Project Life (May 16~May 22)

Hey There! First of all: I am loving Project Life Tuesday. It really is helping me stay on track (or close to it)!! I also love to see all of the other ladies ideas and ways of doing things - it is a truly awesome community of women.

Second of all, -- HERE -- is a link for my post from last week since we didn't link up :) 

Comments and suggestions are not only loved but requested!!! Let me know what you think or if you have a better idea .. something you are doing - or just to say "hi"! I love to know you swung by!

Okay, so to start - I DO have album pictures ... two weeks in a row (a small miracle). I always appreciate when people put their album up so I can see their actual book ideas, but now I appreciate it even more because I'm realizing how seriously difficult it is to have done in time!! ;)  

So, away we go!!
I am really loving the rounded corners look to match all the paper and journaling cards.. what do you think?

 I really love the Sharpies that I'm using to highlight things and make headings.

 Here's a long journaler by Ali Edwards which I think is totally awesome - details from my first psychic reading (lol) that I don't want to forget!

 I didn't take a picture of my psychic reading because it was nerve racking enough ... so here's the chicks card with another Ali Edwards overlay.  See? They aren't just for pictures!

 Monday I finally committed to going to Rally! Premier Designs Jewelry has a conference in Fort Worth Texas  in July ... super nervous but can't wait! :)

Tuesday Mom and I took the kids on a walk around the block. They needed to blow off some steam. This walk turned into a nature walk - it was super fun. Glad I brought the camera! For more click here.

 Wednesday Cullen would not stop tickling my feet in the kitchen - this boy is TOO FUNNY!

Thursday I took a pic of our lilacs. We have tons and tons of lilacs around our house and when they finally bloom ... it was worth the wait! Check out my other blog post just about our lilacs!

Friday I did the psychic reading (business card instead of picture today)

Saturday I was lucky enough to be able to head out to Grand Rapids! I hung out with Bryce, Syd and Sara all day. After Jimmy Johns, Target and a few hours in the office - we got a ton of what we call "geek/nerd talk" out. I LOVED it! :) We are all into Project Life, PhotoShop, Blogger, Pinterest .. you know ...  

Sunday Dad put up our American Flag. GOD BLESS AMERICA!! Counting the days until Jimmy is finally on the soil of the USA! :)

  1. Hi Tara! Love your project life....it's so much fun seeing others projects. I love the picture you took of the flag.

    I love Ali's long journaler - I've got to figure out how to do that. I don't have photoshop - I use picasa and picnik....don't know if I can do that in either.

    I'm a follower now - and I look forward to seeing more of your PL! :-)

  2. Looks great! I did pictures of the album spread last year, but I haven't done it this year. I may have to start again because it is fun to see the completed pages!

    I LOVE your blog design! It's darling! Did you do it yourself?

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! Sadly I was driving when I took the picture. I'm really good at doing that.

  3. Hi Tara, your week looks good in the album. I love the added the touches and long journals you added. I need to learn how to do that. The flag is always a favorite of mine and we have lilac bushes on the side of my kitchen and the smell wonderful with the windows open. Too bad they only last a couple weeks though. Great job on rounding your corners, I always forget so decided not to worry about it. Have a good week and thanks for stopping by my blog.
    p.s. it is fun to see the whole album for me too, every week is more amazing and I love seeing others.

  4. So jealous of your lilacs! They are gorgeous!!

    You take great photos, I love seeing them!
