Project Life – Week 5 (& another .png freebie)

FINALLY! I’ve gotten a few minutes to finish up my spread and get it posted on my blog. It’s a GREAT thing I am able to keep my wits about not being “behind” – this “just” week 5. I LOVED working on this layout because I was able to use my first Studio Calico Project Life kit. LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. The cards are gorgeous and all the little bits and pieces are great.

We had a little bit of snow this week and Mike and Em had a BLAST playing in the snow. I just love the sound of her laughter – it always takes me to a happy place…and she laughed ALOT as she tried to “get” daddy with the snowballs…and when he buried her face in it. They also spent quite a bit of time “staging” this little PSA “What Happens When Barbie Texts” (bottom right corner). They dug into my stash (both from the kitchen AND craft room) to put it all together. Fun times.

Here’s the .png file this week if you’d like to download it – click here.

In addition to the Studio Calico February kit, I used some Little Yellow Bicycle papers and some stickers from My Mind’s Eye – (these ROCK), some CTMH stamps and inks and some really old Q&Co. snowflake felt stickers. I also grabbed my Pitt Big Brush markers and my Studio Calico journal pen and went to town on some of the journal cards.

One of my “go-to” techniques is to write my journaling and grab colored pencils and “highlight” random words as I did on this journal card here:

Lastly, on this journal card (from the Feb. kit) I added a SC wooden arrow and that little heart flag is actually cut off some packaging from the kit. That space needed a little something – and I thought that little heart sticker would do the trick. 🙂

Hope you have a FAB week and thanks for stopping by. If you use any of my downloads – I’d love to see what you do with them. You can use them as a cut file – or as an overlay in Photoshop~

My Silly Girl

We go to Huber’s every Fall — and this year Mike snapped these pictures of me and Emily while we were enjoying a treat of apple cider slushies. I hadn’t scrapped the photos because I was waiting to find just the right papers. Lucky me, Little Yellow Bicycle came out with an awesome line, Paradise that fit the bill. LOOOOVEE these papers !

Thanks for stopping by.

Little Yellow Bicycle goodness 🙂
