Project Life: Week 26

 This week: I am a bit behind in blogging this week.  I sprained (possibly broke but never got it X-rayed) it this weekend and now I have to type one-handed.  Lol.
We spent a lot of time at the park or pool this week.  Ryan was working alot and my mom had gone back so we were left to our own devices.  We had a nice playdate at the museum, but I still miss Houston's Children's Museum.   Avinash made sure that we went out for cupcakes to celebrate his Aunt's birthday.  Good memory.
The full spread.

First Side:  I included a picture Avinash took of Nandini in the car, reading her current favorite book. I used Kelly Purkey letter stickers there. The picture itself isn't that great, so I stuck them over top.  You still get the gist.
The camera card with a picture of Nandini swinging is from my Etsy shop.  I wrote down some thoughts I had in the moment when I instagrammed that pic and just wrote them out on the journaling card here.

 I somehow loved how our dirty garage floor looked here.  I stamped Smile with teal chalk ink (because my photo paper doesn't take embossing that well, though that would have been more vibrant) and scattered a few wooden stars.  When I can't figure out where to journal I just write around the edge.

I used an old Clementine Card here.  Have so many of them. The wooden clouds are from Freckled Fawn, it's okay to be literal, right?  The white JS letter stickers are a PL staple for me. I don't know why, but the kids just loved this cloud and Nandini would wonder where it went for days afterwards.

 I added some yellow with watercolor to a SC card.  I just wanted to add a little more color and it was fun to make this standard kit card more unique.

I let the B-side of that lovely dear Lizzy paper I used last week show through here and there too. 

 Second side: I actually held on to a bit of ephemera and had a business card to include.  I just stapled it to a journaling card with a little 'today' tab.  Some of these pictures are repeated from Day in the Life, but the scale is smaller there so I figure it doesn't hurt to see some of them larger. 

This is a screen cap from a birthday video we sent Ryan's sister.  I just love that Avi blew her a kiss (with a mouthful of cupcake, of course!)  I used a Studio Calico PL card, with another favorite letter sticker - white foam Amy Tangerine.  

Avi was so happy to see this photo of his crayons.  He got out his pack and laid out the same crayons on top of the picture.  I love that this album makes him feel validated.
I added text (script font) before printing and used a die cut I made from another Studio Calico kit paper.

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.  Let me know if you have any questions.  Thanks for visiting, I appreciate all of your support.  Please, leave your links to any PL pages in the comments so we can check them out too.

I'm pretty excited that Two Peas is already getting new CHA collections in stock.  These are my two favorite new lines so far:
