This is our pre-Valentines Week, but I decided to make it a little over the top so I could continue a red hearts theme across a few spreads. Love all the love.
It also includes clothing tags from both me and Nandini, a little card from a tissue box I mailed Avinash and Nandini, a flashcard, stickers from the valentines we made, and some papers sent home from pre-school.
It is funny how the littlest things make them so happy. I signed them up for a free box of tissue from kleenex with the attached message "Better catch your nose it is running! Love, Mom". He LOVED it, haha.
It also includes our dinner out at Uchi, a playdate and special friends' birthday party so there are a few inserts.
Little tag from Elle's studio, Crate Paper speech bubble, an Ormolu note fabric swatch and ampersand. Over this patterned paper. Aqua dear lizzy and red pebbles letters. The grey are old Sassafrass.
October Afternoon letter stickers for these shots of Avinash playing at Nisha's little gym's party.
It is so cute that his teachers wrote down this story Avi told at school. He and Ryan tell stories before bedtime every night now. Avinash is a big fan of happy endings, so he often changes them to suit his taste. I stamped story time (on sale!) and punched out hearts from scraps of paper. The die cut is Amy Tangerine.
Love this starOA paper, it is secretly wonderful because it is the B-side, I use it all the time. Elle's studio pennants and lil snippets. Hearts confetti with a Martha Stewart border punch. More Amy Tangerine die cuts. Chipboard Jenni Bowlin heart. The 10 of hearts card is from the Clementine kit.
I hand painted that half heart using Overdue Mr. Huey. I just unscrewed the cap and used the plastic straw in the bottle as my 'brush'. Worked really well for more saturated color than one gets with misting.
I printed my photos at home this week again. I created collages in Picasa so I could fit lots of pictures in again.
Linked up with The Mom Creative and One Happy Mama for Project Life Tuesday. And, please, link me up to any of your inspiring pages this week as well in the comments!
I also want to say thank you for all of the uplifting comments and encouragment I've been getting here lately. I think Jessica has created a really vibrant special community with this weekly link up. I love all the ideas, but more than that, it has kept me motivated and excited about Project Life. Completing a week gives me a great feeling of accomplishment and relaxation. Time passes so quickly and it helps knowing that I am recording a lot of little snippets. I am not recording everything, no where near. But I think over the year I will hit lots of different things, and create a snapshot of their lives, our lives. That is what keeps me going.
