project life | week 5

Feb 7, 2012

I finally finished my pages before the end of the night, I was up until 12:30 but it was no big deal. I had a ton of energy after a nice nap and a class where I learned something.

Last week was a very uneventful week. I can always tell it wasn't that exciting when I have more journaling then I do pictures, which isn't always a bad thing. I had some funny stories to tell without any pictures, imagine taking a picture of me yelling at a parking attendant- not a good idea. So a story shall do.

Full spread. Notice, the lack of tons of pictures.

Left side:

Full view. Bottom left was from last Sunday when we stopped at the Farmers Market for the first time. So many fruits and veggies! I was so excited. We got everything for such a good price, it isn't that close to my house but a trip once a week will be nice. Bottom right was our Petco trip with Fifa. Steve petting the adoptable Beagles, they were so happy to be pet.

A close up of Week 5. I made the insert from random cardstock I have, I wanted something different besides the ones used in the Core Kit. American Craft letters, even with the Silhouette I like the alphabet stickers just as much! I did use my Silhouette Cameo for the "5" and the dates. I am learning how to use it a little more and I am loving it.

Priscilla, myself, and Fifa had a lazy day Tuesday. It was beautiful outside too! It does not feel like wintertime in NJ. I hope that it does not feel like wintertime in the Spring though. She was sick and I did not feel well so we stayed home.

Right side:
Lots of journaling. The most important pictures were the Saturday morning pictures of making breakfast together. Fifa also wanted to join in the festivities and would not take her eyes off of Steve, hoping he would drop something. You can also see the different shapes he made. My favorite was the Fifa pancake. I used a little chipboard banner for the date on one picture from Jenni Bowlin.

He smiled for my picture :) He knows how much I enjoy scrapbooking so he is willing to be in my pictures. I appreciate it. The "hello handsome" is from the Silhouette Cameo. LOVE IT.

Lastly, my friend Matt made it into the Rutgers newspaper. He does not go to Rutgers, he never has, he is from my hometown in South Jersey. He won a comedy show and I was so excited to see it in the paper. We went to one of his shows last month and it was great. We are attending another on on the 25th of this month and we are really excited for it. I hope he makes it big because he definitely deserves it.
