Project Life, Week 10

week10
 
This is a page that definitely reflected the week color wise.  It rained and rained and rained this week.  But all that rain didn't stop us!  This is also one of the pages I used to submit to Freckled Fawn's creative team call.  It would be cool if they picked me, but I bet they got hundreds of amazing submissions so I don't want to get any hopes up.  I had to try though!

Project Life, Week 9

week9a
 
Ok, please don't laugh.  I know I'm posting week nine and it's October.  I'm also realizing that I never even posted week 8!  I'll have to do that later.  Anyways, this page documented a week that was a bit stressful.  It's when we found out our landlord wanted to sell their house and gave us a very short time to move out.  It's just taken me some time to get over the bitterness.  Of course a lot of good happened this week as well.

It's a week that I took lots of photos, so I added a half page to get them all in.  I even had to make a little pull out to include a few more photos.  I used up a lot of old stuff so that made me excited.  That was my goal when I started this.

Scrapbooking, Pumpkin Patch 2014

pumpkinpatch2014b
 
This was the layout that was supposed to be for this sketch challenge on the Memory Nest.  Sometimes things just get a little mixed up.  It's a cute page so that's all that matters in the end!
 
I love making fall pages.  They are my favorite to scrap.  I always get such wonderful photos this time of year. It's so tempting to use orange paper or other fall colors, but I decided to try and go for a different color scheme this year.  I'm really loving the blue and purple with the orange.  The biggest challenge was finding purple.  I don't have much purple paper and couldn't find any embellishments other than some confetti and sequence!  I definitely need to build up my purple stash!

Scrapbooking, Wild Thing

Ok, I think I might be losing my mind.  I have so many projects to work on and things to do.  I need more hours in a day!  It doesn't help that I gave up and just went to bed at 9:30 and slept till 8am!  That NEVER happens.  Nobody woke me up in the middle of the night and I had no crazy dreams or anything!   It was a solid long night of sleep and boy did I need it.  Hopefully, I will have the energy to finish making birthday presents and can get a start on Halloween costumes.  I already caved in and just bought some curtains for our house instead of making some.

I have managed to get a little bit of scrapbooking in.  Here is my make it Monday layout for the Memory Nest.   My little guy is becoming such a character.  He LOVES those tigers in the photo.  He crawls all over the house with them.  Somehow, they always find their way under my feet.  The painted lines behind the photo are supposed to be tiger stripes.  At first I made them a bit to short, so you couldn't see them when I started layering stuff on top, so I had to go back and re paint them. I took this photo in the early morning.  The sun was just bursting into our house.  The fall brings lots of morning fog out here in Seattle, so sunny mornings are a rare treat this time of year.
