Project Life : Week 08

Yep, another Project Life post this week. But now I'm caught up on the blog again. First, I have a little shop news. The 20 Questions albums are now sold out, but I'd like to spread a little Leap Day love. From now through Thursday, March 1st at noon EST (extended to 9pm EST), I'm offering 29% off in my shop. I still have some mixed paper minibooks left + unlimited quantities of the 20 Questions PDF. Use the coupon code 29LEAP. Offer has expired, thank you!

Week 08 : February 20-26

Photos : M+P getting Mardi Gras beads at the grocery store, a visit with the Treibers, Parker watching the snow fall + hanging out with his cousins, Morgan/Foofa playing photographer + spelling her name, a special breakfast treat with Daddy and some after-breakfast coloring. Lots of pictures of the kids this week.

Other Bits : an email from my mom (inside a folded 4x6 journaling card), packaging from a tea bag + a (the cutest!) drawing Morgan made of Mark.

Insert : 6x12 layouts of the time I spent with my sister, nephews + mom this week.

I forgot to take a picture of it, but the tag behind the photo of the kids from Fat Tuesday (labeled Beads) has some journaling on it. Copied + pasted from this blog post. More detailed shots :

For the inserts, I used Ali Edwards Words and Photos 6x12 Layered Templates. I love these for adding longer stories - which is exactly what I was hoping to incorporate in my Project Life album. The front side was pictures and text from this blog post last week - when my sister and nephews visited. Love how easy it is to just copy + paste what I already wrote on the blog. These layouts really should be borderless but I made the mistake of cutting my photo paper down to 6x12 and then printing. Next time I will print and trim and it should work out better. Lesson learned.
And on the back I used a different template to write about my weekend with my mom and sister. We spent the entire weekend scrapbooking! Well, and lots of talking and laughing too. Despite dealing with a dead car battery, we had a blast!
Last weekend, after I got caught up on my Project Life layouts, I made some little tags for the spines of my We R Memory Keepers albums using a custom flair button from Ormolu and some Lily Bee alphabet stickers. I already know I'm going to have 2 albums for Project Life this year, so I have a Volume 01 + Volume 02 :
I'm not going to add them to the albums until they are complete + sitting on a shelf though. The album I am working on is always open, so since the button does stick out a bit past the front of the metal label holder, I'll slip this tag in when the album is full. 

I used a fair amount of old product this week and couldn't find links to most of it. If you have a question about what something is, please feel free to ask in the comments below.

I have also linked up my Week 8 layout to Kristina's Project Life Tuesday (or Wednesday?) :)
