The last hurrah so to speak with our visiting family so I had a lot to include and most of it made it in.
I tried as best I could to stay with a black, white and red theme this week so all of the cards I pulled from my Studio Calico kit were in that color palette. My insert threw off the theme a bit but it's all good. This is probably the first and last time you'll see my butt in my spread (hopefully). We had a crazy, crazy hot day, happily we moved to the morning kinder class and we're all super happy about that. My nieces hitting up my makeup stash, summer ladybugs, lots of party prep and a tasty bottle of wine.
It's always funny when my family comes to stay, us girls always end up obsessing about one phrase or theme the whole time and this year was no different and a certain movie was the focus. We had a great day trip in to Alameda one day and shopped and ate and quoted our hearts out. The card on the top right was made using a Studio Calico stamp image that I purchased digitally and a super cute piece of home town flair I bought that day. I wanted to pay homage to our town in some way on the spread and I totally love it. The bottom half was centered around a day my husband and sister in law took their mom out gambling. She loves it and had a blast that day. I made the photos black and white because the colors were a bit off due to the inside light and the clashing colors but still left some color popping out on the slot machine and the playing cards. I love how this looks and it worked with the black and white card up top.
Up top one card flips out and explains the quote above it a bit better and let me squeeze in a few more photos.
We had two big events on Saturday a soccer jamboree for Simone and a family outdoor movie party that same night so I used one insert for them both.
Luckily for me two parents took some great shots during the game so they get credit for the top and bottom shots. I did get the one of her with the giant soccer ball on our way to the team pictures. Simone had a great game and the journaling card flips out and has a screen grab of my texts with my husband before he rushed to the game to see her make two more goals. One of the parents happened to film her making one goal so that's where the QR code leads too.
The backside is for the movie night, so much fun was had by all. I wish I had remembered to take pics before it got really dark so our next movie night will start a bit earlier so I can get some better shots.
On Monday our family went home so its super quiet here now so we're slowing getting back into our routine. I hope you have a great rest of the week!
