Project Life Week 37 and 38

Hi everyone!

When I said in my last post that I was up to date, that's not what I meant. I'm not completely up to date. I haven't catch up on 20 weeks in 2 weeks, don't worry, I'm human too. ;) I only meant that even though I'm working backwards to fill up the gap, I'm also working forward and on that forward side, I'm up to date. :) Voilà! That's what I meant. :)

So here are my weeks 37 and 38. They are very special to me. Here's why:

Last week I worked on a very special project I had for a long time: I worked on my very own Project life cards. :) And I used them this week and it was such a special feeling to see my own work in my own album. Here's one of the cards. There's a watercolor look to it. Soft, but still vibrant. I'll point you to the next ones as I go.

That week, we had our first meeting in Arielle's classroom and I was happy that my husband could come along with me. I loved to sit at my daughter's desk and see what she's working on in class. Look at the story she wrote… hilarious!!! :) You'll see that later on. ;)

 Here's another card I made. I was working on a "different" pattern than what we always see and these were not supposed tu be bubbles, but I finally paired them with pool pictures so yeah, they turned out to be great bubbles. :) The label is hand drawn and is part of the card (I didn,t draw it over the printed card - not sure I'm being clear) This bold and beautiful yellow arrow flair is from my friend Caroline Elliam at cuts2luv.  You should check her Etsy shop out! :)

Here's another card of mine. One of my favorite!! I love the bold and sunny colors. The background is watercolor and the lines are hand drawn.

In an 8.5x11 page protector I slipped what I brought back from my daughter's school. She had made us a beautiful drawing!! I added the little note we left her on her desk and a picture of one of her really cute project that was on the wall "first day jitters". :)

To tell the story, I simply added a little card that I attached with a tiny paperclip.

On the other side of the drawing I inserted the news letter I get every week from her teacher. Not sure I'll print them every week, but I find that it's a nice way to keep track of the progress they are making in class.

On the right page I added a picture that my youngest daughter made. She's just starting drawing people and I find them SO cute!!!! This 4x6 card is also from my collection. In the label that was intended for the date, i let my daughter write her name. :) I love this little blue heart!!

There's another card of mine right here, this time with some French on it!!!! That's one thing missing in the French community: PROJECT LIFE CARDS IN FRENCH!!! So I thought if I can make some, it would be fun for my French speaking friends. I just don,t know just yet how I'll distribute them. Still thinking about my options.  So on this yellow one we can read: right now. And right under there I've stamped "routine no.1" from my other friend Tchoubi (Nathalie Grégoire) who just launched her shop this week!! I am so excited for her and I'm very happy that she asked me to be on her design team.

This overlay "les beaux jours" is also from Tchoubi. I simply layered it over one of my cards.

Here's the card.

And here's the overlay. :) So cute!!!!!!

Week 38

Here's another one of my favorite PL spread and I'm using a bunch of my cards. It's such a wonderful feeling!!! Sorry for the blurry spots but I'm working on some secret stuff. ;)

This beautiful 4x6 card is from my friend Heidi Swapp. Have you seen her "dreamy" edition yet?? If not, you've got to see it!!! Fabulous stuff.

This little cutie is from me. ;) I love the yellow drop and the ombre yellow/green blue effect. :)

I wish I could have NOT blurred these cards as the pink orange one is probably my favorite!! Look at this little heart in the tiny speech bubble!! And the colors are so vibrant!!

Another of my cards. I love the texture in the lines. So yummy in real life!! The little dear is from a kit from Studio Calico.

We had such a wonderful day at that ranch where we could feed the animals. Another one of my cards right here. :)  And so ends my week 38.

Hope you enjoyed!! And I hope to see you again soon.
