28 project life | week 3 + a freebie!

Well, another week done!! I felt much more into this week than last...I dunno...I loved doing it last week too, I just think I was coming off the high of the first week and didn't feel very creative. But this week I'm back into my groove. I had so much fun putting it together!

I had an extra insert this week, my daughter had Parent Teacher Conference so I put her scores and stuff from her teacher in there. I figure one day it will be great to look back on and see her progress!


And here's what's on the back of that insert...a cute picture my daughter drew of our family. This is why Project Life appealed so much to me...I could include all that artwork I was just throwing away. Love it!

Here's my full 2 page spread without the insert....

...the first side...

...and the second side...

One of my very favorite cards is this one of my, starting my new diet. I got the idea from my fabulous friend Tiff...

...it has a secret flap that you can open up and I put text right on the picture of all of my measurements. Of course I've hidden that, I can't share everything you know! :) 

On this card, I printed out the menu from their website, and made all the text lighter except for what I ordered. :) In the card next to it, I added in a conversation I had with my son...he's so funny!

I just loved how this one turned out!

My husband was flying this week and got stuck because we were having huge snowstorms here. I added in the weather image from my phone on one pocket. On the other pocket I used his ticket as the background and his baggage claim ticket in their too!

This was a fun card, I just created the bubble in Photoshop, by using the shape took and text cut out of it. Then I cut the picture around the bubble. 

Can't wait to see your week 3's! Link me up!
