Project Life Week 6

This week has been a bit painful on the creative front. I just haven't had any mojo and the Chinese New Year holiday kicked my behind. I knuckled down today and finished Week Six of Project Life which was dominated by the Chinese New Year festivities at Scarlett's school.

Given Chinese New Year was the major feature of the week I went into my paper stash and pulled out a selection of red and yellow papers to go with the season. It felt good to cut into some papers I have been holding onto for a while. I also made use of some new Elle's Studio and MME labels I picked up over the weekend and some of the last scraps from my January Project Life kit from Studio Calico. I am crossing my fingers that my February one arrives soon.

Some of the features of this week included making home made pizza, breakfasting out in Little India with Scarlett's teacher from last year and purchasing more cars to race down the hallway. Scarlett has been spending a lot of time writing and drawing so that was also recorded. I am in desperate need of some of the Project Life envelopes to store some examples of her work.

Page two is full of CNY festivities from Scarlett's school. We had a wonderful morning with Scarlett trying out a range of traditional activities including dumpling making and calligraphy. Many of the children dressed in Chinese outfits and Scarlett was very proud of the dress and shoes she chose.

I am thrilled with this free CNY printable from Geralyn Sy at In A Creative Bubble. Not only is it beautiful but it also the first image I printed on my new Selphy printer that hubby gave me for Valentines Day. It was much easier to use and set up than I expected. Now I just have to sort out the wireless printing and I expect my Project Life will be revolutionised.

We do not have much planned this weekend. We might head out to the Canadian International School fair on Saturday and of course we have ballet on Sunday. I am hoping to record a day in the life of us on Sunday. I hope I remember!

Have a wonderful weekend!
