Project Life Week 19

Welcome to week Nineteen of my 2012 Project Life Album. I know that many of you are missing my Video overviews and I have to apologize....I'm missing them too.... my tripod broke.... and I'm working on replacing it... I've tried to do it without the tripod....but I shake really bad.... and let me just tell you that you would just be so annoyed you would want to stop watching the video after a few seconds....so here is my promise to you.... when I get my tripod I will go back and cover the missed weeks... so don't you worry.... you will get to see them....and hear my voice....

But for now here are still shots.... as always if you have questions, feel free to email me..... but this week I may be slow to respond because we are heading out on vacation.... I get to see my family!!! I haven't seen them since 2010.... and I'm ridiculously excited... plus my husband is going and he has never been to the Atlantic ocean.... In my daughter's words.... "daddy, you don't have to wear a wetsuit the water it's warm....i'm not kidding you.... your gonna love it there!"

Overview of Week Nineteen
Close up of the first part of the week. I received my stamps from Elise this week(By the way her stamp shop is closing June 30 if you want to order any of them go now and place your order!!!!) ... I was just a little excited (hehe) so of course I included a picture of those little gems. I loved her business card....so it went smack dab on one of the Clementine journaling cards in one of the slots... and then in the other slot placed a picture of my girls playing with their train set. The final slot on this page included journaling on one of the Clementine cards with arrow stickers pointing to the revelant pictures. 
I used one of Cathy Z's 4x6's Journaler's to document my experience about doing a guest post for The Mom Creative for her Project Life Tuesday Series.....so very cool for me....
Layered Journal Cards No. 01
C-Line - Memory Book - Page Protectors - Flip Pockets - Holds 4 x 6 Photos - 6 Pack
Photo Pocket Pages - Design E
I trimmed Design Becky Higgins Photo Pocket Design E in half and enlarged 2 instagram photos of my  little girls. My oldest daughter is giving the younger one tips on riding her bike. It was a tender moment and it melted my heart. Violet has been working hard to keep up with Lilykate on her bike and on this day she finally got the hang of it. I love how the enlarged pictures really draws focus to this heartfelt and important moment that the girls probably won't remember, but they will have this snapshot to look back on....
I added a tab to the page and the stitched it on with my sewing machine, but you could always just attach it with adhesive and packing tape. Or try using washi tape.... it does double the work for you..... it acts as an adhesive and with the look of a pattern paper on it but more transparent...  On the tab I added a stamp it say, "moments cherished". The stamp is from Ali Edward's December Daily stamp set... one of my most favorite stamp sets because of their size, small and petite, perfect for tabs. I love how it turned out.
On the back, two more instagram shots... our new to us record player and a "Vinyl".
Now are living room dance parties are even more fun now!! Love me some Black Keys!!!
Second part of the week. Normal everyday life shots. Matt was working on Mother's day. So we got the camera remote out and I let the girls go crazy with it....the bottom photo is my favorite shot.... them hugging me....so proud of the Peyton Manning jersey they bought for me.... even if he didn't come to play for the Arizona Cardinals.
Project Life is designed to SIMPLIFY the memory keeping process... don't over think it. You make the rules....it's your album....there are no Project Life Album Police. Make it work for you, so you can be successful!
