The only picture not taken at their place, is the annual photo of ER by the big lilac bushes next to our deck. They are so gorgeous! I spied a little bee doing his thing while out there, love the close up detail of the lilacs. LB was fussy so no picture of him with the bushes this year, which is okay. We didn't move into our house until after ER was a year old so my plan is to start the same year I started collecting them with her.
Let's see now, credits...the "Document Life" I popped the dates on is from Crystal Wilkerson, so is the 3X4 polka dot paper. Camera from Take Note by WM Squared Designs and digital lable by Chelle's Creations.
The rest of the week was busy too. We had our big cookie sale reward party for our Daisy troop at a local bounce place. A friend from school came over; we walked back to our home together, something the girls thought was extra special. Then we had a four day weekend for Memorial Day and on Friday a friend came and spent the day, because her mom's school district was still in session. That was big fun with a fashion show, Barbies, sprinkler, sidewalk chalk, you name it and we did it!
On Saturday it was back to the Grand's again. My mom helped me pick out flowers for our front walk and porch. I didn't used to like petunias all that much, until I realized they were pretty hardy growers for people with brown thumbs like moi! Now they are practically the only things I buy.
Lots more digi-hybrid goodness this week. "This is the Good Life" is Crystal again, with the addition of a journaling circle. The Daisy outing in the top left, uses a Facebook freebie from Digital Design Essentials. As of this posting, it's still available for a "Like" on Facebook. It coordinates with the Live Free: Love Life freebies from Miss Tina that a lot of Project Lifers use. If you dabble in digi I suggest you snag it while you can.
Speaking of those freebies from Miss Tina, the two other journaling cards use portions of the journaling cards. I used the striped one along with the free Blank Lined 3X4 Journal Card from Melissa at A Vegas Girl at Heart to make the card in the bottom right about our day with my parents.
Now for a few questions for all the Project Lifers out there is...do you try to progress from the left side to the right in a chronological order when placing your photos for the week? Or do you just lay out your photos in a manner that is pleasing to your eyes? Do you try to keep things in any kind of order or do you just figure that if it happened that week all that matters is that it's on there somewhere. Perhaps it's not as important to keep track of what day a particular thing happned? While I know there is no right or wrong, I am curious to see what works for other participants! Maybe this need for order is my Type A personality showing?
