Project Life: Week 17

My week 17 layouts for Project Life have been completed for a while but I find the whole process of taking pictures of them tedious!  LOL!  A first world problem, huh?  I'm complaining!  wah, wah, wah!
Seriously once I get the cards in their pockets I don't like removing them.  I have tried to take photos through the protectors but always get such a glare despite my many attempts.  So I take them out of the pockets and photograph and then painstakingly put them back in!  It's not so bad when the cards go in the front side of the page protector but when they go in the back side...well, it gets tedious to me.  I read where someone asked Becky Higgins if they might start putting inserts on both sides and she replied it would be "too expensive".  Oh well...I love the completed pages so I just need to stop my whining.
Ok, There you go.

Here is the left side for Week 17....oh and I used the papers and trims and buttons from the Close to Heart pack that I did my insert page with...seen HERE and several cards for the last couple of posts. 

I opted to use one of the 3x4 slots as the "week" card for this layout.  I made my card in my Silhouette software and cut it out with my Cameo.  I added the word memories from a design purchased in the Silhouette online store.  I added a rub-on and some trim and a dot of bling to finish it.

This card was also cut from a design purchased in the Silhouette store.  I backed it with some paper, stamped the lines with an old Stampin' Up journaling stamp I have and added some buttons.
The card below was also cut with my Cameo and then I added a canvas circle from Maya Art that I inked up with some Distress Ink.  I added a little crocheted flower and a button.  I love the way it turned out!
And here is the right side:

We went to a beautiful wedding so I had to add some of those photos!  And a day at the park with my granddaughter gave me some cute pictures to use. 
Another Silhouette cut and embellished with some rub-ons and white pen work.
And oh yes...another Silhouette cut.  LOL...can you tell my Silhouette has been invaluable with my Project Life?   And thanks again, Sheryl and Phil for the awesome cradle for the children!

 And lastly...I love this picture of Taylor peeking out from the tube on the playground....and I love the quote (which is a Rub-on):

So true....

Loving Project Life....loving life...;)

Happy Crafting!
