I had so much fun putting this week together, even though I've been sick. In fact it's kind of been my place of refuge...when I've been laying in bed I've been thinking about how to put this week together.
I tried something new this week...something I've been wanting to try for many weeks, but didn't know if I'd have enough stuff to fill it...I made a Design C protector (currently out of stock) into 12 3x4 pockets. And I LOVE how it turned out...you'll be seeing me do this a lot more from now on.
At the bottom of side one I put our calendar from the last month...I thought at the end of each month it would be a fun thing to add in the album to show our everyday schedule.
And here's side two with all the 3x4's...see isn't it fun?
Some of my favorite cards...I used Lauren Reid's Jotsies 2...they had the perfect saying that I wanted for this card. And behind the card, I added in the tag that came on the pants...thought it would be a fun momento. :)
It was Dr. Suess's birthday this week and I had all these grand plans of fun foods, crafts and reading stories but I felt awful so we just stuck with the reading of stories. I loved how the picture turned out though, I just had the kids pile on my lap with the book and held the camera above me. I just made a red/white striped paper...it gives the perfect Suessical look. ;) And isn't that Suess quote amazing...it's by the fabulous CD of course!
My husband and I got to sneak out for a date night...we chose Buffalo Wild Wings. This is my only "paper" scrapped pocket. My husband just laughs when I get so excited about take-out boxes, or bags with logos, or tags from jeans etc...he knows right where it's going, in this album. But he thinks it's pretty funny that I look for those things now.
And my favorite card yet...of my middle one, he's so funny. He loves wearing glasses, he doesn't need to, he just likes to. He had these yellow plastic glasses he got at a friends birthday party last summer and he wore there everywhere. Well he's been a little obsessed with Harry Potter as of late, don't really know why...I think he's only seen the first movie once. But he loves it, so when we saw these Harry Potter glasses, we just had to get them for him. Doesn't he look adorable? I may or may not have drawn a scar on his head today with my eyeliner.... :)
