Week 22 is here....

Hi, and thanks for visiting my Week 22.
I received the Studio Calico PL kit for May (I don't subscribe...someone else does but I buy them from her) and loved some of the cards so had to use them (with some cards from previous kits too).
My title card contains 3 of the transparencies from the kit.  Due to the bright colour of the title card they didn't "pop" enough for me, so I backed them with white card stock before sticking them on.  I like the extra colour they add.  The rest of this page came together easilyusing brightly coloured journalling and filler cards from Studio Calico, including using some of the gorgeous alpha stickers.
Lots of people would like to see these alphas available on their own - I am one of them!

The right hand side was just as easy, again sticking to the Studio Calico cards.  Another transparency on the trampoline photo backed with white card stock, and the 'amazing' on the 'Simple & Real' card is also an added transparency.
The 'weekend recap' card has a Studio Calico flair from a previous kit, and alpha stickers from the May kit.
The only non Studio Calico item on this page is the Running flair which is from A Piece of Cake Designs - as soon as I saw this kit I knew I had to have it.  And the colour, while not in line with the orange theme of this spread, goes so well with the new running gear from Active 1 I bought!

Here is the double spread...

21 Today.......

Hi, and thanks for visiting.
I have to say Week 21 passed in a blur.  A lot of that is just the routine of work/life/play but also the extra time for 12WBT is having an impact.
My title card uses another of the Cheery Lynn dies with a Greatest View flair on top. My filler card on the left hand side is made using brown cardstock and some dies from, I think, Studio Calico (....I mixed a few packs from different brands together so can't be sure).  I also used one of the wood veneer frames from Freckled Fawn to draw attention to my two boys NOT playing tennis!

Can you tell by the right hand side I struggled?  Not too many photos so I had to get creative with the flyer from the play I went to.  Another die cut added to a basic Seafoam journal card and a phrase card from Pebbles.

And here is the two page spread...

Thanks for visiting,

Week 20 already?

Hi, and thanks for visiting Week 20.....
This was the first week of the 12WBT program - so there were lots of changes to our routine.....most of which don't make it into photos.....including when I do my PL.  Still working on the adjustments.
My left hand side is focused on my boys school photos.  I know we all think our kids are gorgeous but I love it when it translates to school photos.  The colours in their school uniform helped dictate the colours for this week.....the pale aqua and yellow from Seafoam.
On my title card you can see a yellow lacey doilie....I bought a few different dies from the scrapbook store and spent Monday evening cutting lots of these from my seafoam cardstock stack. Its topped off with a flair from Greatest View.
I also got some wood veneer frames from Freckled fawn this week.  While I couldn't use the frames themselves, they each have words cut out of them, and you get the cut out words.  I used 'Favourite' although I had to take a 'U' from another word to get the Australian spelling.  Also on that card is an Amy Tangerine camera stamp.  Some of my filler cards are from Pebbles Family Ties line.

Lately my boys have been driving me mad on Thursday and Friday mornings. Even though we have over 2 hours to get ready to walk to school (as opposed to 45 minutes on Mon/Tue/Wed) they argue about wanting to play the computer (not allowed before school) and we are still rushing to get out the door.  So this week I used some bribery......they had to be showered, dressed, bags ready and then I made pancakes for breakfast.  It worked......but is a lot of hard work!
Given that I am trying to do a workout every day with 12WBT it was only appropriate that my runners made an appearance.......

And here is the double spread.
