oh, we're halfway there: project life update and a blog hop!

2014. you have been amazing, trying, awesome, fulfilling, frustrating and have not failed to surprise. We are at the halfway point this week. How? Moving to a new house, having a baby two weeks later and being home with three children under five years old might have gotten me a little behind in my scrapbooking. It's okay. Really. And blogging, well, you can see how well that's gone since my last post was...when exactly? Today, I'm sharing several weeks in my 2014 album. I am not caught up. Not at all. But, every week day moment that is documented is an accomplishment.

Follow along with me on today's Blog Hop sharing Project Life updates and inspiration...
Here is the entire line up!


I'm sharing five weeks worth of pages today. The first two are very simple, get them done types with very little embellishing. The others are pages created with my monthly Citrus Twist Kits...

Week Eight: This week, we had lots of at home down time and special visits with family.


Week 10: This week found us settling a bit more into a routine as a family of five. The weather let up enough that we were able to enjoy a bit of fresh air and our little sweetheart started smiling!


I love writing out stories and documenting events but, sometimes a short hand list works just as well! This card from the Kiwi core kit was perfect for summing up this week.



Week 14: Exploring a local park for the first time, Amalia is two months, Gold Card status and G attending his first Home Depot Kids Workshop.



Week 19: Mother's Day, our new yard in bloom, time with friends and family.


Week 20: Creative play, a visit with my mom, my new iPhone arrived, a visit to a local farm and lots and lots of coffee.

I had a LOT of photos I wanted to use this week and really am trying not to use inserts, to conserve space in my albums. This layout is an example of how to get the story told while maximizing those photo slots: 1) my date card is a list of highlights, 2) this filler card (below) has a little punched notch revealing the hidden journaling cards I slipped behind.



Thank you for joining me! I hope you'll continue the Blog Hop and find inspiration for your own Project Life album.

Gorgeous pages! I absolutely love your handwriting. I've been to fishkill farms also, we went apple picking there last October. Your pages make me miss the Hudson valley (we just moved last month to Saratoga county for work).
