Project Life 2014 >>> February Part 1

I'm continuing to fill a spread in my Project Life album every two weeks and I love the flexibility and time saved by not doing a spread a week.

Lacrosse Tournament /// Grandma's Sugar Cookies /// Gilbert Temple Open House /// Cross Country Banquet /// Babysitting Cousin Vincent

This spread has two insert pages which may seem like I ended up doing a lot more than just one spread, but really it just gave a space to share a few more photos plus a few Valentines.

Valentines /// Phoenix Suns Game /// Cross Country Meet /// Boy Scout Fundraiser

On a Run /// School Valentine Party /// More Suns Game

Success! Another two weeks documented. Love this project!

Playing Suspend

Last month Ward and I went out to dinner with another couple and then back to their house to check on our kids who were all hanging out at their house. We ended up staying and playing Suspend which is a cool balancing game with metal rods and some clever piece placement.  I love that this little moment in time was captured. 

The circle design on the base paper inspired how I used the paper on this page. I used a compass to trace circles to fit fit inside the pattern on the background paper. I love how it creates pops of color on the page!

We've had a very busy month around our place. We are doing a major backyard renovation including a new pool, patio and deck. I love watching the progress take place. The trigger for all of this work is the old pool turned cactus garden by our previous home owner. She had 18 holes drilled in the bottom of the pool so it would drain which also permanently damaged the pool.  Here's a look at the cactus garden pool...

Seriously, who would do this to a pool in Arizona!?!

Here's a look at what our yard looks like today...

The pool has been excavated and a new hole is in the same general location. The long cinderblock wall that divided our yard in half is now gone too and I love how our yard has opened up. Our deck has all new wood and we are working on the roof to the deck. Progress!

Love Vincent

Happy Saturday! Just wanted to stop in and share a layout I created with the just released Scrapbook Circle Portobello Road kit. I really loved playing with this mix of paper and embellishments.

This has two of my favorite Instagram photos from this year with Max and Hannah holding their sweet new nephew. He is such a sweet baby!

On this page I mixed a black and white photo with a color photo and mixed some fonts for the title. I'm loving this mix of products.

Want a look at the Portobello Road kit?  Can you spot the 5 exclusive Scrapbook Circle products?

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
