If you’re reading my blog through a blog reader, click on over and check out my re-designed blog! The re-design is part of my 1,000th blog post celebration, which will be happening soon! You won’t want to miss it, because I’ll be having SEVEN giveaways, and they’re all very cool prizes related to what I blog about the most these past few years! :)
On to Project Life! Still keeping up & loving it!
On Saturday (8/13) we went running at Lake Miramar for the first time in a while. I hadn’t run in two weeks due to my sinus infection, and Todd had an injured ankle and calf. Todd sanded, stained, and varnished our front door so it looks new again. I went to Michaels while he worked on that, and brought him home a Pomegranate Blueberry Ice Blended drink, his favorite. On Sunday (8/14) we had lunch with Monika & David at Do Re Mi House, a Korean BBQ restaurant.
For the week title page, I used a Everyday Striped Journaling Circle by Elle’s Studio, Island Fun Inchie stamps by Inkadinkado, and punched out the stamped sun with a Martha Stewart punch. The Padres baseball ticket is related to photos on the next page. I printed some journaling off the computer onto a Becky Higgins 3x4 Grid Journal Card.
On Monday (8/15), we went to a Phil’s BBQ tailgate at the San Diego Padres game. All proceeds went to charity. It was so fun!
I created a 3x4 journaling space on the right side of a 4x6 canvas in Photoshop. Then I copied journaling from my blog and printed it out on 4x6 white cardstock. Then I adhered the photo onto the left side of the cardstock.
On Wednesday (8/17) after work, we drove down to Coronado to have dinner on the Sun Deck of the Hotel Del Coronado. It was a perfect summer evening at the beach! I put the menu in one of the 4x6 slots.
Then on Friday (8/19), Todd had his first open water ocean swim this year, in preparation for his triathlon in September.
In the upper right photo collage, I used Amber Clegg’s digital Date Dots brushes in Photoshop to stamp the circle date on the photo before printing it out. Absolutely love those Date Dots, they’re so versatile! In the bottom right photo, I stamped on one of Ali Edward’s digital Summer Sentiment Stacks to the right of Todd. On this page I did all the journaling on the computer in Photoshop first, then printed them out onto Project Life journal cards with design on them. I took the designs into account when I spaced my journaling in Photoshop.
Another week of Project Life! :)
