Project Life - In Aruba

This week's project life was all about our:

Technically, I was only there for half the week and Ryan even less, but it still dominated the spread.  I though I would do just one page with an enlargement, but I had too many photos I wanted to include.  I got back to Texas last night and was three weeks behind.  I am eager to get back on track. I currently have this week totally finished and the next week partly done. 

I had already edited and sent my pictures to be printed while at my parents house.  That helped a lot

The full spread.  I pulled a lot of AC's new Shoreline collection.  The bright colors just scream Caribbean and beach. Also, lots of journaling on label stickers and some random die cuts.

I love that picture Ryan took at the top of the bride and groom.  I used these letter stickers and kept using them throughout my spread.  Each pack has two different colors and plenty of vowels.  I felt pretty pleased for getting some sort of continuity on my spread.  I let my die cut from last week peek through.
I used this paper to hold my some journaling. I punched the lazy days flamingo circle from this page.  How perfect for this vacation!  There were flamingos literally running all over the beach there. I used some Heidi Swapp stamps too, very versatile.  Love the handwriting flourish.

 This 'blue whale' paper holds a week in review post it (from Freckled Fawn). Layered with a little target washi, BG flair and wood veneer plane

I made my little jetsetter card with some Target stationery and my typewriter.  I wanted to keep it simple, but ended up adding turquoise washi and a vintage map sticker (of Cuba? close enough).

So, yeah, this week is mostly me and my friends.  I only included one picture of Ryan and six of me with Rachel, plus more with the rest of our college friends.  Heehee.

I ordered this 6x8 enlargement. Way cheaper than 8x10 and perfect for design A pages.  More shoreline with these thickers on top.  Plus, a little wood boat.  I mean, how often am I going to get to use those? I wish I had cropped this photo a little differently so that my forehead wasn't in three different frames.  Hopefully those big thickers distract from it.

This old pink paislee die cut seemed to match the flamingos perfectly.

 These delights stickers were also used on both sides of the spread (and last week).  I can never get my homemade ones to stay together, and I love these vibrant colors. The paper is the B-side of this from the other side.  Not sure if my pun title makes sense, but I had to write about how good the food was.

Wow, a kid-free week.  I never would have thought it was possible!

 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! And, I totally need fourth of July inspiration.  That little section is what's tripping me up right now.


  1. Beautiful spread for the week!!!

  2. What great pages.
    I like how you cut up the photos in the page protectors to be able to keep the full sized photos.

  3. Fabulous pages! Looks like a super fun trip. Very pretty dresses! You hard working Moms all deserve a kid free week once in awhile! :)

  4. So jealous, it'll be a year or so before I get some kid-free time. I love your PL pages, the pics are all so fun!

  5. I love your spread! The enlarged photos are so fun :)

  6. How fun! Love the products you used to embellish!! :)

  7. So cute! I love that patterned paper journaling block and how it "oozes" into the next section - so cool!

    And yay for kid-free vacation!!! This gives me hope for our future with 2 kids :D
