Project Life | Weeks 36-38

Stopping by to share with a quick post my Project Life for part of the month of September 2012.  I have already started 2013 and will probably start sharing 2013 in the next two weeks, but for these next days I will share a bit more of 2012.

Week 36
 This week started with Labor Day and me putting together some IKEA furniture for my Studio/Scrap Room that I just relocated to another room in the house (believe it or not I had it on my main living room for almost 2 years, but decided to move into one of the bedrooms in my house).

 Labor Day brought me a super surprise! I received a phone call that I ignored because I did not recognized the number (and had been receiving lots of calls from candidates running for the upcoming elections).  A few seconds later I heard my phone make the sound it makes when somebody leaves a message... so I thought OK I'll listen to it later... followed by the sound of somebody leaving me a text message.  This time I though OK this must be a family member or somebody that really knows me and wants to really get a hold of me, so I proceeded to turn around and grab the phone... Boy was I surprised when I read the words "Hi Sunshine, it's me...."!!  I had not heard from Arnel who happens to be the only person that ever called me Sunshine, in exactly 24 years.
Even thou we met later that day I am including in my PL a picture I found from the 80's and a picture we took together later that month since we did not take a picture the day we reconnected.

Week 37

 My layouts are very simple these 3 weeks because I wanted to show my BFF Abby that you do not have to add too much froo froo All that matters is that you get the pictures in the pockets and write the journaling down.

I did do some stamping on week 36 using Ki stamps I purchased at Studio Calico but it was limited.  For my weeks 37 and 38 below all I have is pictures and a few journaling cards.  On week 37 the cards are from the Simple Stories Snap collection and below for week 38 a mix of Simple Stories and Echo Park.

Just added stickers to form the week and number of the week and used a date stamper that you can find at any office supply store.

See comadrita (my BFF Abby), very simple.  What's important is to get it down in writing, just ask my daughter and son-in-law who just loved it when they saw my PL album in person last month.
