Project Life Week #2

Just a typical week in my life, busy with work and day-to-day errands.  Saturday started off a relaxing weekend.  I worked on completing week one of project life and continued with my scanning project of childhood photos.  I am about half way through album 2 of 4.  On Saturday night, my mother, sister and I had tickets to a ballet documentary "First Position".  The movie followed 6 young ballet dancers on their journey toward the finals in the Youth American Grand Prix.  What a wonderful movie and an eye-opening look into these young lives. Sunday was quite typical, 11:30 Mass followed by lunch with the family (Dad grilled steaks) and then a little shopping at Tj Maxx and Marshalls.  It has become Sunday ritual!  Monday started off a busy work week due to last week's roll out of the new system, but I managed to squeeze in a few fun things.  The adorable Amy Tan was able to save me a kit from her most recent class.  It came on on Monday and I got started creating right away.  The company kids did a showoff for family and friends of all the dances competing at nationals on Tuesday night.  WOW! Our kids are gonna kick some butt!  Nationals will fall right into Week #4 of project life and I can't wait to spend 6 days with my girls in Orlando at Tremaine.  Wednesday was a "work from home day".  I always manage to get a lot more done on these days when the phone isn't ringing off the hook or people are stopping by my desk.  I even managed to get a little online shopping in.  The 27th was Studio Calico's reveal for their July Kit "Elmwood Park".  Reveals make me so nervous!  I usually spend a couple of days before digging through the message boards trying to decide what I am going to buy and stay within a "scrap" budget.  Everything goes so quick on reveal day.  The plan was to pick up two add-ons ("Twisty Slide" and "Four Square") along with more color and more patterned paper this month.  I managed to get both add-ons into my cart but somehow had two of "twisty slide".  Well there is no way to change the quantity and i had to delete both from my cart and tried to re-add just the one but it was sold out.  Good news, stayed up till 11 PM and managed to snatch "twisty slide".  I was able to get more color but not more patterned paper.  I went with 3 kits (main + 2 add-ons) because i loved the color combinations and last months kit is practically "killed" with 3 completed layouts and week #1 of PL.  SC released, for the first time, digital elements to go with the July Kits.  Being a silhouette owner myself, I picked up 5 cutting files along with a printable of journaling cards and shapes.  Oh SC, you never fail to impress, I now have more elements for PL!  My order also included Mistery Huey's Sunshine Mist and more color from the Take Note and Abroad collection which were part of Last Call.  To top off my Wednesday, my package from "Swap Your Stash" arrived.  On SC's Forums, I joined in on Caz's "Sway your stash" were she pairs you with another member and you send a package stash items.  I was match with Maria from AZ who likes teal, yellow, white and kraft.  She sent me a packaged filled with pink, Amy tangerine, and project life elements.  Oh i was so excited to see those PL pages and blank journal cards! Although Thursday was filled with work projects, I did manage to squeeze in time for my submission to American Crafts Design Team.  This is #29 on my "30 things in Year 30". I have applied twice before and am hoping this is my year. Friday rounded out the work week with a half day followed by some grocery shopping at target and house cleaning.  All in all a typical busy week, just the way i like it!

Here is the loot i received from Maria for SC's Swap Your Stash.....

Project Life Week #1

As stated an a previous post, I decided to start a project life album for the first time.  I started on Saturday June 16th, my 30 birthday.  Here is the complete post. on the b-day celebrations. So on to project life.  I completed three pages for week one.  Supplies used where mainly all from Studio Calico's June Kit - So Cal along with a few random extras from my stash.  Along with my birthday celebration, the week was filled with shopping trips to prepare for florida, my grandmother's 82nd birthday and major system roll-out at work.

Loving project life so far. Currently working on putting together this past week's layout.

"Fabulous, Flirty & 30!"

So Saturday marked the end of my 20's..... That's right, I'm officially "Fabulous, Flirty & 30".

My birthday celebrations kicked off a week early with the June birthday luncheon at work. The whole department gets together once a month and celebrates all those with birthdays. For June we went to one of my favorite places, La Carreta. I got my usual, "Flaunta Special" and spent a wonderful two hours chatting with co-workers. Once back at work, we celebrated with cake. Love me some strawberry cake!

After a long week at work and teaching summer dance classes, it was good to have a half day on friday. I enjoyed an afternoon of scrapbooking! Way too many layouts to post here, but i do post all in Studio Calico's member gallery: Also have a new addition to the scrap room. I like to enjoy my layouts before i file them in their permanent Photo Freedom albums. I hung a basic drapery rod on the wall and using binder rings and page protectors turned sideways, I can display 5 at a time.

Saturday's celebration kicked off with a FORMAL lunch with the family.My mother and sister cooked all morning. On the menu was Crab-topped catfish, butter potatoes, green bean casserole and Jungle Juice. To stay with the healthy theme, instead of a traditional birthday cake, I was given an Edible Arrangement filled with fruit. Best Birthday Cake Ever!

After lunch followed "present time". Even at 30 (wow that was hard to type), I still get all giddy on my birthday. I ended up with all kinds of goodies; money, a double hammock for my back porch and a sewing machine.

My official birthday concluded with a night of scrapping with Izzy. Perfect end to perfect birthday!
