Project Life Week 24


We definitely had our ups and downs this week.  Andy is still not feeling much better, and he saw a total of three specialists this week, with still no definitive answers. On the upside, the boys and I went to see Madagascar 3 and also to a nearby waterpark, (a trip we'd planned before Andy got sick), and Bowen got to be in a promotional video (he calls it a commercial) with his Kindergarten class.

This week, I grabbed hold of the hexagon trend (I realllllllly would love a hexagon punch), and I used a newly released paperpack from The Lily Pad's Amber Clegg called the  Simple Things. I love the detailed patterns as well as the colors of the solids.  You'll notice that even my trusty "instagram collage" received a hexagonal (is that a word?) makeover this week.  I'm loving 'em!

You can find that paper pack here:

You may remember the silhouette of Bowen that I used in his room. I also wanted one in the album, so I printed it to include in the next layout where it "matched." 

The instagram 3x4 of the building where I work and the inside hallway were an awesome freebie from Design Editor. I love it, and will definitely be using it on a regular basis.  

Details:

Wilder said "Bowen, you are my best frayend (friend)!" when they were playing this week, so I had to incorporate that. 


I finally got to use confetti in my project life.  The glassine envelope contains some confetti I got at Hobby Lobby on clearance, and includes our ticket stubs from seeing Madagascar 3 on Saturday.
One of my favorite this week, was my weekly card. I used Amber's papers, and the lace/tape is from Michael's. The numbers and the hangers both came from Hobby Lobby.  I think Tim Holtz is a genius....how stinking cute are those clothes hanger clips?


I also had an insert this week to incorporate our Fun Day Thursday:

For this layout, I used the Chatterbox journal cards from Valorie Wibbens at the Lily Pad.  Have I mentioned that I love her stuff?  I adore everything she comes out with.
