The Countdown continues, and Project Life Tuesday...

I have two weeks of Project Life to share with you today, but before I do, I want to say a quick thank you to Irma, who let me know that she was inspired by my new planner, and linked up my blog in her latest post.  She started a new project that is super cool - check out her post here!  Thanks so much Irma, you made my day and I am honored!

I had so much fun putting these two weeks of project life together!  It seems like that always happens right after I have a week where I'm feeling a little blah about it - ha.

First, I was so inspired by this post by Michelle Wooderson, that I pulled out my supplies and created these journaling cards...

 It was a blast and so easy to do, just using some scraps, tags and washi tape.  I will definitely be doing more of these!  Michelle always has wonderful Project Life posts! Thanks for the inspiration Michelle!

Onto my Project Life pages...

Here is my week of July 16 - 22...

Right side closeup...
 The little pink birdies are from Simple Stories, and the "Love is all you need" card is from 7 Gypsies.  Ephemera here includes the price tag from my new funky socks ($1.25 a pair - I could hardly believe it!), a tag from Michael's green tea, and a sticker from my new planner.


Left side closeup...
 Another typical shot of Johnny in one of my scrappy embellishment boxes.  He always does that and I never get tired of how cute it is - ha. Ephemera here includes my name tag from my monthly crop with the girls, and the stamped house, which was from the crop too.  Archiver's was letting us play around with Claudine Hellmuth's two-step stamps.  LOVE them!


Next we've got July 23 - 29 (I started using my new journaling cards)...

Left side closeup...
 Ephemera here includes two postcards from Northern Minnesota, where I went for work meetings this week.  I have a thing for postcards, and they are perfect for Project Life!  I buy one every time I go up north, and I love that even though I've been up there a bazillion times, I have never had to buy the same postcard twice.

 Right Side Closeup...
Ephemera here includes a sticky note from Michael that was waiting for me when I got home on Wednesday, a receipt from dinner on Tuesday night, and a copy of a text message I got from my sister that made me laugh out loud! 

In other news...




There is only one day left until August 1st and the start of our fifth anniversary party over at  Scrapping the Music!  We are very excited for our month-long celebration, and we hope you will be joining us!

We are going to have a special format for the month of August which will include more ways to win, more prizes,  more songs for inspiration, plus a fun guessing game!

Please stop by and play along with us this month.  We would love to see your creativity and enjoy your friendship during our month-long party!!!!!

Thanks so much for visiting my friends!  I wish you a wonderful Tuesday!

Hi..I'm not sure that I understand the little cards are they suppose to be about anything on each day or do you create them based on what your day was like? Are they made out of any type of paper? Do I treat each card like a journal page in my journals? sorry so many questions? just want to understand better. thank you, Debra
