I meant to post this last week, but didn't get to it. I'm currently doing pretty well at keeping current. Yesterday started week 13 of the year (can you believe we are a quarter through 2013 already?) and my project life is completed through week 10, so not bad, not bad for M.E.
Here's a look at my pages for February.
Week 5 (left hand page)
Here we've got Babe and his pets and its also includes a quote from Buddy. While watching the US Figure Skating Championships, Buddy says to M.E.,"their skirts should be longer." That's my boy.
There's a little story about looking for LG's lost school shoes and Catholic Schools Week and LG's cubscout visit to the police station.
Week 5 (right hand page)
There's clips from the Thank You notes the boys wrote M.E. for sending them to their school. So cute to get to keep these clips forever. A screenshot of my phone that shows its 73 the last day of January. A selfie of M.E., in a new skirt, that I love. And of course, our honorary 4th son, in the last shot. He was here for the entire weekend. Love that I've included that as well.
Week 6 (left page)
Bits and pieces of life. I love this project. Here there's the crayons, I made for Babe's preschool class valentines. A little shot of the 49ers Gnome for the Super Bowl note and a selfie of my new haircut. I didn't take a lot of pictures this week so I used filler, which to M.E. is actually a good thing, because its the bits and pieces. A little card about what I'm currently watching on tv, reading, listening to, making, feeling and loving. Nice to capture that. Also there's a clip from envelope sent by Mamaw, it's nice to have her handwriting in here as well.
Week 6 (right page)
Here I left the top corner blank and included a shot of Buddy and his friends at the rained out birthday party. There's our God-Daughter and her brother pics and Babe with his bloody nose. On the bottom the invitations I made for the Laser tag party and and a nice shot of Babe and I's shadows.
Week 7 (left page)
I really like the top card of Babe taking a picture and the picture he took. This to M.E. is priceless. Then there's my Happy Mail, my first Studio Calico kit. The cross I made for Lent. The a couple of shots of the boys out and about.
Week 7 (right page)
This year's Valentines was great for the boys. They loved all their little gumball machine trinkets and such. In the middle there's a pocket holding two hearts that LG cut out for valentines. Super Cute. Then there's an iPhone pic of M.E., D and her friends during D's birthday scavenger hunt. I had so much fun with them. Then there's Buddy's birthday and all the details. I love how the ten and the cake picture turned out. Actually I think this is my best layout yet.
Week 8 (left page)
I little more filler this week as well, but that's how life is... some weeks are super busy and pictures don't get taken and some weeks there's not much going on, either way, I like filler just the same.
Like the teeny-tiny pencil I found in washing machine from Buddy's pocket. Are you kidding me? I think its great that I was able to use the "take note" card and add "with this".
There's the hearts again. Love that. and on the bottom there's the birthday boys laser party that turned out fabulous after all and M.E. at work.
Week 8 (right page)
So yes, we had a 75 degree day on Sunday for the laser party and then by Thursday we had 3" on snow. Oklahoma for you. There's Buddy's dominoes, snowman, the book I'm reading to the boys (its so good, I'll review it after we are done), LG at a Karate party and then Babe and one of his best friends. Of course a weekly recap and Babe doing laundry. I love that tiny clothes pin.
Week 9 (left page)
3 pictures total and it still looks great. yay! There's game the Man plays with the boys, a recap, random french fries on a random Tuesday, a quote by Buddy, a homework clipping and the tent shot.
Week 9 (right)
On the top, there was more I wanted to say, more to the "adult" boys than to anyone else. So I wrote it, then put a piece of star patterned vellum over it with the title "there's more to the story". That was its there but not in your face. I like that and I think the boys will like that too. Or their wives.
There's a very, blurry iPhone photo of a sunset. It was really cool and this picture doesn't do anything for it, but its a reminder to M.E. that unfortunately I see very few sunsets. It kind of drives M.E. nuts, but its city life and a busy life and sunsets can't be seen from our home. So when we were on our way to soccer, Buddy was like look at that, I already was. And so snapped a photo at stop light.
The other two pics are of LG being LG. Love him. And there's a grocery list and a blank but cool patterned card.
And there's February. Like I said, March will be done soon and I'll try to be quicker as posting it.
