Project Life 2012: July 28 - August 3

I'm dreadfully behind in sharing my 2012 Project Life pages!  I was sick the first week in October and feel like I'm still playing catch up in all areas of my life.  The good news, Project Life-wise for me is that I'm getting really close to being current in my actual album and almost have through October done.  November has been pretty easy for me to stay on top of because I'm also doing 30 Days of Thankful
Back at the end of July, we had just had a few weeks of birthday extravaganza, with a quick trip (share here and here) and a family party for both of our July birthdays, which I have yet to share.  This spread is for the week following all that craziness and was a little more laid back, but most of our summers are pretty busy. 

The little guy's birthday was actually on the 29th but since we'd just had the big party we didn't do too much on his actual day other than take both kids to Barnes and Noble where we got them a cafe treat.  We also had a play date and met up with friends in from TX.  There is a little bit about it at the bottom right but I also did a full page spread in our PL album immediately following this one.
There was one insert this week, that I planned for and made sure I took enough pictures to fill.  I wanted to make sure I did something special that featured the little guy during his birthday week.
This is the backside of the insert.  It has some MAMBI cards in it.
I embellished the empty area of this photo with a fun wood word bubble.
The second half of this spread is about our 13th wedding anniversary dinner, done a little early, at the beginning of the month.  I didn't feel like lugging around my big camera so the pictures from the meal are all from my cell phone and at first I didn't really have enough to fill a whole half page.
But I decided to add some WRMK cards to fill it out.  Normally, my pages are filled with photos and words, without much room for filler cards so it was kind of fun to play around with this one.  I added some black AC Thickers on top with our initials.
This die cut tag is Dear Lizzie, on top of a WRMK chevron card with some washi on both sides to fill it in.  I added a ticket stub from our oh so romantic movie and a Dear Lizzie die cut.
At the bottom of the spread I added a filler card that I tried adding fancy writing to, that I don't like, but am going to keep anyway, and in the other pocket is the simple card I made for Brad.
