pie

This was my first time making apple pie.  I used pre-made pie crust and fuji apples.  It was so delicious.  I probably ate most of it.  If apple pie with two scoops of vanilla ice cream ever went extinct, I’d go crazy.
