4 project life | week 7

We had such a fabulous week! I wasn't so sure I was going to enjoy it much because my husband was gone on a business trip. It made it worse that he was gone because of Valentine's Day, then his birthday the day after. I was pretty upset when he originally told me he would be gone on these two special days, but it ended up being a good week with a great weekend...

Here's my 2 page spread for week 7...

...side one...

...and side two...

This week I started my kids making these green smoothie's and they love them! I just am so happy that I tricked them into eating spinach! :) 

Grandma and Grandpa got the kids Lady and the Tramp for Valentine's Day so we watched it this week together. It was a great night!

While my husband was in CA, he got VIP tickets to a concert...I love how this card turned out! (By the way, you're getting a sneak peak of a collab that's coming out Friday...me and one of my best friends created some frame cards, they're going to be so fun!)

We celebrated his b-day before he left, and I had to document his trip on these cute Travel Cards by Jacque Larsen. 

But the best part of our week took place over the weekend. Nana was generous enough to come watch the kids overnight so my husband and I could have a night away. I picked him up at the airport and we had a great time playing tourist in a town we hadn't ever been to without kids. It was a lot of fun.

So this week I added in an extra insert with just stuff from our weekend. I took a Becky Higgins Design C template, cut it in half, then stitched down the middle. It gave me 12 3x4 slots, 6 on front and 6 on back. I went with a matchy-matchy theme with these cards and I love the look it gives.

I added in a lot of memorabilia, like stuff from all the places we ate. It was fun picking up all sorts of stuff to use!

...and back... 

One of my favorite cards...we went to Tucanos (YUM!) and I was grabbing all their business cards, magnets etc. because I knew I wanted to add it to my album. The bird is from their magnet and it fit perfectly! :)  

Hope you had a great week too!
