Project Life: Week 24

My friend, Cyndi, went to  Salt Lake City recently and brought me back a stack of journaling cards from Pebbles in My of the first stand alone scrapbooking stores.  I visited there in 2000 and have a scrapbook page somewhere devoted to it with a picture of the nicest young ladies who worked in the store.  Anyway, she brought me back a little tablet of journaling cards that I wanted to use right away so used them for Project Life this past week.

Gosh....I'm only 2 weeks from the halfway year mark!  Wow.  Having to go to volume 2 as my book is so fat! :)  See?

Here is the left side:
Very simple....a few stamped arrows, some stickers and some washi tape and once again I used a 4x6 template from The Lily Pad.

David played in a little soccer camp this week and I got a bunch of photos to use.  The templates are so helpful in getting lots of photos on your pages.  I like that.  It does take a bit of time to drop the photos into Photoshop or Photoshop Elements (which is what I use) but it is well worth that extra time, I think. 

We also went to the pool...I have a nifty little Fujifilm waterproof camera so I snap away and don't worry about damaging a phone or other camera.  And it takes surprisingly good photos.

I added some stickers to the top right journaling card to make sure girls were represented, too! Those stickers were so old I don't even have a clue where they came from but they were unearthed when we excavated the Great Scrapbooking Room in the Cleanup of 2013.  Despite Carbon 12 testing local archaeologists were unable to date them. Certainly pre 2005...

The photo below was done with a Lilypad template and some word art from CZ Design Cheeky Overlays.   The "Can't Get Enough of You" stamp is from the Simon Says Stamp Loving Words set that also has metal die talk bubbles. 

And that's it for today....all caught up...and now it's just about time to start sorting through pictures for this week!

Happy Crafting!!!


  1. Love it! I love arrows and dots. Your grandkids will love seeing all the photos of themselves! =)

  2. I'm so lovin' the soccer photos. They bring back such wonderful memories of when daughter was younger & played soccer. I also like that I got to meet your grandchildren, even for the short time it was when we were in FL for my older sister's daughter's wedding last Aug, and can see your grandchildren grow up virtually.
