Project Life | Weeks 31-35

I decided to quickly share my Project Life pages for 2012 a month at a time in the next few days since I have already started the 2013 album!  This is exciting! more exciting is the fact that when my daughter came over for the holidays, she got to see it in person and got emotional and happy to see it in person.  Even my SIL liked it!

OK on to week 31 which includes the end of July and the beginning of August.
 This was another super exciting Summer week on board a Carnival cruise to México, Honduras and Belize with my daughter and grand daughters!
 For this week I used the Simple Stories Snap collection! love it that it's so bright and cheery!
 I made my own button/tin pin
 Used some BG stickers for the week 31 and purposely stamped the date several times to make it look messy! really!
I used several stamps from different stamp sets (I did not keep track of them but some are from Studio Calico, Hampton Art...I think...)

Week 32
This week starts with us debarking the ship and spending the day in New Orleans.  We had a hotel reserved so we can spend the night and the next day sightseeing, but decided to just take a nap and head back home later that evening.  Let me just say that the French Quarters was just not child friendly/proofed!
 I flew back home on Tuesday and back to the busiest time of the year for me at work! in addition to some incredibly hot days!

 It was super exciting to watch México win its first Soccer Gold Medal!!  Above you can see that I have cut and added a see thru card using my Cameo.
 Most of the journal cards I used here are from the SS Snap collection except the green one above.  It is an Echo Park journal card.
For my title card I used BG Wandered paper and stapled the letter and number stickers.

Weeks 33-35

As I mentioned above I went back to work!! And for me the start of a school year (and the end) are the busiest times so I ended up combining 3 weeks into one!  Not only was it busy for me, but for my daughter who is a teacher to 3rd graders and started a new job!  The result? less pictures!  So I combined three (3) weeks into one.  This is real life! so this SS Snap card was just perfect for my title.

It is getting harder to take pictures since my album is so thick, but just LOVE it!!

The above sticker and journal entry is way too funny to me and my daughter... even my SIL laughed when he read it!  You see, he has a thing for the neighbors parking in front of his house!  LOL  In his defense, they party and leave glass bottles behind.....etc.

Well, this sums up the end of July and the month of August.  I will be back soon, maybe even tomorrow to share the pages for the month of September and hopefully by the end of the week I will be done sharing October and November's pages so I can get started with 2013!

Hopefully this has inspired at least one of you to start documenting your life in one way or another!  You should have seen my daughter when she first saw this album!! and I can only imagine how I would feel if my Mom or Grandmother would have left me something remotely similar... sadly, nothing!
