Project Life Weeks 17 and 18

Finally I have caught up a week and it looks like (of course this will jinx it) that I might actually get another week done this week so I will be up to date. I really do enjoy this project so much. These are probably my favourite albums.

Week 17 was dominated by Scarlett's first school Sports Day. It was well organised and a lot of fun. Given that it was on a Saturday and a long way from the school the turn out was really good. The other photo I love from this spread was taken that day. It is of Scarlett and her frenemy, Alex. They have a lot of ups and downs in their friendship but when they are good friends they are adorable together.

Most of this page is the reverse of Simple Stories Urban Traveller and Vintage Bliss lines. The flair is from Paper Bakery and the Dymo look labels are from Pebbles.

 The other event of the week was my birthday. I was given a beautiful dairy free cake by my husband. The two birthday themed journalling cards are from October Afternoon's Cakewalk line. The two portrait photos are backed by Crate Paper patterned paper. The two larger black cards are from one of my Studio Calico PL kits.

Week 18 was a quiet week with a very busy weekend. During the week Scarlett started showing more realistic drawing skills and we enjoyed some mid week swims. On Sunday she had a little graduation ceremony for successfully completing Level One of her Yogabugs class.

I kept these papers very simple. I just used the reverse of the other sides with the exception of the Tim and Beck journalling card with the sun on it which was part of one of my Studio Calico kits. A handful of stars and enamel dots and that was pretty much done.

On Saturday we went to the Gardens By The Bay where over 40,000 tulips from Holland were on display. The dome was temperature controlled and very pleasant on a typical sticky Singapore day. We then decided to brave the Arts and Science Museum with Scarlett and took in two exhibits - The Mummy straight from the British Museum (no cameras allowed sadly) and the Art of the Brick exhibit with some amazing art made from Lego. We enjoyed both shows thoroughly and even Scarlett was able to happily be in the museum for over two hours. It was a great day out. We also had a very long visit to the Pandora shop to get my bracelet cleaned and Miss Three fell in love with all the little charms.

This page is really flat but the Simple Stories Vintage Bliss line has enough interest to stop it from being boring. The centre row of pockets is using some cards from the Becky Higgins Clementine collection. The top left card is a Studio Calico card - the green is not quite as bright as it appears here.

Thanks for visiting. I hope you enjoyed this little peek into what we have been up to of late!
