Last week was full of those langorous almost summer days that just run together. The only thing on our schedule was Avi's swimming lessons in the mornings. It was hot out and honestly, we stayed home a lot and watched a lot of TV. Ryan went out of town for a few days, which is probably when we went out the most because suddenly sitting at home with two stir crazy kids was no longer an option.
I forgot to include his little swimming progress report and certificate (though, seriously? does he need an award for completing 8 swim lessons?). Add to that a lot of other projects in the works and not a lot of pictures taken. So, I ended up with a one page spread.
Still it was fun. I used a lot of instagrams and 'rainbow' pictures edited on my phone with a free app (camera 360?). It's not great, but I wanted to play with some different filters (ok...Avi wanted to play with them more than me). I made some quick lists about my kids. Stuff that is hard to find a place for, but stuff that I want to remember (and find hilarious to look back on). I used some washi and lots of different stickers. I inked the edges of patterned paper I cut into cards with a contrasting color (instead of my usual vintage photo brown). Loved the finished but funky look it gives.
Studio Calico polaroid paper to matte this picture. It is the perfect size for a 2x2 (cut from a collage of 6 pictures printed on a 4x6).
I love these little Elle's studio circles, I added a circle instagram stamp and a circle die cut. These little alpha stickers in teal are perfect for tiny project life titles. I added a little wooden car because of the driving montage. See? it's all topical ;)
bling on an Amy Tangerine tag. I have so many extra numbers, trying to use them up for dates when I remember. Used this old Studio Calico sticker for the title, slips into the pocket much more easily than thickers.
'top ten' list for each of them. One about Nandini's signs of affection and one about Avi's naptime excuses, ha!
OA 'fly a kite' sticker and added the flying high on top.
A little bit of glitter for the thickers. The stamp is from a new class at Studio Calico.
Linked up with The Mom Creative for Project Life Tuesday. The PL kit I am using is the Clementine kit.
