Project Life - climb.

I got to crop with my friend Viji this weekend again. Even though we talked a lot with each other and the other ladies at Archivers, I swear I actually got something accomplished. I still had to finish up journaling and a few bits and pieces, but it was fun and relaxing to get together. Plus, I got to use all of her new Ali Edwards stamps! I was in love.  I still need practice stamping on photos but it was fun to try.  I found the stamps to be a little squishier than the acrylic Studio Calico stamps I normally use. We used a dye based ink, but not Staz-On.  I also got to use my new Yearbook and ReadySetGo stuff this week. 
This page came together so quickly because the middle row was already in place from last week, some stationery and the b-side of Everday Eclectic cards.  I made a collage of pictures from school again.  A little one of Nandini meeting Darth Vader snuck in there too. 
I got some new color magic alphas and am already in love.  I stuck a wood veneer word bubble and  the A colored in teal chalk ink.  I repeated the idea below with a picture of Nandini but added a glitter letter instead (what?  there are not many Ns in the pack, and I was being stingy, ha!!) with a remember this banner stamp.

The last kid's lab of the summer.  It was so fun because all the teachers knew Avinash so well by now and he even got to bring along a friend.  I used more wooden word bubbles, with some SC kit stars and a Martha/Avery label.  The textured labels are the best ones. 

Some random pictures of them playing outside on the patio, because, yes, here it is finally cool enough to go outside mid-day! I put a polaroid die cut frame around some journaling in the middle.  Nandini's picture is stamped with delightful.  It looked a little fuzzy, so I traced over the letters with a gold slick writer.  I added a few Amy Tangerine stickers to Avi's picture.

I fussy cut this cute circle graph paper to layer with my photo, a wooden heart and stitched vellum heart.  I just used the sentiments on the new RSGo date stamp here. 

I made a few extra Art Journaling Cards for an etsy order this week, so I used them here.   They are such a nice and colorful addition to the page.  We didn't remember to take a picture together on our anniversary, so I all I have are a few instagrams.  I added some flair and those color magic alphas in red this time.  I am so in love with them.  I have been waiting forever for someone to make a budmo jig font chipboard.
The rest of this page has a lot more pictures from a walkathon we took the kids to this weekend.  I stamped love.love.love on the picture of the boys looking at leaves in a drainhole.  So cute to see the silly things that interest them.  They had a really long conversation about whatever it was, heehee. 
On the bottom photo of Avi walking I stamped you are love and wrote more journaling directly on the photo.  It is a little hard to read here, but looks great in real life.  I use an ultrafine sharpie to write on photos.

We were so proud and amazed watching Avi climb to the top of the rock wall.  I used another polaroid frame from my shop.  I added a fun good for one ride button, even though he took about five or six turns.  I love the quality of the wooden MME embellishments.  It was a really fun week and we have another fun week coming up!

Let me know if you have any questions. Linked up with The Mom Creative for Project Life Tuesday. The PL kit I am using is the Clementine kit, multi-pack page protectors, and grid journaling cards. I love the new 3x4 cardstock pack too.  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. Also, please include a link to your projects below so we can check them out too! Direct post links please, and a link back would be much appreciated.


  1. Wonderful spread for PL. Cannot wait to get my hands on Ready Set Go and Yearbook.

  2. What a great week of picutres and color you have!! I always love your journaling, such great detail on the little everyday things. Do you keep a notebook handy thru the week to remember them?

    The writing/stamping all came out great on the picturs, glad you got to use something new and be with a friend to scrap with. GREAT JOB!!!
