Project Life 2013 - week 33

So much going on this past week, the biggest being my daughter's first day of Kindergarten!  I made a separate insert for some photos and can't wait to start her school album for all the stuff I'm sure I'll be collecting over the years.

Here is the full spread,  I used quite a few cards from the Studio Calico Mark's & Co. kits and lots and lots of photos.

Squeezing as much fun as we can into our days while our family is here visiting.  Thankfully our summer weather came back as we hit the weekend.

I kept the title card simple this week, seems to be a pattern with me but you know, go with what works right. Of course I got hit with a migraine but my trusty nurse/doctor was ready and willing to take care of me.  The pink card flips up with some more photos and text if you're wondering what that's all about. I ended up with more collages than normal, it happens when you're super busy and have lots to include. I adore the little note my niece left for Simone one day.  Its one of two and I need to remember to track down the other one and at least take a picture before it gets lost. The coolest truck ever to take photos with except it was filled with hornets and lots of nests so we snapped and skedaddled quickly. Oh and we're eating lots of yummy food!

This is the insert I made for Simone's first day of school. I took a stab at creating a digital background with a stamp for the first time. The stamp comes from a super cute little set that Studio Calico slipped into my box this past month. It was a little freebie they sent to all of the Rewards Members as a thank you, how nice is that!  I stamped the image on a piece of cardstock and then scanned that image to create a digital stamp. I stamped them randomly and in different sizes and colors and printed my two favorite pictures from the morning for the front. I printed another frame out on the same cardstock for my little title and used a whole bunch of foam tape to lift it all off the page. I added a few gold glitter stars from the Studio Calico Atlantic Collection and then stamped one of the sentiments that came with the set in the upper left.


I made another larger collage of a few more photos and added sweet poem that a friend shared with me that day for the backside.

If you're curious about the little school house box Simone is carrying, its a printable from Claudine Hellmuth from her Etsy shop. I filled it with some treats for the teacher and it was a big hit.

I hope you have a great rest of the week and if you're kids are starting back to school I hope they have a really great day and year.
