Project Life: Weeks 37 and 38

Still chugging along. I'll get caught up sooner or later. 

Week 37 and I worked mostly with gray, blue and red.

page one:
A pretty large mix of paper and digital products this week. For paper I used my Cherry and Midnight kits on this page. I felt the need to scrap my thoughts about this particular 9.11. Also, included a throw away card from Magic the Gathering, because that's what my husband were playing a lot of this week. 

insert:
We got a life size Mickey balloon for Nox's 2nd birthday and he hung around for quite awhile before he lost all his air. I thought it would be fun to write up a little something about his floating adventures in our home. 

page two:
We went to a craft fair and I collected quite a few business cards. I selected a few of my favorites and made a pocket for them using two Cherry kit journal cards and some washi. The second half is dinner with my mother and all the pictures are by Munch. 

Week 38 marked the beginning of fall, so I went with some fall colors. 

page one:
I love adding recipes from our week, I've been printing extras to make a book. I need to work on putting that together. Really like the instagram collage with a journal card to match. Also that Batman and his Pup photo? One of my favorites. 

page two:
Mostly digital on this side. I know I should be working on getting my paper scraps down, but it's so nice to work on my computer and not worry about the kids getting into my supplies. 

detail shot:
Joplin decided to squeeze herself into one of John's Magic the Gathering card boxes...so I decided to make a game card out of her. It took me forever to find a template I could use...and I have no clue where I found it. I really love it though. We can be a little dorky sometimes, but I think it's great that I have a place to record it. 

I'll be linking up with The Mom Creative.

I love your attitude that you'll get caught up eventually. Makes me feel better. :) Great pages!

What a great idea to include a favorite recipe (like you did w/ the bacon roasted brussel sprouts).

I totally recognized the picture from week 37 of you holding up your shoes w/ a shopping bag. Isn't that your profile pic? :)

Lovely spreads! The grey is a great backdrop (and let's your photos shine!) The life with Mickey card is such a good idea.

Hi Cerise. Must say your layouts are looking great! Week 37 in particular, the colour scheme is just lovely and helps pull everything together. When l first opened it up, my thoughts were....oh Cerise! :-)
PS - we're a little dorky too

Great job "chugging" along :) I have the same feeling... It will get done. I have been doing this since 2009. I usually get behind on journaling by summer with kiddies and fun to do, but it gets done... Or will ecventually! I still have a few journaling gaps from 2011 I've been plugging away at. At least the pictures are in their spot!

I don't really ever comment on these, but your Project Life pages are so beautiful. What a fun way to remember all the goings on in the year.
