Project Life ~ Week 14

I'm so excited to remain caught up on my pages!  I don't think I have ever scrapbooked something as soon as it happened.  So this is unusual and wonderful all at the same time!  :)

Now that April has arrived we are finally starting to see signs of spring here in Pennsylvania.  In fact, yesterday was around 70 degrees!  It was gorgeous!  Honey and I went to do my C25K training on the bike trail in the morning and I bundled up like I always do.  I quickly found out that I didn't need to be so bundled.  The headband and gloves were not needed.  Yay!

Let me just share a cute story.  Heading south on the bike trail we passed a house where a little schnauzer dog came running after Honey.  She's such a scaredy dog that she couldn't wait to get away from him.  All 8 pounds of him.  (She weighs about 90 pounds!)  However on the way back, he was on the trail a few hundred yards from his home and when he saw us coming, he wasn't so brave anymore.  He couldn't seem to run fast enough to get back home.  Of course, Honey wouldn't have hurt him.  She may be big but she's very gentle.  Our gentle giant.  :)

Anyway, that made me chuckle.

Now onto my pages ...

I used a mixture of Seafoam and Kraft this week.  I wasn't crazy about the bright color of the title card on these pages so I changed it.  The beauty of digital.  :)  I kept the pages pretty simple with just some text on photos as embellishments.  I had to do a photo collage for our Easter photos.  I wanted to be sure to include all 3 kids.  Especially since I didn't appear to take any more photos of Keira this week!  We remedied that this past Sunday so you'll be seeing more of her next week.

AC Digitals released the new Cinnamon edition yesterday.  It is sooooo gorgeous!  All those browns and dark blues.  Oh my!  I am trying really hard not to scoop it up right now.  Especially since I already own several digital kits.  I'm not sure I can justify it.  Or maybe I can.  We'll see.  I have the rest of this week to get it at 20% off. 

Also Zulily has Shutterfly photo books for a great price through April 12.  (referral link)  You can get an 8x8 photo book for $10 or an 8x11 photo book for $15.  They are regularly $30 and $35 respectively, so that's a great savings!  The only bummer is that you are limited to only one of each size.  I made sure to scoop up one of each since my list of photo book ideas is pretty long.  :)

Thanks for stopping by!  I look forward to being inspired by some of the pages shared on The Mom Creative!  If you haven't already, you should go check some out.  There are some beautiful pages shared each week!

Have a great week!

Such beautiful photography, wow. I love the close-ups of the buds and bird and the fantastic B&W of the boys on the couch. Your spread really conveys a sense of place and season, even the title card matches the creamy light in the hiking pictures on the opposite page.

You're layouts are so much fun! Love how you pit a pic of each kiddo on Easter in the top box!

You are doing so good at keeping up. Another great week under your belt. Honey sounds like such a sweet dog. I love the gentle giants.
