Project Life | Week 38

Hello and welcome to Week 16-22 September. I'm still very current with this project, and hope to catch up with posting over the next week or so. Right now life is out of it's normal routines with my Mom visiting and hubby being away a lot for work.  Grateful for PL to keep some grasp on what's happening with time.

This week here was fairly routine still. No inserts or extra photo's.

This page starts with an out-of-focus selfie of me getting some early morning on-line inspiration. Love it out of focus, as for me it records a week starting as a challenge :: Then there's a block  of everyday life moments :: Leggo (or something similar) instructions :: Liam in his school t-shirt after a visit from an animal farm to the school (he loved the porcupine and baby lion) :: Cake photographed at a little birthday celebration at a friend's (remember kicking off our shoes, sitting in the breeze and chatting about keeping silkworms and some-one's daughter's gap-year at a sculptor's family in the Karoo) :: Reuben staying out of school the one day (he had a sore foot on the day they had athletic trials) and us playing Monopoly.

On this page :: First salad crop from the potted garden (hand drawn word-art) :: Taking the kids for a practice photoshoot. The "Why I love this photo" card tells the story of me bribing them to pose. On that particilar photo you can see Liam totally at the end of his smiles but still putting in an effort for me. Love that :: The actual photo shoot was for a friend's daughter's matric dance. The beauty you see  here. It was my first official "shoot" and I so enjoyed it. Might do a blog post about it. The "Hello story" card was made from word art by Ali (that I recently picked up at the Designer Digitals sale) and has a pull out card behind it that tells the story of the photo session :: And the card bottom right contains a ribbon with text printed on it. I attended the Shine Women's conference and high tea at Bryanston Church and the ribbons were included in our goodie bags. It was such an uplifting morning, with great guest speakers. More about it here. 

I'll be linking up at The Mom Creative (Tuesday) and Simple as That (Saturday). 
And if any Project Life'ers missed it and would be interested: The Design Team call for 2014 is out on Becky's Blog and closing Sunday, 20 October.    


  1. I love hand drawn phrases on pictures and have been seeing them everywhere lately! Do you do it with pen or digitally before printing?

    1. Hi Laura, the "first crop" was done with a pen. But I also love adding digital Wordart to photo's!
