Project Life - Week 45

A perfect example this week of wait until its all done before you make a judgement call.  I was not feeling this at all this week, I was dealing with some pesky printer issues, feeling as if my colors were all over the place with no cohesion and then the last slot gets placed in and its all good.  After such a theme heavy week last week, its hard sometimes to get back into the everyday groove.  These are the weeks that are more real, more of the day to day that will be so fun to look back on.  Yes, holiday's are great, parties are fun but the real, that's what life is all about.

Here is the whole spread, sorry the photo is a big wonky, I guess I didn't take a very straight shot.


This week was not all about us.  The beauty of this project is I get to celebrate not only what happens in our little nucleus, but the big things that happen to our family as well.  My brother and his wife had a pretty major one this past week.  The top right flips up and you'll see that below.  A-mazing for sure!  There was plenty of living for Simone and I this week as well.  Larry was back East visiting his son, daughter in law and their new baby, so just us girls had to keep busy.  Simone's teacher does an amazing job of decorating the classroom seasonally and this week was no exception, walking in Monday morning to this was pretty cool for the kids.  We found some supper yummy seasonal cookies at the store and our state is finally catching up to fall.  I got the most amazing gift in the mail, my new Amazeballs stamp.  I used it on the title card and just love it.  Simone had her last night of soccer for the season, she's very sad it has ended and yes, there was an election.


Here is the inside of the flip up.  Makes me tear up even now, just so happy for them and the once in a lifetime opportunity they had. 


Here is the right side.  We dropped 25 degrees in a matter or two days so bring on the soup.  Simone and I kept busy doing things like making yummy muffins.  Imagine my delight to see my image in Kelly's new book that just got released.  Simone and I also watched plenty of movies, this is a new favorite for sure. Larry with the baby and the boys together.  Christmas is getting so close, the count down around here has started and Simone is super busy creating Christmas surprises at a feverish pace.  We ended the week with Larry home, happy to have him, 3 are so much better than 2.


Thanks for stopping by!

  1. It looks great! I get frustrated a lot when I feel like mine is not coming together. It's so hard to want to make every little pocket really detailed, but sometimes you just can't.

    1. Hi Mandee, thanks so much. I did make the map card but I did find the map, the results and the square election 2012 images online. The blue banner with the gold edge I made myself. Hope that helps.
