Good morning, everyone! Today I am linking up again with The Mom Creative. I was prepared today to finally catch back up and have weeks 35 and 36, but for some reason Costco printed my photos about 4 hours later than they said they would, so they were not ready when my husband picked up the rest of the photos 😦 However, I did get week 35 finished – and please excuse the dark photos. The last couple of photo orders have been really dark (and I haven’t adjusted anything on my end). Anyway, here goes:
This week I mainly just used the blues and greens that are in the week/date card. I added a little purple here and there (mostly ink) because of the purple in my daughter’s shirt the first day of school. I have a set of school-themed stamps that I got half off at HL or M’s that I use with the school scrapbooking project I do, so I thought it would be a good tie-in to use something from that set on my date card:
The top of the journaling block needed something so I pulled that swirly thing stamp off that same school set and just did a couple across the top. I had a small photo taken on my phone (the photos are very poor quality) and forgot to leave room in my journaling to put it with the day it was taken, so I added it to the bottom, but needed a way to balance it out. The sticker set I used is actually someone else’s throw away. The crop that a friend of mine hosts once a month has a box where you can put stuff you aren’t going to use anymore. It’s free to whomever wants it (and is how I get a lot of the paper I use for the school scrapbook project). I found this set of green glossy stickers that were mostly arrows and a few symbols. I thought they might work with my PL and if not, my girls would have fun using them. Glad I picked them up!
This week was the first day of school for my girls. Natalie is the one in the neon green striped shirt; she is a third grader this year. Sydney is the one in the purple and navy striped shirt and she is a big first grader this year. I always take a full length shot, a backpack shot (them facing away and looking over their shoulder) and then close ups. Once we get to school, I hang back for a minute and get a photo of the girls holding daddy’s hand walking in. I’ve done that one every single year and will continue for as long as they will let me 🙂
By Saturday I was so exhausted, I didn’t take any photos. We spent our day just laying around watching movies/playing games and all that. To fill the spot I took the bread sleeve that I used to make french toast casserole for the following morning’s breakfast. I’ve tried a couple of different versions of the recipe and the one I liked the best uses Pepperidge Farm bread. Well, grocery shopping Friday night, my oldest spotted the new seasonal PF bread in apple-something and Pumpkin Spice – oh my! So that is what I used to make a yummy breakfast. You prep it the night before and then in the morning pop it in the oven.
Thanks for coming by!
