Project Life Week 19

All my crafty time this week has been taken up working on my knitting project as the the deadline for completion is coming ever closer. I did manage to squeeze in some Project Life time last night and another week is complete.


The top and bottom pairs of pockets are the reverse of the Simple Stories cards from last week. The muted colours worked well with this week's pictures too. The middle row is a pair of April cards from Studio Calico. I kept everything super simple as the Simple Stories pages are pretty embellished already. The aqua letter are BG for Studio Calico and there is a MME label and a button and that is all she wrote!

One of the major events this week was Miss Three joining the Tiara Society. This is a princess themed play space near our home with an enormous collection of princess costumes, princess themed toys, books and activities. She was in heaven. We have taken out a membership so I can see we will be visiting there at least once a month. We also received our first collection of Origrami prints. These were super and we cannot wait to collect enough images to order some more. I had a very furry scrappy assistant and an enormous beetroot and apple juice - definitely my new favourite poison.

The second half of the spread is dedicated to Mother's Day which fell on the Sunday of this week. I used mainly SC cards and an additional Becky Higgins PL card from the Clemetine collection. All the photos shown are from that day with the exception of the giant bowl of ramen. I kept this half of the spread really simple too with just a couple of additional Amy Tangerine stickers.

My favourite part of Mother's Day was the little interview that my husband did with Miss Three about me. They gave it to me in a frame and I keep it by my bed now. It just makes me smile.

I especially love the little face she drew on the heart.

We did the usual Sunday run of ballet and yoga but we then made an impromptu trip to Sentosa for a drink by the ocean. We had a lovely time there on a scorching hot afternoon. There is a marina full of some very expensive boats and some lovely areas to walk and admire the new restaurants and bars that have sprung up there. It was a very relaxing end to the day.

I had a couple of unrelated photos and one large pocket at the bottom left of the page so I just popped them on 3 x 4 cards together in the 4 x 6 slot. I must remember to do this more often as I like the effect.

Miss Three looks like a cross between a hard core rapper and someone with the mumps in this shot!

I intend to complete week 20 tonight and be (gasp) completely up to date! I would like to try and stay up to date until we head back to New Zealand for a couple of weeks in July - then the wheels will fall off again I am sure!

How is your PL going? Do you still love it or are you not as thrilled as you were at the beginning of the year?
