Project Life: Whale in a water!

This week: We visited the Wildflower Center for one of the last late night summer programs.  So crazy that it is still 100 degrees out but all these summer things are ending.  It rained, which is totally PL worthy here.  We went to a Jedi Knight 'training session' at the park with all the nerds and geeks.  Of course we made a friend, who we still hang out with :)  And, over the weekend we spent one day at Sea World.  The character block party was a huge highlight, as was getting splashed by Shamu.  We talk about it daily (almost a month later).  I also wrote about some of the songs we are singing lately.

 The full spread.

 First Page:  I bought a physical Midnight Core Kit and find myself reaching for it whenever I need filler cards or something to mat a photo I printed too small.  The grey striped card behind the rain photo is Midnight kit.  I also used my Studio Calico cards a lot this week. 
I turned a 4x6 pocket into a mini layout, with two mini photos, a journaling card, washi tape and some cork thickers.  I mostly just love the way Avi charge Ryan across the hill with his light saber. 

I still love these old metallic Hardcover thickers, using them here in silver.   I like to go back to my spread after I'm done and add little bits, esp wood veneers like this little flower.

I used a BG frame to highlight this photo.  The grey alpha are from my KP kit.  

Ryan loved this little card paired with the snow cone photo.  The big flair is another KP kit item

 Second Side: KP and SC kit cards.  A few of the new Amy Tangerine vellum stickers.  I cut around the ampersand to slip in the Grover photo. Most of us were pretty shocked to get soaked by Shamu but Nandini loved it.  She seems to think that Shamu was trying to splash her personally and was totally in awe through the whole show. 

I included this random photo of a bee.  Turns out it was all Ryan and Avi really remembered about getting snow cones anyway.  I popped a sticker on top of a little camera paper clip.  A little change from my usual wood camera.  

I have resisted this nautical stamp set from Kelly Purkey for a long time, but I recently saw it in action at a friend's place and decided that I needed it, lol.  I used the silver ink from this month's KP PL kit and regular grey dye ink together.  Another simple stories sticker.  I really want to finish a pack of stickers but I think I need to pick up the pace and use all the leftovers in one place now ;)

I am linked up with The Mom Creative for Project Life Tuesday. The PL kits I am using generally are the Studio Calico kit, Kelly Purkey 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.

    1. Thank you! I didn't even realize that I had included silver in several places until reading through the comments. It was a fun color to play with :)

  5. I really love how you manage to add so many interesting layers in your work and still manage to tell your stories beautifully. It's quite the art.

  6. Lots and lots of work put in here... very beautiful colourful work Nirupama x
