Week In The Life August 2015 - PART 1

In order for me to just "Do it", get the story down, I've decided to share some of our Week In The Life photos in a random order. For now. This is huge for me to actually get to this point! Hooray ;) If you haven't heard of WITL before, you can take a look at the creators post here, Ali Edwards.

I took ALOT of photos.  I wasn't even going to participate in this project this year, as my photos are still neglected from last year.  But for some reason, last minute, I decided to jump all in! And I am glad that I did. I don't have a plan yet for what I'm going to do with all the photos now that I've taken them but I have been thinking that I may just order a photo book through my iPhoto program and call it done. That or use my WITL kit that I still have from last year.  We'll see, no commitment yet :)

*I haven't organized my photos yet so I'm going to just quickly scroll through a few to choose and include and if/when I get a chance to organize them I'll do an additional post with more photos and words.

We tested out the refrigerator pickled veggies that Rody and I made last weekend. Delicious!

Milly happened to turn 4 on the last day of this years WITL! Here are some photos of her as a brand new 4 year old. This year for her Birthday I turned her room into a little girl room from the nursery room it was. Of course, we went with a horse theme. I still have intentions to paint all the pink white.

 Milly only a few hours old.

 Balloons Milly picked out from the Party store for her party.
 The necklace that I ordered her for her birthday with her initial and Sally's (her favourite horse) initials. From Tom Design on Etsy.

National Scrapbooking Day 2015

This past Saturday was National Scrapbooking Day!! It kind of crept up on me. I had all these big plans for this year. But, soccer started (which is thee most adorable thing ever), birthday invitations happened (CAKE!) so I had to put those big plans on hold. For another year. BUT I did manage to squeeze in one fun and quick layout!! I printed off the challenges that Studio Calico had planned for the day and visited their blog once nap time happened (in between the busy of the day) and decided to play along in their Sketch Challenge. Here is the link to my 30 minute project in my Studio Calico profile. This was for their third challenge, Sketch Challenge. Below is a quick little description. Did you manage to sneak in any scrapping time on #NSD2015?
I picked the first photo on the top of my printed photos pile and decided to challenge myself to use it on an 8.5 x 11 layout. I grabbed a couple scrap papers (one happened to be birds), a PL card that was on my desk, the wood veneer next to my computer, a doily and some enamel stickers from a pile and I had a layout :) I admit, it's not very often for me that all of those elements fall into place. I'm usually sorting through all my goodies looking for the right thing for hours! That's one reason I love Sketch Challenges, it makes me more focused! I think the Studio Calico challenges are open to participate in until May 10th so go make some fun pages! :)
