Project Life - Fireworks & Sprinkles

I love working on this project and keeping it out on the coffee table to display our pictures.  Friends and family can page through, but more importantly my kids loooove going through the album together.  I had a lot of fun getting caught up on project life. I did all three weeks in a row so I didn't have to clean up in between each project. This was the 4th of July week, so lots of red.  I'm realizing that most holiday weeks end up with lots of red (Christmas, Valentines also).  I kept the accents in turquoise with a little yellow thrown in for contrast.

I loved this multi-color ruler paper from Crate. I paired it with white foam thickers, a long running favorite.  I finally got a second pack because I had no more As or Ss, but somehow still have Es left.  The journaling is on a trimmed Core Kit grid card (download free here).

Simple pictures of Avi on his bike and Nandini walking around the yard.  Love finding places to put those wooden bikes to use.
I made a pie chart of our home life in PA using my new SC kit stamp.  It mostly involves eating and being swung around in the sheet by my mom.  I put my new KP This is How I Roll stamp to work on this card about Nandini's attempts at walking. 
We could see three different fireworks display at the park near my cousin's house.  I used firecracker star paper, this red number grid and turquoise glitter thickers with some old JBS alpha stickers.
My favorite parts of the instagram collage are the drive-in movie pictures.

Kept this side simple with lots of pictures.  I slipped a red chevron bag behind the instagram of Nandini eating ice cream.
I used the black HeyDay thickers for the cousins title. I added the die cut butterfly for an added touch of red.

A little typewriter journaling on this blue balloon paper for a selfie of me and Ryan. I edged the card in teal chalk ink.  Definitely one of my favorite shades of blue ever. We took the opportunity to have dinner in the city with a friend when we drove there to drop his sister off at the train. 

I used the white space on this photo to add my journaling.  I wrote directly on the picture with my fine tipped sharpie.  The wooden darling and paper bow are just so cute. The bow was a freckled fawn find.

I made this cute summer bucket list for an OSD project and decided to include it as an insert to project life.  It is mostly digi elements cut out with a few buttons and wood veneers. Fun, right?

 Linked up with The Mom Creative for Project Life Tuesday.  So excited to see Kayla Aimee guesting there this week.  I always love her spreads and have missed seeing them of late. The PL kit I am using is the Clementine kit. Thank you so much to everyone in this wonderful community. I love all the feedback and looking at everything people do each week. It definitely keeps me motivated. And, please, link me up to any of your inspiring pages this week as well in the comments!
