Project Life | Weeks 39-45

I meant to share sooner but just could not make it outside to take good or decent pictures of my super thick PL album!  And speaking of thick album I had to go purchase a wider/thicker one because all my pages would not fit!

This time I am also including a LO, actually I included three more LO to my PL but the other two I have previously shared here on my blog.

And here are weeks 39 and 40 combined. Even thou I did take plenty of pictures these two weeks, I did not take pictures every single day and that is just OK with me.

 Used Simple Stories Snap collection cards, Basic Grey abc stickers,  a tad of stitching,
and some fun stamping!

I used a Basic Grey POTM kit to create my LO tweaking it just a bit and adding stitching.

I followed the LO of the intended POTM with the exception of adding my title.
 I changed the design a bit here on my journaling by adding the arrow button and a different stamp just because I felt it went better with the colors of my pictures.
Kept this area pretty much the same... just added stitching all around my LO.  Oh almost forgot that instead of using the PP for my background I used black cardstock from AC once again just because it looks better in my opinion.  It brings out my pictures better.  OK enough of that, on to my PL.

Week 41

 For this week I used dies from MFT and PTI to adorn the main 4"x6" card. Love those little cameras! The journaling cards are from the Simple Stories Snap collection. Love how cheery and bright they are!
I created a LO of my grand daughter Jasmine dressed as a pirate because I just LOVE that face!!!
You can see it HERE 
 I started a LO to record the fun time I had with the girls up north but cannot seem to finish it (cannot find the right paper, ha!  Actually I was trying to recreate the above LO with different papers but keep liking the BG ones on that particular LO...)

Week 42

 This week was a sad one for my family.  My aunt Lourdes passed away.
I stamped the ribbon using MCT breast cancer awareness ribbon stamp and colored it in black.
 Once again I used the Simple Stories Snap collection for my journaling cards and dies from PTI and MFT to cut the numbers, letters and phrase. 

Week 43

This was really very simple.  I just added BG stickers to form the week phrase and numbers, stamped the dates and wrote my journaling entries!  The cards are all ready and pretty like that! (they look like I added washi tape, banners, die cuts, etc)

Week 44

Another very simple and quick to create pages with the Simple Stories cards.  This time I used their Fall collection to go with my Fall theme.

Thirteen days after my aunt Lourders passed away, we lost my uncle Arturo....
not nice!  He was one of my favorite uncle and I have tons of great memories of him :(
 I created a LO and shared it during El Día De Los Muertos HERE

On a cheery note, I love that I got to see these pictures of my soon to be born grandson!!!

And one more!!
Week 45

 Once again a super simple LO to create with this bright and cheerful Simple Stories Snap cards and dies from PTI and a couple of washi stickers!

I have a couple of pictures of the new album I purchased to replace my previous thinner one.
I had purchased several of these green albums to be "prepared" for future years and because I like matchy matchy! but love the new ones even thou they are not green, HA!  I also like red and brown and go with my home decor as well.  I found them at Joann and have purchased a couple of brown ones and a red one and I like them both.  They are pricey but have use a coupon for one and was lucky to walk into the store when they had a 50% off sale.

You can see that the green album is bursting! LOL  and I have not yet included the 12"x12" pouch that holds all the mementos/memorabilia from the year!

That is it for me for now.  I will probably come back and share a few more pages next week and soon will start sharing the pages for this 2013 year.  This year I will try not to add too many 3-D embellishments to keep it "thinner" and will not concentrate so much on a "daily" picture but more like a week in review.

Come back Saturday for a fun hop I am participating with and hosted by my BFF Abby.
