Project Life | September 12-18

Here are my Project Life pages for the week of September 12-18.  I haven't posted many of my previous weeks because I thought you readers out there in blog-land might not find them too interesting. Well, I'm going to stop hoarding them, and start posting them.  Mainly becasue {I have to confess} I love this project, and I love surfing the web to check out other people's PL pages. 
With the upcoming release of new Becky Higgins Project Life products, I think it's a great time to spread the news about how AMAZING this project truly is...and encourage you to participate.
I...
Love the simplicity
Love the page inserts
Love the journaling cards
Love that you can make it your way
Love that there are lots of places to tuck in photos and scraps of everyday life
It is amazing...It is fun..It is rewarding...you won't be sorry.

So here is the full spread {sorry about the glare}. This week I also included two additional pages/inserts {you will see them a little farther down}.

Below, I have a little intro card with the dates, a kraft tag stamp with Ali Edwards stamps, an Ortho 'report card' for Kyle, and my favorite part...the 'bean' conversation between Nathan, Brett and I. I also wanted to document Cody and Nathan's first time walking to school without me, the {temporary} change in weather, and a sick day for one.
*LOVE* this conversation:
The second page has photos from Riverside National Cemetery where my Mom is burried {it was her birthday}, instagram shots of the aircraft flying over the cemetery {March AFB is next door}, a quick story about our birthday celebration, a Starbucks Gift Card -which btw has the perfect little 'family tree' on it..totally symbolic of spending the day with my Dad & Sister at the grave site {I can't stop collecting those gift cards!}, a puched tag, and everyday photos of backyard sword fights - a little one falling asleep with a Tootsie Pop in his mouth {can you spell c-a-v-i-t-y?}, and Cody getting ready for his first football game of the season.

Here are the two page inserts I added.  The top is a front and back journaling strip.  The text was simply copied from my recent 'Blog Your Heart' post.  The page peeking out underneath shows a few more instagram shots from the week and a stamped journaling spot.


Have I mentioned that I love cork and kraft..anything?  -LOL! 












Last, a close up of a journaling card {with a type-o..that has been fixed} and the cute little Starbucks 'family tree themed' gift card  {with a rogue scrap of paper}.  The gift card was actually my inspiration point for these pages...love it! :)
Thanks so much for stopping in.  Hope to see you again soon!

love, lisa
