During our long holiday weekend, we went for our first bike ride of the season. The weather has still been very warm, you would think it was Spring. They say everything will change this weekend, and we may even see some snow here in the valley.
Jake has been loving scouts and visited the fire station a few weeks ago. I used the Project Life App to make a cute card for his scrapbook. I've been trying to get all of my boys scrapbooks up to date and current. I just need to snag a few memory boxes and I'll be good to go. The older boys books are busting at the seams and I'll be giving them their books very soon *sniff *sniff.
We celebrated an early Sweetheart's Valentine Day at Boondock's. Jake was so excited to have some one on one time with his big brother. We ran around like lunatics the entire four hours---laser tag, bowling, video games. So much fun :)
On Valentine's Day we changed it up a little. Jake had a birthday party late that afternoon---so we went on a mini date. We NEVER get those. We got a pretzel, churro and drink at Sam's. Last of the big spenders.....I know. We even picked each other out a 99 cent card (right in front of each other). Something very cheesy of course. Then we grabbed a king size candy bar for each other. That was our sweetheart gifts.
We laughed about it all night. Why after all these years of heart shape boxes of candies, expensive dinners, jewelry, flowers---did we like this year the very best?
Life is kinda funny like that.
We snuck in a visit to my moms and gave her a Valentine card as big as her. She thought that was great.
It's just the little things you know. They just look pretty big.
Have an Amazing weekend full of your favorite things!
Another beautiful Fall day. These photos were taken over the long holiday weekend. We couldn't have asked for a better day for biking. We biked a few hours and then headed home to chicken noodle soup and corn bread. I made everything early afternoon because I knew we had a long adventure ahead and we would be starving.
I used the Project Life App and I had my weekend scrapbook all finished, within just a few minutes. I love that thing! So much fun. So as far as my system, for Project Life, this is what I do. I'm usually a month or so behind because I like to wait for the month to pass. That way I can view all the weekly photos and see what I have to work with in my Studio Calico Kit. That's really my only splurge with scrapbooking and the occasional app or two. I will most likely use my layouts I create as a reference. This way I can use my kit, embellishments and cards I have on hand. I love digital, but hybrid is the way to go for me. I'm not a patient person, so these days I print all of my layouts 4x6, 6x8, 8x8, and 12x12 at home.
Here's a few examples of what I'll be working with.
