project life: greek style!

I have documented the first two weeks of our vacation and am currently working on the third. The July Citrus Twist Kits happened to be travel themed and were absolutely perfect for recording memories from this trip. I was happy to work with the Pocket Life, Travel Add-on and Stamp Add-ons for July. The CTK exclusive stamps in the Pocket Life kit this month were the second in a series I designed for the club and I am thrilled with how they turned out! These pages are only the highlights from our trip. More on that at the end of this post...

{Week 23: Greece Week 1}
Flight details, my little travelers, beach playground and a lovely beginning...
 Awesome food, beach weather, relaxation. I made a little vellum bitty bag using my Silhouette to hold our boarding passes (the "Fly Away" card in the middle)...
 {Week 24: Greece Week 2}
More beach days, more good eats, goofing around with cousins, gorgeous scenery and the catch of the day...
 Week in review, catch of the day at the fish docks, favorite beach photos, Father's Day at sunset and family...
So, where are the inserts? The rest of the thousandS of photos? I have a plan. Since this is our normal vacation spot, I've decided to make a separate PL album just for Greece. Each time we go there will be a new divided section for that trip. I love the idea of being able to flip though multiple years of photos in the same locations, with the same people and seeing growth and change. I've ordered the Jade Core kit, need to choose an album and will make that dedicated album SIMPLE. As this year was my third trip to Greece, I will be going backward and beginning that album with our honeymoon photos. The beginning of our family! Stay tuned :)


back in time: project life catch up...

Before we left for Greece I had just one scrappy goal: get current with my project life album. Meaning, have my pages done right up until the day we left. Between gathering last minute things we needed, play dates and packing it was a bit of a feat but, I managed to get it done! Here is my week 22, using a lot of hybrid cards and the Jade digi PL kit:

{Week 22: May 27 - June 3}
I extended this PL week to include the day before we left for vacation and am glad I did. On Memorial Day we went to the zoo and took the Dino Safari. Or, as G called it, "Baba's Dinosaur Birthday party!" since opening day fell on Mr. Boom's birthday. A me and G park trip, the arrival of my Origami Owl Living Locket and a tuckered out toddler.
A park trip in the sweltering heat, brothers at play, Jack's silly TV viewing position,gifts from friends, getting back to Filofaxing and breakfast at the diner.
Caught up before vacation! Just don't ask me how far behind I am on the flip side...oops!


hello, can you see me? back to blogging...

It's been a month. And a few days. Funny how an international vacation, followed closely by a local vacation kind of throws things off! I'm back and will try to get back to my at least weekly posting!

Greece was incredible. The boys were amazing travelers. The weather was near perfect our entire stay. The sea was crystal clear. The food was, well, come on, it was Greece ;) And on that note. A little glimpse into what we ate...Instagram collage style:

In order from top left: giant apples, giant donuts, amazing pizza, hand cut oregano fries. spaghetti, cucumber and tomato salad, beach frappes, frappes at home, bouyatsa, grilled octopus, fresh pastries, greek groceries and tiropita.

And, a layout using two of my very favorite photos of the boys from our trip. I stretched myself and shot in manual most of the time. I was thrilled with the results! What a difference a few settings make. This layout is using my July Citrus Twist Pocket Life kit, featuring my second exclusive stamp designs. The title was designed and cut with my Silhouette and attached with twine.
Be back very soon with two weeks of Project Life from our trip!
