Shine and Delightful Templates

Liz has some great new templates in the Lilypad Store today. One set is great for patriotic or celebratory pages, and the other is a great stash-building set (perfect for just about any kind of page). They are both 20% off through July 2, 2017.

Delightful Templates have 3 or 4 photos spots and some fun angled paper layering in the background. I like how these span the page but don't fill the page - a nice happy medium with good sized photos but not overpowering.

Shine Templates are great for scrapping your patriotic festivities - they have some great fireworks stamps bursting out from behind the photos. I like the mix of rectangular and circular photo spots.

This was sort of a weird week. I was gone from the house with different kids for several days, some for doc appointments, some for homeschool and camp stuff. Then we had to celebrate a birthday a few days early since daddy was going to be gone for a week. We did manage to do a lot of bike riding, tea parties and game playing.


Lately I've had to really get these pages done quickly since I don't have a lot of extra time. These pages are a priority for me since they mean so much to my kids, that means I can't be picky. My kids don't care about shadowing, fancy photos or embellishments. They want to see pictures, videos and read the journaling I write. As much as I would love to make these showstopper pages it's all about getting them done for my kids. Keep that in mind when you are working on your weekly pages. Who and what are you doing it for? If it's for creativity, then by all means, take your time and enjoy the process. If it's for someone who really just wants to see the pictures and read the stories, keep it simple. Simple can be beautiful.


Now to hopping Week 26 is a little more low key...but it probably won't be since the hubby is gone for a week. Alone for 5 days with 7 kids. Eeek!

I think it will just be easiest if I share the journaling right from my page.

Journaling Left Page:

Going from left to right. Matthew loves to make his own omelet. Isaac went with mom for a quick grocery trip, Abi and Isaac love to draw on the "new" white-board. Chinese dinner at home. Lots of painting this week. Date night for mom and dad, which included Larb at the local Thai restaurant and a quick trip to Wal-mart for some groceries!


Journaling Right Page:

Tuesday was our last day of school. Wednesday the kids had testing and then we went to lunch with Grandma to celebrate the end of the school year.

On Saturday Kyla and Matthew ran the Braveheart fun run. Matthew won 1st place for boys. Daddy, Ashlyn, Emmie and their friend, Maggie ran the 5k. They all did a great job.




That's it for this week. Are you keeping up with your scrapping goals?

Monday's Highlight: See the World by Alyna

Traveling the World Templates by Scrapping with Liz
Going places - bundle & Free with Purchase by WendyP Designs
I instantly fell in love with this page when I saw it in the SwL Gallery. I love her clustering. I especially love the repeated patterned paper on the top and bottom of the page. Even though there is a lot going on on this page it all comes together nicely. Great job Alyna!

Make sure to share your pages in my group. I love looking at them each week!

Week 23 was mostly about VBS (Vacation Bible School). We were at church every night teaching, learning and having fun. There was also dental visits for Abi and Isaac. They were so good and just too cute. Afterwards we went for shakes. Then there was a birthday party on Saturday.



Seriously love these people.

Week 22: Hiking, Water, Cheesecake and More!

Today I'm going to just copy and paste the journaling from my pages because my brain is too scattered to write anything new. That's what 7 kids will do to you!

Journaling from the left page:

This week started with a hike on Whiteside Mountain. It was our first real hike with Abi and Isaac. We had a picnic and stopped for ice cream when we were done. Then we went to Grandma and Grandpa's for a little Memorial Day cook out. The kids had fun roasting marshmallows with Grandpa.

We watched a friend and fellow homeschooler participate in the National Spelling Bee!

Journaling from right page:

On Friday we went to the pool. It was Abi and Isaac's first time swimming. There was a little fiasco with some throw up and we had to sit out of the pool for an hour, but we managed and the kids had fun. On Saturday, after a bunch of yard work we went up to the creek and did a little tubing. The kids just love the water.


That's it for Week 22. It was a blast.
