Project Life: Week 23

 This week: We set up Nandini's new room more. We went to Zilker to play. The main event however was the weekend, and that is fine. We went to see the Sound of Music sing-a-long. Twice.  We made costumes and dressed.  We haven't stopped singing the songs since. Random people at the grocery store get to hear me croon Edelweiss whenever the mood strikes Nandini. Avinash made me sing for his friend at a playdate, oh that wasn't awkward.

 A better look at the whole spread.  I have been overexposing my photos a bit lately because my printer tends to make them look too dark otherwise.  What do you think?

First Page: I used a lot of photos.  I saved quite a few pieces of ephemera from the movie for this spread.  A piece of 'curtain fabric' is stapled to the top journaling card.  I also included a couple random pictures of Nandini.  She randomly calls cereal 'EOP'. I don't question it.
I stamped 'it's my jam' on KP's white washi like she suggested and love the way it turned out.  It doesn't completely cover the photo but the stamp is much easier to read.  Funny thing is, that 'it's my jam' stamp is totally Nandini's jam.  She loves to play with it and stamps her hand and mine.  Luckily it is sturdy enough that I don't mind ;)

 Still love these dear Lizzy foam thickers.  A perfect size for PL and very watermelon-y.

I let the theatre's marquee sign in the photo serve as the title, rather than adding my own with stickers. I cut down this vertical photo to fit across two pockets.  The paper is Paislee Press for Studio Calico and the stickers are OA travel girl. I really like using the black and white here.  I think it sort of offsets the colorful marquee and helps balance out all of the color on the rest of the page.

 Second page: How amazing is it that the theatre handed out all of these 3x4 cards at the movie.  This picture of Maria slipped right in!  I had so many other treasures from the show I just took a picture of them all and included that as well. More MME stickers on a random Avinash photo. A gorgeous letterpress card from the Kelly Purkey Project Life kitMust. not. hoard. all. the. beautiful. letterpress.

I cut up the awesome Awesome journaling card from this month's Studio Calico kit.  I also used the letter stickers and heart veneers from there too.

Let me know if you have any questions. I use a lot of digital products, and created a FREE Printables board on Pinterest to keep track (and, I work really hard to make sure that the pins there are all 'live links' and not spam).  Please consider following me on bloglovin' or feedly so you won't miss a post!  I appreciate all of your support.

I am linked up with The Mom Creative for Project Life Tuesday. The PL kits I am using generally are the Studio Calico kit and Midnight kit, with multi-pack page protectors.
